The NK HTGT is the longest running historic racing series in the Netherlands. Established in 1997, it caters for Touring and GT cars conforming to Appendix K built between 1947 and 1965 running on Dunlop tyres. It is known for its wide variety of competing cars, ranging from the huge Corvette Grand Sports, Mustangs and Falcons to tiny Mini Coopers, Ginettas and Lotus, with Porsche, MG, Austin Healey, Marcos and Jaguar in between. This year its title sponsor are online auctioneers Catawiki. To call it a Dutch championship is a little misleading, since NK drivers come from all over Europe, from Sweden to Portugal. They will run in six events this year, visiting five different circuits. Starting at Paul Ricard at the end of March, where the touring cars will share the Masters’ touring car grid and the GTs
will share in the Gentleman Drivers race, the series will also run at Spa in June, at Assen in August and on 11-3 October at Dijon, with two race meetings at Zandvoort, in May and in September. Most weekends will comprise two races, and out of a total of 11 races, eight will count towards the championship. The 2018 Dutch champion is Brian Lambert from the UK, who races a Ginetta G4, the smallest capacity car in the series.
