Chris Overend and James Whitley, driving the Team BRIT BMW 240i, are the 2022 Britcar Endurance Trophy champions, potentially the first all-disabled pairing to win a UK national championship. The title went down to the wire, with no definite resolution until the last of two races at the Donington finale, and runner-up is lone-driving teenager Charlie Hand, seven points adrift in the Westbourne Motors Renault Clio. The final step of the podium goes to Chandler Motorsport’s Rhys Hurd and Harry Yardley-Rose, who tie with SVG G40 Cup driver Peter Dilnot on 311 points, but take third place by dint of five class wins against four. All four also claim their respective class titles, while the Class 1 crown goes to Mark Lee and Owen Hizzey in the SVG Ginetta G56A.
