HRDC launches Flying A Trophy for historic Austin pocket rockets

MALLORY PARK 26 SEPTEMBER

The Historic Racing Drivers Club launches an innovative concept in single-make racing, by announcing an all-Austin A30/35 race at Mallory Park on Saturday 26 September.

The grid will consist of two distinct classes: The 'Gentlemen' for the recently-launched HRDC 'Academy' class cars and the 'Players' for the more modified 'Speedwell' class cars. All cars will run on Dunlop historic CR65 race tyres, a contributory factor in keeping a level playing field among the competition running in these two distinct classes.

This one-off race will take place at Mallory Park on 26 September at the HRDC/BRSCC 'RETRORACEFEST' meeting. Undoubtedly, this unique event will be a headline act and for competitors who are lucky enough to own one of these spectacular Austin A30/35 'Pocket-rockets', it will surely will be a case of 'Be there - or be square!'

A natural progression from this innovative race will be the HRDC 'Academy' Series, which will run from 2016 as a stand-alone series for these strictly-controlled-formula, one-make, entry-level historic race cars.
