Welcome to the Chester & Liverpool Motor Clubs’ Speed Championship.
Regulations & booking forms are available from mid January and you can join the Championship at any time before entries close on the 1st July each year.
Sprinting and Hillclimbing are still two of the cheapest and safest forms of competitive motor sport and there continues to be a great variety of cars used, from completely standard road cars to 5 litre single seat racing cars.
These days many UK events are over-subscribed and several are restricted to regular competitors of the organising club, so we see our Championship as a way of helping drivers compete at an exciting range of popular venues that they might not normally get the chance to drive.
We started the Championship back in 2005 and thanks to its ever increasing popularity it has grown from strength to strength each year. We are pleased to be able to maintain the number of qualifying rounds from which drivers can select, at 20. For 2012 we have managed to add a hillclimb round at Harewood, whilst continuing to include rounds at our usual popular hillclimb venues of Barbon Manor, Loton Park & Olivers Mount, and sprints at Aintree, Three Sisters and the ever popular Anglesey Circuit, and the season finishes with an exciting double header weekend event at Thoresby Park.
What makes the championship so popular is its two division format. Division 1 competitors compete in at least 7 of the 20 rounds, whilst Division 2 competitors nominate just 6 rounds to count for their championship. There’s even a Classic Production and Racing Cars Championship for those cars that were built prior to January 1973.
Considerable interest is being shown again this year in our exciting “Top Ten Challenge” sponsored by Stella Motors – effectively a separate competition within the Championship. All registered contenders for the main Championship will automatically qualify, but only the Liverpool Motor Club rounds at Aintree, & Chester Motor Club rounds at Anglesey and Three Sisters will count for the Challenge.
The season finishes with the Championship Awards Presentation held at the Broughton Wings Sports and Social Club, near Chester, where over 50 trophies are award each year. This relaxed, social event is our opportunity to thank everyone who has helped make the Championship such a success by taking part during the year.
We must thank our headline sponsors Cambrian Autospares Ltd & interconnectIT.com for their sponsorship and involvement. We also welcome Plays-Kool Motorsport, Fuel Injection Centre Bolton and SP Autos whose support helps to make the Championship “The Best in the North West”.
Incidentally, all our sponsors have significant interests in Club Motorsport and fully understand the requirements of the club competitor, so why not see what they can do for you?
If you are already registered for the ANWCC Sprint and/or Hillclimb Championship, Longton & District Motor Club’s Championship, or Lancashire & Cheshire Car Club’s Championship, why not join the Chester & Liverpool Speed Championship too, as we have rounds at most of the same events and you can easily increase your chances of winning an award this year.
We hope you will join us this year and enjoy a successful season’s Motorsport with the Chester & Liverpool Motor Clubs’ Speed Championship – The Best in the Northwest!
