High-speed thrill ride awaits TOCA support championships at Thruxton

It won’t just be the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship that will tackle the ultimate thrill ride that is Thruxton this coming weekend (September 19/20) as several support championships will continue their 2020 campaigns as well.

In what will mark the halfway point in the season for a number of categories, the annual visit to the high-speed Hampshire venue is one that is always eagerly-anticipated, with the demands of the 2.36-mile circuit pushing drivers and their cars to the limits.

Having produced a string of edge-of-the-seat moments already this year, the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship is undoubtedly not to be missed as it stages its latest two races.

Just four points separate Bailey Voisin and Tom Lebbon at the head of the leaderboard however the likes of Georgi Dimitrov, Josh Rattican and Joel Pearson will be focused on ensuring it won’t be a two-horse race for the coveted Junior crown.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup returns to the track after missing the trip north of the border to Knockhill, and its Gus Burton that has a stranglehold on proceedings at the top of the standings.

Burton’s double at Oulton Park saw the pendulum swing his way however both Tom Hibbert and Will Burns remain within touching distance of the Century Motorsport driver, making it an unmissable three-way fight for supremacy.

Harry King has, for the most part, been in a league of his own this year in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and the Team Parker Racing driver is showing no signs of letting up as he chases down the title in his rookie season.

Winning six of the eight races run so far, the Porsche GB Scholarship victor will be hard to beat, although that is what the likes of Josh Webster, Matthew Graham and Scott McKenna will all be targeting.

After setting pulses racing at Oulton Park last month, the MINI CHALLENGE Cooper Class returns with three races scheduled to play out over the course of the weekend. Boasting a bumper entry list, expect fireworks to fly throughout the field.

Rounding out the BTCC support bill action at Thruxton will be three high-octane encounters from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Luke Browning holds the advantage in the points but the chasing pack are hot on his heels.

This weekend’s race meeting at Thruxton will be run behind closed doors, subsequently meaning that spectators will not be permitted to enter the venue. Race day coverage on Sunday will be broadcast on ITV2, starting at 11:

Knockhill provides latest stop on the calendar for TOCA support championships

It won’t just be the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship that will look to put on a show at Knockhill this coming weekend (August 29/30) as the championships that make up the TOCA support package will also be in action north of the border.

Capping off what has been a busy month with the annual trip to Scotland marking the fourth race meeting in the last five weeks, the battle for supremacy across five categories is only set to intensify around the undulating 1.27-mile layout.

Missing last weekend’s meeting at Oulton Park, the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship returns to action with Bailey Voisin in control of proceedings at the standings summit. Winning twice at Brands Hatch, Voisin has the early initiative however he will need to be at his best if he is to hold onto it across the weekend’s three encounters.

Scholarship winner Tom Lebbon and rookie Georgi Dimitrov have both triumphed this year too and neither can be discounted out from standing on the top step once gain. Throw into the mix the likes of Josh Rattican, Zak Taylor and Freddie Tomlinson and you’ll begin to see why it is anyone’s game.

The Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge made its first appearance of the season on the TOCA package last week at Oulton Park and is back for more at Knockhill.

Josh Malin, Jonny Wilkinson and James Taylor emerged as the star drivers less than a week ago and the trio will undoubtedly be in the mix this time round once again.

Not featuring since the start of the month, the latest instalment of the  MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship will be played out around the twists and turns of the Fife venue.

At Donington Park, spoils were shared between Ant Whorton-Eales, Nathan Harrison and Max Coates but the depth of talent in the grid means another three drivers could come to the fore this weekend including the likes of Dan Zelos, Lewis Brown and Kyle Reid – to name but a few.

Edge-of-the-seat thrills and spills has been a staple of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this year and arriving at Knockhill, Harry King holds the best hand in the points after three events.

