Dave Beecroft, the man behind the successful Junior Saloon Car Championship, has concluded a deal to take over the running of the Track Attack Race Club from Steve Vince, who has run the club since its inception.
The Club currently incorporates the 206 Gti Cup, Deutsche Marque Cup, Nippon Challenge, Tricolore Trophy and TT Trophy. The multi-marque grid comprised 29 cars at Croft this past weekend (September 17/18).
Dave Beecroft said: “Steve Vince has done an amazing job for so many years and has earned a well-deserved retirement. We have been in discussions for a long time about taking this on, and I am delighted that from today that responsibility now lies with us.
“We will build on the great platform that Steve has created and look to grow it further. We also see it as a fantastic opportunity for some of our Junior racers from the JSCC to move into senior racing.”
Beecroft also confirmed that Track Attack will run at BARC events from 2023.
Mark Turner, BARC Sporting Manager, added: “We have a long-standing relationship with Dave Beecroft and the JSCC and have worked together to make that championship the leading junior series in the country.
“We look forward to welcoming the cars, drivers and teams on the Track Attack grid to the BARC next year and working with them to take their club forward.”
