The British Automobile Racing Club is set to race into the night and into the off-season at Brands Hatch this weekend (November 9/10) as the famous Kent venue plays host to the final race meeting of 2019.
In what has been another blockbuster year for the Club – which has seen countless events at circuits around the country – the curtain will fall on the 2019 campaign in what is being predicted to be enthralling style.
Taking centre stage with two long-distance races around the Indy layout will be the Dunlop Endurance Championship. With the overall title still to be settled, the Ferrari 488 Challenge duo of Paul Bailey and Andy Schulz find themselves in the pound seat and on the cusp of the glory.
However, before they can savour the spoils of a season-long title challenge, the pair will have to fend off the advances of the chasing pack across two enthralling encounters that will continue into darkness.
Following what has been a historic year, the Distrigo Parts Distribution Citroen C1 Challenge will draw to a close for another year with a bumper entry list revved up for its two-hour finale.
After setting a new British record at Silverstone for the largest-ever starting grid back in April, the popular one-make series has proven to be a smash-hit once again – with more excitement destined to play out over the course of the weekend.
Wayne Rockett has been the cream of the crop in the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup this year, winning ten of the 12 scheduled races so far, and he is looking to add two more to his tally during the weekend.
Enjoying another action-packed year, an ultra-competitive grid has gone wheel-to-wheel from the get-go and expect a host of drivers to challenge Rockett all the way to the final lap of the season.
Ginetta will end its season on a high with its Junior Winter Series; the annual end-of-season spectacular that has become renowned as a proving ground for the stars of the following season.
With the last seven Winter Series champions having gone on to finish in the top two in the main championship the next year, the competition is fierce and this year’s entry list boasts a host of potential winners.
Amongst those to look out for include James Taylor, Josh Rattican, Joel Pearson, Bailey Voisin, Aston Millar and Ben Kasperczak – in addition to a host of others.
Rounding out the weekend’s on-track entertainment will be races from the Dunlop Winter Mini Challenge supported by Mini Spares and a string of Open Tin Top encounters.
