Categories that we will see in the Jarama Classic
And what categories we can see in the Circuit of the Jarama?, you may be wondering. For several and all very interesting. In the Classic Endurance Racing competing vehicles of resistance between the years 1966 and 1981, with models such as the Ford GT40, Porsche 910, or Ferrari 512.
Group C Racing, played from 1982 to 1993 he was a category a successor of the previous one, and participants had to control more the consumption of fuel, while the cars most representative were the Porsche 956 or the Peugeot 905.
Heritage Touring Cup represents a glorious era, between the years 1966 and 1984, of the European Touring car Championship (ETCC). The rivalry is assured with the BMW 3.0 CSL and 635 CSi, the Ford Escort and Capri, or the Alfa Romeo GTV6. Cars derived from street vehicles, even though by that time were more for road cars derived from circuit. A category very beautiful.
Trophy of the Legend will be the category most spectacular and difficult to see in other events. It is not something common to see in a circuit of speed cars of the 30’s, true legends of the speed whose value is difficult to calculate, rolling rhythms high. At this time firms such as Maserati, Alfa Romeo or BMW were entering the world of competition, while Bugatti was already known by all corners of the planet.
Sixties’ Endurance is dedicated to sports cars and GT between 1950 and 1965 where there are a diversity of displacements, as the V8 5-litre AC Cobra or the 1.0-liter and four cylinders of the lightweight Lotus XI. We’ll see if the AC Cobra is able to maintain stability and to take advantage of the power of his engine on the track in madrid.
