GRID IN THE SPOTLIGHT: HISTORIC TOURING CAR CHALLENGE AND TONY DRON TROPHY

Posted on 30 March 2021

With its iconic car designs and dramatic liveries, Motor Racing Legends’ combined Historic Touring Car Challenge and Tony Dron Trophy race evokes nostalgia with the young and not-so-young alike. These are the machines most of us wished our parents (or we!) drove back in the day, and that thunderous first entry into Redgate after the green light is always unforgettable!  

The packed grid features a mass of crowd-pleasing ‘favourites’, from Mk1 Ford Escorts and  Capris, BMW CSL ‘Batmobiles’, Group A Rover SD1s, MG Metro Turbos, Alfa Romeo GTVs, TWR XJSs to BMW E30 M3s, Nissan Skylines and flame-spitting Sierra RS500 Cosworths.   Not to be left out, the Tony Dron Trophy sees Ford Capris and Mk 2 Escorts wheel-to-wheel with Triumph Dolomite Sprints, Chevvy Camaros, Alfa Romeos and Golf GTIs.
