The traditional start to the German Historic Motorsport season is the Bosch Hockenheim Historic event, dedicated to the memory of Jim Clark. This year, on 7-8 May, the feature race at the long-standing event will be a new Group C Super Cup race for Group C, IMSA & GTP cars running to 1982-1993 specification. With support from competition suspension specialists and main sponsor, KW automotive GmbH, this will be an inaugural standalone race for 2021 with more events planned for 2022. Zoe Copas, who has been the main contact and admin for the Group C series for many years, first with Bob Berridge at the helm, and then with Patrick Peter, said a number of people have been asking, “if we could do some races for those with smaller budgets, newcomers, less frequent racers etc. So in conjunction with Hockenheim circuit and the Gebhardt Marketing Services we will be the feature race at the Bosch Hockenheim Historic. The last time these cars raced at Hockenheim was way back in July 1985 when they ran in the 1000kms WEC race.” For entries contact zoe@groupcracing or see more details at www.groupcracing.com.
As tradition dictates, the Formula Junior Lurani Trophy championship will also start their season at the Hockenheim Historic, and the HSCC will bring a round of its F2 Championship. Amongst local races on the programme is the German-based Tourenwagen Classic series, celebrating DTM cars of the ‘80s and ‘90s.
