The Historic Sports Car Club has unveiled its 2021 race programme, covering nine race meetings on nine different circuits and headlined by weekends on the Silverstone and Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuits and the Oulton Park Gold Cup.

New for 2021 is an extended two-day mid-summer meeting at Donington Park and a return to Mallory Park for a weekend event in September. As before, the HSCC will also be the organising club for the high-profile Silverstone Classic, which will run from Friday to Sunday, 30 July-1 August.

Other highlights include an early summer weekend at Cadwell Park for the Wolds Trophy and the annual Championship Finals meeting on the Silverstone National Circuit in October. The Brands Hatch Indy date now moves to a Friday to join the Grand Prix circuit weekend, making a three-day event using both versions of the famous Kent track. The season opens in mid-April with a weekend at Snetterton.

The provisional 2021 HSCC calendar is:

Sat/Sun 17/18 April: Snetterton 300

Sat/Sun 22/23 May: Silverstone Grand Prix

Sat/Sun 5/6 June: Cadwell Park

Andy Dee-Crowne, CEO of the HSCC, said: “We’re very pleased to announce our 2021 dates. We’ve listened to our members and are delighted to offer a calendar that gives our customers a nicely-spaced set of dates at the most popular tracks. No one can currently predict where the UK will be with the COVID pandemic by the start of next season but we are very hopeful that we will be able to run a full programme of racing in 2021.”
