This year’s event (July 30th to August 1st) will delay the 30th anniversary of the biggest event in the genre, as the 2020 event was lost due to the COVID pandemic.
Billed as the “Greatest Hits” edition featuring single-seater, sports, GT, and touring cars from the history of racing in the first century.
A commemorative race to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the two British motor icons, the Mini Cooper and the Jaguar E-Type, will stand out.
Many of the 15 categories have more than 60 grids, and the Mini Race is set to have 60 grids.
Some races include pit stops and driver changes, while others run in a doubleheader format with races on both Saturday and Sunday.
“When we were forced to postpone our 30th birthday party last summer, we vowed to offer our visitors a bigger and better celebration in 2021. Our great race card is for sure. I’ll do that, “said Nick Wigley, promoter Goose Live Event.
“The lineup includes all the” Greatest Hits “grids promised 12 months ago, as well as mini and E-type wedding anniversary showdown bonuses.
“This must be the best lineup we have ever had!”
From the 1950s to the early 1980s, Grand Prix cars will compete in the Historic Grand Prix Car Association and Masters Historic Formula 1 race, repeating the 2019 record grid of more than 50 historic Formula 2 cars from the 1970s.
Almost a century of sports car racing is featured by prewar sports cars of the 1920s and 1930s and sports prototypes of the Masters Endurance Legend over the last two decades.
Although unconfirmed, Endurance Legends could enter the dusk slot on Saturday night.
