Porsche Club Speed Championship

Speed ChampionshipThe Porsche Club Speed Championship is the perfect way to start in motorsport, without the cost or pressure of racing. For some competitors, the Speed Championship is used as a stepping-stone from attending track days towards actual racing, while other drivers stay in and enjoy the championship for a number of years.

Competition, value for money and a good social atmosphere are some of the key features of the Speed Championship as competitors race against the clock at circuits such as Brands Hatch and Goodwood, as well as at classic hill-climb venues like Shelsley Walsh and Prescott. The mix of disciplines sees all aspects of car control tested, the champion being the driver who performs the most consistently across all the venues.

Justin Mather clinched his first championship winning the 2013 Porsche Club Speed title the narrowest margin in his 2.5 litre Class Four 924S.

David Dyson wins first round of Speed at Croft

The first round of the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club Speed Championship with Pirelli took place at Croft Circuit on Easter Monday. What a great day it was too.

A good entry of sixteen competitors were greeted by what turned out to be a lovely sunny day which, although it threatened rain on occasions, stayed dry all day. In fact, with the benefit of hindsight, it was actually...

Tim Barber takes 2016 Speed Title

We entered the final round at Prescott with the Championship still undecided and the final championship positions still to play for. It was an inauspicious start to the competition, however, with a mix of drizzle and heavy rain throughout the entire practice sessions as the drivers cautiously completed the first two runs on a very wet and slippery track. As with last year, it was a strong...

All to play for with Prescott to go

The penultimate round of the 2016 season at Shelsley Walsh hill climb was, apart from overcast skies and cool temperatures at the very start of the practice runs, unexpectedly blessed with fine, warm weather. The warmth and a dry track meant that competition was close and fiercely competitive, with every potential point being vitally important for many of the competitors as we near the end of...

Curborough Sprint competing for Kerry Fisher Trophies

After two rounds of warm, dry weather it was perhaps inevitable that we would get some rain at our tenth Championship outing at Curborough Sprint. The competitors were fortunate, however, to get at least one timed run in the dry to provide some quick times, including a few class records on Curborough’s ‘figure 8’ layout. Twenty drivers entered this sprint – a venue made...

The Championship Hots Up After Goodwood

The Porsche Club Speed Championship was blessed again after Castle Combe with yet more warm, dry weather for the ninth round taking place on Goodwood Circuit. It was an excellent turnout also, with 22 competitors entered and enjoying a day of close, exciting competition.

It was the largest gathering of Class P1 cars we’ve seen this year, with nine drivers completing two practice...

Rose and Evans take class wins at Combe

The eighth round of the Speed Championship ran under warm, dry weather on the 1.9 mile Castle Combe circuit near Chippenham. Huge demand by various championships running on the day meant that not everyone got an entry at Combe and points leaders Adrian Rowlands and Justin Mather were among those denied an opportunity to add to their scores.

Despite drivers unable to get in, the Speed...

Darren Slater Takes Class Win at Harewood

Harewood Hill near Leeds provided the venue for our seventh round of the Porsche Club Speed Championship. Although some Speed competitors, along with the National Hillclimb Championship, endured rather wet and wintery weather (extraordinary for July!) on Saturday, for the official championship round on Sunday, the weather was much kinder. Although cool and a little damp in the morning for the...

Rowlands Edges Ahead in Title Race

Rounds four and five of the Porsche Club Championship formed a double header at Shropshire’s Loton Park, one of the UK’s longest and most demanding hill climbs, made more challenging over the two days because of changeable weather with a mix of showers, heavy rain and high humidity. Although relatively dry for the practice sessions, the afternoon timed runs got underway just as...

Anglesey Hosts Round Two of the Speed Championship

Rounds two and three of the Speed Championship were a great contrast over May bank holiday weekend at Anglesey Circuit. Saturday was cool but dry and bright but Sunday’s competition ran under cold, high winds and squally, heavy rain that did not subside until midday when the rain was replaced by sea mist and drizzle.
The sprint on Saturday ran on the shorter National circuit with...

Speed Championship opener at Croft

On March 28th the 2016 Porsche Club Speed Championship season kicked off with our traditional Easter Monday visit to Croft Circuit in North Yorkshire. Unluckily, this event also coincided with the UK’s eleventh named storm; Storm Katie. The worst of the weather had mostly dissipated by the time it reached North Yorkshire but it did leave Croft Circuit very wet and cold for the morning...
