The Historic Touring Car Championship will feature a new category this year for pre ‘66 cars running with all steel panels.
At the heart of the championship will remain cars that comply with the Historic Racing Saloon Register regulations, which allow for fibreglass panels, and those running to FIA Appendix K.
To encourage a wider range of pre ‘66 cars into the championship the new classes will cater for cars with all steel body panels and any appropriate engine size. The regulations and point scoring system have been amended to give these cars an equal chance of scoring points and winning the championship.
Series Chairman Steve Platts said: “The cars with all steel panels are at a weight disadvantage, but we want to encourage them to join the grid. So we’ve opened up the regulations to invite them and give them an equal chance of doing well in the championship.”

We also will allow some changes to bodywork.
Whilst no aerodynamic aids will be allowed (e.g. front spoilers , rear wings or wheel arches that can be used to improve the aerodynamic effect on the car), we will permit modifications modifications of a minor nature are allowed to wheel arches. On the condition that the wheel diameter /width /Dunlop tyre  must still be with the current set regulations. This includes axle or front suspension dimensions.
In terms of suspension, suspension/axles cannot be widened to offset the wheel arch conditions).
