Race Series

Historic  Motor  Racing  is proud to offer some exciting racing in 2016 


U2TC, the renowned series for pre-1966 under two-litre touring cars goes from strength to strength and is considered by many to be the finest touring car series in Europe for car preparation and driving standards.  U2TC has five rounds this year, some with two races per weekend.


The 1000km race at Donington will be a special into-the dusk three hour race that has attracted a great variety of pre-1972 prototypes, touring and GT cars.  There is also an invitation class for some later GT cars of similar performance.  This will be a very special event at the Donington Historic Festival.

The Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy for Historic Cars is a prestigious feature race at the Silverstone Classic for early spec cars that are not often seen on the circuit.  A gentlemanly affair where precious cars can be driven at a big, International event for the coveted Royal Automobile Club Trophy.

At the Donington Historic Festival (April 30-May 2) the 1000km series will be revived for a very special, one-off three-hour race for pre-1972 Prototypes, Touring Cars and GT cars and including Pre-’66 V-8 Touring Cars.  U2TC will have a one-hour race.


Prix de l’Age d’Or (June 3-5).  As last year there will be a special Mini Cup for the best performing Mini at the Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or.  The circuit is so suited to the Minis, we are expecting a strong Mini class.  After finding a number of drivers would prefer two shorter races to the one-hour format, U2TC will two out the two 40” race format at Dijon.





The Silverstone Classic has become a must-do meeting.  U2TC will be a feature race on the Sunday this year, when there will be no fewer than four race for touring cars of various ages in a promotion known as “Tin Top Sunday”.   Entries are already pouring in.  The Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy for Historic Cars will keep its familiar Sunday lunchtime slot and feature genuine cars of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.


The Spa Six Hour meeting needs no introduction.  Everyone loves it.  U2TC will be there with a BIG grid.


Imola Classic 21-23 October:  A new circuit for U2TC is Imola.  A wonderful circuit in a wonderful part of Italy.  Don’t miss it!  2 x 40” races.
