About the CNC Heads Championship 2023

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 sixteenth. 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 second year of partnership. 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. In 2023 all motorcycled engined cars have their own Special Class (G). The Modified classes are for the less tuned cars and does also include virtually road going cars.
