Equipe 70s will bring together GT, GTS and Touring cars of the period in two pilot races this year. Equipe 70s will feature many iconic cars of the era and will run in 5 groups, each group will run to separate engine capacity classes The first race will be on the full GP Circuit at Silverstone on June 11th & 12th then at Snetterton on August 6th.
Equipe 70s will cater for Group 1 and 2 touring cars and group 3 and 4 Sports and GT cars all running to period specification. This will replicate the era where strong grids with a mix of cars raced wheel to wheel. Group R will be for Road going cars of the period. Turbo and rotary engine cars will not be accepted.
Groups 1 and 3 will run on Dunlop post historic tyres, groups 2 and 4 will run on slicks as in period. Group R will run on any 60 or 70 series road tyre to a pre 1990 tread pattern and compound as per the MUK regulations
Equipe 70s cars are also invited to join the Equipe 3 Hour Relay, this team handicap race gives all of the 70s groups a competitive run at this popular long distance event.
FiA papers are welcome but not mandatory. The core clubman racing values of Equipe Classic Racing will continue in this series with a high level of driving standards and car preparation demanded.
We think this is an exciting and complimentary addition to our Pre 1966 racing. The mix of sports cars and touring cars will give some tremendous racing replicating some of the fantastic grids of the era. Our ambition is to run a full 8 race program for 2023
