BARC quartet set for race day of twists and turns at Cadwell Park

The British Automobile Racing Club is set to make it an Easter Sunday to remember this weekend (April 21) as four championships get set to take on the technical twists and turns of Cadwell Park.

In what is the first of three visits to the Lincolnshire-based track over the course of 2019 by the BARC, those attending are set to be treated to a feast of on-track entertainment from the opening lap.

Having kicked off their year at Silverstone, the 2CV Classic Racing Championship will continue with a trio of 20-minute races scheduled to take place. Reigning champion Pete Sparrow set his stall out as the man to beat last month by storming to a pair of race wins and it would be hard to bet against him adding to his win tally on Sunday.

Leading the chase for Sparrow are several front-running contenders including former champion Lien Davies, Nick Crispin and Nigel Hollis – to name just a few. Boasting another bumper entry list, this iconic car and series has continued to be a smash-hit and that theme should continue at Cadwell Park.

Flying the flag for the Club’s North West Centre, the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship will be back action with a wide variety of cars set to battle it out for supremacy.

Coming off the back of a disjointed opening event at Oulton Park where there was a red flag stoppage for a start-line incident followed by the race finishing under a safety car, hopes are high for a smoother race day – with two frenetic encounters taking place.

Notable names to keep an eye on over the course of the day include Oulton Park victor Jon Woolfit in his MK Indy, Paul Dobso, David Harvey and Nigel Mustill, amongst many more.

The Mighty Minis Championship meanwhile will lift the curtain on their 2019 season with two races. Never short of producing door-to-door action, the iconic Mini will once more take fans on a spirited trip down memory lane to showcase why it became one of the most popular cars globally.

Split into two classes, Mighty Mini and Super Mighty Mini, the championship is proving to be as popular as it ever has done with a healthy grid size for this Sunday. Amongst them is a list of possible title contenders that are hungry to make their mark during the opening weekend of the year.

Reigning champion Stuart Coombs, David Kirkpatrick, Alex Comis, Paul Inch and Paul Ogborn are just five drivers to cast a watchful eye over.

Capping off the action at Cadwell Park will be a pair of races from the British Superkart Championship. Small in stature but able to clock eye-watering speeds, the very best karting drivers in the country will be going wheel-to-wheel in a bid to top the podium – and it is not to be missed.
