The BRSCC’s third and final visit of the year to Silverstone comes in mid September with at least two championships set to be decided on this weekend, capably looked after by our Midlands Centre.
The pair of championship finales come from our brace of series from the Mazda MX-5 paddock. The packed entry from the Mazda MX-5 Championship for Mk1 models and the Mazda MX-5 SuperCup for Mk3 models reach their conclusion here at the Home of British Motorsport with a combined total of nine races to finish off the 2020 campaign and crown champions in both. Racing in either of these series is never dull and always produces an incredible show and with the titles on the line, the action might just get turned up to 11 given how they’ve gone down to the wires every year for the last six seasons!
Before that, Saturday’s racing will be dominated by the penultimate encounter of the season for the Fun Cup Championship. With four hours of flat-out endurance racing on the table, the battle will be on to come out on top in a series that is known for its intense long-distance action. Believe it or not, Fun Cup races never have anything you’d call a quiet period as every driver is on it from start to finish for the entire race!
Adding to the weekend’s fun will be the BRSCC Fiesta Championship and BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship, both of which cater to one of the best selling cars in the UK of all time. The senior level Fiesta Championship will see Mk6 ST150s and Mk7 Zetec S models battle it out on an even footing with each other, while the rejuvenated Fiesta Junior Championship heads towards the end of a season that will have seen some incredible racing from our 14-17 year old racers. Any of them you see on track this weekend could end up in touring cars, GT or sports car racing in the future!
Rounding off the weekend will be the Caterham Academy Championship, with both Green and White groups in action and showcasing Caterham’s latest crop of rookie drivers competing in their first season of racing. At this stage, all drivers will be well versed in circuit racing by now and their heightened confidence levels should mean the racing will be a little more intense than it had been at the start of the year.
