The Races

 

With qualifying all day Friday, and two full days of racing on Saturday and Sunday, DHF 2018 presented three action-packed days of historic motorsport excitement!

The 2018 DHF grids were:

‘MAD JACK’ PRE-WAR SPORTS CARS

These are the oldest cars competing at the event, with all sports cars built before 1941 being eligible. They may be the ‘elder statesmen’ at the Festival, but they don’t hang about! 

 

HISTORIC TOURING CAR CHALLENGE WITH TONY DRON TROPHY

This grid of pre-1991 British and European Touring Cars features the type of beefy machines that most of us could only dream of driving back in period.

 

STIRLING MOSS TROPHY

These purpose-built, pre-61 sports-racers look and sound fantastic – and the drivers are competing for the actual cup that Sir Stirling Moss won in the 1955 British GP.

 

ROYAL AUTOMOBILE CLUB WOODCOTE TROPHY

This series is firmly established within classic racing circles as the go-to series for competitive 50s racing. And it features some of the most beautiful road-racing cars ever built. 

 

GT & SPORTS CAR CUP

This grid 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. 

 

FJHRA/HSCC ‘SILVERLINE’ CHAMPIONSHIP FOR FRONT-ENGINED FORMULA JUNIORS

These lovely little machines, developed for a racing formula that was introduced 60 years ago to train and bring on future Grand Prix drivers, always deliver outstanding and highly competitive racing. 

 

FJHRA/HSCC ‘SILVERLINE’ CHAMPIONSHIP FOR REAR-ENGINED FORMULA JUNIORS

Close and exhilarating racing from nimble little machines that, back in the day, were the stepping-stone to Formula 1 for some of the greatest names in the sport.

 

HRDC ‘TOURING GREATS’ for pre-’60 Touring Cars with invited ‘TC63’

This grid for pre-60 Touring Cars features a wildly diverse mix of tin-tops, ranging from Austin A35s and A40s to Alfa Romeo Giulietta Ti Berlinas and Volvo Amazons.

 

HRDC ‘COYS TROPHY’ celebrating the BTCC 1958-1966

Expect David and Goliath action amongst the pre-66 Touring Cars, with Mini Coopers lining up alongside Jaguar Mk1 and 2 saloons, Lotus Cortinas and mighty V8-engined Ford Falcons and Mustangs.

 

SUPER TOURING CAR CHALLENGE

Bringing back more recent memories, the mighty 2-litre Super Touring Cars of the 1990s and pre-1990 Group A cars battle it out with pre-2006 FIA S2000 and invited BTC cars. Expect to see Vauxhall Vectras,  BMW 318s and 320s and Alfa 155s and 156s taking on Honda Accords, Peugeot 406s and Audi A4s.

 

JAGUAR CLASSIC CHALLENGE

Iconic pre-1966 ‘big cats’ compete against each other, showcasing the very best of Jaguar’s rich racing heritage. C-type, D-type, E-type, low drag E-type, MkI, MkII, XK120, XK140, XK150 are all eligible.

 

HSCC DEREK BELL TROPHY

A series of races for Formula 5000 and Formula 2 single-seaters built and raced between 1967 and 1979. This is the series for the more powerful cars with wings and slick racing tyres.

U2TC 

The most popular car on this lively grid for pre-66 under two-litre Touring Cars may be the Ford Lotus Cortina, but there’s always stiff opposition for such models as  BMW 1800 TISA and Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA. 

PRE-63 GT 

This sumptuous race series features such iconic machines as Short Wheelbase Ferraris, DB4GT Astons, AC Aces, MGA Twincams, SZ Alfas, Lotus Elites and E-type Jaguars – all to genuine pre-1963 specification.
