FHR racing series.
The Historic Motor Racing Drivers’ Association (FHR) in Haiger was founded by a committed group of active racers in 1983. In the years that followed, FHR has played a crucial role in the positive development of historic motor racing and has made it increasingly popular over the years. “By drivers for drivers” – this preamble of FHR is a core principle for our work. In no other branch of motor racing is there such as direct influence of the active athletes on their sport – not least thanks to the efforts of FHR over the past two decades. The majority of active drivers who race historic automobiles are members of FHR today. More than 500 members document the significance of this drivers' association to organisers and institutions.
Since 30 November 2000, the FHR has been organised under the umbrella of the ADAC Nordrhein. In addition, through its board members FHR is represented in important committees of the Deutscher Motorsport Bund (DMSB - the Association of German Motorsport), the ADAC (German Motorists Club), and in associations and at organisers. Racing series held in accordance with Appendix K of the international motorsport regulations of the FIA are organised under the patronage of FHR. It defines foundations that guarantee a fair race and do not turn a historic racing car into a contemporary one. This has proven successful in the past and ensures that these races will also remain a treat for the fans and that the vehicles are preserved in their original form and with their original technical features.
