HRDC 2012 Calendar Announced

The Historic Racing Drivers Club has expanded its race calendar to six race events for 2012, featuring five race series, all of which are registered with the MSA.

The confirmed calendar offers a great balance between 'mighty' circuits, offering large grids with great driver commitment such as Castle Combe, Snetterton 300, Spa and Donington; and historical 'gems', in the form of the smaller, but no less demanding, Lydden Hill and Mallory Park tracks.

After a sensational inaugural season in 2011, current feedback from driver registrations suggests that HRDC grids will be enthusiastically supported in 2012.

HRDC Founder and Race Director, Julius Thurgood, comments: "The HRDC showed this season that there is a high demand for 'no frills', well-run historic races at  club level. The entertainment value from well-supported grids, sporting a great variety of superbly presented cars, certainly went down a storm with both drivers and spectators at all the venues we visited. I am certain that the HRDC can deliver an even better spectacle and great variety for drivers and historic race fans in 2012."
