Historic 750 Formula Series

The 750 Motor Club’s ‘Historic’ racing series, for cars built to early eras of 750 Formula regulations. Primarily comprising Austin Seven Specials and later Reliant-engined Formula cars, new cars have to be built within careful guidelines to ensure compatibility and enquiries from other historic cars of a similar style are welcomed.

The range includes Austin Seven, Reliant engines (642cc and 748cc OHV, 747cc side-valve), Ford 1172 side-valve and Climax; F3 500cc class must comply with 500 OA rules.

This varies a lot dependant upon the class in which the car runs. It can be anything from leaf springs through to ‘coil-overs’.

In the Austin 7 classes, brakes are restricted to the Austin 7 drums. In the other classes, the use of disc brakes is not permitted unless part of the original design.

Classes A & B must use the standard A7 casing; alternative ratios may be fitted, either 3-speed or 4-speed, plus reverse.

Class A restricts width and profile; other classes now use an affordable historic control tyre to equalise performance, available both new and secondhand.

There are approximately 12 rounds per season, typically spread across six ‘double-header’ race weekends and featuring one or two handicap races.

Club membership is just £25 for 12 months, season registration is £90, and double-header weekend entry fees (qualifying and 2 x 15min races) are typically between £250 and £350 depending on the circuit. Eligible cars are available secondhand from just £5000.
