Mere days after the Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres reached its exciting conclusion, organisers are delighted to announce the provisional 15 round calendar for the 2022 season – with both Oulton Park and Anglesey returning to the schedule.
Again featuring no fewer than three visits to the championship’s spiritual home, Brands Hatch in Kent, the 5/8 scale Legends Cars pocket rockets will also head to Donington Park, Snetterton and Pembrey over the course of the season which runs from April to November.
Starting off at Oulton Park on Saturday, 2nd April, with a one-day meeting – the championship’s first visit to Cheshire since 2018 – the Legends Cars will then make their maiden trip of the year to Brands Hatch a fortnight later, the first of five events supporting the British Truck Racing Championship.
On 7th/8th May the Legends will again support the BTRA at Pembrey in South Wales, with a return to Brands Hatch Indy Circuit coming over the weekend 11th/12th June as part of the huge American Speedfest 9 event.
Just one week later, the UK’s best big grid racing will travel back to Wales but this time to the North West tip of the country with a welcome return to Anglesey, on the Isle of Anglesey, for the first time since 2019.
Following a two month summer break from action, the Legends Cars will resume the 2022 season at Donington Park in Leicestershire alongside the behemoths of the British Truck Racing Championship on 20th/21st August.
The final two race meetings of the season, also alongside the BTRA, will take place at Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk on 17th/18th September and Brands Hatch Indy Circuit over the weekend 5th/6th November – the traditional venue for the championship finale.
With a fabulous capacity entry projected for next season too it looks set to be another classic year of Legends Cars racing, and championship owner Phil Cooper is delighted with the provisional calendar which has been achieved for 2022.
“We’re very pleased to be able to announce next season’s calendar so soon after the conclusion of the 2021 season, and looking forward to eight weekends of fantastic Legends Cars action”, Cooper commented, “Importantly, we feature at five of the British Truck Racing Championship events and also race again as part of the huge American Speedfest at Brands Hatch, always a fantastic occasion.
“Everyone will be looking forward to returning to Oulton Park, where we begin the new season at a one-day meeting, and it’s also wonderful to be returning to Anglesey as well which has long been a favourite of the competitors. With a capacity grid expected, we can’t wait to get started!”
