The FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship is the ultimate competition for Formula One cars of a golden age and in honour of the 50th anniversary of Sir Jackie Stewart's first championship victory, this year the grid will be named the Sir Jackie Stewart Trophy for FIA Masters Historic Formula One. The legend himself will be presenting the trophies for this grid.
Catering for 3-litre engined Formula One cars from 1966 through to 1985, FIA Masters Historic Formula One takes us back to an era in which Cosworth DFV power and a creative car designer could win races, long before wind tunnels and energy drinks were created! With a year-based class structure based around the iconic F1 names of Stewart, Fittipaldi, Lauda and Head, the aim is to provide competitive racing all the way through the grid.
The FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship is an emotive category in which cars ran in their period livery, delivering a superb spectacle of sight and sound, then as now.
Cars you could expect to see racing out on track include: Arrows, Brabham, Ensign, Hesketh, Ligier, Lotus, March, McLaren, Penske, Shadow, Surtees,Tyrell, and Williams.
Two races are held at the Silverstone Classic for the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship.
