Universal Racing Services has released it’s provisional dates for the Classic FF2000 Series 2020 season with the HSCC . A potential 16 race series will give an opportunity for Classic FF2000 cars to compete at Silverstone GP, Brands Hatch GP & Oulton Park GP circuits. Series Co-ordinator Ken Thorogood is also hoping to stage stand alone URS CF2000 races at Brands Hatch Indy in April and at Cadwell Park in September, he added: ‘We hope that competitors from the Historic FF2000 Championship will take advantage of the HSCC’s £99.00 offer for another qualifying and another two races in that same car, which will allow Classic FF2000 to stage these two races alone’. Add to that the opportunity to race at Dijon in May, 2020 is looking a superb proposition – 25th September 2019.
