New sa­loon series launched by BARC

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

A new series which is open to al­most any type of sa­loon will launch this sea­son and hold races at six venues across the UK.

The Bri­tish Au­to­mo­bile Rac­ing Club’s Saloons Series will wel­come cars from the Clas­sic VW Cup and Honda VTEC series af­ter both were dropped by the Clas­sic Touring Car Club for 2018.

Other cars will then be split ac­cord­ingly based on per­for­mance into the two groups for the six-race cal­en­dar.

Tracks in­clude Rock­ing­ham, Brands Hatch, Pem­brey, Snet­ter­ton, Cad­well Park and Oul­ton Park.

One of the or­gan­is­ers of the series, Andy John­son, said: “We just want peo­ple to come along and have some fun, have as close rac­ing as pos­si­ble but af­ter the driv­ers can shake each other’s hands. Let’s not have points and strict rules.

“We would love to see 15 to 20 reg­u­lars. We can achieve that.”
