The British Automobile Racing Club delivered its own ‘Super Sunday’ at Donington Park this past weekend (August 14) as five championships took centre stage for a scorching day of tin top entertainment.
Basked in bright sunshine, the Leicestershire venue saw the gloves come off as contenders went wheel-to-whee, taking another step closer to the home stretch of the 2022 season.
Headlining the action were two 50-minute contests from the Britcar Trophy Championship and it was SVG Motorsport that proved to be the class of the field. Mark Lee, Owen Hizzey and their Ginetta G56A emerged as the perfect combination as they teamed together to score a dominant double.
Steve McDermid’s march towards retaining his Lancaster Insurance MG Owners Club Championship crown gained further momentum as he scored yet another win. Unfortunately the MG ZR driver was unable to repeat the feat later in the day after being forced to retire after just three laps.
McDermid’s misfortune benefitted Jack Woodcock as he clinched his first win of the year ahead of William Sharpe, who had originally won on the road before a post-race time penalty relegated him to second.
Adam Jones was the driver to beat in the Carbon8 Coupe Cup with Toyo Tires as he charged to a pair of wins. Jones narrowly missed out on pole position to Alistair Dendy but he rectified that as soon as the lights went out.
Jones led home Wayne Rockett and Luca Staccini in the opening contest before Stacking became his closest challenger in a pulsating race two, with Neale Hurren rounding out the rostrum.
Elsewhere, James Card was another driver to make two visits to the top step of the podium over the course of the day as he cleaned up in the Kumho BMW Championship.
Rounding out the day’s track action were a pair of races from the Welsh Sports & Saloon Car Championship, which were won by Chris Everill and Damian Longotano.
