NEW 750MC SERIES
A new endurance series, a popular category revived, a new one-make division and an amalgamation of several classes. The 750 Motor Club has certainly been busy over the winter and has launched a number of new series that, if successful, could become championships.
Besides the M3 Cup mentioned on page 16, the club is also launching Club Enduro this year. There has been a lot of interest in this category, aimed at those wanting to contest longer races on a budget. Two two-hour races are scheduled, along with a 90-minute contest, and multiple drivers and cars are allowed to make up teams.
The club is also reviving its Hot Hatch series. This was popular in previous decades and now is believed to be a good time to try a return. A couple of Ford Fiesta STS ( right) contested races last year but now a full relaunch is planned.
A new Toyota GT86 category is also the pipeline, the brainchild of MR2 coordinator Patrick Mortell, while races for SR> Challenge, Bernie’s V8s and Crossle Racing Drivers’ Club competitors will be amalgamated into the new Classic Interseries. SL
