So where would we like to be this weekend? The historic racing enthusiast is almost spoiled for choice with a host of great meetings ranging from Spa-Francorchamps, via Silverstone and Laguna Seca to the mighty Touring Car Masters field who are out at Winton in Australia this weekend – and don’t forget the 90th anniversary Mille Miglia is underway in Italy.
The Spa Classic is Peter Auto’s second meeting of the season and features all their usual grids including the popular Group C runners, plus the debut of their Euro Formula Two series. The lure of the classic Belgian circuit has brought out cars from across Europe and some series feature monster grids – see our preview: http://bit.ly/2pZE8qw
The HSCC have almost 400-cars entered for their two-day meeting at Silverstone, with the always entertaining Formula Junior grids joining the many HSCC regulars. The Guards Trophy for pre ‘66 GT cars and pre ‘69 sports-racing cars features over 40-entries, and the standard of racing seldom disappoints from the HSCC. Event preview: http://bit.ly/2rmdtnZ
In California the Spring Classic at Laguna Seca features Masters USA’s Formula One field amongst a host of other classic categories, including the Historic Stock Cars, featuring some of NASCAR”s finest: http://bit.ly/2rfQBdm
After a pause in their schedule the mighty Touring Car Masters field is back in action at Winton Motor Raceway in Victoria, Australia. Three races for the classic Tourers alongside the high-profile Supercars series should provide some fine action – in wet practice today Greg Hansford would have qualified 23rd on the 29-car Supercars grid!
The Mille Miglia is an event for every town and village it passes through the 450-car entry in the main field loop from Brescia to Roma and back over four days. We previewed the event - http://bit.ly/2qtcg0H - and will be aiming to bring you pictures from the lengthy stages.
