Masters Historic Racing are proud to release a hugely exciting calendar for the 2024 UK & European Tour, mixing classic events with electrifying venues making a long-awaited return.
All six Masters grids will be back next year to build on a positive 2023 season that saw the historic motor racing community as a whole bounce back from the challenges of Covid and Brexit.
Masters will focus on eight key events in 2024, continuing the approach of offering drivers as many Masters grids as possible at every event on the calendar, allowing competitors to mix and match their cars across the various grids. With three race meetings in the UK and five events on the European continent, the 2024 calendar provides a balance that fits in with Masters’ international outlook while acknowledging a strong British home base.
The traditional season-opening Masters Test Day on 19 March will once again take place at Donington Park, after which Masters are pleased to kick off the 2024 race season by taking two key grids to Paul Ricard for the Grand Prix de France Historique on 19-21 April. Masters Racing Legends for 1966/1985 F1 cars and Masters Endurance Legends will be the grids travelling down to the south of France for this season-opener and it is hoped this event will provide a good opportunity for Masters Racing Legends F1 competitors to test their cars ahead of the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix Historique.
Two venues both making a very welcome return to the Masters calendar are Brno and Mugello. Masters last raced at Brno in 2014 and are truly looking forward to travelling to the Czech Republic with five grids for the Brno Grand Prix Revival on 12-14 July. Mugello, meanwhile, is a circuit that Masters has not raced at since since 2008 and has been on the wish list for many Masters drivers for a long time. Masters is delighted to have now made their wish come true with the Mugello Racing Weekend as the season finale on 11-13 October.
With Easter coming particularly early in 2024, the date of the Masters Historic Race Weekend at Donington Park has been moved to 3-4 August. The 18th Anniversary of Masters’ own Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch will take place on 25-26 May, the retro-fun of the Historic Grand Prix at Zandvoort moves one week later to 21-23 June, all six Masters grids will showcase their talents at world's largest historic motorsport event, the Silverstone Festival on 23-25 August, whilst the Spa Six Hours takes centre stage on 26-29 September.
Further details on each event in the 2024 UK & EU Masters Tour, as well as details of the US events, will be released in due course.
