But for a taster here are some highlights in the next few months.

The Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) get their 2019 season underway at Snetterton on 6/7 April for a busy weekend of racing on the high-speed 300 circuit, featuring a number of the CSCC's most popular series.

Racing this event includes the exciting Swinging Sixties Series, in which Jaguar E-Types, Ford Mustangs, Aston Martins, and a wide variety of other vehicles as retro machines jostle for track position in a race solely for 1960s machinery.

Another truly old-school series to look out for is the Classic K series, which runs to Appendix K regulations, meaning that the machines are run in a specification similar to those raced in period. As a result, all of the cars in action are running without any sort of modern driver aids of aerodynamics, meaning that driver skill will be rewarded.

Also featuring this weekend is the Gold Arts Magnificent Sevens Series, which features lightweight sports cars based on the original Lotus 7 design. Expect some of the biggest grids including models from Caterham, Lotus, Westfield, Locost and many others.

The Advantage Motorsport Future Classics series will also take to the 300 circuit over the weekend with an eclectic mix of sports, saloons and GT cars from the 1970's and 1980's set to compete. Races are run over 40 minutes with the added excitement of a mandatory pit stop promising tactical racing.

Other series to look out for include the Jaguar Saloon and GT, Tin Tops, Modern Classics, New Millenium and CSCC Open Series.

2019 British GT Championship - 18th & 19th May

Seven manufacturers will be represented in the championship's flagship GT3 class, including five of the class's latest generation models: the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3, Bentley Continental GT3, Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo, McLaren 720S GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3 R. The BMW M6 GT3 makes its British GT debut too this year in a new-look, 14-car GT3 entry, of which only the Mercedes-AMG GT3 has previously appeared in the series.

There's also a wealth of talent in GT3, which features drivers with a combined total of 13 British GT titles. Reigning champion Jonny Adam will be eager to extend the GT3 and overall wins record beyond his current 14 while also monitoring the progress of Phil Keen who remains just one behind. 

Meanwhile, the GTC class also returns full-time to British GT for the first time since 2013 courtesy of a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and WPI Motorsport, which will evaluate its GT3 graduation as the season progresses. 

GT4 continues to go from strength-to-strength too, with a record-equalling entry of 23 cars and eight manufacturers. Four models - the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4, Ford Mustang GT4, KTM X-Bow GT4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport - are either brand-new for 2019 or have never previously contested a British GT round. A ninth manufacturer could also join the full-season entry list before Oulton Park opens the campaign next month.
