Despite the easing of restrictions resulting from the Covid19 pandemic a significant number of planned Championship rounds have either been postponed or cancelled.
In addition, some of the venues are struggling to re-open and so finding replacements for the postponed events will be difficult, if not impossible.
We have held off on making a decision about what to do for the remainder of the season until it was clear what Motorsport UK’s decision would be on allowing events to run and which events could actually run. In between times we have had representation from competitors making their views known.
Taking all factors into account, the organisers have taken the decision that the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club Speed Championship with Pirelli will not run in 2020.
We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused by this decision, but it would not be possible to run a championship with a suitable quantity of events, or with an acceptable balance of hillclimb or sprint meetings.
Under normal circumstances the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club Speed Championship with Pirelli is an ideal route into the world of motorsport, and less costly and pressurised than racing. For some drivers, the Porsche Club Speed Championship is a step-up from trackdays and a route into racing, while others enjoy mastering the hills and circuits over many seasons.
The Speed Championship combines the disciplines of hillclimbs and sprints with entrants competing against the clock and against each other within their classes.
Competition, value for money and a good social atmosphere are some of the key features of the Speed Championship. The Championship runs over 12 rounds, split evenly between sprints and hillclimbs on a mix of purpose-built circuits, airfields, classic hillclimb venues and even the odd stately home.
The cars are divided into four classes, determined by horsepower, and allows entry for a standard road car or a lightly modified Porsche or, indeed a highly modified, specialised hill climbing car or circuit racer. This is a well-supported, competitive Championship which provides both close competition and the opportunity for a ‘toe in the water’ of the world of motorsport.
