Oulton Park next up for BARC

06 Jul 17

Oulton Park awaits the British Automobile Racing Club this weekend (8 July) with four championships set to duke it out in what is set to be an action-packed day.

Spearheaded by the BARC’s North West Centre, a total of 11 races are set to be played out around the flowing curves of the Cheshire circuit.

Topping the bill is the CNC Heads/Saloon Car Championship – a popular fixture at Oulton Park. Having boasted bumper grids this year in excess of 40 cars, the multi-class championship is set to continue going from strength-to-strength.

Former champion Joe Spencer currently sits in the box seat with a two-point advantage over Piers Grange. Taking the chequered flag on a number of occasions this season in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki machine, Spencer is on course to bag more championship glory but faces stiff competition.

Notable names to watch for over the course of Saturday’s two races include Roddie Paterson, Iain Gorrie, Paul Rose and Matt Spark.

The Kumho BMW Championship will also be in action with some of the best models of Bavarian brand hitting the track.

Like the CNC Heads, Kumho BMWs has enjoyed strong grid this year with all of their classes being well represented. With the title battles in all delicately poised, the challenges that Oulton Park presents are likely to have an impact on the title battle as the likes of Oliver Taylor, James Card and Russell Dack target more glory.

Fans of single seaters will be well-catered for too with the Luna Logistics Formula Ford 1600 Championship taking place. Having been a popular proving ground for aspiring racers in years gone by, these iconic machines continue to dazzle spectators with spectacular entertainment being provided.

Capping off the BARC action is the King Henry Taverns Clubmans Championship which heads into the second half of its season.