Five wins from six races has been a dream start for King, this year’s Porsche GB Scholarship victor, and it will be hard to bet against him from adding to his tally. Josh Webster, Scott McKenna and Matthew Graham will lead the fight to overhaul the former GT4 Supercup champion.

Rounding out the weekend at Knockhill will be three more races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost.

TOCA support championships serve up scorching Brands Hatch spectacle

Brands Hatch’s Grand Prix layout played host to a scorching two days of all-out action this past weekend (August 8/9) as five championships from the TOCA support package served up a feast of entertainment.

Competing alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the Kent venue, sweltering conditions merely added to the high attrition throughout the second event of what is already proving to be a memorable 2020 season.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship threw up its usual mix of thrills and spills, with the duo of Bailey Voisin and Tom Lebbon taking centre stage across the weekend’s three breathless encounters.

R Racing’s Voisin proved to be the driver to beat on Saturday as he powered his way to a pair of race wins, and on Sunday he came oh so close to completing a sensational hat-trick of victories.

Pressurising race-long leader Lebbon, Voisin threw everything at the Elite Motorsport driver but ultimately narrowly missed. For Lebbon, his race three win was his first of the season and he became the first Scholarship winner to triumph in his rookie campaign since 2016.

Tom Hibbert bagged himself a double of his own in the Millers Oils GT4 Supercup, leading Gus Burton and Will Burns across the line in races one and two.

Race three belonged to former Ginetta Junior champion Adam Smalley as he claimed his maiden win in the one-make series, leading Burton and Hibbert to the chequered flag after coming under early pressure.

In the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, Harry King continued his sensational start to the season by claiming an impressive pair of wins. Pulling off identical, eye-catching moves for the lead in both encounters, the Porsche GB Scholarship victor extended his lead at the summit of the standings.

Behind, former champion Josh Webster picked up a pair of second place finishes whilst Lorcan Hanafin and Ross Wylie each scored their first podiums of the year as well.

Back by popular demand after starring at Thruxton last year, the Mini 7 Racing Club delivered three blockbuster races. Boasting a grid of more than 45 cars; wheel-to-wheel, slipstreaming action was in full force across each contest.

Aaron Smith claimed outright victory in races one and two before former BTCC champion Andrew Jordan capped off a dream debut in the series by winning race three.

Rounding out the weekend were three scintillating encounters from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, with Carlin taking a clean sweep. Zak O’Sullivan bagged a dominant double while Christian Mansell scored a breakthrough win.

TOCA support championships look to take centre stage at Brands Hatch

After taking on a starring role alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park a few days ago, the TOCA support package will be back in action this weekend (August 8/9) as Brands Hatch stages the latest stop on the calendar.

Set to tackle the 2.43-mile Grand Prix layout of the Kent venue, five championships will be looking to steal the show on what is set to be scorching weekend both on and off the track.

Home to the next generation of racing stars, the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship wasted no time in getting back into the swing of things with three enthralling races kicking off the new season.

Georgi Dimitrov enjoyed a dream debut as he took two wins and a second place to secure an early points lead and the Richardson Racing will need to maintain his form if he is to remain at the summit, with a host of contenders hot on his heels.

Joel Pearson, Tom Lebbon, Aston Millar and Bailey Voisin lead the chase for the British-Bulgarian teenager and with three races scheduled to take place over the course of the weekend, any of them as well as many others, could make their mark.

Will Burns was one who definitely made his mark at Donington Park, winning two races to take control of the Millers Oils GT4 Supercup standings. Aiming to finally clinch the title after coming close on many occasions, Burns enters the weekend’s trio of races as the man to beat – however there are many confident that they can do just that.

Gus Burton scored victory on his debut last time out whilst Tom Hibbert, Adam Smalley and Reece Somerfield all showed that they have the pace to mix it at the front as well.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB boasts a bumper entry list in 2020 and it looks like it will be as competitive as ever in the fastest one-make series in the UK.

