BARC North West Centre signs off season in style at Oulton Park

The British Automobile Racing Club’s North West Centre closed out its season in style this past Saturday (October 23) with an action-packed day of racing at Oulton Park. 

Capping off another year of organising high-octane events, the North West Centre saw four championships play out an entertaining race day around the International layout of the Cheshire venue.

The CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship fittingly brought the curtain down on another vintage year with a bumper entry list and some captivating wheel-to-wheel battles.

With several drivers all in contention to be crowned champion, all eyes were on the front runners. Despite his best efforts, which included winning both races overall on the day, Paul Rose settled for class title honours as Jamie Cryer powered his way to outright championship glory for the second successive year in a row. 

The Kumho BMW Championship also signed off the year at Oulton Park and as he has done on many occasions throughout the campaign, James Card proved to be the driver to beat as he stormed to a pair of wins.

Much of Saturday afternoon saw the Silverlake C1 Racing Series take centre stage for its latest three-hour endurance contest of the campaign. Having seen plenty of ups and downs take place over the course of the year, the one-make delivered an exciting fight for the win.

When the chequered flag ultimately fell, emaxmotorsport ran out as the winners – more than 90 seconds clear of their nearest challengers after completing no less than 71 laps. 

Rounding out the day’s competition were two races from the Tiedman Trophy, which were won by Ben Powney and Nikita Abramov.
