Britcar launch prototype series for 2016

1 Mins read

The team behind the Dunlop Endurance and Dunlop Production Championships, Britcar, has announced it will run a series for prototypes in 2016.

Focussing on teams running prototypes and CN cars which wouldn’t fit into Britcar’s existing championships, organisers are hoping the idea of a new home for machinery that doesn’t have a home many other places in the UK will prove to be popular.

Indeed, having discussed the new series with a number of interested teams at the Autosport International Show Britcar has unveiled a four round, five race calendar taking in some of the best tracks in the UK and Belgium.

Starting at Silverstone for two one-hour races in April, the series moves on to Donington Park in July for a single one-hour race. They’ll take on the same again at Snetterton in September before going to Spa-Francorchamps for a season closing two-hour race in October.

This will provide a basis for this year, testing the water before an expanded calendar for 2017 where organisers are hoping for at least seven or eight rounds.

Taking to the track will be three classes of cars, the headline category will be a prototype class for machines from Riley, Saker and Aquila as well as Ginetta’s new G57 and Radical’s RXC. The second and third categories are for CN prototypes such as the Wolf GB08 and the Ligier JS53, the two categories for these cars will be split into post-2010 and pre-2010 for sake of performance balancing.

The first round gets underway at Silverstone on the first weekend of April.
