While us Yanks had to suffered the Malaise Era with neutered V8s, Europe enjoyed more powerful and exciting touring cars, which will be celebrated in a new vintage racing series. It's Europe-only, but "selected cars" from America will be invited.

The JD Classics Challenge launches next year during the Donington Historic Festival, and all Group A and Group 1 and 2 cars from the years 1977-198 are welcome. This means Audi Coupes battling it out with Ford Sierras and BMW 528s. Hell, maybe even a Starion will show up.
