Cadwell Park awaits four BARC championships

07 Sep 17

Cadwell Park provides the latest stop on the calendar for several BARC championships this weekend (9/10 September).

Known for its picturesque scenery and undulation, the Lincolnshire-based venue is likely to provide plenty of on-track thrills ‘n’ spills.

The Mighty Minis Championship is edging towards its season finale with this weekend’s visit to Cadwell a pivotal one. Alice Hughes finds herself at the summit of the points, 16 clear of Damien Harrington.

Consistency has been Hughes’ greatest trait thus far with a string of front-running results, including two wins. Maintaining her form will be key in capturing the coveted crown - although the likes of Harrington, Craig Pendlebury and Stuart Coombs will be ones to watch as the bid to overhaul her.

In the Super Mighty Mini class, Scott Kendall is on course to retain his title with Adrian Tuckley as his only challenger.

Fans of single-seater racing will be catered for with the Luna Logisitics Classic Formula Ford 1600 Championship in action. In what is the penultimate event of the season for the series, the title battle in Class A is very much up for grabs.

Reigning champion Adriano Medeiros sits at the top of the championship points in the top tier. Notching six wins thus far, Medeiros holds a 14-point lead over Mark Armstrong whilst Nigel Lingwood also remains firmly in contention.

A strong weekend for any of these three could change the overall outlook of who will emerge from the series finale as champion. Things are more clear cut in Class B though with Stuart Kestenbaum holding an unassailable lead at the top of the points.

The Citroen C1 Challenge will bring the curtain down on its maiden season with two and four-hour races taking place over both days.

Proving to be a smash hit with sizeable grids at both Snetterton and Pembrey, the flowing curves of Cadwell are set to test both man and machine to the limit.

Caryl Willis, Philip Myatt, Peter Rundle, Richard Dalton and Louis Tyson tasted success last time out whilst the likes of James Macintyre-Ure, Jonathan Cool, Paul Dickinson and Paul Roddison will all be ones to watch.

Rounding out the action will be two races from the Lancaster Insurance MG Owner’s Club Championship. With a diverse mixture of iconic cars from the infamous manufacturer, there is something for everyone when the MG series hit the track.

Notable names to keep an eye on include Alan Forster, Simon Kendrick and Jim Baynam.
