The Legends Cars Championship is poised to embark on a ground-breaking new era next year after confirming it has secured a spot on the British Touring Car Championship support bill for 2023.
Britain’s renowned 5/8 scale pocket rockets will stage six rounds across three of the BTCC’s high-profile events, taking centre stage in front of the biggest motor racing audience in the UK.
Appearing at Brands Hatch on May 6/7, the fast-paced one-make series will then run at back-to-back race meetings during mid-season – firstly at Croft on July 29/30 before moving on to Knockhill on August 12/13.
Phil Cooper, Legends Cars Championship Owner, said: “Announcements don’t come any bigger than this in the world of Legends Cars racing, we are absolutely elated with the developments for 2023 which will undoubtedly take our category onto another level. We’ve been working hard for some time on the plans which we’re now able to confirm.
“The opportunity to run alongside the British Touring Car Championship at three events next year, six rounds of Legends racing, is incredible and something I know our drivers and teams are going to make the most of. For a very long time people have said to us we ought to be racing with the BTCC – next year I am delighted to say we will be!”
Alan Gow, BTCC Chief Executive, added: “Legends Cars provides incredibly entertaining racing with their short, sharp, action-packed format. So, I’m sure they will very quickly prove to be a huge hit with our spectators and TV audiences when they appear at our Brands (Indy), Croft and Knockhill events.”
