Formula Vintage – a new name for VSCC Racing
Since those early years the Club has firmly established itself as one of the world’s leading organisers of Pre-war and Historic Club racing, with a wealth of experience in hosting first-class events at the UK’s most celebrated venues, including Silverstone, where the Club held a first meeting on 2 July 1949, one of the first at the then fledgling circuit.
Whilst the subsequent years have seen the arrival of a number of other notable series and events, the Vintage Sports-Car Club remains a prominent fixture of the Historic Club racing calendar to this day.
2017 will see Formula Vintage visit five famous British circuits, with each Meeting headlined by one of the Club’s prestigious trophy collections, celebrating such British Racing legends of the Pre- and Post-war eras as Mike Hawthorn and Richard Seaman.
A regular programme of six Pre-war and Historic trophy races will top the bill at each meeting, highlighting the very best of Pre-war racers against like for like machinery, featuring Pre-1931 Vintage Racing Cars, Pre-1961 Racing Cars and road-going Pre-war Sports-Cars, as well as eclectic Pre-war line-ups for our ever-popular All-Comers Scratch and Handicap formats.
Other celebrated events from the Club’s historic collections will also be featured throughout the year, including the Pre-1918 Edwardian Handicap Race, Pre-war Sports-Car Team Relay Race and much more, whilst we will also champion our fellow Pre-war marques with special events, including races for Frazer Nash/GN, Riley, MG and Austin 7, and we again host the Bugatti Owners’ Club’s hallowed Williams Trophy.
To complement the year’s ‘Vintage’ content, we also look forward to welcoming competitors from many of the UK’s other celebrated Historic and Classic race series, including long-time associates the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association (HGPCA), Formula Junior and 500 Owners Association, prominent 1950s/60s Series FISCAR and HRDC, and some newer supporters in the Morgan Challenge Series and Classic Ferrari.
With free Spectator access to the Paddock, where you can get up close with drivers and their historic machinery, and plenty of other off-track entertainment at each event, Formula Vintage provides a truly special day out for the whole family.
