750MC re­vives Hot Hatch class af­ter break

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
