It’s felt like such a long off-season, and the cold and arduous winter won’t have helped the feeling that it would be an age before racing would begin again. But thankfully, having made it through to the other side, the British Racing & Sports Car Club is ready to lift up the shutters, put fingers to engine start buttons and peel out of the garages at long last to get its 2023 club racing season underway.
The venue couldn’t be more fitting, as the Home of British Motorsport beckons for all those contesting this first weekend of competition. Silverstone is the circuit that play host to the first race weekend of the year, and it’s the full GP layout in use on this occasion. That means lots of long straight and fast, sweeping corners to allow both drivers and cars to really stretch their legs and shake off the cobwebs with plenty of top racing in store.
It won’t just be the quality of the racing that will impress, but the sheer number of cars turning up to compete too. Across all championships and series attending, that figure is only a handful shy of some 350 cars, a phenomenal number to achieve for the opening meeting and one of the largest and best-supported BRSCC race weekends in recent years!
