Since its inaugural race at Donington late in 2018, the HRDC has successfully built up its Classic Alfa Challenge series in 2019 and will continue it into 2020 with a flagship race at the Silverstone Classic for the marque in its 110th anniversary year. Alfa races always attract good grids, the Alfa Revival Cup series in Italy, and the Scuderia del Portello-run Tutto Alfa races at Monza, being cases in point. Not many single marques would be able to do that. It is therefore hoped that a full grid of 75 Alfas from all over Europe will put on a fitting show to celebrate the milestone in the history of a company that has produced more racing cars and more top results than any other.
This race is open to any classic or historic production-based Alfa Romeo from the 750 – 116 range of models. Cars must be recognised by one or any of the respective organisations, such as the FIA, HRDC or HSCC. All cars must run on treaded tyres and no slicks or cut slicks are allowed. The race format will consist of 1 x 20-mins qualification session and 2 x 20-mins races, all sessions taking place on the afternoon of each day, from 31 July to 2 August.
Not only is this the 110th anniversary of Alfa Romeo, but it is also the 30th anniversary of the Silverstone race meeting and bumper grids are expected for all races including this very special one-off Alfa race. Contact www.hrdc.eu for entries.
