Snetterton awaits quartet of BARC championships

As the 2021 season begins to gather momentum, the British Automobile Racing Club descends on Snetterton this weekend (May 8/9) for a blockbuster two days of track action that isn’t to be missed.

Despite current government guidelines meaning that spectators won’t be permitted to watch trackside, our Facebook and YouTube pages will be live streaming every lap to ensure that nobody misses a second of the enthralling entertainment that will undoubtedly be produced.

Having been one of the stars of the show at Silverstone last month, the Britcar Endurance Championship continues its season with two races apiece for its Endurance and Trophy classes.

Showcasing a wide variety of machinery, each category saw bumper entry lists as it lifted the curtain at the Home of British Motor Racing and that theme is set to continue in Norfolk. Cars from Lamborghini, Ferrari, Praga, Aston Martin and Porsche will all be in action, with stars such as Abbie Eaton, Jem Hepworth and YouTube ace Jimmy Broadbent being just a few of the names that are competing.

The Caterham Graduates Championship currently boasts one of the biggest grids in UK motorsport, underlining that the appetite to going racing has never been greater as it stands. Coming off the back of a sensational opener at Oulton Park, the one-make series will look to take centre stage with its four timetabled races.

Notable front-running contenders to look out for over the course of both days include Simon Shaw, Harry Senior, Jamie Ellwood, James McCall and Ben Winrow, to name but a few.

Another series that is renowned for producing full-throttle thrills is the Junior Saloon Car Championship. Home to the next generation of motorsport stars, the tin top series has been the ultimate proving ground for those starting out and this years grid looks to be as close as ever.

Charlie Hand came close to the title last year and he has made a flying start this time around to lead the points at this early stage. However, the competition is fierce and the likes of Aaron Walker, Ruben Hage and Deagan Fairclough, amongst many more, will be keen to close the gap during the weekend’s two races.

The Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup with Toyo Tires enjoyed a memorable start to the year at Cadwell Park and it looks set to serve up more thrills and spills around the challenging 2.99-mile 300 layout.

Providing a low-cost method of going motor racing, the one-make series has proven to be a smash-hit over recent seasons and 2021 looks to be no different. Alex Cursely and Alistair Dendy shared the spoils last time out and both will be keen to stand on the top step come the end of the single 30-minute encounter that is scheduled to play out.

Also on the billing during the weekend will be contests from the Mini 7 Racing Club and British Superkarts Racing Club.

You can watch all of the action across both days at Snetterton via our live streams on both YouTube and Facebook.
