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.
This season sees five race weekends for the formula, including the legendary Speedfest meeting and a rare chance to race on the full Brands Hatch GP circuit. Race meetings will either consist of 2 x 20min or 1 x 45min, with driver/car swaps if required for the longer races.
19th March - Donington Park GP
1st May - Brands Hatch GP (1 x 45min)
10th/11th June - Brands Hatch 'Speedfest'
20th August - Silverstone International
24th September - Snetterton 300 (1 x 45min)
