BRSCC & C1 RACING CLUB HAIL SUCCESSFUL START TO NEW PARTNERSHIP AT SNETTERTON, AS SILVERSTONE 24 HOURS BECKONS
Sunday, April 17th 2022 will go down as an important moment in the history of both the British Racing & Sports Car Club and the C1 Racing Club, as it officially marked the successful beginning of their brand new partnership together with the running of the first ever Silverlake C1 Endurance Series race under the guidance of the BRSCC on the Snetterton 300 circuit.
Snetterton saw the largest entry the series had ever received at the Norfolk circuit with a record 57 Citroen C1s lining up for the five-hour contest. The race itself was close at the front in the opening stages as the #Blessed and Emax Motorsport teams ran together and pulled away in their own private battle, with #Blessed taking the lead. Through the pit stops, both cars shared the top spot along with Oakley Motorsport, and then Ardcor Modelmakers, the four teams trading the lead between them, and heading into the final hour no less than 8 cars were still on the lead lap. After late pit stops shook out the true order of the race, it was Ardcor’s John Ardis and Mike Graham that came home as winners, ahead of Oakley Motorsport’s Graham Oakley and Harry Newman-Oakley, with Emax Motorsport’s Jake Little, James Little and Stuart Ratcliffe completing the podium.
The momentum now shifts as the series moves forward toward its centrepiece event of the year – the Silverlake C1 24 Hours on the Silverstone GP circuit on May 20/21/22. Always a massively popular event with drivers throughout the British motorsport scene, the 24 hour race weekend starts with qualifying and night time acclimatisation on the Friday evening, before a full day of support racing precedes the main event which is set to get underway at 5pm on Saturday afternoon and continue until its conclusion 24 hours later.
So far, entry numbers are very encouraging for the C1 24 Hours, however there is still room on the grid for those teams and drivers still making their plans to join us for what is sure to be a magnificent weekend of racing.

As the first C1 24 Hour race to be run by the BRSCC approaches, we’re already excited about seeing a packed grid for what is sure to be an awesome experience for all concerned.
