2023 Birkett Six-Hour Relay
Wed 05 Jul 2023
Entry is now open for the 2023 Birkett Six-Hour Relay Race, with 750 Motor Club. Taking place once again on the full Silverstone GP Circuit, the unique event features a grid of 70 teams - which usually reaches capacity each year - and includes some revisions to classes for 2023.
Each team should include between two (ideally three) and six cars and between three and six drivers, running in relay format. Any closed wheel post-war race car is eligible (subject to meeting usual Motorsport UK Blue Book safety standards).
All drivers in the event must have valid 750 Motor Club membership (£30 for 12 months), and whilst only a basic Race Club (formerly known as National B) licence is required, novices are not permitted. The entry fee for the six-hour race is £1695 per team, and places can be reserved by returning the 'Team Details' form along with a deposit.
The event features two races in one - some teams going for the outright 'scratch' victory, but with the majority in it for the coveted outright Birkett Handicap win. You can find the full list of winners dating back to 1951 here.
This legendary motorsport event has seen a plethora of famous names compete over the years, from F1 drivers to rock stars, touring car legends to Hollywood royalty.
