BARC Red Sports & Saloons confirmed for sophomore season

After breaking new ground in 2020, the British Automobile Racing Club can confirm that its popular BARC Red Sports/Saloons format will return for its sophomore season, with three events currently scheduled to take place over the course of 2021.

Open to competitors who drive open/closed roof Sports & Saloon cars, regardless of what championship or racing club they compete in and providing they met current Motorsport UK safety regulations, the series of races garnered plenty of attention from the outset last year and duly delivered.

Formatted to feature a 20-minute qualifying session and two 20-minute races over the course of a weekend, entries are accepted with a pre declared lap time for the specific circuit upon which competitors have entered into. Classes are then changed post-qualifying and post-race if competitors ran two or more laps faster in a qualifying session or race than their nominated class allowance stipulates.

Now, with experience from last year and interest building, a total of three events will be run during the forthcoming season.

BARC Red will feature at Oulton Park on April 17, Knockhill on May 29/30 and Thruxton on July 3/4.

Those interested in competing should contact BARC Competitions Secretary David Wheadon via
