Breaking new ground by debuting in 2020, BARC Red is an innovative set of races for Open Sports/Saloon cars.
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.
This format guarantees that everyone will be racing against those doing similar lap times, irrespective of the car they are driving, leading to much closer competition.
