It gives MSVR enormous pleasure to welcome the Legends Cars Championship to our ranks for the 2024 season onwards.

This upcoming year marks the 30th anniversary season for the 5/8 scale racers - powered by 1250cc Yamaha motorcycle engines, with bodystyles based on 1930s Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge cars from the USA – and MSVR looks forward to playing its part in the continued development of the championship. The gripping, close-quarter action that has become synonymous with Legends Cars will make for an excellent addition to MSVR’s expansive and diverse racing portfolio.

MSVR have enjoyed working with Legends Cars in the past, at high-profile events like American SpeedFest at Brands Hatch, and now eagerly await welcoming the ‘all-action pocket rockets’ to more MSVR race weekends in 2024. A varied and impressive calendar has been curated for Legends Cars in 2024, including SpeedFest at Brands Hatch and an additional American festival at Snetterton. The championship will furthermore play a starring role at other promoted meetings throughout the season, with a view of introducing new viewers (and fans!) to the action-packed category.

Joe East – MSVR Commercial and Competitions Manager:

“I’m delighted to welcome the Legends Cars Championship family, headed up by Phil Cooper, to MSVR from 2024. Legends is an excellent series, known for its crowd-pleasing on-circuit battles, which has been a popular addition to selected MSVR events, most notably American SpeedFest, in the past. We’re hugely excited to welcome the Championship and its competitors to MSVR full-time, and we’re looking forward to a bright future.”

Phil Cooper – Legends Cars Championship Owner:

“Next year is an incredibly important one for our much-loved Legends Cars Championship, our 30th anniversary season in the UK, so what better time to embark on this incredibly exciting move to join the fantastic stable of championships organised by MSVR. The professionalism offered by MSVR is second to none, so we’re all relishing this new partnership as Legends Cars move into a new era. After an outstanding 2023, with the new Legends Cars Elite Cup at the BTCC events and a thrilling battle in the overall Championship, we cannot wait to see what 2024 brings with MSVR.”

Simon Belcher – Legends Cars Championship Co-Director:

“The 2024 season is just around the corner which marks 30 years of Legends Cars in the UK, providing the amazing bumper-to-bumper action everybody loves. It is great to start working with MSVR in our anniversary year, we’re very much looking forward to it, and also headlining promoted events with them around the country – alongside the three events we have already announced supporting the British Touring Car Championship. It certainly looks like a year for us to celebrate and for the fans and drivers to enjoy.”
