2CV Championship to headline Snetterton weekend with 24-hour title showdown race

The destiny of the 2CV Parts.com Classic Racing Championship will be decided at Snetterton this weekend (August 16/17/18) with reigning champion Pete Sparrow and Nick Crispin set for a final showdown to see who will lift the coveted title for 2019.

In what is the 29th edition of the much-loved event, the Liqui Moly 2CV 24-Hour race will bring the curtain down on what has been another vintage year of on-track action for the iconic category.

This year in particular has been one of celebration for the championship with 2019 seeing the 100th anniversary of Citroen, the 70th anniversary of the 2CV and the 30th anniversary since the inaugural 2CV race taking place.

Touring the UK – stopping off at Silverstone, Cadwell Park, Mallory Park and Brands Hatch along the way – the destiny of the title has boiled down to just two drivers.

Entering the year donning the mantel of defending champion, Sparrow has proven himself to be a tour-de-force. Scoring five wins, including braces at the first two events, Sparrow heads to East Anglia with a 66-point advantage over Crispin and on the cusp of becoming a back-to-back champion.

Whilst Sparrow has visited the top step of the podium, Crispin is yet to do so as it stands. Putting together an ultra-competitive run of results, the lead protagonist has tallied the points as the year has progressed – placing him within touching distance heading into the finale.

Brian Heerey, Lien Davies, Alec Graham, David O’Keefe and Tom Perry have all scored victories at one stage during the season and they too will be one’s to watch as they bid to triumph one more time before the season is out.

The 2CV Parts.com Classic Racing Championship may be the headline act over the course of the weekend in Norfolk but there will be plenty more British Automobile Racing Club action taking place as well.

Fans of all things tin tops will be well-catered for virtue of the Uncle Luke’s BARC Saloon Series, KW Automotive Classic VW Cup and the TDi North Honda VTEC Challenge, all of which will duke it out for the latest honours around the 2.97-mile circuit.

Further thrills and spills are expected to come in the shape of the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup. Having enjoyed bumper grids throughout the year already, the popular one-make series is set to write another illustrious chapter in its history with two more pulsating encounters.
