Tin-top series lets in earlier classics

3

More great classics are set to take to the circuits as a historic touring car race series expands both its eligibility and its programme for 2012.

Although in only its second year, the JD Classics Challenge organised by Motor Racing Legends will push back the date for the earliest touring cars to 1966, meaning classics from a 19-year period can compete.

As a result, organisers expect an influx of hot classic tin-tops from Anglias to Mk1 Escorts.

They have also doubled the number of races on the calendar for 2012 with outings at Donington (5-6 May), Brands Hatch (26-27 May), Oulton Park (25-27 August) and on the Algarve (18-21 October).

Interesting. Though I fear my 18-year old tin-top (the Fiestarossa) is not eligible...

nevermind dracula

Great memories from this picture, back in 70s maybe from Sport Auto (the french mag), I need to delve into my archives.

I love classic cars myself. It is just amazing to see one of these
classic roar on the road or on the race track. I personally love the 190sl series of Mercedes cars.
