Choosing a racing championship

Choosing a formula for racing can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Every driver has different aspirations and preferences regarding circuit racing, such as single-seaters, saloon cars, sports cars, GTs, sports prototypes, or endurance racing. There is a wide range of options available for every driver.

It’s essential to take the time to research different race championships or series, including the cars eligible to compete, the circuits they visit, and the regulations and entry forms. This will help you gain a thorough understanding of what each championship has to offer.

Once you have decided on a formula, you should reach out to the championship coordinator, who is the primary point of contact for any series. The coordinator oversees the championship and ensures it runs smoothly while maintaining communication with the organizing club. They will be able to provide you with valuable information and answer any questions you may have.

  • Deciding whether to race as part of a team or independently is a personal choice.
  • Some drivers prefer to buy their own car and run it independently.
  • Others choose to work with established teams and outfits that can assist them in preparing, building, and running their car or even provide complete “arrive and drive” services.
  • To make the best choice, it is essential to speak to as many teams as possible to understand the options available in your chosen championship.
  • Factors to consider when comparing teams include cost, location, and services offered.
  • Trust your gut instinct when choosing a team and ensure you have a good rapport with them.

Some drivers prefer to buy their own car and run it independently, while others choose to work with established teams that can assist with preparing, building, and running their car or provide complete “arrive and drive” services.

What kind of membership do I need to compete in a BRSCC championship?

Drivers must hold a valid racing membership with the BRSCC, which costs £135.00. An alternate option is the “Premium Club” membership for £50.00, which allows drivers to compete in one-off rounds throughout the season. Most memberships are paid separately from the registration fee. Still, some series include BRSCC membership in the registration fee or do not require it if they are administrated by a third party.

How do I register for a championship?

After obtaining the necessary gear, license, and car, drivers must register for their chosen championship. Registrations typically open once the regulations have been approved and signed off by Motorsport UK and can be completed via the BRSCC Race Hub system. Every competitor must complete the registration on the online system or with their championship coordinator if racing in a series administrated by a third party.

How do I enter a race?

Contact the HQ office by phone or email, or use the online entry system on the BRSCC website. Race entries must be paid and completed before the cut-off date, two weeks before the chosen event. Keep the confirmation emails, final instructions, and entry list safe and read and understand all documents before the race.