Team Parker Racing’s Harry King and Josh Webster took a win apiece under the flightpath of East Midlands airport and the duo look set to renew their battle in the bid to gain the upper hand.

Esmee Hawkey, Scott McKenna and Ross Wyle are a handful of other drivers that will be worth keeping an eye as they aim to take the fight to the early pace setters.

Having garnered plenty of praise when it made a one-off appearance at Thruxton last year, the Dunlop Mini Challenges supported by Mini Spares returns with a mammoth of grid of ‘old school’ Mini machines.

Renowned for slipstreaming one another and multiple cars going wheel-to-wheel, thrills and spills are all-but guaranteed in the series. Featuring on the mammoth entry list too is 2013 BTCC champion Andrew Jordan, who had originally been set to compete in Britain’s premier motorsport category before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

Rounding out the weekend’s on-track entertainment will be three races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Three drivers from three different teams reigned supreme at the opener and the big question now is whether that run can continue.

To view more information on this weekend such as links to live timing and the timetable, click here.

Like Donington Park, this weekend’s event at Brands Hatch will be run behind closed doors and with spectators not permitted to attend. ITV4’s live coverage on Sunday will begin at 10:20.

Entertainment aplenty as TOCA support championships roar into life at Donington Park

Donington Park played host to a memorable two days of track action on the TOCA support package this past weekend (August 1/2) with five championships kicking off their 2020 campaigns in blockbuster fashion.

Taking centre stage at the Leicestershire venue alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship behind closed doors, edge-of-the-seat entertainment ran throughout each race – setting the scene for what is set to be an enthralling season.

Making its first appearance on the BTCC support bill was the MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship and it didn’t disappoint. Replacing the Renault UK Clio Cup, the popular one-make series proved to be a smash-hit as a 30-car grid duked it out across three races.

Ant Whorton-Eales underlined his credentials as a title contender as he triumphed in race one ahead of Nathan Harrison and Lewis Brown before Harrison himself struck back with a win of his own in race two.

Max Coates, a familiar name to fans of the BTCC package, then mad it three different winners from three races as he resisted the challenge of Kyle Reid to emerge victorious.

The latest crop of teenage superstars that make up the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship took on a starring role with rookie Georgi Dimitrov enjoying a stellar debut, taking two wins and a second place.

Spearheading Richardson Racing’s line-up, the British-Bulgarian racer lost out to Bailey Voisin in a frenetic opener before going on to be perfection personified for the remainder of the meeting, winning races two and three.

Will Burns also enjoyed a near-perfect weekend in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup as he scooped a brace of race wins and a second place. Bidding to finally capture the crown that has so far eluded him, the former vice-champion was in unstoppable form as he led Gus Burton and Tom Hibbert in races one and two.

Burns’ hopes of completing a clean sweep however were ended by Burton in race three, who capped off a dream GT4 Supercup debut to claim a maiden win in the single-make category.

In the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, Josh Webster and Harry King took a win apiece to open their 2020 accounts. King had led a majority of race one before being passed Webster whilst Esmee Hawkey made it a Team Parker Racing 1-2-3.

Race two saw no mistake from Porsche GB Scholarship winner King however as he produced a scintillating lights-to-flag drive to score victory ahead of Scott McKenna and Webster.

Rounding out the weekend were three ultra-competitive races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost where Alex Connor, Zak O’Sullivan and James Hedley shared the spoils.

In the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup, a mix of championship returnees and talented newcomers will come together for what should be blockbuster triple-header under the flightpath of East Midlands airport.

Will Burns and Tom Hibbert, title contenders in 2019, lead the entry list and will be hard to bet against however the likes of Adam Smalley, Tom Emson, Gus Burton and Fin Green shouldn’t be counted out either.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB, the fastest and most successful single marque GT championship in the UK, has become renowned for producing edge-of-the-seat entertainment down the years and 2020 should be no different.

