BMWS merged into single grid
The 750 Motor Club’s
M3 Cup and BMW 330 Challenge categories will be amalgamated into the BMW Car Club Racing Championship for 2019.
The two series shared a grid last year but still struggled to get more than 15 entries combined. Now the club has decided that rather than running dedicated championships for these cars, they can move to the popular BMW Car Club series. This has achieved championship status for its second season this year and the regulations have been written to make sure cars from the other categories can easily be accommodated.
“We’re not going to run M3 Cup and 330 Challenge [individually] and instead will focus on running one very strong BMW Car Club Racing Championship,” said 750MC competitions secretary Giles Groombridge.
“We have written the regulations in such a way that the M3 Cup cars will have an ideal place in the M2 class. Also the Class 6 is for six-cylinder non-m3powered cars, and the 330s will be ideally placed to be competitive in that. It makes sense and we hope to have 30-plus-car grids.”
