H-C Category: "Invited" Competition Cars
This category is for Cars not allowed in any of the previous categories or cars not complying with the Appendix K. However, some cars can be considered eligible to race if the organization committee believes it will improve both the spectacle and improve other drivers’ enjoyment.
What is Appendix K?
Is the FIA common set of rules that governs Historic Racing in Europe. It dictates that only the changes made to the cars at the time can be replicated, and is usually documented on the homologation form or through a set of rules in force at that time.
New Rules for 2020
The new rules will be applied to the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS and Ford Escort and are a try to balance the performance between all.
So, next year we expect lots of fun for the Porsche 911 and Ford Escort drivers, but also for the all the others. This way, we hope that cars like Lotus Elan, AC Cobras, Jaguar E-Types will be also able to discuss the first places. The show gets better, and the public, but most important all the drivers wins.
- For Porsche, the Dunlop Post-Historic tires are not allowed and only Avon tires will be permitted. The minimum weight will be 1060 kgs.
- In the Ford Escort BDA, the weight rises 20 kgs and the minimum weight is now 810 kgs, while those who don’t have FIA Passport like the 1971 (Period G) change for the Historic 1976 category.
For Porsche, a grace period of 8 months will be given on the Dunlop tire usage rule, and the first race where this rule will be applied is on the Estoril Classics.
