The Caterham Motorsport roster gets set to touch down on its home turf, as all five championships make the trip up the road from their Dartford HQ to Brands Hatch in Kent for their penultimate weekend of the 2020 season. Competing on the Indy circuit, the short 1.2 mile layout always produces an entertaining weekend of action, and that’s practically guaranteed from the Caterham Academy, Roadsport, Seven 270R, Seven 310R and Seven 420R championships. At this late stage in the season, there is a chance that any of those five titles could be settled before the weekend is through but whatever the chase, these nimble Caterhams should wind their way around this speed bowl in a rather timely manner.
Adding to the superb action throughout the weekend will be the final rounds of the Avon Tyres National Formula Ford Championship, where someone will walk away as the 2020 champion and potentially also receive the coveted British F4 prize on offer for the best placed Pro Class driver aged 25 or under. The National championship provides amazing racing and is still one of the best single seater series in the UK, as well as a key proving ground for young drivers learning their craft.
There’s also set to be some great tin-top action from the Production GTi Championship, an excellent cost-effective way to race a Mk2 or Mk5 VW Golf GTi and a series that typically produces some excellent door-to-door racing. A superb grid of experienced PGTi veterans coupled with some enthusiastic rookies means there’s a vast array of driving talent on display here ready to hustle one of the best hot hatches of all time against one another.
For an extra exciting element, there’s also going to be racing on Sunday from the latest sensation from the BRSCC – the exceptional Clubsport Trophy. This will mark their last race of the season after four previous encounters including a trip to Brands Hatch back in May, and brings 45-minute mini-endurance racing to the timetable with an eclectic variety of machinery set to be on display on track. Racing in this series is usually intense and the last chance to earn bragging rights should certainly be no different! Their grid will also be bolstered by the Mazda MX-5 Mk4 Trophy, as they end their 2020 development cycle with one final race for the year.
Also, keep an eye out for the brilliant sprint races set to be contested by championships from the Classic & Modern Motorsport Club’s Southern Centre, who should bring their Super Saloons, Production Saloons and Intermarque Silhouettes out to play as well.
