Club thrills set to dazzle fans at Brands Hatch

26 Jul 17

The British Automobile Racing Club returns to Brands Hatch this weekend (29/30 July) for another busy two days of action with six championships on the billing.

Set to duke it out around the popular Indy configuration of the Kent circuit, the Dunlop Endurance Championship in Association with Trico looks set to take on a starring role.

Boasting a strong entry list, Witt Gamski and Ross Wylie enter the weekend sitting at the summit in the points. Consistency has been key for the Ferrari 458 GTE pairing and both will need to be on top form if they want to extend their advantage.

Hot on their heels are Team HARD and FF Corse, two outfits that have enjoyed great success down the years and understand what it takes to compete at the highest level. With a number of other front runners all targeting silverware, the weekend’s two encounters will be hotly contested.

With a total of ten championships in all, the Classic Touring Car Championship is likely to provide plenty of door-to-door thrills ‘n’ spills. From some of the most iconic machines in the Pre 66 Touring Car category to modern day marvels in the VTEC Challenge – there is something for everyone to be drawn towards.

Notable names to keep an eye on include Stephen Primett, Karl Cattlif, Neil Bray and Alexander Tait; all of whom have tasted success in 2017.

The penultimate round of the 2CV Classic Racing Championship will also be played out too at Brands Hatch.

Ahead of the annual season finale endurance race, rounds eight and nine will provide one of the final opportunities for drivers to thrust themselves into a position to walk away as the overall victor.

Reigning champion Lien Davies currently looks good to defend his crown having enjoyed another stellar campaign but will need to continue his fine form.

Rounding out the action will be the traditional trio of championships that run under the BARC’s South Eastern banner. The Scrapco Avon Intermarque Championship, Quaife Cannons Tin Tops Championship and Quaife Modified Saloons Championship are well-known around Kent with a majority of their races being staged at the iconic track.

As it stands; Malcolm Blackman, Mikey Day and Rod Birley respectively lead the way and will be ones to watch.
