750MC revives Hot Hatch class after break
The 750 Motor Club is reviving its Hot Hatch series.
The category has had a hiatus from the club since 2009 but will return sharing grids with the Stock Hatch category.
It will have 14 rounds but will not run as a championship. There will be three divisions based on a car’s power-to-weight ratio.
“There’s an opening for making the most of modified hatchbacks,” said the club’s James Winstanley. “We’ve introduced classes based on power-to-weight ratio to try and replicate the excitement of last time a generation later.
“There’s been a great response and we are expecting a good mix of cars. We’ve been able to trade on the success of the series in its last incarnation and if it’s as popular as we expect it will probably become a championship again.”
Likely entries include Minis, ex-clio Cup cars and Fiesta STS.
