British Endurance Championship and Britcar

Britcar is an endurance racing series formed in 1997. The aim of it’s conception was to bring a 24 hour racing event back to Britain. For many year the famous Britcar 24 hour(made famous by top gear) was a blue ribbon event of the British racing calendar. After the ownership change hands in 2016 the 24 hour Britcar race was disbanded, but the series continued with a clear aim, cost effective endurance racing.

Britcar weekends are 1 day events to keep the cost of the meeting down, because of the high grid numbers britcar spilt the grid, in so creating the Britcar Endurance and Britcar Trophy . The Britcar endurance races are open to gt cars, The Britcar production races are open to sports and saloons.

A change for 2022 is Britcar endurance championship has been renamed to the British Endurance championship (BEC) has it is now Motorsport uk sanctioned endurance championship. Also for 2022 is a change in format for BEC switching for 2x1hours races to a mixture of 1×2 or 3 hour Races.

After a successful Campaign in 2018 where Reflex ran the ex Rob Austin Audi btcc where we were firmly at the sharp end on the championship standing(3rd in overall championship after 6 rounds).

In 2020 with our new Ligier JS2R we completed in the endurance championship, despite missing the opening round we finished the season as class champions and 5th overall in the standings behind the top class machinery.

And in 2021 we’re Trophy class 3 champions.

We at reflex Racing feel that there is unfinished business with britcar and are looking to support drivers for a successful overall championship bid in 2022. We have arrive and drive packages available in both BEC and Britcar trophy as well as run customer owned vehicles.
