This very successful Championship. The Championship's big attraction is the wide diversity of eligible cars capable of being competitive. Whilst the nimble front wheel drive hatches have traditionally been favourites there is now a competitive group of turbocharged cars featuring in the results.
MSA List 1A tyres and the introduction of AD08Rs in 2017, limited suspension modifications also helps to keep costs down.
Many of the front runners are using fully race prepared engines with budgets to match, however many competitors compete with very modest budgets and have great races, with large grids there is always someone to race with.
The Championship is eligible for 2 wheel drive production saloons manufacturered in the 21st Century and split into 4 classes from which any class can provide the outright Championship winner.

Ryall had to win Class C and set fastest lap to have a chance of denying Simon Thornton-Norris the title, and his weekend had started perfectly with 4th overall and Class C pole.Read Full Story...
