New saloon series launched by BARC
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.”
