The 360 Motor Racing Club is pleased to announce that the Historic Racing Drivers Club will be one of the invited clubs providing support races for next years 360 Endurance Festival. The Historic Racing Drivers Club will have a minimum of four races over the weekend of May 5th and 6th 2012 to be held at Snetterton Race Circuit, Norfolk.
John Smith, 360 Race Director and International Clerk of the Course said “I am very pleased that the HRDC have decided to come to the 360 Endurance Festival. I have known Julius Thurgood for many years and believe that the culture that he and the HRDC have is very much in fitting of the 360 Motor Racing Club. John Smith went on to say ”We believe that the 360 will continue to grow and that the HRDC races will compliment the concept and ethos of the 360 and provide great racing at a clubman price. I am really looking forward to next years event!”
Claire Smith, Chairwoman of the 360 Motor Racing Club added “ The HRDC races are great for the overall event that is now “The 360”
“This is our third year of running and it continues to grow and from the first time of speaking with Julius I knew that the HRDC was just the sort of club that we would like to invite to support at the 360, Julius and the whole team at HRDC are focused on the same core principles that we are and that is: value for money and a great event that all can be proud to be a part of”
Julius Thurgood from HRDC said “ The HRDC is committed to providing great racing for its members and when we had the opportunity of being at the 360, we jumped at the chance, the 360 is a great event to be a part of and I and the HRDC members are really looking forward to it” He went on “Endurance style racing is great value for money particularly in these times and we believe that the 360 gives the HRDC a great platform to continue to move forward with our commitment to providing great events and give those competitors with historic cars the right platform to go out with likeminded racers who want value for money but mainly want great racing and to enjoy themselves!”
The 360 was conceived from an internet motorsport forum called Ten Tenths Motorsport whose owners sponsor the trophies for the event. Grant MacDonald from Ten Tenths said “ This is fantastic news, We have supported the 360 since it started and are very proud to continue to support it!, The 360 is “our baby” so to speak and we are delighted with the news that its getting bigger and better We are proud to be associated with it and indeed to sponsor the 360 trophies and we look forward to next years event and hopefully beyond that ...all from a thread posted on our website!”
