Finally, the start of the new season is almost here for competitors in the 2020 Kumho BMW Championship, the longest-running race series in the UK for production BMW’s, having been established over 30 years ago.
The venue for Races 1 & 2 is the popular Silverstone National circuit on the weekend of 21/22nd March. The format will be qualifying followed by two races over the weekend with competitors split through 4 classes defined on a power/weight ratio catering for any model BMW from virtually standard to “out & out” full race versions, and the overall champion can come from any Class due to the points scoring system.
This year the championship looks to be wide open with last year’s all-conquering champion, Garrie Whittaker moving onto new challenges leaving the field open to a number of drivers, both seasoned campaigners & fired-up newcomers. Drivers to look out for include previous champions James Card, Russell Dack and Des Thresh and 2019 front runners Lucky Khera and Jas Sapra.
With a full weekend of track action featuring a huge variety of cars in close combat, unrivalled paddock access & low ticket prices, why not come along and have a look.
