Mus­cle cars at Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic

Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AU­TOSPORT/NEWS -

PE­RIOD AMER­I­CAN MUS­CLE CARS WILL RE­TURN to the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic next July in the Trans-atlantic Tour­ing Car Tro­phy for pre-1966 sa­loon cars.

Recre­at­ing the suc­cess­ful 2016 race, V8 Ford Mus­tangs and Ford Fal­cons will take on rarer rac­ing saloons such as the Mer­cury Cy­clone Comet, Ply­mouth Bar­racuda, and the sim­ply vast Ford Gal­ax­ies.

The event pro­mot­ers hope to at­tract as many as 40 Amer­i­can V8s to the grid, which will be topped up by smaller-en­gined Euro­pean mod­els, in­clud­ing Ford Lo­tus Corti­nas. In 2016, the 40-minute race was won by the Ford Mus­tang of Craig Davies from New Zealan­der Roger Wills in his 1965 Mer­cury Cy­clone Comet.
