The BARC North Western Centre is very pleased to announce the 38th running of the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Championship in 2022.

The Championship is being sponsored by CNC Heads owned by competitor Ric Wood for the fifteenth successive season, we thank Ric for his continued support. Without this great support, in so many ways, there is no doubt the Championship would not be as strong as it currently is. Also this season we welcome back Graeme Laslett’s Car Service Packs Company as a valued partner.

The Championship continues the well-trodden path of recent years with very favourable entry fees and few technical changes. We visit the usual popular circuits in the North and Midlands. This season sees a return to our ‘second home’ of Anglesey for a triple header meeting in September. There is another triple meeting at the end of April at Cadwell Park, with double headers at Croft, Donington Park (with the trucks) and at the final round at Oulton Park. The season commences on the 2nd April with a single round at Oulton Park, there is a third Oulton Park visit for the Dave Simpson Memorial round at the end of May.

Registrations have been open for a few weeks and entries are already starting to come in for the opening rounds. Most of the regulars from the last few seasons have registered including six of the top seven in last year’s Championship, these include Champion Jamie Cryer in his Ginetta G20, Jon Woolfitt in his Spire GTR, the Mazda MX5 of Graeme Smith and the Citroen Xsara of Paul Rotheroe. Other returnees include Roddie Paterson (Caterham), Garry Wardle (Seat Leon and Porsche GT3), Ric Walker (BMW Mini) and Tim Foxlow (Escort RSR).

It is great to see the continued support of all the regulars but it is equally important to welcome new blood to the Championship. Newbies (though not necessarily new to the sport) include Richard Armiger (Vauxhall Tigra), Peter Smith (Class A Renault Megane) and Connor Harvey (Caterham 7) – welcome to all of you and those returning after a break from the Championship. Registered numbers are now approaching 50 drivers with 60 cars.

If you have a car and are interested but not sure if it is eligible then why not give Peter Gorrie, our Eligibility Scrutineer a call on 07813 848671 or email him at
