Top Hat historic racing festival makes Oulton Park debut

Historic racing fans can enjoy even more classic car action at Oulton Park this season, as the Tarporley circuit has revealed the addition of a new historic racing event to its 2011 calendar on Saturday 12 March.

The Top Hat historic racing festival, which is run by Masters Historic Racing, features retro sports cars, saloons and touring cars from the past six decades. Highlights at the new Oulton Park festival will include an outing for pre-1966 saloon cars, a 1950s ‘Oldies but Goldies’ competition featuring Jaguar XKs, and a race celebrating 1970s touring and GT cars.

There will also be track action from the World Sportscar Masters series, featuring evocative sounding classic sportscars from iconic marques including Lola and Chevron, along with a Gentleman Drivers’ event featuring further historic sportscars and saloons.
