Historic racing organisers to collaborate on 2020 event scheduling

In association with

Three leading organisers of historic racing in Europe have pledged to work together in re-scheduling postponed events over the later part of the 2020 season.

Masters Historic Racing, the Historic Sports Car Club and French-based HVM Racing have announced that they will collaborate to help ensure the best deal for historic racers once the season starts.

The trio are currently discussing options such as cooperation on rescheduled dates, shared race meetings and guest races at each other’s events.

The aim will be to create viable race meetings that offer as many racers as possible the chance to race at leading venues this year.

When approval for racing to resume is given, the later months of 2020 may become crowded as promoters try to reschedule events postponed from earlier in the year into an already crowded calendar.

The HSCC, Masters and HVM aim to collaborate on events, with shared race meetings a real possibility.

Andy Dee-Crowne of the HSCC said: “This is good for the sport and makes good business sense and I’d like to thank Ron Maydon at Masters and Laurent Vallery-Masson at HVM for joining us in this process.

“No one can yet be sure when racing will be allowed to restart and we can’t yet predict what grid sizes will be like.

“While there will clearly be pent-up demand to go racing, we also recognise that some competitors will be focussed on business recovery after the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic.

“We want to make sure that we can all accommodate those who want to go racing again.”

It is possible that racing in France could re-start earlier than in the UK and HVM’s dates at major French tracks, subject to travel restrictions, may be attractive to some UK-organised race categories.

In the UK, as an example, both the HSCC and Masters have had to postpone two-day race meetings at Donington Park scheduled for June.

Given the likely calendar pressures of re-organising later season dates, a consolidated joint event over a longer weekend may be a viable alternative.
