All-out Anglesey action as BARC championships shine in North Wales

03 Sep 18

The British Automobile Racing Club’s latest visit to Anglesey Circuit had it all this past weekend (September 1/2) as championship battles intensified and some drivers put themselves out of sight of their title rivals.

Descending on the picturesque Welsh venue for the second time this season, the Club’s North West Centre delivered a blockbuster two days of track action.

In the Michelin Clio Cup Series, Ben Palmer made it back-to-back title wins as he produced another mesmerising performance to secure an unassailable lead in the point’s standings. Maintaining his unbeaten run by adding another three victories to his 2018 tally, Palmer dominated proceedings to provisionally retain his crown.

Nic Harrison mirrored Palmer’s performance at Anglesey with a hat-trick of his own in the Race Class to also continue his impressive run of victories to successfully defend his title too.

Joel Wren was perfection personified in the Junior Saloon Car Championship as he bagged a pair of race wins. Storming to pole position in qualifying, the teenage sensation proved to be in a league of his own as he vaulted himself further into title contention.

Paul Rose continued the run of dominant performances across each series as he bagged a sensational hat-trick in the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship. Entering the weekend as the form driver, Rose underlined his front-running credentials with a scintillating display from the wheel of his Saker RAPX S1-400.

Spoils were shared in the BARC Clubmans Sports Prototype Championship in association with King Henry’s Taverns as Clive Wood and Michelle Hayward topped the podium.

Wood struck first over the course of the weekend as he beat Hayward to honours in race one before the roles were reversed for the second encounter. With one win apiece, the third and final race of the weekend proved to be an exciting one, with Wood ultimately coming out on top.

Capping off the weekend’s action from the BARC was a selection of races from the APL Health Caterham Graduates Championship. Amalgamating classes together, high-octane thrills were the order of the day from the Caterham contingent as they wowed those in attendance.

Samuel Wilson and Jamie Ellwood each scored a win in the Sigmax duels whilst Ben Winrow was at the double for the combined Classic, Sigma and Mega races.
