The JSCC (Junior Saloon Car Championship), with the BARC, ran for it’s first year in 2014 with 14 rounds over 7 weekends, and again in 2015 & 2016 rounds over 8 weekends, at national circuits including Snetterton and Brands Hatch.
It runs with healthy grid numbers and with the trophies presented by local celebrities, the competitors have enjoyed the opportunity to meet: Freddie Hunt (son of British F1 World Champion James Hunt), BTCC driver Adam Morgan, Le-Mans driver Mike Newton, and WTCC driver Tom Chilton.
The JSCC bridges the gap between karts and cars, offering drivers between the age of 14 -17 an opportunity to get behind the wheel of a hatchback and compete on national circuits, all at a fraction of the cost of other comparable championships.
As we look forward to 2017, the JSCC is looking more promising than ever, with more cars in build to promote grid numbers and corporate backing to promote the profile. Keep an eye on this championship, and watch out for the stars it produces!
The JSCC took over a former championship of 2013 which was the proving ground for a number of competitors who have then gone on to have success in other things as they became able to compete in senior championships, after reaching the age of sixteen. These include Daniel Brown who is a Ferrari GT Racer, Leyton Clarke who went on to win the Dunlop SportMax Championship and competed against fellow, driver Abbie Eaton, as well as regular Renault UK Clio Cup competitors Aaron Williamson, James Colburn, Ant Whorton-Eales and, James Dorlin, and Ben Colburn (Brother of James), and Josh Cook in the BTCC.
