Merely a week after our Summer Festival at the same venue, the BRSCC checks back into Snetterton in Norfolk for another race day that’s sure to be full of top quality racing!
The timetable is effectively dominated by the ever-bustling BRSCC Mazda MX-5 paddock, where all three championships will be competing on the 300 circuit. The Mazda MX-5 Championships has more than 50 drivers registered for the start of the season and more and sure to follow as the calendar progresses, so expect a solid entry here as per usual. The same can also be said for the Mazda MX-5 SuperCup, which is thankfully seeing its boost in support from 2020 continued this year. More than 40 drivers will be expected to appear at some stage over the course of 2021 and like the others, we’re sure that others will appear that weren’t originally on the list at the beginning of the season.
Plus we’re also certain to see great support for our new MX-5 contest, the Mazda MX-5 Clubman Championship. As this event is only running over one day, the Clubman Championship slots in nicely thanks to its one-day, two race format aimed at novice drivers and those who want to race an MX-5 in a way that benefits them in terms of cost-effectiveness and also logistics. All three MX-5 competitions are set to be intense with plenty of close racing and the prospect of lots of overtaking thanks to the long straight and variety of corners that Snetterton provides.
In addition, ahead of a full programme of events planned for the 2022 season, the BRSCC are delighted to announce the launch of their brand new SuperSport Endurance Cup Series, with a single 2021 event scheduled to take place on July 31st at Snetterton Circuit.
The BRSCC’s all new SuperSport Endurance Cup Series will utilise a power to weight based class structure, multiple driver options, refuelling and mandatory pit stops. Race durations will vary from 90 minutes to 3 hours, with the inaugural event being allocated 1hr 40mins on the Snetterton 300 track layout.
The multi-class structure allows an access point for most club-level racers, with the top classes catering for the likes of TCR cars, Ginetta, Ex-BTCC cars. The mid classes should be attractive to owners of BMW M3, Clio Cup, VW Cup, Civic Cup and the like.
