C1 RACING CLUB ENDS 2022 SEASON WITH BRSCC WITH INCREASED AVERAGE GRID SIZE
As 2022 draws to a close, one of the most successful new partnerships for the BRSCC this year was undoubtedly the ever-popular C1 Racing Club and its Silverlake C1 Endurance Series. From the outset, there was a natural synergy between both parties and by the time the first round at Snetterton in April rolled around, there was plenty of excitement – and as it turned out, it was more than justified.
What followed was seven incredibly fun race weekends full of enthralling endurance racing, which was capped off by our very first running of the C1 24 Hours at Silverstone in May. It was the Club’s first 24-hour race in several years, and it was a magical weekend from start to finish with a packed entry, a sensational atmosphere and superb live stream coverage.
In a season that also attracted BTCC stars such as Josh Cook, Jade Edwards #99 and newly crowned champion Tingram, plus featuring several race-winning teams throughout, 2022 was certainly a season to remember for the C1 paddock and there’s lots to get excited about for 2023 as the series looks set to be even bigger and better next time out.
To put into context just how great a season the C1 Racing Club had in its first BRSCC season, Autosport recently reported that the series saw an average grid size of 43 cars in 2022, up 5% from its previous season and the largest average grid within the club’s portfolio.
To that end and to celebrate this incredible achievement, we have to say a huge thank you and congratulations to Robin Welsh, Tom Brown, Rob Lewis and the entire C1 Racing Club crew, all of their drivers and teams, Allen Prebble and Silverlake Automotive Recycling, and Nankang Tyre UK for all playing their parts in making it so great. Onwards to another belter in 2023!
