Sports 2000 is a restricted-rules class of two-seat, rear-engined, open-cockpit, full-bodied sports-prototype racecar.
Sometimes known as S2000 or S2, the class was developed in the 1970s as an affordable form of sports car racing, essentially a sports car version of Formula Ford 2000. The key attributes of the class were a body design reminiscent of two-liter Group 6 sports racing cars like the Chevron B21 and Lola T-212 but with an ultra-reliable and inexpensive drivetrain comprising a two-liter “Pinto” overhead camshaft engine with very limited modifications allowed.
S2000 aerodynamics evolved beyond their Group 6 roots, with very ‘slippery’ cars. In the UK S2000 was largely seen as an alternative to front-engined Clubmans racing, a class for amateurs who were often deeply involved in developing their own cars over periods of years.
The series has recently undergone something of a revival in both historic and contemporary forms as a relatively low-cost form of sports car racing.
Since 1988 Chris has had a passion for Sports 2000. The car below was bought in 2005 to be campaigned in the Historic Sports 2000 Championship.
In 2007 Chris won the Historic Championship title after a fiercely fought season long battle with Niklas Johansson.
