Masters Historic Sports Car
FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship
The FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship has been created for pre-1974 Sports Cars – the very cars that wrote some of the finest chapters in the history of the FIA World Sports Car Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours
The competition will be open to Sports Cars, Prototype Sports Cars and Group 4 GTs from 1962 to 1974 (Periods F, G and H) – all cars whose shapes served to display their very sturdy character. Although the success of the International Championship for Makes, which became the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1972, tended to fluctuate during the 12 years of its existence, several editions did generate great enthusiasm among the public and gave rise to some memorable battles involving the giants of Porsche, Ferrari, Ford, Alfa Romeo and Matra, with others such as Lola, Chevron, McLaren, Chaparral, Chevrolet, Ligier and Mirage hot on their heels.
Depending on the event, the crews entered in the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship will run either a single race lasting a minimum of 50 minutes (with a mandatory pit stop) or two races of 30 minutes each.
