26 Years of Citroen 2CV Racing

2015 will be the 26th year of Citroen 2CV racing in the UK, making it one of the UK's longest-running one-make championships.

The 2CVParts.com Championship season features four double-header meetings: at Oulton Park, Brands Hatch Indy, Cadwell Park and Croft. Each meeting will have two, 20-minute races. At the Croft meeting, there will be a third race, a two-hour Enduro, to help teams and drivers prepare for the special challenges of long distance racing.

Over the weekend of 21-23 August, the 25th running of the 2CV 24-Hour race will be staged at the amazing Anglesey circuit. This will be the tenth and final round of the 2015 Championship. It is the longest-running 24-hour motor race in the UK by a big margin and the only one in the UK in 2015.

With testing on Friday, qualifying on Friday evening, then racing twice around the clock through Saturday night, it's a very busy weekend for all the teams, crews, drivers, marshals, officials and spectators.

If you are a racer, you can organise and run your own 2CV in any or all of the races. It is also possible to pay for a seat in a car being run by a team. Take a look at www.2cvracing.org.uk.

With very carefully drafted and enforced rules, all the cars and all the parts are pretty much the same. There is a very co-operative atmosphere in the paddock, so urgent spares and technical advice are always on hand.

With so much going on, the 24 Hour is a great weekend for petrol heads and families. Anglesey Circuit welcomes car clubs holding rallies and get-togethers over the three days. There is plenty of space for camping around the loop of the race track, which is not used by the race. There is open access to the pit garages throughout the weekend.

There is an invitation class for UK-spec 2CV racers - how else can you race at Spa? See: www.24hcv.be.

No other UK club racing championship offers the opportunity to enjoy eight sprint races, an Enduro and two 24-Hour races.
