BriSCA Heritage is an association of Stockcar racing
fans, sharing a common interest in demonstrating the rich heritage that
UK stockcar racing enjoys. Stockcars came to the UK from America in
1954 but via Paris France, where racing commenced in 1953. The contact
element of the sport is something that was added by the French promoters,
but this Gallic twist has ensured that the sport of today still features
machines with substantial bumpers that are more than just decoration!
The racing that started in the 50's featured big saloon cars, mostly
of American origin. As these evolved and became custom built specials,
a low cost second division emerged featuring UK built cars of around
1200cc engine size.
