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 34th season of the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Championship came to a close at a wet and (very) windy Oulton Park on the 21st October. Joe Spencer in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki took two dominant class wins to capture the title for the second time. Once all the points were added up the Championship class winners were, Paul Rose (Saker) in Class A, Luke Armiger (Tigra) in Class B, Joe in Class C, Oliver Thomas (Impreza) in Class D, Piers Grange in Class E with Iain Gorrie (Raw Striker) in Class F. This season has, by all measures, been the most successful yet with 102 registered drivers with a record 76 drivers starting at least one race.

Race Meeting Documentation and Information

Regulations for the 2018 season are being formulated and will be available, hopefully, by the end of the year.

Saker Double but Joe Spencer takes title at Oulton

Although the two Sakers triumphed in both the races with Paul Rose and Steve Harris sharing the wins, Joe Spencer in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki won his class twice and won the Championship outright for the second time with Iain Gorrie runner up in his Raw Striker. Congratulations from all at the North Western Centre to Joe on this achievement. The other classes were won by Paul Rose in Class A, Luke Armiger (Tigra) in Class B, Stuart Oliver (Impreza) in Class D, Piers Grange (Escort) in Class E and Iain Gorrie in Class F. Well done to all of the class winners.

Thomas & Rose dominate Anglesey

Both Oliver Thomas and Paul Rose took triple victories in the split grid races on Anglesey at the beginning of the month. Other class winners over the weekend of decidedly mixed weather, sun and torrential rain, were, Garry Watson, Luke Armiger, Joe Spencer, Steven Parker, Piers Grange, Richard Roundell, Iain Gorrie and Clive Dix. Joe Spencer took over the overall championship points lead.

Nicholas Bartlett wins Cam Forbes Trophy

At the recent Anglesey meeting Nicholas Bartlett was awarded the Cam Forbes Trophy for advancing the most from practice in the first two rounds. Dawn Forbes was present to make the presentation.

A double for Paul Rose in Donington

Paul Rose returned to the championship after missing the last Oulton Round with an emphatic double win in Donington Park. In both races he was slow off the line but within a few laps had regained the lead. Garry Watson would have given him a good run for his money but in the first race spun into the gravel on the first lap. Again there was an over subscribed grid, however with a few pull outs and mechanical gremlins all that turned up got two races.

Dave Harvey takes prestigious Dave Simpson Trophy

At Oulton Park in July the magnificent and prestigious Dave Simpson Memorial trophy was won by Class C driver Dave Harvey. This trophy is awarded to the driver that wins their class by the greatest speed differential. This year the trophy was taken by Dave Harvey in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki.

The Garry's take over Oulton

With the entry exceeding 50 for the meeting the entry was split into two races, one for modified cars and one for specials. Obviously Garry is the name to have as in the first race Garry Wardle came home ahead of Ilsa Cox with other class winners Robert Burkenshaw and Iain Gorrie. In the specials race Garry Watson led home David Harvey and Ric Wood.

Spencer wins twice in Cadwell Park

Joe Spencer continued his march to the title with two wins in Cadwell Park. There was again a capacity grid which resulted in some frenetic racing at this picturesque circuit. The class wins were shared between several drivers and all got back safely. See the attached report from Peter Scherer.

Rose takes two and Spencer one at first Anglesey Triple Header

Three totally full grids of 42 cars provided fantastic entertainment on Anglesey for rounds 2, 3 & 4. The CNC Heads entry was as large as at the season opener at Oulton and the fans were provided with just about everything they could want from a race! Paul Rose won two of the races though on the third he only managed the first corner before a driveshaft broke. This race was won by the ever fast Joe Spencer in his Locosaki.

CNC Heads Triple Header on Anglesey this weekend

This coming weekend, 21st/22nd April sees the first Triple Header in the CNC Heads Championship. A massive entry of almost 50 drivers sees the races moved to the International circuit to accommodate as many as possible. All the top runners are entered along with several regulars out for the first time this season.

Wardle & Rose take Race wins at Opening Round

Paul Rose and Garry Wardle took respective wins in the split Special and Modified races at the opening Oulton Park race meeting. In atrocious conditions all drivers got back successfully after their races. Other classes were won by Roddie Paterson, Joe Spencer, Steven Hibbert and Simon Sheriden.
