The Jaguar Classic Challenge returns for 2017 and introduces two new events to the five-race series.
Classic Jaguars built before 1966 will take on the series, with a beautiful range of vehicles expected to compete in every round of the season.
In the championship's third season, drivers will now have to take on the historically great Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium in the Spa Six Hours. This will close the season between 15th and 17th September and drivers will be pushed to the limit at the notoriously challenging track.
The Silverstone Classic has been moved to a new set of dates on the 28th, 29th and 30th July, and is between the Brands Hatch Super Prix and the Oulton Park Gold Cup as the mid-point of the season.
The full list of races for 2017 is as follows:
- 28-30 April: Donington Historic Festival
- 1-2 July: Brands Hatch Super Prix (GP Circuit)
- 28-30 July: Silverstone Classic
- 26-28 August Oulton Park Gold Cup
- 15-17 September: Spa Six Hours
The series maintains its accordance with the FIA's Appendix K technical regulations, which help to preserve the spirit of historic racing by paying close attention to the vehicle's differing specifications and the true sense of competition.
Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, Tim Hannig, said:
Now in its third season, the Jaguar Classic Challenge continues to build, and pay homage to, the brand's rich racing history. To see such a diverse array of iconic cars from Jaguar's past racing on the world's finest circuits is a sight to behold, and we are delighted to confirm Silverstone and Spa for the 2017 calendar.
