RAISING the curtain on a new motorsport season at Rockingham, the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) returns to the Northamptonshire circuit this weekend (April 14/15).
Advance tickets are priced at just £12 per day and admission for children aged 15 and under is FREE ensuring families can enjoy the venue’s first British Club motor racing action of the season at an affordable price.
Seven BARC championships will be descending on the venue for the two-day event, some making first appearances of 2018. All the action is set to take place on the International Super Sports Car Circuit, and in addition to practice and qualifying, there will be 16 races.
The BARC Saloon Series makes its debut with a diverse range of tin top machines from the Classic VW and VTEC Challenge. While Michelin Clio Cup Series, Lancaster Insurance MG Owners Club and Mighty MINI Championships make a welcome return to the circuit.
Youngsters from the Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC) and Renault UK Clio Cup Junior will also be on hand to give spectators a glimpse of the next generation of racers. Both series will have practice and qualifying sessions on Saturday followed by two races apiece on Sunday.
In addition to the BARC championships, Saturday’s action is set to be pulsating with the iconic machines of Britcar’s Dunlop Endurance Championship making their first appearance of 2018. The morning practice and qualifying sessions will be followed by a 50-minute sprint and two-hour endurance race.
As always at Rockingham all tickets include access to a grandstand seat offering panoramic views of the entire circuit, the pit garage roof and race paddock, which means there are no hidden costs.
