The Historic Sports Car Club has devised an outstanding 12-race (six race weekends) calendar for its 2021 Historic Formula 2 International Series, with highlights to be prime slots at three of Europe’s biggest historic racing festivals: The Historic Grand Prix de France at Paul Ricard, the Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix and, after the 2019 event was marked by a record field of more than 50 Formula 2 cars, the Silverstone Classic (see our calendar section this issue). Historic F2 was declared ‘race series of the year’ in the 2020 Royal Automobile Club Historic Awards. According to Championship Chairman Roger Bevan, “The signs are clear that the tremendous momentum gathered in 2019 will readily carry forward into 2021.”
The Championship is open to cars built to period regulations for Formula 2, Formula Atlantic and Formula B, starting from 1967 and running right through to the end of the 1978 season. Later cars, designed to employ ground effect technology, are not permitted. See hscc.org.uk for full regulations.
