The British Automobile Racing Club basked in the North Yorkshire sunshine this past weekend (May 20/21) as Caterham Motorsport’s roster of championships took centre stage at Croft Circuit for the latest rounds of their 2023 season.
Organised and run by the Club’s North Western Centre, the two-day meeting produced an unmissable feast of captivating wheel-to-wheel action as a number of drivers ramped up their pursuits of being crowned champion later this year.
The Adrian Flux Insurance Caterham Academy – which is geared towards those drivers that are embarking on their first steps in the sport – produced two memorable contests from its White and Green categories.
Daniel Neale delivered a masterful drive at the front of the ‘White’ race to pip Istvan Demes to the chequered flag by a little over half a second whilst Jonathan Emery reigned supreme to claim victory in the ‘Green’ bout.
In the Motul Caterham Seven 310R Championship, Jack Sales proved to be in a league of his own at times as he produced a virtuous display which culminated in a hat-trick of race wins.
Charlie Lower and Freddie Chiddicks were the cream of the crop in the Mission Motorsport Caterham Seven 270R Championship as they shared the spoils. From the minute they arrived at the venue there was very little split to them, with Lower getting the better of Chiddicks in races one and two before the latter struck back in race three.
Over in the Vertex Caterham Roadsport Championship, there was further dominance as Ben Timmons remained the one true constant – mainly out front – as he chalked up an impressive brace of wins.
Lewis Thompson meanwhile maintained his strong start to the Avon Tyres Caterham Seven UK Championship campaign as he powered his way to a trio of mesmerising victories.
Rounding out the weekend’s track action were two races from the Scottish Mini Cooper Cup, which were won by Jamie Blake and Craig Blake, and two Z Cars/Production GTi Championships contests; where Simon Vercoe and Ryan Sayer triumphed.
