The BTRDA Historic Cup is for competitors with Historic stage rally cars who enjoy competing on some of the best one day forest rallies in the UK. It is open to any Historic Stage Rally Car that complies with the appropriate MSA Technical Regulations.

The BTRDA Historic Cup will be split into 3 classes: –

Class H1 All Historic Category 1 cars / Category 2 and 3 cars up to 1600cc / Category 4 cars up to 1400cc
Class H2 Historic Category 2 & 3 cars with single cam engines over 1600cc / Category 4 cars up to 1600cc

Competitors in the BTRDA Historic Cup will also score points within the overall RAVENOL Gold Star and Silver Star Championships so there is a double incentive to participate.
