Motor Racing Legends has great pleasure in announcing the launch of a brand-new Historic one-make race series for the Ford GT40, with two races for the ‘Amon Cup’ in 2021. Races will be for cars running to Pre-’66 specification and open to two-drivers,
Open to Pre-‘66 E-types, C and D-types, XKs and Mk 1 and Mk 2 saloons – the highly regarded series, founded by Jaguar Classic in 2015, is looking towards its seventh season with renewed vigour as it joins the Motor Racing Legends stable of historic race series.
The inaugural Motor Racing Legends Three-Hour race for Pre-’66 GT and Touring Cars was such a resounding success that drivers have asked for more. We are delighted to be hosting two, Three-Hour races in 2021, one at either end of the season. The first at Donington Historic and at the end of the season, at Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.
Launched in 2010, the Stirling Moss Trophy is where the world’s most iconic 1950s sports-racing cars come to race. Entry is open to pre-1961 cars, with an expectation of driving standards which are both gentlemanly and highly competitive.
Motor Racing Legend’s longest running series, the Pre-War Sports Car series is open to all sports cars built before 1941. Cars must be close to original production specification running in road-trim with wings and lights.
An exciting new grid for the 2020 season for Group 1 and Group 2 Touring Cars from 1966 to 1969 (Period G1). This new grid will run alongside the existing U2TC series for under 2 litre Pre ’66 cars with the same eligibility rules and very similar performance.
Races are open to all Pre ’63 Sports and GT cars and are usually an hour long with a pit stop for 2 drivers. The Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy for Historic Cars is a prestigious trophy presented by the Royal Automobile Club to the winner of the Pre ’63 GT race at the Silverstone Classic.
