Competitor info for the Pinewood Classic Team Race - 5th September



Thanks to the efforts of a lot of people the Festival will take place at BSCRA’s National Centre, Corby on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June.

I would like to publicly thank Mark Witham, Gavin Wills, Michael Thomson and all at the Rockingham club for their understanding in respect of this. They have chosen to cancel their planned racing even though at no point did we ask them to do this. However we are grateful for their co-operation.

New - Rules updated for the the 2020 Vintage and Classic National Meeting

Vintage and Classic National Meeting at 10 October /Sunday 11 October 2020 Pinewood Raceway. Note Date Change.

Over the last few weeks a working group has been formed to look at this. The members are Paul Bucknell, Nigel Barrow, Richy Kettleson, Dave Austin, Paul Harwood and me as Chair. The first thing we looked at was the date. We decided that to move it to the October date as, for various reasons, this was the best option. An exact race format is being looked as will the cars raced and various other aspects of the meeting. So far the conversations have been forthright but constructive. We all aim to make this a real celebration of classic car racing and the racers of the last century while still reflecting the ethos of the present V&C series. Further details will be available when we've finalised them  

It'd also be good if we can sort accommodation and a celebratory meal Saturday night but as with everything we're a long way off with this yet and it all very much is dependant on how Covid-19 plays out. We will keep you updated as this progresses as it happens

Due to the present situation with regards to Covid 19, the V&C series for this year will be cancelled and instead it is proposed that a Classic Nationals be held at Pinewood Raceway in the weekend of the 6th September. This has to be a provisional date given the present circumstances. It is hoped this will be a well supported event by both people competing and others who were part of the scene at the time. Plans are still being made and further information will follow...

In line with the current position with regards to COVID-19 the V&C series will have to be postponed for the forseeable future. Hopefully this situation will be sorted sooner as opposed to later and we can all get back on track soon...
