BRSCC Season Opener

This two-day season-opening race meeting at Brands Hatch was run by the BRSCC South Eastern Centre and saw a number of different classes running around the  Indy circuit. Fixtures for the weekend were the BRSCC Mazda MX-5 ChampionshipBRSCC Mazda MX-5 Super SeriesBRSCC Fiesta ChampionshipBRSCC Fiesta Junior ChampionshipSpeed Group F1000 ChampionshipNankang Tyres BMW Compact Cup,  with additional races from the Track Attack Race Club. I could only make the Saturday for practice and qualifying, but it was an entertaining few hours at my local circuit.
