The Sports 2000 championship is one of the fastest UK sports car series, held at some of the UK and Europe’s finest circuits including Silverstone GP, Brands Hatch GP, Donington Park, Thruxton, Oulton Park and the overseas rounds at Spa, Zandvoort, Le Mans or Dijon.
The cars are rear-engined, open-cockpit, full-bodied sports-prototypes, used largely in amateur road racing. Sometimes known as S2000 or S2, the class was developed as an affordable form of sports car racing, essentially a sports car version of Formula Ford 2000. The Duratec class use Ford 2000cc, 16 Valve (Duratec DHE 420) engines.
