Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The 750 Mo­tor Club will launch a new en­durance se­ries this year for pro­duc­tion sport and sa­loon cars.

A three-race cal­en­dar has been an­nounced for the Club En­duro cat­e­gory, with two-hour races at Don­ing­ton Park and Snet­ter­ton, and a 90-minute con­test on the Sil­ver­stone In­ter­na­tional track.

Teams can be made of up to three driv­ers in one or two cars, and there will be three classes based on a car’s power to weight ra­tio.

“There is still a gap in the mar­ket for en­durance rac­ing on a bud­get,” said the club’s com­pe­ti­tions man­ager Giles Groom­bridge. “With Club En­duro, each round costs £595 .

“If it’s well sup­ported we will try to roll it out in 2017 as a proper club­man en­durance cham­pi­onship. We would plan to have a fea­ture race, some­thing like a 12-hour race.”

The club tri­alled an en­durance race at Snet­ter­ton last year, which at­tracted 22-car grid, and has had a good level of in­ter­est al­ready.
