Notes on rules:

  1. Touring Cars – There has always been debate on what constitutes a Touring Car. Essentially it is a road going saloon car with 4-doors, 4-seats which has been modified for racing. In REAL world racing these modifications take many forms and can result in cars which bear more resemblance to a GT car. The max tyre width rule is meant to equalise performance between pseudo-GT cars as they allow a greater tyre “footprint” and the more standard Touring car types. DTM type touring cars fall between those 2 extremes and the 10mm rule should level the playing field where these are concerned.
  2. Goodwood Revival Series – This is intended to be for those cars that raced prior to the end of 1965. Accordingly this allows cars with very narrow tyres to be raced against those with a wider footprint from 1966, hence the maximum tread width of 9mm.
  3. Eligibility – Please note that HPSCC rules committee reserve the right to veto any car/entrant which it feels is not in the ‘spirit’ of the class for which that car/entrant is submitted (eg. Attempting to run a modern Ford GT in Goodwood Revival or Historics as a ‘continuation’ of the 1960’s Ford G.T)
  4. Revisions – HPSCC rules committee reserve the right to update and revise the rules as requi.ed
