In the Spotlight: GT & Sports Car Cup

Posted on 23 March 2017

  The GT & Sports Car Cup (GTSCC) is for genuine pre-66 GT cars and pre-63 sports-racing cars of a type that was raced in the World Endurance Championship in period. The grids are packed and gorgeous – GTSCC is big on quality and quantity. E-type Jaguars square up to AC Cobras while Lister Jaguars and Maserati T61 ‘Birdcages’ do battle with Lotus 15s. Also expect to see Austin Healey 3000s, MGBs, 956 and 911 Porsches, Chevrolet Corvettes, Shelby Mustangs and TVR Granturas.

On an ‘invitation only’ basis, the GTSCC attracts entries from owners of some of the most glamorous and spectacular cars. It’s the only race series to reunite models such as original Jaguar E-type Lightweight, Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta, Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2 and all three Morgan Plus 4 SLRs ever produced, to name but a few.

The GTSCC racers will be out for qualifying at 16.40 on Friday April 28th, then entertaining us all by starting the Festival Sunday (April 30th) off in style with a two-hour race beginning at 09.10.
