CSCC to race into the dark in 2017
The Classic Sports Car Club has unveiled its 2017 season calendar, which includes a night race meeting at Brands Hatch.
The club will end its schedule at the Kent circuit for the second time in three seasons next year, having also run a day-night meeting in 2015 before thick fog forced the cancellation of much of the second day. The CSCC is yet to firm up which series will contest the night races on November 11/12.
It will kick its season off with a visit to Snetterton – taking place on the April 1/2 weekend – before returning for a second year to Thruxton, the club having visited the Hampshire circuit for the first time in its history in 2016.
The CSCC will also use the International Circuit configuration at Silverstone for the first time, and makes its return to Croft after a 10-year absence.
Club director Hugo Holder said: “The night races at Brands are a chance for people to have a go at unfinished business. We ran a night race event over two days in 2015 but the second day was fogged off; it came rolling in and we couldn’t use the circuit.
“I think it’s arguably one of our best calendars yet.”
