LeMans Comes to Highlands in June

Vintage Race Cars - Special Class

In 2018, there will be the regular seven judged classes accommodating any pre-1990 car. In addition, the Highlands Motoring Festival will feature a special interest class of “Vintage Race Cars”. This is an invitational class and potential entries will need to submit an application below.

The first car accepted into the class is a 1972 BMW CSL Group 2 factory racer with many contemporary victories and podium finishes. Most significant is its class win at the 1973 LeMans at hands of drivers; Hezemans, Quester, and Stuck. After a life of competition, and with assistance from the BMW museum, the car has been rigorously restored back to its original Group 2 livery.

Cars for this class are actual documented competition vehicles built prior to 1990. This includes purpose-built race cars. Production cars that were modified in their period for competition are also included. Cars are expected to have significant racing provenance for the actual car entered. Entry fees are waived for cars accepted into this class. Special arrangements have been made for transport vehicles and trailers with off-site reserved parking.


The Vintage Race Cars special interest class is full.
