The BARC North West Centre's sports and saloon championship has been running for 31 years. This year it is again sponsored by CNC Heads. Anyone who has raced in this championship will tell you that it is one of the most welcoming places to race. It is also very competitive. A class leader can also be a championship leader.
The average grid has been over 30 for the last three seasons. We often have reserve entries at popular circuits.
The championship is for Modified and Special cars with three separate classes for each based on engine capacity.
The regulations have been carefully developed with the drivers over many years and are famously stable so that cars can remain affordably competitive and eligible. All cars must be based visually (in the case of specials) or for real (in the case of modifieds) on a type of car which was originally designed as a road car.
We visit popular drivers' circuits. Our home circuit is Oulton Park with several rounds there each season. We also visit Cadwell Park, Anglesey, Donington and Croft.
We run several double header meetings each season to save on travel costs without reducing the number of rounds.
If you would like to start racing contact us and we will help. The friendly atmosphere in the championship always welcomes and supports new drivers. You can be sure that you will be as safe as possible on the circuit with experienced drivers around you who do not indulge in contact!
Help and advice will always be offered to anyone who has a problem in the paddock; we all want to see the drivers and cars on the track not struggling to make the race. Most drivers prepare their own cars so there is a lot of support for each other.
What have you got? A silhouette, Eurocar, V6 & V8, TVR Tuscan challenge car, Caterham or Westfield, one make saloon or sports car, hatchback, modified road car? If you have one, contact us and talk about it; we do have a suitable competitive class to run it in.
Previous champions include Paul Dobson in his Mazda RX7, Ian Hall and Iain Gorrie in their Darrians, Dennis Crompton in his BMW M3 and Duncan Aukland won in his Rover 3500SE. The 2014 winner was Steven Hibbert in his Lotus Exige. The 2015 winner is Joe Spencer in his Locosaki.
The championship is rarely decided before the last round so the level of competition and excitement is high with the final meeting usually a double header at Oulton Park.
