The late 1970's and 80's were the golden years of the Tourism races, with several Tourism Championships flourishing across Europe, notably the European Tourism Championship endurance races. These races were very popular with the public with big flame spitting Touring cars led by Roberto Ravaglia, Steve Soper or Tom Walkinshaw between others.
The idea is to offer a new championship for more “modern” tourism racing cars, but always in the spirit of Historic Endurance, which stands for respect for opponents, a Gentlemen Driver attitude and the already famous 3 C's (No Crashing, No Cheating and No Complaining), in all the three events that will take place in Spain.
In the cars aceepted, the trophy specification cars will also be eligible, as this was the time for the Trophy “explosion”. Given the huge popularity of the Spanish Porsche 968 Trophy at the time, we will also accept these cars in our competition.
In this new competition the following cars, among others, will be accepted:
1. Tourism up to 1400cc and Group 1 and N until 1994
Ex: Toyota Starlet, Citroën Ax, Renault 5, etc.
2. Tourism Group 2 from 1976 to 1981
Ex: BMW 323i, Ford Capri after 1976, Ford Escort MK2, Rover 3500 SD1, VW Golf GTI MK1, BMW 635 (gr2), etc.
