Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The Clas­sic Sports Car Club will start 2016 with a record sea­son-opener en­try at Snet­ter­ton this week­end.

Last year, the Snet­ter­ton meet­ing had 327 en­tries but this year’s tally passed that mark a week ago. Al­low­ing for some sec­ond driv­ers, more than 400 driv­ers will be rac­ing.

“In­cluded in that to­tal are 83 cars from the 1960s,” said the club’s David Smitheram. “De­spite these cars get­ting older ev­ery year their pop­u­lar­ity with the CSCC in­creases.”

The largest sin­gle grid is for the Fu­ture Clas­sics Se­ries, where this year’s split of decades has suc­ceeded in at­tract­ing more 1970s cars.
