Pembrey plays host to memorable BARC weekend

Pembrey Circuit played host to a memorable two days of track action this past weekend (September 11/12) as the British Automobile Racing Club took centre stage in South Wales.

Headlining the weekend were two races from the Sliverlake C1 Racing Series, which has announced that it will be parting ways with the Club at the end of this year, bringing to and end a partnership that began back in 2017.

Saturday’s three-hour contest for the one-make category saw J W Bird Motorsport duo Matthew Wilson and Nick Beaumont charge to victory by more than half a minute, clocking an impressive 122 laps along the way.

After finishing as runners-up the day before, Sunday’s second three-hour race saw Danielemax Motorsport come to the fore. Max Finn and Julian Daniel produced a superlative performance to triumph, again completing 122 laps of the Welsh track.

Champions were crowned as the curtain came down on another ultra-competitive year in the Caterham Graduates Championship.

James McCall cemented his status as the driver to beat in the Sigma 135 category over the course of the year with another sensational showing. Powering his way to two more wins, McCall capped off an impressive championship-winning campaign in style. 

In the amalgamated Sigma 150 / Sigmax races, Harry Senior and Stephen Clark shared the spoils, taking a win apiece. Senior was ultimately crowned champion of the Sigmax class whilst Jamie Ellwood claimed overall honours amongst the Sigma 150 contingent.

Alex Cursely continued his fine run of form in the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup with Toyo Tires. Despite already being declared the most successful competitor in the series for 2021, Cursley powered his way to an impressive pair of wins – adding to his victory tally.

The Dunlop Mini Challenge supported by Mini Spares provided plenty of edge-of-the-seat moments throughout the weekend as well. In the Miglia class, former BTCC champion Andrew Jordan and Endaf Owens triumphed whilst Spencer Wanstall and Connor O’Brien won the Se7en races.

Rounding out the weekend’s track action were two bouts from the Welsh Sports/Saloon Car Championship. The experienced Chris Everill proved too much for the competition however, winning both races in his Ginetta G55 GT4.
