Classic Touring Car Racing Club closes out season at Mallory Park

The Classic Touring Car Racing Club brought the curtain down on its 2021 season in style this past Sunday (October 17) with an action-packed race day at Mallory Park. 

Producing edge-of-the-seat thrills throughout what has been a captivating campaign, a mammoth array of tin top machines flocked to the picturesque Leicestershire venue to entertain those lining the spectator bankings.

In the Pre ’66 Touring Car category, being behind the wheel of Ford was seemingly the way to go as victories were shared between two iconic models. Robyn Slater powered his Anglia to the chequered flag in race one before Alan Greenhalgh came to the fore in his Flacon to triumph in race two.

Spoils were also shared in the Pre ’83 Touring Car ranks. Thomas Harvey pipped Stephen Primett to victory in the opener before the latter struck back a few hours later, winning in his Ford Escort MkII.

The amalgamated Pre ’93 and Pre ’03 Touring Car contests boasted a bumper entry list and with it an unmissable opening race as just over half a second separated the top two, with Andrew Neal getting the better of James Everard. 

Race two saw Everard finish in second place once again, although this time it was to Gary Prebble and by the slightly larger margin of more than six seconds. 

Jason West couldn’t be bettered in the combined Classic Thunder and Blue Oval Saloon Series bouts. At the wheel of his BMW M3 E46, West fended off the charging Jason Hughes to win race one before stretching his legs in race two to complete a clean sweep. 

Capping off the day’s action were a pair of races from the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, which was concluding its maiden season alongside the CTCRC. Tom Robinson ultimately proved too much for the opposition as he charged to back-to-back wins in his XJR6.

Five BARC championships set for Snetterton showdown

The British Automobile Racing Club travels to Snetterton this coming weekend (September 18/19) for two days of track action that has all the hallmarks of having those in attendance on the edge of their seats from start-to-finish.

As the battle for supremacy in the race for titles begins to ramp, the Norfolk venue is set to stage no less than 24 races over the course of Saturday and Sunday – and none are worth missing.

Undoubtedly headlining the action will be five colossal contests from the five-tonne, 1000bhp behemoths of the British Truck Racing Championship. In what has already proven to be a captivating season, the race for top spot in both Division’s 1 and 2 is taking shape.

David Jenkins leads the way in the Division 1 ranks, albeit by a slender six-point margin. Boasting a wealth of experience, the former champion knows what it takes to win a championship and he will need to draw on all of it if he is to fend off the likes of Martin Gibson and reigning title holder Ryan Smith.

Over in Division 2 it is beginning to become a two-horse race for championship honours. Just 14 points split Craig Reid and Steven Powell as it stands, with the pendulum likely poised to swing to either one of them.

The Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres has once again served up a feast of entertainment this year and heading to Snetterton, Miles Rudman is in the box seat to regain his crown.

After winning five out of the six races at Donington Park last month, Rudman has built ups healthy lead at the standings summit. However, he’ll need to continue his fine run of form if he’s to withstand the challenge from the likes of Will Gibson, John Mickel and Jack Parker, to name but a few.

Snetterton is the latest destination for the Pickup Truck Racing Championship, with two races scheduled to play out around the challenging 2.99-mile circuit. George Turiccki has proven to be the benchmark this season so far and it’s expected he will be in the mix again.

Fans will take a trip down memory lane during the weekend as well thanks to the Classic Touring Car Racing Club. Showcasing the very best tin tops from yesteryear, a stunning eight races will take place for the CTCRC

The Lancaster Insurance MG Owners Club Championship will also be there and looking to steal the show as it embarks on the penultimate event of its 2021 season. Taking fans on a spirited trip down memory lane, the single-manufacturer series showcases some of the very best models to boast the MG badge.

Notable names to look out for over the course of Saturday’s two bouts include Steve McDermid, Jim Baynam, David Amphlett and Chris Pollard, amongst many more.

Capping off the weekend’s action alongside the BARC programme will be two races from the Snetterton Saloons.

Donington Park delivers scorching BARC bank holiday spectacular

Donington Park played host to a blockbuster day of tin top thrills this past Bank Holiday Monday (May 31) as the Classic Touring Car Racing Club, Kumho BMW Championship and Mighty Minis Championship headlined the British Automobile Racing Club’s one-day meeting.

Bathed in bright sunshine and competing in front of spectators for the first time this year, the Leicestershire venue provided the perfect backdrop for an unmissable day of track action.

Taking centre stage as they rolled back the years under the flight path of East Midlands airport was the Classic Touring Car Racing Club, who produced no less than eight captivating contests.

