The Historic Touring Car Challenge (HTCC) and Tony Dron Trophy cover Touring Cars which raced in the British and European Car Championships between 1966 and 1990. The HTCC is for Group 5 cars up to 1969, Group 2 cars up to 1981 and Group A cars post ’81. New for 2016, the entry eligibility has been extended to include Group A cars right up to December 1990, to cover all normally-aspirated cars and post-’85 turbo-charged cars up to 1600cc.
The Tony Dron Trophy, newly created for the 2016 season is a stand-alone series for Group 1 Touring Cars. This new race series will run within share the Historic Touring Car Challenge grid, with its own podium and results for each race. Named in honour of the ‘70s Touring Car ace and Le Mans sports car driver Tony Dron – the new series is for Touring Cars running to FIA Group 1 regulations or to British Saloon Car Championship Group 1½ regulations between 1970 and 1982. Races are typically 40 minutes long for two drivers with a compulsory pit stop.
As with all Motor Racing Legends’ series the races are for real race cars from the era, running to correct period specification.
