This is the story of the Historic Sports Car Club. Over a period of
50 years, the Club grew from the germ of an idea to become
Britain's leading race organising Club for cars from the 1960s,
1970s and 1980s. The Club's strapline is 'pure historic racing'.
This unique book, illustrated with over 500 photographs, tells the
story of half a century of growth for historic racing in Great
Britain. It is a story of ups and downs, of triumph and tragedy.
From humble beginnings, the early years were faltering before the
Club moved into race organisation in the early 1980s. There were
times of financial trauma and upheaval and the Club came close to
bankruptcy. However, the last two decades have been spectacularly
successful. The race programme has grown, the membership has hit
record levels and the portfolio of championships has doubled.
Allied to that success, the Club's finances have improved beyond
all recognition and its standing in British motor sport has scaled
new heights. This is the story of those 50 years: but it is also
the story of the people behind the Club, people who cared enough
about historic motor racing to play a role in building the Historic
Sports Car Club.
