Developing the next generation of drivers and enthusiasts has been key to our business since acquiring Blue Diamond, and sponsoring a full race series for the youth winner is the next step in this journey. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the VSCC as the Awards Sponsor for the 2019 Speed Championship. This will include a new trophy for the winner of the Young Persons Award, aptly named the Blue Diamond Trophy, as well as all entry fees covered for the 2020 Speed Season.
The Vintage Sports Car Club has announced that there will be 9 Rounds in 2019— visiting Sprint tracks and Hill Climbs across the country, including a welcome return to Harewood and Shelsley Walsh. Also, the date for Curborough has been brought forward in the calendar to avoid a run of three consecutive race and speed events in May.
The provisional dates are as follows:
Round 1 – Curborough Speed Trials – Friday 19 April
Round 2 – Wiscombe Park Hill Climb – Sunday 12 May
Round 3 – Harewood Hill Climb – Saturday 1 June
Round 4 – Brooklands Sprint at the Double Twelve – Weekend 15 & 16 June
Round 5 – Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb – Sunday 7 July
Round 6 – Prescott Speed Hill Climb – Weekend 3 & 4 August
Round 7 – Loton Park Hill Climb – Saturday 7 September
Round 8 – Loton Park Hill Climb – Saturday 8 September
Round 9 – Prescott Long Course Hill Climb – Saturday 28 September
We hope to see some familiar faces at some of the events of 2019 — and are very much looking forward to awarding the Blue Diamond Trophy to the deserving winner!
