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, 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.

Latest News

The latest rounds of the Championship took place on the picturesque island of Anglesey at the beginning of September. Paul Rose took a triple win in his Saker. He heads to the next round at Donington Park on the 29th September with a clear, though not unassailable lead in the Championship. Overall he leads from Jamie Cryer and Oliver Thomas who also leads classes E and D respectively. The other classes are led by Luke Armiger (B), Dave Harvey (C) and Clive Dix (F).

Second Anglesey Triple for Paul Rose

For the second time this year Paul Rose in his Saker took a triple in Anglesey. Even starting from the pit lane in the third race did nothing to dent his mastery of the picturesque circuit. David Harvey (Locosaki) and Garry Wardle (Porsche 996) also had triple class wins. Rose now leads the championship comfortably though he can be caught if he has some bad luck. Jamie Cryer, Oliver Thomas, Dave Harvey and Clive Dix are poised to take advantage of any slip ups.

The other classes saw much closer racing with class wins for Oliver Thomas (Subaru), Paul Rotheroe (Citroen Xsara) and the Class F Honda Civic of Rob Wakelin.
