750 MOTOR CLUB HEAD TO SILVERSTONE INTERNATIONAL
Mon 04 Mar 2013
The 750 Motor Club will become only the second club to organise races on the Silverstone International circuit later this year, after switching its event from the National track to accommodate MotoGP. At no additional cost to the Club or competitors, the 750MC Summer Festival will move to the 1.85-mile layout at the southern end of the British Grand Prix circuit, and the Club will have the use of the Silverstone Wing for the two day meeting on 24-25 August.
“The Silverstone weekend is always one of our most popular events of the year,” said Competition Manager Giles Groombridge. “I will be working with the circuit to ensure that the logistics of the event work, but it really is a great honour for 750MC to be able to use this magnificent new facility.”
“This will be a fresh challenge for all of our drivers as the circuit has only been used for one BRSCC meeting up until now,” Groombridge added. “We are already running events on the Donington Park Grand Prix layout, Snetterton 300 and Rockingham this season, so this will become the fourth brand new configuration for some of our championships, which should add spice to the racing.”
The International layout uses the Grand Prix start line, and competitors will face the fast right-hander at Abbey as the first corner of the lap. The circuit wends it way through the Village complex before the flat-out blast down the Hangar Straight to Stowe corner. The run through the Vale and Club corner completes the lap.
The two-day race meeting on August Bank Holiday weekend features the majority of the Club’s formulae, with the mini-endurance Roadsports series set to star on the Saturday, with the televised Compact Cup and MR2 Championships among the Sunday features.
