The hitherto Dutch Championship series for Pre-‘66 touring and GT cars, NKHTGT, has this year taken the step to register as an FIA International Series to better reflect the international nature of the series, both in terms of circuits visited (this year in Holland, France, Germany and Belgium) and also in the international make up of the participants. The series has always been for Appendix K cars, but for 2020 drivers will need HTPs and international race licences. Now entering its 24th year – yes it’s been around for a long time – the ethos of this series is no frills, and the aim is to provide economical racing for the greatest number of participants. Thanks to sponsors Nolte Küchen, Gamma and HP Tyres, they are able to offer a season package of six races for only €3150, and individual races cost €795. Grids are generally full. See firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or contact Egbert at Kolvoortrace@nkhtgt.nl for entries.
To encourage the younger drivers NKHTGT is offering new drivers under the age of 35 a 35% discount on the entry fee for the 2020 series. And that is not all, they even have a car waiting for budding historic race talent! NKHTGT regulars Martin Bijleveld and Bart Deenik have each made available an FIA-prepared Ford Anglia Super, ready for the CT07 class. But beware: This is not an arrive and drive deal. If you want to become a historic racer, you have to be prepared to wield the spanners, and a mechanic is not part of the offer. Crash-prone drivers are not eligible and drivers will undergo an assessment before the car is handed over. If you want to qualify for a Junior Package Deal with a 35% discount and/or the NKHTGT Anglia Talent Cup, please contact NKHTGT chairman Bert Mets (email@example.com) or secretary Egbert Kolvoort. Hurry, the first race weekend is on April 17-19, the Preis der Stadt Stuttgart at the Hockenheimring.
NKHTGT grids are full and diverse
