The Vintage Sports-Car Club are delighted to return to Silverstone for Round 1 of Formula Vintage on 22/23 April 2017. This well-established Spring-time season opener will be a spectacular two-day feature with the Club’s celebrated Pre-war and Historic content taking centre stage across the weekend’s programme.

In addition to the prestigious GP Itala Trophy Races for Vintage, Pre-1961 and Pre-war Sports-Cars and ever-popular Pre-war Scratch and Handicap formats, we also look forward to some of the Club’s other traditional events; these include a Race for 1950s Sports Racing Cars, the High Speed Trial for those new to Circuit Racing, as well as the celebrated Mike Stripe Team Relay Race for Pre-war Sports-Cars.

To complement the weekend’s VSCC content, we also look forward to welcoming Competitors of other popular Historic race series, including the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association (HGPCA), Fifties Sports Cars (FISCAR), Historic Racing Drivers Club (HRDC), the 500 Owners Association and the Morgan Challenge Race Series.

 

 

 

Location: Southlegh Colyton Devon EX24 6JE

Date: 13th  May  2017

The beautiful Devon countryside plays host to round two of the 2018 VSCC Sprint & Hill Climb Championship, our first visit to a hill climb venue this year. Following a brief downhill descent over the bridge into the deceptive uphill left hand Wis Corner, the course continues uphill through open parkland until The Gate; where cars disappear into woodland, through the esses to the finish, via a couple of hairpins. As well as Championship contenders, the event is open to all eligible VSCC Competitors; we are also likely to see a number of Formula 3 500cc Racing Cars and 1950s Sports/Racing Cars join us at the venue. On the Saturday, our friends at the 500 Owners Association have invited the VSCC to compete at their event at the same venue, so, be it a Competitor or a Spectator, why not make a weekend of 'it'?

Date: 19th May 2018

The Vintage Sports-Car Club, under its new guise Formula Vintage, makes its annual visit to Oulton Park for the club's second round of the season. This event is always one of the venue's most eagerly-awaited of the season, featuring cars from motorsport's pioneering age. Edwardian era machinery can be found alongside sports and racing cars from the inter-war years, and racers from the immediate post-war era. Many of these cars are raced without seat-belts of rollover bars, recalling a fearless age where competitors fought for the honour and glory of the sport.

Entries at Formula Vintage events regularly feature cars that have raced at Brooklands and in famous international races including the Mille Miglia and Le Mans. The day will see the club's historic Hawthorn Memorial Trophies featured, with prestigious Trophy Races for Vintage, Pre-1961 and Pre-war Sports-Cars, whilst ever-popular Scratch and Handicap formats will complete another exciting Pre-war programme.

Further information regarding the racing line up can be found at the "Whats Racing" on the website. This event will feature plenty of off-track attractions too, including period car displays, themed food and drink, and shopping to create a real garden party atmosphere.
