Endurance series planned by 750MC
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.
