The BRSCC will hold its first meeting at Lydden Hill in almost two years when the officials and marshals of the South Eastern Centre congregate at the circuit in deepest Kent on Saturday morning. Twelve races are scheduled for the two day meeting, although Saturday has largely been given over to testing plus a double-header for the Tiger Racing Series.

Taking to the track on both the Saturday and Sunday for three fifteen minute demonstration sessions will be cars from the Ford Fiesta Junior Championship. This new series is for drivers who are aged between 14 – 16 years of age and although there has been some testing, this will be the first time the drivers have been out on track in ‘race meeting’ conditions. For more information contact Kevin Shortis on 01323 895859 or email or visit their website FIESTA JUNIOR

The grown-up Fiestas are in race action on Sunday with double headers in the Competition Car Insurance Dunlop Ford Fiesta Championship. Class A leader John Langridge has swopped his Si for an ST this weekend while Scott Baines in Class B (Zetec) and David Grady (ST) could go a long way to securing their respective class titles.

The Dunlop Motorsport News Saloon Car Championship, Quaife Intermarque League & Cannons Motor Spares Tin Tops have all been regulars at BRSCC meetings this season, despite being BARC SE championships. All three will be present at the Canterbury track for double headers on Sunday afternoon.
