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.

( above ) returns to Thruxton where it set the first 100-mph special saloon lap back in 1973. Beatifully restored this is a rare opportunity to see a truly iconic special saloon car up close.
Another special saloon that's restored and put back in its period livery is the ex-George Whitehead WRA Ford Anglia that won the 1969 BRSCC Redex title outright.
