The Historic Sports Car Club has announced an extended calendar in 2019 for the Historic Formula 2 FIA International Series. As the schedule increases from five to six double-header race weekends, a superb range of prime European race tracks will join the previously announced date at the Silverstone Classic (26th-28th July).
Hockenheim, Brands Hatch GP, Magny Cours, Zandvoort and Dijon are all on the schedule as Historic F2 features at some of the most prestigious historic racing festivals across Europe.
In 2018, a total of 50 drivers took part in the season and that number is set to grow further in 2019 as the series is enjoying unprecedented levels of competitor support and forward interest.
The championship is open to cars built to period regulations for Formula 2, Formula Atlantic and Formula B, starting from 1967 and running right through to the end of the 1978 season. Later cars, designed to employ ground effect technology, are not permitted.
The full schedule is:
Apr 26th-28th, Hockenheim (D): Jim Clark Revival
May 25th/26th, Brands Hatch GP: Masters Historic Festival
June 28th-30th, Magny Cours (F): Historique Grand Prix de France
July 26th-28th, Silverstone GP: Silverstone Classic
September 6th-8th, Zandvoort (NL): Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix
October 4th-6th, Dijon (F): Dijon Motors Cup
Grahame White, CEO of the HSCC, said: “Historic Formula 2 had a tremendous season in 2018 and the signs are very positive that next year will be even better. We asked the competitors about adding a sixth race weekend and the support for an expanded calendar was unanimous.”
