The Historic Sports Car Club has partnered with Racing Spirit to be an associate supporter of its burgeoning Thundersports Series in 2021.
Racing Spirit is a fast-growing brand servicing three main fan bases of classic cars, classic bikes and aircraft with beautifully designed, handcrafted merchandise. Products are intended to be practical and functional, employing the intentions, skills and materials from each era. The association with Thundersports will centre on its alcohol products, notably Racing Spirit Gin.
To support the Thundersports racers, bottles of Racing Spirit Gin will be presented to the race winners and class winners at each of the four Thundersports races in 2021. Each bottle will be personalised for HSCC Thundersports.
In addition, the winner of the race at the prestigious Silverstone Classic (30 Jul-1 Aug) will win a stunning resin sculpture of a Porsche 917 crafted by renowned sculptor Greg Percival. The HSCC hopes that it’s Patron-in Chief, and 1970 Le Mans winners in a 917, Richard Attwood will be able to make the podium presentation.
In addition to the Thundersports awards, Racing Spirit Gin will be presented as podium awards for the two UK rounds of the HSCC’s Historic Formula 2 Series at Donington Park (2/3 April) and the Silverstone Classic.
Simon Joy, MD of Racing Spirit, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the HSCC this year and are very excited at the prospect of attending these exciting and prestigious events. We are looking forward to some fantastic weekends of racing: the HSCC is the perfect partner for our brand and we look forward to meeting many of its members at the events.”
Andy Dee-Crowne, CEO of the HSCC, added: “We are very grateful to Racing Spirit for its support. I’m sure our drivers will enjoy a drink to toast their success when they get home and put their feet up! In addition, we have a special deal for our members to buy alcohol from Racing Spirit’s expanding range.”
HSCC Thundersports is open to an extensive range of cars, including those of the type used in the World Championship, FIA GT Championship and FIA 2 Litre Sports Car Championship up to 1981, along with Can-Am sports-racing cars from the heydays of the category in the 1970s.
