The Historic Sports Car Club has launched a new scheme to encourage novice competitors to join one of its most accessible race championships, Historic Road Sports.

Launched at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in November, the scheme will reward the best novice in the championship with a prestigious end-of-season trophy, and free racing membership for the following season.

Alongside the awards, drivers starting racing with the HSCC will receive a warm welcome from like-minded enthusiasts, practical support, guidance and encouragement at race weekends and free access to a wealth of expertise.

"We have always been a club that offers newcomers a perfect place to start racing," said HSCC CEO Grahame White. "We recognise that making a start in racing can be daunting, but we hope that this initiative will encourage newcomers to join us. They will be warmly welcomed and will receive all the support and advice they need."

The Gerry Marshall Award is aimed at novice drivers who wish to start racing in historic sports cars (A novice being a driver who starts the season with three or less signatures on their licence).

to present 1st award

The first award will be presented by Gerry's son Gregor; "When Kevin contacted me and asked if the club could use my late father's name for a new award for the best newcomer, I did not hesitate to say yes. It is a great honour that a club with such standing has asked, but more importantly it is very important to encourage new people into Motorsport and Dad would have fully supported and backed the idea.
I wish the club well for 2015 (and onwards) and also good luck to the first recipient of the Gerry Marshall award - I look forward to meeting you"

The HSCC calendar is one of the best available in the UK, with a schedule of high-profile historic race meetings that includes the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, the Oulton Park International circuit and Donington Park.