Joe Ferguson and Tom Bell shared the spoils in the Pre ’66 Touring Cars category whilst the amalgamated Pre ‘8 Touring Cars and Jaguar Enthusiasts Club races saw James Ramm reign supreme, winning twice in his Jaguar XJS.

AJ Owen and Gary Prebble proved to be the class of the field in the Pre ’93 and Pre ’03 Touring Car bouts, going head-to-head in both. Prebble would get the better of Owen in the opening race before the latter struck back in race two, tallying his latest win of the season.

The Classic/Historic Thunder Saloons and Blue Oval Saloon Series brought the curtain down on the CTCRC action and like the others, they too enjoyed a pair of full-throttle races. Andrew Wilson piloted his Holden Monaro to victory in the opener before Matty Evans struck back in race two.

Renowned for producing close racing, the Mighty Minis Championship had fans on the edge of their seats as they delivered two enthralling contests. Dancing their way around the flowing 1.97-mile National circuit, the Mini contingent showcased what they are all about in front of an appreciative crowd.

Stuart Coombs struck first as he converted his second row start into what can be deemed as a commanding victory in the series, crossing the line more than three seconds ahead of his nearest challenger.

Race two would see an almighty scrap for the win take place with the top four covered by less than a second at the flag. Underlining his credentials as defending Super Mighty Mini champion, Ian Slark held off the battling Coombs, Steven Rideout and Alex Comis to prevail.

Capping off the days action were two races from the Kumho BMW Championship, who were making their first appearance of 2021. Home to all manner of machinery that carries the iconic BMW badge, the single-manufacturer series lifted the curtain on a brand new season in sensational style.

Brad Sheeham proved to be the driver to beat in the opening encounter as he powered his M3 E46 from second on the grid to victory, narrowly pipping the charging Jason West.

Having been forced to retire from race one, Michael Pensavalle served up an overtaking masterclass in race two to win. Starting from 17th, the M3 E46 racer wasted no time in making progress and by lap ten found himself at the front of the field, where he would remain until the chequered flag was waved.

BARC revved up for bank holiday tin top thriller at Donington Park

The British Automobile Racing Club is gearing up for a bank holiday race day that should set pulses racing this coming Monday (May 31) as a trio of championships head to Donington Park.

In what is set to be the first of several visits to the Leicestershire venue over the course of the 2021 season by the Club, Monday’s meeting will not only see spectators make a welcome return but will also see TV cameras in attendance for our latest live stream spectacle.

Headlining the day will be no less than eight races from the Classic Touring Car Racing Club. Serving up a feast of entertainment at Silverstone last month, the tin tops from yesteryear will write the latest chapter in their campaign as they showcase some of the most iconic saloons from past decades.

Taking centre stage under the flightpath of East Midlands airport will be from the Pre ’66 Classic Saloon & Historic Touring Cars, Shell Oils Pre ’83 Touring Cars, Laser Tools Pre ’93 Touring Cars, Simply Serviced Pre ’03 Touring Cars, Blue Oval Saloon Series, Edmundson Electrical Classic/Historic Thunder Saloons and Jaguar Enthusiasts Club Saloon & GT Championship.

Notable names to look over the course of the day include Peter Smith, Richard Wood, AJ Owen, Ashley Shelswell, Ray West, Tom Robinson and David Howard, to name but a few.

The Mighty Minis Championship is renowned for producing blockbuster wheel-to-wheel entertainment and Monday should be no different as the pocket rockets continue their season.

Kicking their season off at Cadwell Park last month with two pulsating encounters, the Super Mighty Mini class saw old foes Neven Kirkpatrick and reigning champion Ian Slark renew their battle for supremacy as they each tallied a win apiece.

Both Kirkpatrick and Slark will undoubtedly be favourites to be in the mix for supremacy however they won’t be the only drivers to keep an eye on. David Kirkpatrick, Steve Rideout, Stuart Coombs, Greg Jenkins and Alex Comis are just a number of contenders that have experience of running at the sharp end of the grid and none of them can be discounted from making their mark.

Elsewhere, the opener of the Mighty Mini class at Cadwell Park saw Dan Heywood turn heads as he notched an impressive brace of race wins. Having set his stall out as the driver to beat, Heywood will undoubtedly be one to watch although the competition at the top is set to be fierce.

Rounding out the track action will be a pair of races from the Kumho BMW Championship. Home to all manner of machinery that carries the iconic BMW badge, the single-manufacturer series lifts the curtain on a brand new season boasting a bumper multi-class grid.

Having seen a closely-fought 2020 campaign unfold, this year looks to have the makings of another great tussle with regular front runners James Card, Jas Sapra and Darren Morgan-Owen taking on a number of very quick newcomers, including Brad Sheehan, Mike Pensavalle and Bryan Bransom in the fight to be crowned champions.
