Starring a host of iconic cars as raced in period by the likes of Jochen Rindt, Ronnie Peterson, Jody Scheckter, Graham Hill and Sir Jackie Stewart, the flourishing Historic Formula 2 International Series is open to cars built between 1967 and the end of the 1978 season.
It was a magical era when F2 was the absolute proving ground for young drivers intent on making the step into Grand Prix racing, and when it was not unusual for F1 stars to step back into F2 on their free weekends. Chassis rivalry was just as fierce, with Matra and Martini from France and Tecno from Italy against March, Brabham, Lotus and Chevron from Great Britain.
Offering fast and reasonably accessible racing, the Historic 2 Series – organised by the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) – is enjoying a huge revival regularly attracting grids of around 30 cars. Now with more chassis’ being prepared and a double-header date at the Classic in prospect, the HSCC is again aiming for up to 50 cars – a target, if achieved, matching the biggest-ever Formula 2 grid as seen at the Classic in 2019.
