Due to an unforeseen programme wrangle, the HRDC has accepted a last-minute invitation to field an ‘Allstars’ race at the AMOC Oulton Park event on 11 May.
“When I got the call to ask if the HRDC could rally a late call for an ‘Allstars’ race, I naturally felt that we should do all we could to accommodate the AMOC’s request”.
HRDC’s race director, Julius Thurgood, went on to comment: “We are already supporting the AMOC with our ‘Touring Greats’ pre-1960 historic touring cars at Oulton Park and had a fantastic day with them at Silverstone earlier this month – so it seemed only fair that we should take up the challenge of fielding a grid to help plug the gap in the programme, even though the call was very late in the day.” Read More »
The HRDC ‘Touring Greats’ Series has teamed up with Aston Martin Owners Club Racing to stage five spectacular rounds of entertaining racing from its popular grids of 1950s historic touring cars in 2013.
After seeing the series enjoy well-populated grids in 2012, HRDC Race Director Julius Thurgood decided that it was a perfect time for ‘Touring Greats’ to move up a gear. “Having worked with Duncan Wilshire in the past, I know that his ethos of presenting the very best in historic racing is shared with that of the HRDC. To be able to present our ‘Touring Greats’ grids alongside those from the AMOC is a perfect fit for both our organisations and, most importantly, for our competitors. It will be a pleasure to work with Duncan’s team at Aston Martin Owners Club Racing next season”. Read More »
