The Trophy Category will again run under a class structure, but with shorter races and no refuelling, open to any car whose performance does not match a GT4 or TCR car. Races will each include a mandatory pitstop, allowing cars to be shared with two drivers if preferred. Trophy will share some weekends with Endurance but will also become the headline event on others. The mandated tyre is the Direzza trackday tyre, negating the extra cost of separate sets for wet and dry conditions.
The format of our weekends will stay the same: for both Endurance and Trophy categories, nearly all will be single-day events, representing an immediate saving on costs. For Endurance we will continue to offer both TV coverage and VIP Hospitality for drivers and teams at each round.
The format for the British Endurance Championship will retain most of the features that made the fore-running Britcar Endurance Championship so popular, though now on a true Endurance basis, featuring warm-up, 30-minutes qualifying, and a singe two- or three-hour race, with a mandatory pit stop, and open to one or two-driver teams. The 2023 season will also feature a non-championship six-hour race. The one-day event format has proved extremely popular over the years, and this will remain, as will the convivial paddock atmosphere, renowned in the sector, complemented by friendly, experienced raceday staff. Now featuring an enhanced level of hospitality for drivers and guests, the Championship will visit all of the UK’s premier circuits, with TV coverage for each race.
The Championship will be multi-class, featuring six classes based on Britcar’s unique Balance of Performance Indicator (BEPI), which has proved successful in the past in levelling performance to create a competitive environment for an eclectic variety of GT and Touring cars, with GT3 machines at the top end, to just about any suitable cars that comply with the lower-end BEPI category.
