Third Night Race, V8s For 2005, No Belcar For Willhire

The European Endurance and Racing Club (EERC) has added a third night race to its 2004 calendar, complementing the races already planned at Donington (November 6), and Brands Hatch (November 20).

Croft is the venue, on Saturday, October 23: the two hour event will start at around 6.30 pm, having been immediately preceded by a 45-minute qualifying session, which will start in daylight but end in darkness, thus fulfilling requirements for practice in night conditions.

“The BARC came to me with the idea,” said series boss James Tucker. “This will be the first ever night race at Croft, and should be a blinder!”

Britcar 2005 will see a new class introduced - for large-capacity V8 saloons, such as the Vauxhall Monaro, Ford Falcon, MG ZT, and the new retro-style Ford Mustang. The cars should typically cost around £30-35,000 in road-going trim.

The Willhire 24 Hours in September 2005 will not see the Belcar runners coming across the Channel, owing to the proximity of their own 24-hour race, at Zolder. However, Belcar will be having a race in the UK - at the early-summer meeting on the Brands Hatch GP circuit (June 1/2/3), where they will complement a full weekend of EERC racing.
