Interest has come from a variety of different circles, including current racers, total novices and even some overseas competitors. Only a little over two weeks after the Series was revealed at the launch at Stratstone Jaguar in Mayfair, London, the Series looks promising indeed.
Series Elite is a new one-make racing series with a lower age restriction of 50 years, affording the more mature drivers an opportunity to compete on a level playing field. The new Jaguar F-Type SVO GT4 specification is the car of choice, whilst there’s an anticipated field of twenty cars for 2019.
Drivers signing up early for the full 2019 calendar also get the opportunity to join a ten-car grid at Brands Hatch in Kent, later this year. Drivers requiring the correct level of race license will be able to compete in the BARC run closed event of 6 races to upgrade to National A status in September this year.
Series Director Graeme Glew, is in buoyant mood as the championship begins to take shape:
“It’s great to finally start promoting the Series and being able to talk to potential customers who are serious about racing with like-minded competitors. Interest has come from a wide variety of drivers, including enquiries coming in from overseas. It’s been a long journey to get this far and I’m looking forward to seeing these fabulous race cars line up on the grid at Brands Hatch in October”
Series Elite will officially take to the track for the first time at Brands Hatch on the 27th and 28th of October this year.
