About the CNC Heads Championship

This Sports/Saloon championship started off back in 1984 as a Special GT championship with a small core of regular enthusiastic entrants. Over the next 30 years it has grown into a successful, stable and cost-effective Sports/Saloon championship over 12 rounds with grids regularly exceeding 30 cars of varied make, model and power.

Championship sponsor CNC Heads is welcomed back for another year, their thirteenth. Without their enthusiastic support the Championship would not be as strong as it currently is. To be eligible cars must have been originally designed for road use, they are then split into two basic categories, Special and Modified. Each of these categories is then sub-divided into three capacity classes with splits at 1600cc and 2500cc. The more highly modified cars fit into the Special classes, basically as long as the car has the same silhouette as the original then it will probably be suitable. The Modified classes are for the less tuned cars and does also include virtually road going cars.
