The Sports Racing & V8 series traces its origin back to 1986 as the Palladin Historic Replicar Challenge. Since then may illustrious names have competed in the series including Adrian Newey, Tony Jardine, Mike Wilds, Tiff Needell, Alex Portman and Ray Mallock to name but a few.

Through a few name changes, the basic format has stood the test of time and The Sports Racing and V8 series has endured, whilst many other racing series have come and gone, to become an established part of the British club racing scene.

Perhaps it's appeal to drivers looking to enjoy their racing in the company of like minded people without the worry of rising costs due to ever changing regulations has been the key, but testimony to its durability has to be that competitors in its first race back in 1986 are still racing in the series today. 

The series continues to welcome a wide variety of models and manufacturers catering for original and replica (pre-1976) two-seater sports and GT cars. Such diversity not only ensures attractive grids and great entertainment for spectators and competitors alike, but also value for money racing at circuits across the UK.

The series is characterised by a very friendly atmosphere and although racing on the track is taken extremely seriously and competitively, most of our competitors feel that a good season on the track is complemented by a good season in the paddock.
