THE British Racing Sports Car Club will provide the curtain-raiser to Rockingham’s 2013 motorsport season when it returns to the Corby circuit next month with a programme of saloon and sportscar races.

A firm favourite with the home crowd, the race weekend on April 6 and April 7, will provide two days of tin-top, sportscar and single-seater action, to get Rockingham’s new racing season under way in style.

With the return of the Ticket for a Tenner promotion for all club race meetings, the meeting promises to be a great family day out at an affordable price with adult tickets just £10 in advance and free admission for children aged 16 and under.

Spectators are sure to be entertained with a number of new championships for 2013 taking to the track for the first time at Rockingham, including a strong grid of MK1 Mazda MX5’s, in the club’s newest race series.

For Ford fans, there are two Fiesta race series on the schedule, the senior championship with four classes, including the new Zetec S 1.6 for 2013, while in its second year, the junior competition is a great way to introduce 14 to 16 year olds to circuit racing.

The BRSCC Porsche Championship returns to Rockingham with Toyo Tires as their new title sponsor. The growing series has classes for the race spec Boxster, the production Boxster and the old faithful 924.

Another regular visitor is the BRSCC Alfashop Alfa Romeo Championship and there will be plenty of models of the iconic Italian marque in action. A full grid is also expected in the Arrowpak Euro Saloon & Sports Car Championship, which brings an eclectic mix of racing machines.

All the action takes place on the International Super Sportscar Long Circuit, and adding to the entertainment will be the Nippon Challenge and the MR2 Race Series, which always have good entries from the track Attack Race Club.

All tickets include a free grandstand seat with a unique panoramic view of the entire circuit and access to the race paddock, allowing an exclusive insight into the hard work which goes on behind the scenes to keep the drivers and cars on track.

Advance tickets can be booked online at www.rockingham.co.uk or via the hotline on 01536 500500, option1, until midday on Friday, April 5. Adult tickets will also be available on the day priced at £15 on both days, while children aged 16 and under get in free. Gates open at 8am.
