In 2012 the Classic Sports Car Club launched it`s Special Saloons race series. In so doing it revived a whole genre of modified club racing that was once common in the UK but had been missing for too long. The cars involved were those from different strains of modified racing...70`s Super Saloons ( such as the iconic `Baby Bertha` Firenza  , 80`s/90`s Thundersaloons , Modsports , Special GTs and a variety of other fascinating machinery. Most of the cars are unique and some havn`t been seen racing for decades so the series is a kind of timewarp for enthusiasts.

This website is endorsed by the CSCC and I am grateful for their continued support of this site.
