The Legends Cars Championship is poised for an exciting 2023 season following confirmation that there will be two standalone championships for next season – covering a planned eight events.
Headed by the highlight three-weekend support slot alongside the British Touring Car Championship, the 5/8 scale series will also be racing as part of a separate five event championship which itself features some outstanding race meetings.
The six round championship will appear alongside the BTCC at Brands Hatch Indy on May 6/7 and Croft on July 29/30 before culminating north of the border at Knockhill on August 12/13.
In the second Legends Championship campaign, Cadwell Park will provide the backdrop for the curtain-raiser before trips to Brands Hatch Indy and a yet to be confirmed destination in September. The championship will then conclude at Snetterton and Brands Hatch Indy.
Phil Cooper, Legends Cars Championship Owner, said: “We’re delighted to be able to reveal our calendar for 2023, the September race meeting should be confirmed in due course, and obviously very excited to officially announce the plan to run as two distinct championships for the new season.
“With the three race meetings alongside the BTCC next year, it made absolute sense to us for those to be a standalone six-round Legends Championship.
“Now, we can also confirm what will be either a nine or 10 round Legends Cars Championship across five other events which will comprise some of the big race meetings our competitors have come to expect, the American Speedfest and the season finale with the Trucks.
“It’s great to be returning to race at Cadwell with BARC for the first two rounds and we’re excited to be racing with MSVR at Snetterton as well. All in all we feel we have a fantastic offering next year for drivers, teams and, of course, the race fans!”
