Two one-hour race for­mat for Brit­car

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
