BARC quartet revved up for blockbuster Brands Hatch weekend

The British Automobile Racing Club speeds back to Brands Hatch this weekend (July 31/August 1) for an action-packed two days of track action which will undoubtedly prove pivotal in deciding who will be crowned champion come the end of the season.

Taking centre stage around the Indy circuit of the Kent venue, four categories will continue their campaigns in front of a packed trackside audience and thousands watching online.

Headlining the weekend’s action will be races from both the Endurance and Trophy classes of the Britcar Endurance Championship. Enjoying its best-ever season to-date, Britcar has continued to go from strength-to-strength this year with healthy grid sizes for both Endurance and Trophy.

As momentum builds heading into the business end of the season, the battle for supremacy at the top of the standings in both is only set to ramp up across the individual classes.

Those worth casting a watchful eye over include Richard Morris, Will Powell, Dave Scaramanga, Simon Baker and Richard Higgins, along with many, many more.

The Classic Touring Car Racing Club is revved up to take centre stage at Brands Hatch this weekend as it continues what has already proven to be an ultra-competitive season.

Renowned for producing close-quarter wheel-to-wheel entertainment, no less than eight races will take place across both days too; and not one of them will be worth missing.

Showcasing the very best tin tops and enforcing the point that variety is the spice of life, Brands Hatch will see the Pre ’66 Classic Saloon & Historic Touring Cars, Shell Oils Pre ’83 Touring Cars, Laser Tools Pre ’93 Touring Cars and Simply Serviced Pre ’03 Touring Cars all in action.

There will be further thrills and spills from the Blue Oval Saloon Series, Edmundson Electrical Classic / Historic Thunder Saloons and Jaguar Enthusiasts Club Saloon & GT Championship during the weekend too.

History books will be rewritten in the Junior Saloon Car Championship as the one-make series fields its biggest-ever grid. Eclipsing the previous record of 27, the JSCC will boast a 28-car line-up for what are expected to be two pulsating contests.

Charlie Hand finds himself in the box seat and as the driver everyone is chasing after building a commanding lead in the standings. Chalking up a number of race wins alongside a consistent run of results, Hand heads to Brands with a 31-point lead that he will be keen to extend.

Leading the chase for the 2020 runner-up is Harvey Caton whilst the likes of Alife Jeakins, Ruben Hage and Aaron Walker are all within touching distance of the summit as well.

Rounding out the weekend’s track action in the Garden of England will be two races from the Kumho BMW Championship. Open to any production BMW sold in the UK, the series has garnered a reputation for close racing and that is expected to continue.

Notable names to look out for include Kevin Denwood, Brad Sheehan, Trevor Ford, Peter Miller and Darren Morgan-Owen.
