Run by the British Automobile Racing Club’s North West Centre, the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship is a cost-effective category that is open to all manner of cars regardless of their make, model and power.
Started in 1984 as a special GT championship with a small core of regular enthusiasts entering races, the series has grown into a successful and stable championship which boasts grid of more than 30 cars on an almost regular basis at each event every year.
To be eligible to compete in the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship cars must have been originally designed for road use and are then split into two basic categories, Special and Modified.
These two categories are further divided into three classes based on engine size, the splits being at 1600cc and 2500cc in both cases. Points are awarded within each class and the overall champion each year is the driver with the most points.
The Ginetta GT Academy is a new championship launched that in 2021 and has since gone from strength to strength, offering entry level racing for drivers of all experience levels.
Replacing the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club, the one-make category uses the popular GT4 machine as its cars of choice with the field split between experienced drivers and a ‘Rookie’ Class.
The GT Academy’s inaugural season will see it feature on the British GT Championship support package on four occasions before capping off the year alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
New for 2023, the Ginetta GT Championship is the latest series to be introduced by the Yorkshire manufacturer and it consists of two main classes; GT Pro and GT5.
Due to the unwavering success of the Ginetta GT Academy, Ginetta will now offer both a new car and championship to take drivers to the next level of competition, full details of which will be announced soon.
Competing exclusively on the support bill of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship, the series will comprise of eight events over the course of the 2023 campaign.
