Historic Motor Racing News proudly supports three of the best race series in Europe.
Pre-'63 GT - It Started at the Silverstone Classic
In 2009 we helped to put together a grid of Pre-’63 GT cars for the Silverstone Classic and the response was immediate and enthusiastic! Amongst the entries were Short wheelbase Ferraris, DB4GT Astons (and even a genuine pre-’63 Project car), AC Aces, MGA Twincams, an incredibly historic Sebring TR3, SZ Alfas, Lotus Elites, E-types, Morgans – all to genuine pre-1963 specification. This grid merited its feature race status and was the beginning of the Pre-'63 GT series that followed.
The object of this series is to promote cars that have become more and more rare in historic racing today because of the competition they encounter from modern replicas and highly developed racing cars. This series is for genuine, original and historic cars driven by enthusiastic owners. If you have a particularly original car, we would like to hear from you.
Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy
The Royal Automobile Club has bestowed the honour of presenting the winner of the Silverstone race each year with the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy for Historic Cars. This is the real deal and is a perpetual trophy presented by the Royal Automobile Club.
Pre-'63 GT was recognised as the Race Series of the Year 2011 at the inaugural International Historic Motoring Awards.
In 2014 Pre-'63 GT will race for the Pre-’63 GT Trophy at three Peter Auto race meetings within the Sixties Endurance grid where the Pre-’63 cars will have their own podium and classification. In addition, there will be two pre-’63 GT-only races in the UK.