Boasting an entry list that includes the likes of Harry King, Josh Webster, Scott McKenna, Ryan Ratcliffe and Esmee Hawkey, the Carrera Cup GB’s two encounters shouldn’t be missed.

One new addition to the TOCA support bill this year comes in the shape of the MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship, which replaces the outgoing Renault UK Clio Cup. Armed with a 30-car grid and equal machinery, the one-make tin top series has proven to smash-hit in recent years.

Phil Cooper leads list of special award winners at BARC Championship Awards Evening

Legends Cars National Championship Co-ordinator Phil Cooper was the headline recipient of the special awards that were handed out at the BARC’s annual Championship Awards Evening this past Saturday (February 8th). 

Whilst champions of 2019 took centre stage during the evening, a handful of secret awards were presented to unsuspecting winners at the end of the night.

Cooper emerged as one of those victors as he was honoured for his role in the Legends Cars National Championship over the past 25 years. After ending a career in the music business, Cooper brought the series to the UK and has been at the helm whilst it has flourished ever since.

Picking up The Gerry Marshall Trophy, Cooper fitted the bill in sharing the same eagerness and philosophy for motorsport that Gerry once did.

“That was quite the surprise, I had no idea,” Cooper said. “I’ve been invited to this event for a number of years and don’t always attend but the team at the BARC were rather quite insistent I attend as Miles was coming and his car was on display as well.

“I thought I would be handing over Miles’ award so when that didn’t happen I thought that was it. Then Alan Hyde read my name out and it was just complete shock. I’m very grateful and thankful for receiving this accolade.

“Last year was the 25th Anniversary of the Legends Cars National Championship and I’m very proud of what we have been able to achieve. When I finished working in the music business I thought that I might potter around in motor racing for a little while but here we still are.”

After powering his way to the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship crown last year, James Hedley was a worthy winner of The Peter Collins Trophy.

Awarded to the most promising newcomer competing in a BARC championship, the teenage sensation produced a superlative performance to become the latest champion of the much-loved TOCA series.

Commenting on accolade, Hedley said: “I was quite shocked when Alan Hyde read out my name, I didn’t know too much about the award. Now that I’ve been able to look through all of the names on the trophy and all of the previous winners I’m truly honoured.

“I’ve been up against some really tough, naturally talented drivers so it is nice to see that people are recognising all of the hard work that is being put together. This whole evening has been fantastic and this award will be one I’ll treasure for a long time.”

Garrie Whittaker’s unbeaten season in the Kumho BMW Championship didn’t go unnoticed either as he scooped The Presidents Cup.

Bestowed upon the most successful driver competing under international level within the BARC, Whittaker added his name to the famous trophy once again after previously winning it. His 20-race clean sweep made him the standout contender for the coveted trophy.

“I’m not usually lost for words but winning The Presidents Cup for a third time has pretty much left me speechless,” Whittaker said following the prize giving.

“I’ve won it twice before and I knew that I had had a good year but you never really expect to be awarded, not least for a third time. Picking up my championship trophy from Colin [Turkington] was really great however this accolade is something I’m really proud of.

“To be handed an award that people have decided you deserve based on your performances over the course of the season is just the icing on the cake.”

Elsewhere, Pam and Steve Green were handed the Sir Clive Bossom Trophy after completing the most volunteering days over the course of the season.

Nick Allison meanwhile picked up the BARC Marshal of the Year for a second time.

BARC signs off 2019 season in spectacular style at Brands Hatch

The British Automobile Racing Club set pulses racing for one final time in 2019 this past weekend (November 9/10) as it brought the curtain down on a memorable year of track action at Brands Hatch, with several championships taking centre centre.

In what has been another action-packed season of top-draw motorsport from the Club’s categories, the famous Kent venue provided a fitting backdrop to end a pulsating campaign which began back in March.

Going wheel-to-wheel into the night, the Dunlop Endurance Championship had fans on the captivated from start-to-finish as a bumper grid of eye-catching cars went wheel-to-wheel around the challenging Indy circuit.

