About the ETSL ST-XR Challenge

It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s friendly, it’s cost-effective… it’s the ETSL ST-XR Challenge!

With roots going all the way back to the 1980s, this long-standing home for Ford saloons has been providing great racing at a reasonable price for many decades due to the fact that the series conforms to Group N regulations and uses Yokohama control tyres.

Our championship is accessible to those wishing to compete in a broad range of models from Ford’s back catalogue. Firstly, there are the established categories for the Mk2 Ford Fiesta XR2 (Class A), Mk3/4 Ford Escort XR3i (Class B) and Ford Fiesta Si (Class C).

In 2018 these were joined by a Class D for 2004 to 2008 Model Ford Fiesta ST cars, Class E opened up the series to Mk2 XR2s running without an LSD and at a lower weight limit than their Class A counterparts while Class F features invited entrants who can compete in any Front Wheel Drive Ford – usually with a maximum engine size of 1800cc.

For 2021, there is scheduled to be 17 races on our calendar and these will be staged over 7 meetings at 6 different circuits. These tracks are mostly in the North of England – Cadwell Park, Croft, Oulton Park, and Donington Park – with two “away” fixtures at Knockhill and Snetterton. However, due to Covid, the schedule is subject to change.
