2021 turned out to be another special year, but fortunately all but one of the events went ahead without too many corona issues. Let’s hope that corona no longer throws a spanner in the works in 2022 and that at the end of the year we can honor the first international champion in our first international championship season!

NKHTGT, the Dutch organized historic racing series for FIA touring cars and GT’s built between 1947 and 1965, has announced an exciting calendar for 2022. With a total of 11 races on 6 circuits in 5 different countries, it upholds its reputation for offering unrivalled variety and plenty of track time combined with very affordable entry fees. In 2022, NKHTGT will be an International Club Championship (subject to KNAF/FIA approval).

The program kicks off in April with the “Preis der Stadt Stuttgart” at the Hockenheimring in Baden Württemberg, Germany. Of course, we race at the Zandvoort GP Circuit, this year we will be part of the Pentecost Races (‘Pinksterraces’ in Dutch). The we are off to that all-time favorite, Spa-Francorchamps for the Spa Summer Classic. In August, we are invited back to the Assen TT-circuit for the 2022 Jack’s Racing Day. Every year we try to venture to an unknown track, and for 2022 we are excited to announce that for the first time in its 26-year history, NKHTGT will travel to Sweden. At the end of August, we go to a completely new circuit for NKHTGT, which nobody knows yet except our Swedish drivers, the Scandinavian Raceway at Anderstorp! Anderstorp played host to the Swedish Formula 1 Grand prix from 1973 – 1978. This 4,25 km track with 8 corners has not changed much since then. We close the season at our much-loved autumn destination, the Circuit Dijon-Prenois. This year we will participate in the 300 km race (= 2 hours) on Saturday, with a season ending 30-minute sprint race on the Sunday. NKHTGT was founded in 1996 as the Dutch Championship for Historic Touring Cars and GTs. NKHTGT has developed into a series of international races for touring cars and GTs built between 1947 and 1965. In 2022 NKHTGT will organize an international championship for the first time. All participating cars must be prepared according to the rules of FIA Appendix K and must drive on Dunlop Racing tyres. NKHTGT attracts large starting fields and ensures exciting races with historically correct cars. It is not inconceivable that events will be cancelled due to the Covid-19 situation. If that is the case, the registration fee paid will be refunded pro rata. See below for more information.
