This really does promise to be a very special weekend for all you classic racing car enthusiasts.

Well known drivers will include champions John Cleland and Tim Harvey who will be racing along with Patrick Watts. Tim Harvey will be driving a 1980s Ford Sierra RS500 that is extremely powerful. There will be a number of other turbo-charged cars from the 1980s as well as the 1990s. For instance, John Cleland will be driving a Vauxhall Vectra from the 1990s and Patrick Watts, who is a regular attendee at these sorts of events, a Peugeot 406.

There will be people that will think the drivers will be driving rather carefully around the track but you can be certain that once the race starts they will all be competing to win.