On its eagerly-anticipated debut, the Brabham B62 was a success straight out of the blocks as David Brabham and Will Powell stormed to victory in the opening encounter of the weekend. Mechanical issues would unfortunately cost them a chance of repeating the feat in race two.

Instead, spoils fell the way of Mike Moss and Ollie Hancock in their BMW 1M – the pair exerting their dominance to lap almost the entire field and take the chequered flag by more than 30 seconds in the end.

James Taylor took a clean sweep of victories to be crowned the Ginetta Junior Winters Series champion. Heading an ultra-competitive entry list of teenage racers, Taylor asserted his dominance across both days to lift the coveted title.

Powering his way to pole position on Saturday, the Elite Motorsport driver tallied a pair of race wins to hold the overnight lead in the points. On Sunday, two more wins were added to his record, guaranteeing him the highly sought after crown.

There were similar levels of dominance in the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup too as Wayne Rockett was perfection personified, taking a brace of wins. Having won ten of the 12 races that had been staged heading into the weekend, Rockett lived up to his mantel of being the driver to beat.

Setting an impressive time during qualifying, the multiple race-winner cemented his status as the most successful driver in the series for 2019 with a pair of spellbinding performances.

The Distrigo Parts Distribution Citroen C1 Challenge delivered two hours of enthralling action on Sunday, culminating in the MSAR Old Hat Motorsport duo of Daniel Bruce and Callum Hutchings taking victory by little over nine seconds.

Niall Bradley and Rod Birley were the winners of the weekend’s two CMMC Tin Tops & Amusetime Production Saloons races whilst Colin Peacock rounded the list of race winners, claiming a sensational hat-trick in the Dunlop Mini Se7en & Mini Miglia Championship.

BARC to bring the curtain down on 2019 season at Brands Hatch

The British Automobile Racing Club is set to race into the night and into the off-season at Brands Hatch this weekend (November 9/10) as the famous Kent venue plays host to the final race meeting of 2019.

In what has been another blockbuster year for the Club – which has seen countless events at circuits around the country – the curtain will fall on the 2019 campaign in what is being predicted to be enthralling style.

Taking centre stage with two long-distance races around the Indy layout will be the Dunlop Endurance Championship. With the overall title still to be settled, the Ferrari 488 Challenge duo of Paul Bailey and Andy Schulz find themselves in the pound seat and on the cusp of the glory.

However, before they can savour the spoils of a season-long title challenge, the pair will have to fend off the advances of the chasing pack across two enthralling encounters that will continue into darkness.

Following what has been a historic year, the Distrigo Parts Distribution Citroen C1 Challenge will draw to a close for another year with a bumper entry list revved up for its two-hour finale.

After setting a new British record at Silverstone for the largest-ever starting grid back in April, the popular one-make series has proven to be a smash-hit once again – with more excitement destined to play out over the course of the weekend.

Wayne Rockett has been the cream of the crop in the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup this year, winning ten of the 12 scheduled races so far, and he is looking to add two more to his tally during the weekend.

Enjoying another action-packed year, an ultra-competitive grid has gone wheel-to-wheel from the get-go and expect a host of drivers to challenge Rockett all the way to the final lap of the season.

Ginetta will end its season on a high with its Junior Winter Series; the annual end-of-season spectacular that has become renowned as a proving ground for the stars of the following season.

With the last seven Winter Series champions having gone on to finish in the top two in the main championship the next year, the competition is fierce and this year’s entry list boasts a host of potential winners.

Amongst those to look out for include James Taylor, Josh Rattican, Joel Pearson, Bailey Voisin, Aston Millar and Ben Kasperczak – in addition to a host of others.

Rounding out the weekend’s on-track entertainment will be races from the Dunlop Winter Mini Challenge supported by Mini Spares and a string of Open Tin Top encounters.
