The British Automobile Racing Club is set for a bank holiday Monday (May 28) to remember as the Classic Touring Car Racing Club and Hyundai Coupe Cup head to Mallory Park for a flat-out day’s reaction.
Making it’s customary visit to the popular Leicestershire circuit, the two categories are set for a bumper day of action as they seek to dazzle those in attendance.
In what is the third meeting of the season for the championship, Classic Touring Cars will be once again out to steal the show as they stage a scheduled eight races in total.
Amalgamating different classes together, a diverse range of machinery will go wheel-to-wheel, all of which span countless decades.
With everything from iconic Mini Cooper’s and Ford Escort’s, all the way up to modern vehicles such as Renault Clio’s there will be something for everyone when the action gets underway.
Notable names to look out for during the day include multiple champion Stephen Primett, Dale Gent, Roger Stanford, James Wilson and Steve Barden, as well as a host more too.
Having continued to go from strength-to-strength in recent years, the Hyundai Coupe Cup is enjoying a period of rude health – and it appears that it is showing no signs of letting up either.
Coming from humble beginnings to benefitting from having its own grid, the series has become one of the most sought after within the BARC to compete in; with its low-cost, tin top thrills proving to be part of its charm.
Arriving at Mallory Park off the back of events at Silverstone, Pembrey and Snetterton, the Coupe Cup is set to shine on bank holiday Monday alongside the CTCRC.
So far this season the narrative has been Misty Racing’s Steve Kite asserting his dominance, winning countless races already. Whilst points are not on offer, bragging rights of who can score the most wins over the course of the season is high on the agenda of many, and Kite is establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with.
Whilst Kite will be looking to extend his winning run, the likes of Wayne Rockett, who is the only man to beat Kite to the top step this year, along with Alex Cursley, Neale Hurran and Nick Moore will all be eyeing silverware too.
Two 20-minute encounters from the Coupe Cup category will no doubt set pulses racing.
