Grid in the Spotlight: Historic Touring Car Challenge (HTCC) with Tony Dron Trophy

Posted on 28 March 2019

 

Beefy pre-1991 British and European Touring Cars battling it out on track at Donington Park – what could be better? Touring Car greats such as Steve Soper and Patrick Watts regularly compete, and the Motor Racing Legends series pays tribute to another great name from the classic tin-top era with the Tony Dron Trophy, in honour of the ‘70s Touring Car ace and Le Mans sports car driver. In true Dron style, nobody hangs about, with wheel-to-wheel action right across the classes.

What to expect out on the track?

Plenty of Ford Capris, BMW M3s and Rover SDIs, not to mention Chevrolet Camaros and Triumph Dolomite Sprints. These are real race cars that competed in period and they are raced very hard indeed.

When to see them at DHF 2019?

Qualifying is at 11.40 on Friday 3rd May, and the action-packed 60-minute race starts at 10.45 on Sunday 5th May.
