Sports 2000 Historic (Pinto) Championship

The championship is a dedicated series for Sports 2000 cars built using the 2 litre Ford Pinto engine. It captures the spirit of the past and the cars remain true to the period.

Eligibility is based on the Sports 2000 technical regulations. The original 1977 series featured many of the major British sports prototype race car manufacturers such as Lola, Tiga, March, Chevron and Royale and is fondly remembered for well-known sports car racers of the time such as James Weaver, Howden Ganley and Divina Galicia.
Historic racing has attracted a huge amount of support in the last few years, resulting in race cars of ‘provenance’ commanding very high prices. These historic Sports 2000 cars still remain relatively affordable today, but as the cars become more sought after prices are likely to increase.
From the 2022 season the Historic Championsip will be open to all Pinto engined Sports 2000 cars.
The championship will be split in to 3 classes based on thier date of manufacture:
Class A 1987 and later, including all Swift DB2 cars.
Class B 1984 to 1986
Class C 1983 and earlier
