on makes and models that have a period racing history.

and which are presented both mechanically and aesthetically as they
were in period. Only invited Schedule K cars are eligible.

The focus of
Historic Saloon Cars is to provide a safe, enjoyable environment
where enthusiasts can build and race period correct sedans amongst
like-minded enthusiasts. There is no championship, no points, and
no rewards are given for finishing positions. Emphasis is placed
on car presentation and period correctness. A successful racing
event for Historic Saloon Cars is one where owners take their cars
home free of damage.
