The ‘Great British race-off’ will feature retro racing from series including the Swinging ‘60s, Future Classics, Modern Classics and Special Saloons and Modsports. They will all compete on the Indy circuit throughout the day, with grids of classic cars from as far back as the 1950s.
David Smitheram, CSCC Director said: “The Classic Sports Car Club is proud to be involved in the very first ‘Brands Britannia’ celebration. It’s a great fit for our racing club, with all of our race series containing British makes and models, particularly our Swinging Sixties and Classic K. The 60’s in particular produced a myriad of race-winning cars, with the Mini, Lotus Elan, TVR Tuscan, Jaguar E-Type and more all featuring in these CSCC series.
“In addition, the day will feature two Morgan Challenge races, chock full of these Malvern-made icons. The plucky Brits will be trying even harder to succeed, with a special trophy awarded in each race.”
There will be fun for the whole family off the circuit too, including a mega car display featuring vehicles from all the best-loved UK manufacturers. Everything from Lotus to Land Rovers and TVRs to Triumphs will be on show.
David Willey, Group Motorsport Event Manager for MSV, said: “Brands Britannia is shaping up to be a spectacular celebration of the British motoring industry, and to host the inaugural event in the Coronation year is very special indeed.
“We are delighted to have the Classic Sports Car Club provide the racing action with packed grids of classic British race cars. The off-track vehicle displays, from private owners and owners’ clubs, will be a spectacle in itself. Seeing these cars on display will be a wonderful reminder of the rich heritage, and vast number of manufacturers, Britain has enjoyed.”
