BARC Speed Championship

Catering for every kind of vehicle from standard production to single-seater racing cars, the BARC Speed Championship visits some of the best circuit, sprint and Hillclimb venues in the country.

The scoring, ensuring that everyone has a chance at the overall award (the amazing Wilkinson Sword), is based on established class records providing points opportunities for every type of car. It has been won by Production cars more than once and the combination of disciplines and locations means you can plan your season according to your budget. Entrants have tried the championship in standard road cars and found themselves competitive in class. Without doubt this is a cost effective way of entering motorsport.

The Overall Winner receives the unique Wilkinson Sword (with the names of many speed luminaries already on it) plus £200, the runner-up £75 and a Trophy, along with trophies for class winners.

The Rallye Communications Ltd Top Six Challenge for fastest times set at a meeting will present a trophy for 1st place and one to the runner-up.

The Insite Graphics Challenge Trophy Best 8 scores to count, with a trophy and £100 prize for 1st place and £75 for 2nd place.

The Down to Earth Ladies Award is £100 prize and a trophy for 1st place and a £25 prize and a trophy for the runner up.

For Production and Road-going classes Emerald offer the Emerald Award where the winner receives a day's use of their Rolling Road and set-up facilities.

The Raymond Good FTD Handicap Trophy is open to all BARC Speed Championship competitors and has a prize of £100 and a trophy for 1st place and £75 for 2nd. This challenge will be calculated by a handicap system.
