The British Automobile Racing Club will lift the curtain on a brand-new motorsport season this bank holiday weekend with two race meetings – one at Donington Park and the other at Brands Hatch – making it an Easter extravaganza that is not to be missed.

After months of excitement, anticipation and preparation, the 2024 campaign is poised to blast back into life with no less than four full-throttle days of action-packed competition from some of the Club’s biggest championships.

At Donington Park, the British Endurance Championship in association with Motorsport UK will headline track action across Friday and Saturday – on the world-famous Grand Prix circuit as well no less. 

Boasting a monstrous grid of GT3 and GT4 machines, the BEC will kick off its season with a two-hour contest that is guaranteed to have fans perched on the edge of their seats.

Whilst last year’s champions have not returned to defend their crown, the battle for supremacy still looks to be as competitive as ever with the likes of Peter Erceg in his Audi R8 GT3, Witt Gamski and Michael Lyons in a Bentley Continental and the duo Lamborghini duo of John Seale and Jamie Stanley all set to be in contention. 

The Classic Touring Car Racing Club will mark its 50th year in association with the Club with a plethora of races from the Pre-66, Pre-83, Pre-93, Pre-03, Classic Thunder, Blue Oval Saloon and Super Tourer ranks. 

Variety has often been the spice of life when it has come to the CTCRC and that this year looks to be no different with packed grids and the likes of Stephen Primett, Stuart Waite, Pat Kenneally and Gary Prebble – along with many more – all locked in.

Also in action under the flightpath of East Midlands airport will be the Britcar Trophy Championship – which is set to stage two 50-minute bouts on Saturday – and the Mini 7 Racing Club and British Superkart Racing Championship. 

Hot on the heels of the chequered flag falling at Donington Park, Brands Hatch will take on the mantel of providing BARC entertainment across Sunday and Monday.

Topping the bill will be five colossal races from the British Truck Racing Championship, which returns with another ultra-competitive grid that is headlined by reigning Division 1 champion Ryan Smith and Division 2 champion Paul Rivett.

While the titans of truck racing are set to be the main attractions at the Kent venue, fans will also be able to see a host of other categories including the Junior Saloon Car Championship, Pickup Truck Racing Championship, MGOC Championship and Caterham Graduates take centre stage too.

All four days of racing will be broadcast LIVE on the BARC YouTube channel. Event information about both meetings can be found here.
