The BARC Connaught Speed Championship is set for its biggest ever season this year after unveiling a bumper 33-round calendar, of which the ten best scores will decide who walks away as champion.
Having been one of several championships that elected to take a sabbatical from competition in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is currently gearing up for what will be a record-breaking campaign.
Boasting the biggest ever calendar it has produced, this year’s schedule has been split, with 50% of the venues at hillclimbs such as Shelsley Walsh, Barbon, Prescott, Harewood and Gurston, and the other 50% taking place at sprints including Curborough, MIRA, Snetterton and Anglesey.
New-for-2021 is the introduction of the ‘Studio5009 – Classic Cup’, which is a bonus award designed for cars built prior to January 2001. With a handicap system in place to favour old, standard saloon machines, a balance throughout the field should ensure close results from the get-go.
In addition, Connaught Competition Engines have continued as the categories primary sponsor for the third successive year whilst a further four other sponsors will continue to fund a variety of awards too.
Those interested in competing in the 2021 BARC Connaught Speed Championship should contact Championship Coordinator Bob Adams via email@example.com or by heading to the website where the entry fee is just £35.00.
