Historic Formula Junior celebration at 2018 Autosport Show

Historic Formula Junior Silverstone Classic 2017

The 60th anniversary of the Formula Junior category will be a key historic motorsport display at the 2018 Autosport International Show.

The single-seater category is the best-supported class in historic racing and the Historic Sports Car Club stand will showcase six of the period single-seaters, one from each year of the category.

With a new prime location within the January 11-14 event at Birmingham's NEC, the Formula Junior display will be a major draw for up to 80,000 visitors.

Formula Junior was an international race category for six seasons from 1958 to 1963 and helped many future racing stars make their mark in the sport.

The category spanned the period when race car design switched from front to rear-engined and the cars on display at the NEC will show how much race car design advanced in just six years.

In its current form it is for racing cars up to 1100cc, using production-based engines in an diverse category representing up to 150 marques built in period.

The 2018 season is a special year for Formula Junior as the category's 60th year is also the final season of a three-year 'Diamond Jubilee World Tour'.

The tour, which has already visited Australia and New Zealand, South Africa and North America, will finally conclude at the Silverstone Classic in July.

Grahame White, CEO of the HSCC, said: "Formula Junior is a global success story in historic racing and we are delighted to be able to showcase it on our major display at Autosport International.

"I think visitors will love seeing a selection of these fantastic racing cars of the late 1950s and early 1960s."
