HSCC on show at Race RetroThe Historic Sports Car Club will have a major display at Race Retro, the international historic motorsport show, at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry (22-24 February). Race Retro is the annual kick-off point for the new historic motorsport season and the HSCC will again have a major presence in the event’s main hall, with seven cars showing the breadth and depth of the club’s racing. Past, present and future members are invited to come and meet club representatives to find out more about the HSCC and its 2013 programme. However, the star car is not one usually found racing at HSCC events. The 1954 HRG Alpine Rally car was formerly rallied by Betty Haig, one of the Club's founders. The car has been loaned by its new owner and club member Rudolf Ernst, who offered the car for display prior to its return to Germany. From the club’s ever-growing portfolio of championships and race series will be another six cars, covering single-seaters, touring cars and sports cars. Flying the flag for the Historic Formula Ford 2000 Championship will be a car from the championship’s class for Formula Super Vee cars, the Royale RP9 of Perry Tubb. Formula Junior will be represented by the unusual but highly successful front-wheel drive bond of Andrew Tart and Classic Formula 3 has a Chevron B38 from Richard Dutton's stable. Representing the Derek Bell Trophy is the mighty Formula 5000 Lola T140 of Richard Summers, which returned to racing last summer in immaculate trim after a full restoration by Hardy Hall Restorations. From Historic Touring Cars is Neil Brown's 2012 championship class-winning Lotus Cortina and representing the Guards Trophy is the Elva Mk7S of Nick Thompson. Race Retro is open from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday and from 9.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday.Tags:,
