BARC speeds into Snetterton for two days of action-packed thrills

The British Automobile Racing Club speeds into Snetterton this weekend (July 3/4) with four championships ready to continue their respective campaigns.

With summer upon us and spectators continuing to make their return trackside, the weekend has all the hallmarks of being an instant classic.

Back out of the border following their highland fling at Knockhill, the Junior Saloon Car Championship will make its second trip to the Norfolk venue with a grid of youngsters that are revved up for action.

Charlie Hand remains the driver to beat as it stands having paired raw speed with relentless consistency, however he will need to be at his best if he is to continue his spell at the summit. Hot on his heels are a number of front-running contenders and leading the chase is Harvey Caton and Aaron Walker.

Throw into the mix the likes of fie Jeakins, Ruben Hage, Matthew Cripps, Loui Hounsell, Harry Rice, Tommy Gilham, Ashley Gregory, Jacob Heap and Oliver Cottam, and you begin to see why the weekend’s two contests will be so fiercely fought over.

Elsewhere, the Silverlake C1 Racing Series is gearing up for an epic weekend at Snetterton which will consist of no less than seven hours of track time.

Having kicked off the season with their annual Silverstone 24-hour race in May, the much-loved one-make category descends on the 300 layout boasting a bumper, ultra-competitive field.

Qualifying will take place on Saturday morning before a three-hour contest that afternoon caps off the action for day one. They’ll then return on Sunday for a slightly longer four-hour bout.

The Max5 Racing Championship is set to make the first of its back-to-back trips to Snetterton this Sunday with the battle for supremacy delicately poised.

Renowned for producing high-octane, wheel-to-wheel entertainment, the one-make series has already starred at Cadwell Park and Silverstone, and it is expected that they will do the same around the near three-mile track.

Paul Roddison finds himself in the box seat as it stands, with four wins from four races putting him top of the standings. The series stalwart will need to be at his best however as the likes of Jeremy Shipley, Ben Taylor, Kimberley Nolan and Joe Jacob have all made their mark over the course of the opening two events and they can’t be discounted.

Fans of all things BMW will be well-catered for as the Kumho BMW Championship continues its 2021 season with two races. Showcasing a variety of different models from the Bavarian marque, the championship runs to a multi-class format, leading to plenty of enthralling wheel-to-wheel moments.

Notable names to look out for over the course of the weekend from the Kumho BMW contingent includes Brad Sheehan, Darren Morgan-Owen, Ian Crisp, Kevin Denwood, Trevor and James Card, amongst many more.

Rounding out the weekend’s action will be the Radical Challenge Championship, which makes its second appearance at BARC race meeting this year.
