All systems go as C1 Racing Club begins new chapter

As the start of the 2021 season draws ever-closer, the C1 Racing Club has been making preparations to ensure it enjoys another campaign that is bigger and better than the one that went before it.

Renowned for producing big grids and exciting endurance racing at a low cost, the one-make series is primed for another sensational year with a bumper bill of events scheduled to play out across the length and breadth of the UK.

Whilst teams and drivers are readying themselves for the opening meeting of the season, plenty of work has gone on behind the scenes in reorganising management personnel.

Following the sad passing of Meyrick Cox prior to Christmas, the C1 Racing Club has announced that RAW Motorsport Limited and their Managing Director Robin Welsh will take over the running of the Club. The Club’s name, features and processes that competitors have become familiar with will all remain the same.

Welsh vast experience in running a large motorsport club, along with his technical environment in the BMW Compact Series made him a logical choice for the role. Welsh helped to develop the C1 regulations in 2017 and has been a constant guide in technical matters since.

Due to the governments latest announcement on the easing of lockdown restrictions, the C1 Racing Club’s visit to Croft, scheduled to take place on April 10 has been postponed till a later date. Instead, the categories season-opener will be its much-loved 24-hour event at Silverstone in May.
