Bernie's V8s / SR & GT

Descriptions, regulations and registration

Bernie's V8s / SR & GT

"This has to be the best grid of cars ever..." said Motorsport Magazine in 2017, and we certainly agree.

The formula brings together the iconic grids of SR & GT Challenge and Bernie's V8s, with other sports and GT cars of a similar ilk. That means everything from a genuine ex-IMSA 240Z, to TVRs, replica GT40s, Cobras and Porsche 917s, not to mention feisty MGs and Ascars. Relaxed regulations ensures a home for most similar cars.
