One-make se­ries for clas­sic Alfa Romeos

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

On the back of the suc­cess of a pi­lot race at Don­ing­ton Park in Oc­to­ber, the His­toric Rac­ing Driv­ers’ Club will ex­pand its Clas­sic Alfa Chal­lenge in 2019.

An en­try of 33 clas­sic and his­toric Al­fas for the Don­ing­ton race proved HRDC founder Julius Thur­good has iden­ti­fied a de­mand for the se­ries and a three-round sched­ule has been planned for 2019, start­ing at Sil­ver­stone on April 14.

“I’m con­vinced there is an ap­petite for a gen­tle­man racer se­ries for clas­sic and his­toric Alfa Romeos,” said Thur­good, who is look­ing to add dates at Thrux­ton and Cas­tle Combe.

While many cars in the pi­lot race were from the 1960s, the posthis­toric class al­lowed cars from the 1980s to join the grid. Chris Snow­don won the Don­ing­ton race in his 1975 GTV 2000.
