The British Automobile Racing Club kicked off its 2022 season in sensational style at Silverstone this past weekend (March 12/13) with the British Endurance Championship, Praga Cup and Britcar Trophy Championship all taking centre stage.
After months of excitement and anticipation, the Grand Prix layout of the Northamptonshire venue provided the backdrop for the first track action of the year for the Club, with TV cameras in attendance to broadcast every lap on Facebook and YouTube.
Headlining the weekend was the new-for-2022 British Endurance Championship, the Motorsport UK-sanctioned iteration of what was formerly known as the Britcar Endurance Championship.
With revised regulations, and a modified class structure to guarantee competitiveness across a range of machines, the three-hour encounter served up a feast of entertainment for those watching both trackside and online.
Having qualified towards the lower end of the top ten, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 pairing of Lucky Khera and Lee Frost produced a superlative performance during the race to clinch a dominant victory – lapping the entire field on their way to the top step of the podium.
Following on from a groundbreaking 2021 where they featured alongside Britcar, the inaugural Praga Cup made its debut at the Home of British Motor Racing and it too didn’t disappoint.
Two one-hour races had fans on the edge of their seats from start-to-finish, with just under two seconds separating the top three in the opening bout. Alex Connor and Tom Canning edged out the competition to win race one before Charlie Hall and Scott Mittell teamed up to prevail in race two.
Capping off the endurance competition was a brace of contests from the Britcar Trophy Championship which saw Ginetta entrants SVG Motorsport and Motus One score a win apiece.
The Super Series by the British Superkart Racing Club saw three pulsating races play out, with the spoils being shared between Matt Robinson and Liam Morley; Robinson heading Morley to clinch a pair of wins.
Rounding out the weekend’s track action was a solitary race from the Uncle Lukes Snetterton Saloons with Z Cars Racing Championship, where Rhys Lloyd claimed a dominant victory in his Opel Astra TCR.
