CMH Official build up to the event
Round 8 of the 2021 CMH Gold Star leads the drivers to the exotic Bahrain International Circuit for some action in 2005 GP2 cars. Identical Dallara GP2/05 cars with 600 HP and modern-ish technology – after such a long time in the 20th century, who’ll be able to handle the new cars best?
The event will feature a 34-lap feature race, with its top-8 results reversed will determine the grid for the 24-lap Sprint Race.
About the cars and series
2005 was the first season of the new GP2 Series, replacing the International Formula 3000 Championship, which had been running for the past twenty years at that point. The new GP2 car was the Dallara GP2/05, which replaced the Lola B02/50.
Powering the new Dallara was a 4-liter Renault-badged Mecachrome engine, outputting 600 bhp, quite an upgrade over the Lola, which housed a 3-Liter Zytek-Judd V8 with a peak output of 520 bhp in its final year.
As Tyre supplier, Bridgestone replaced Avon for 2005
The annual CMH Gold Star is an open championship held during the entire year by Classic Motorsport Hub. While other series use a certain type of car, the Gold Star Events use all kinds of cars, from Formula cars to Touring Cars, to Rally Cars. The best overall driver in all categories will be crowned the champion at the end of the racing season.
