First CSCC TV shows set to air

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The first of three high­lights pro­grammes of the Clas­sic Sports Car Club’s re­cent Thrux­ton meet­ing will be shown next week.

The hour-long shows on Mo­torstv mark the first time the club’s races have been tele­vised and, if pop­u­lar, more events could be shown in the fu­ture.

The first is sched­uled for Septem­ber 7.

The pro­grammes doc­u­ment the first time all of the club’s cat­e­gories vis­ited the Hamp­shire cir­cuit and CSCC direc­tor David Smitheram said feed­back from driv­ers of the event was “ex­cep­tional”.

“Al­most uni­ver­sally they [driv­ers] loved it and have asked ‘please can we go back?’” he said. “In­evitably not every­one’s go­ing to like a cir­cuit: some have loved it and hated it at the same time be­cause of its speed and grassy run-offs. It was a priv­i­lege to be there – it was the right place.”

The club’s 2017 cal­en­dar won’t be re­leased un­til later in the year and it’s not yet known if Thrux­ton will be part of it again.
