News from Peter Schleifer, driving force behind the European Historic Can-Am & Sportscars series, is that he is branching out with a grid to include Le Mans cars from 1982-2004, to be run in collaboration by Germany’s largest historic racing club, FHR. The new series, ‘Group C Classics’ will welcome all sports prototypes from the Group C era up to the furious days of the LMP cars born in the beginning of the new millennium. “We have not forgotten to create a home for the GT cars from those years as well,” said Schleifer.
To launch the new series, Schleifer’s Can-Am & Sportscars group will invite the Group C Classic cars to join them in two races at the FHR Spring Classic at Hockenheim in early May. “If there is a Can-Am, a 2-litre racer, Group C1 or C2, CN, C3 or LMP car up to 2004, please join us. We will be for sure at the Oldtimer GP, so it`s time to join,” urged Schleifer.
With all DMSB permits in place, further events will have separate races for each series.
