INTRODUCTION

JOIN US FOR THE 2021 MASTERS TOUR! We have a great season in store, whether you plan to race with us in the UK, Europe or North America! After a difficult 2020 Season, we are planning to bounce back this year with a fantastic schedule for 2021! We hope we have a little ‘something’ for everyone this year and we can entice you out to race with us! We will have 6 great race series (plus the Single Seater Demos) in action in the UK / Europe and, excitingly, there is a new series joining the Masters USA family this year too. So, if you want to be part of an international community of like-minded racing enthusiasts, then Masters is the place for you! Masters Historic Racing sets out to be a warm and friendly racing community, with an ethos of excellent customer service and camaraderie. We have some terrific new venues to look forward to, new faces to welcome into the paddock and exciting new cars to see out on track. Together, we will celebrate your victories, share your achievements, and help you enjoy a successful and fun-filled racing year.

What’s in store for 2021? In Europe, the five core Masters series are sure to put on some spectacular racing at each event, accompanied by the Mighty Masters Pre-66 Minis who will have 3 standalone races in 2021. We also welcome the Masters Single Seater Demos, who will be making some great noise and celebrating single-seater history from the past half century! Across the Atlantic, the USA Season will see its two main series, Masters Historic Formula One USA and Masters Endurance Legends USA on a whistle-stop tour of the great US road circuits from March to December. The new series, Masters Formula Atlantic Plus, will join the US ranks, catering for Under 2-litre monoposto cars in the shape of Formula Atlantic, Formula 2 and Formula Super Vee cars. The grid will be split into 2 classes, initially for Pre-79 and Pre-86 cars, with the intention of running two trial events in 2021 to gauge support before embarking on a fuller schedule in 2022, if the initiative proves popular.

Need some help? Stuck to know if your car is eligible or which series it might fit into? Fear not, we are here to help! Our Masters website has a run down of our race series and what cars are eligible for them – take a look at www.mastershistoricracing.com/race-series. Or, you can always email us the details of your car to team@mastershistoricracing.com

12 | 14 MARCH • SEBRING

LET’S GO RACING! START YOUR US SEASON AT THE SEBRING SPORTSCAR WEEK

We are delighted that Masters Endurance Legends USA have been invited to Sebring International Raceway, for a season-opener at Sebring SportsCar Week. It marks the start of a nine-day-racing-schedule in Sebring, culminating with the prestigious Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Advance Auto Parts on March 20. Joining the support race bill alongside the Porsche Sprint Challenge, IMSA Prototype Challenge and GT Celebration, this is a special high-profile weekend that will get the season underway in style!

mastershistoricracing.com

Known as the second longest major road course in North America, Sebring has a 3.74-mile, 17-turn circuit, using the runways and roads from the former Army Air Base. Located only a couple of hours away from the areas of Tampa Bay and Palm Beaches, with plenty to enjoy in the nearby Highlands County if you need some action off-track, this is a great way to kickstart your new racing season. So, it may be a little early but at least it’s in Florida! Dust off those winter cobwebs and head to the Sunshine State to get your US season underway... Sebring-style!
