The 205 Cup will be open to pre-1990 cars running to period homologation, both in Group A and Group N specification. The 205 Cup will allow owners the chance to compete in these iconic cars on quality asphalt events.
Championship manager Colin Heppenstall said: “We have had contact with a number of car owners and we believe there is demand for an asphalt-based 205 Cup for cars in proper period trim. We hope the 205 Cup will start steadily and gradually grow over the coming seasons.”

March 4/5: Bovington Stages (Dorset)

June 4: Mini Epynt Stages
July 30: Harry Flatters Rally (Epynt)
