The Celtic Speed Mini Cooper Cup
The SMRC (Scottish Motor Racing Club) Celtic Speed Mini Cooper Cup enters its ninth championship season in 2013. Once again the championship has attracted a bumper 32-car grid of drivers, ranging from complete novices to seasoned racers. Not only are the races incredibly exciting to watch and be a part of, but they are also fiercely competitive. Steve Kerr races for Celtic Speed in a BMW Mini Cooper 1600, White Number 12 and Daniel Dreelan in the Blue Number 13. Gemma Dreelan will make occasional appearances in the championship behind the wheel of her Red Mini Number 11.
Group C Series
The Group C Racing Series recreates the great days from the Sports Car racing in the 1980's when these cars raced in the World Sportscar Championship. Celtic Speed will be racing the Spice SE86 001 Spice Pontiac Fiero (the very first all Spice Group C Car) and the Porsche 962 in the Group C Racing Series. See 2013 Group C race dates.
Spice SE86 001 Spice Pontiac Fiero
Read more information about the history of the Spice SE86 001 Spice Pontiac Fiero, the very first all Spice Group C Car.
The 1976 Ford/Cosworth-powered March 761 sat on pole position once and even had one fastest lap during its grand prix career in 1976 driven by Italian Arturo Merzario.
The March F1 cars have a specific Scottish connection. In 1970 — coincidentally on March 22 — Formula One world champion Jackie Stewart gave the March team it's first victory when he won the non-championship Race of Champions from pole position. A month later, Stewart won the Spanish Grand Prix.
