Sports 2000 class to join Clas­sic Club­mans grids

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Sports 2000 cars from up to 1984 will run in an in­vi­ta­tion class in the HSCC Clas­sic Club­mans Cham­pi­onship in 2017 af­ter a suc­cess­ful trial this year.

The two types of sports-rac­ing cars have proved com­pat­i­ble on­track and reg­u­lar Sports 2000 racer Roger Waite says that hav­ing five two-litre Ford Pinto-en­gined Sports 2000 on the Clas­sic Club­mans grid at Sil­ver­stone last month shows that the con­cept is gath­er­ing mo­men­tum.

“The Sil­ver­stone en­try was very en­cour­ag­ing. We want to con­tinue that into 2017,” said Waite. “The cars are sat in garages and there has been a lot of in­ter­est shown.”
