It’s Not What You Drive, It’s How You Drive It!

For just £35.00, the BARC Connaught Speed Championship provides an enjoyable, engaging and truly competitive series for established drivers. What’s more, for new competitors who are keen to experience the thrills of motorsport, it offers an accessible and affordable starting point.

Catering for almost every type of vehicle from standard road cars to single-seater racing cars, the Championship is open to all British Automobile Racing Club members, plus current members of motorsport clubs affiliated to any one of nine regional associations.*

The 2022 season features an impressive thirty-two rounds at some of the best motorsport circuits, sprint and hill climb venues in the UK, with points accumulated from your choice of any ten rounds representing your final score. This combination of diverse driving environments and nationwide locations allows you to plan according to your ability, availability and budget.

Scoring is based on class records. This provides the opportunity for every type of vehicle to accumulate the same amount of points and ensures that all competitors have a fair chance of taking home a prize. The overall BARC Connaught Speed Championship winner receives the prestigious Wilkinson Sword and £300, with £150 and a trophy for second place, plus £75 and a trophy for third place. There are trophies for all of our class winners too.
