The Britcar organisation is delighted to announce that it will be running the Motorsport UK-sanctioned British Endurance Championship in 2022. Britcar has a rich history of top- end club-level endurance racing dating back over 20 years, with innovative formats and the popularisation of 24-hour racing in the UK.
More recently, under a new management structure, Britcar has continually re-aligned its format in response to the shifting competitor demand for National level endurance racing. With demand as high as ever, it is the right time to move up a level, returning to a true endurance racing in a National championship. The popular one-day event format will remain, as will the renowned convivial paddock atmosphere that has been cultivated by competitors and Britcars long-serving, experienced and dedicated team.
