About the CNC Heads Championship 2024

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 40 years it has grown into a successful, stable and cost-effective Sports/Saloon championship run over at least 12 rounds with grids regularly approaching or exceeding 30 cars of varied make, model and power.

Championship sponsor CNC Heads was welcomed back for another year, their seventeenth. Without their enthusiastic support the Championship would not be as strong as it currently is. We also welcome back CSP Car Service Packs for a third year of partnership. To be eligible cars must have been originally designed for road use, they are then split into two basic categories, Silhouette 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 Silhouette Special classes, basically as long as the car has the same silhouette as the original then it will probably be suitable. In 2023 all motorcycled engined cars were given their own Silhouette Special Class (G), this is continued in 2024. The Modified classes are for the less tuned cars and does also include virtually road going cars.

Latest News

Our first two rounds took place at Donington Park on the 20th April with a healthy grid of 33 cars. Both races were won by Andy Southcott in his MG Midget Lenham though a small entry in Class A meant he could not score maximum points. The Championship is led by the Mazda RX8 of Class E newcomer Wayne Spiller. Our next round is at Croft with DDMC on the 18th/19th May.
