Two one-hour race format for Britcar
The format of the Britcar Endurance Championship will change next year as the series reverts to two one-hour races on a weekend.
Two 50-minute races for the Sprint Championship and one 50-minute plus one two-hour race for the Endurance Championship has been the format for the past two seasons.
But following a consultation with teams and drivers, this will be changed to two onehour races (held on the same day) per round with just one overall title up for grabs.
“Britcar has been listening to what the customer wants,” said championship co-ordinator Claire Hedley.
“We plan to have a cheaper price-per-minute of racing, it would be less than this year.
“We want to make sure we’re offering a better package.”
The provisional eightround calendar consists of Silverstone – on both the International and Grand Prix layout – Donington Park, Snetterton, Oulton Park, as well as two visits to Brands Hatch.
The final round will be at Brands for the Into the Night Races across two days, with the final race on Sunday lasting two hours instead of one.
