The 70s Roadsports Championship has well-supported grids and classes from 1300cc to 3 litre. Cars must be ex-factory spec and weight, and the competitors are renowned for fair and very competitive driving with few mishaps. The social side of the race weekends for these drivers and their supporters are without equal.
The Championship goes all over the UK (9 rounds), plus Spa Francorchamps most years. Drivers can elect to gain points by road driving to the events.
