Donington Park delight for several BARC championships

Donington Park played host to an unmissable two days of British Automobile Racing Club track action this past weekend (October 23/24) in what were autumnal conditions. 

The Britcar Endurance Championship brought the curtain down on its season with thrilling finales for both the Endurance and Trophy classes. 

In the Endurance category, YouTuber turned racer Jimmy Broadbent capped off his maiden season racing in emphatic fashion as he, alongside Gordie Mutch, powered his way to victory in both races.

Praga Championship glory ultimately fell to Richard Wells, Alex Kapadia & Tim Gray whilst Dave Scaramanga and Will Powell led the way in the Endurance standings. 

The Trophy class saw SVG Motorsport’s Mark Lee guide his Ginetta G56A to victory in race one before the Woodrow Motorsport duo of Simon Baker and Ollie Reuben claimed a win of their own.

Continuing to go from strength-to-strength, the Sports Prototype Cup capped off a spectacular year in style with a pair of pulsating races. Ross Kaiser and Richard Webb took centre stage to share the spoils, taking a win apiece, however they weren’t the only drivers of interest.

Freddie Hunt and Matias Launda, sons of former Formula 1 champions and one-time title protagonists James Hunt and Niki Lauda, were also in action in the Revolution Trophy.

Charlie Hand put himself out of reach in the Junior Saloon Car Championship. Having proven himself to be the benchmark from the get-go, the Westboure Motorsport driver enjoyed another superlative showing to secure an unassailable points lead.

Despite narrowly missing out on pole position, the third-year driver went on to reign supreme in race one as he claimed victory before chief rival Harvey Caton struck back with a win of his own. 

The Classic 2CV Racing Club saw two new faces on the top step of the podium in the absence of serial winner Pete Sparrow. David O’Keeffe ruled the roost in the opener before Luca Proietti triumphed in race two. 

Also in action during the weekend was the all-action Mini 7 Racing Club. Connor O’Brien and Mike Jordan claimed a win each in the Se7en class whilst Aaron Smith was victorious in the only Miglia contest to play out. 

Rounding out the track entertainment were a number of races from the rapid British Superkart Racing Club. With an incredible grid of more than 50 entrants, the action proved to be captivating as Sam Moss and Lee Harpham scored wins.
