The British Automobile Racing Club heads to Oulton Park this coming Saturday (June 12) for an action-packed race day which is set to be headlined by a trio of championships.
Organised and run by the Club’s North West Centre, the one-day meeting marks the second visit to the Cheshire venue by the BARC this year – the first having lifted the curtain on the 2021 season back in April.
With the current campaign continuing to gather momentum and summer now in full force, the return of spectators is set to provide even more excitement and atmosphere too, whilst our live TV cameras will be in attendance as well.
Having starred at Silverstone and Snetterton in varying weather conditions, the Britcar Endurance Championship arrives at Oulton Park ready to take centre stage with a pair of one-hour races from its Endurance category.
So far it has been a blockbuster campaign for the series with a number of standout performances, no less from current points leaders Jamie Stanley and John Seale in the JMH Lamborghini Huracan. Keen to extend their advantage this weekend, the pairing enter the event as the favourites however the competition is set to be fierce.
Elsewhere, the Praga class has proven to be a smash-hit so far and it too will continue on Saturday with the likes of Richard Morris, Abbie Eaton, Gordie Mutch, Charlie Martin, Jem Hepworth and Jimmy Broadbent all in the mix towards the front of the field.
The CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship, the North West Centre’s flagship category, kicked off its season at Oulton Park a few months ago and it proved that the appetite to go racing is greater than ever.
Boasting an ultra-competitive entry list, the multi-class series returns this weekend for a single content. Notable names to keep a close eye on include former champion Paul Rose, current title holder Jamie Cryer and the likes of Paul Woolfitt, Paul Dobson, Ric Wood, Graeme Smith and Gary Warburton.
Renowned for serving up enthralling wheel-to-wheel entertainment, the Mighty Minis Championship are back in action – with its two classes revved up for a pair of pulsating encounters.
In the Super Mighty Minis category, variety has been the spice of life at the sharp end of the field with three different winners from four races. Neven Kirkpatrick, Stuart Coombs and Ian Slark have all stood on the top step of the podium, the latter twice, and all three will be keen to do so once again here.
With the smallest of margins more often than not deciding the podiums positions, the aforementioned trio will need to be on top form as there are a host of contenders all hot on their heels and itching to claim silverware of their own.
Elsewhere, the less powerful Mighty Mini class has been equally as frenetic so far this year. Growing in number as each round passes, the category has delivered plenty of head-turning performances already – not least from Dan Heywood who is unbeaten so far.
Rounding out the day’s track action and not to be upstaged will be a pair of races from the hugely popular Radical Summer Cup.
