Following a successful development year within the MSVR All-Comers series, Z Cars Racing will launch as a standalone series in 2019.
Under the fresh new management of Coupés and Convertibles Racing (CCR), the series will cater for three varieties of BMW’s Z models.
The entry level Z3 (1.9 litre) class will provide the perfect starting blocks for new and aspiring competitors, offering a fun but cost-effective way to get started. The mid-level 2.2 litre Z4 offers a more dynamic challenge with its six cylinder power plant, while the top level 230bhp, 3.0 litre Z4 offers near GT car levels of performance.
With plenty of cars and parts available, plus the convenience of bolt-on panels across the range, you can rest assured the racing will be as affordable as possible. In fact, a Z3 build can be completed for as little as £6500.
The series will visit premier UK circuits, including Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Cadwell Park and Donington Park. Z Cars Racing will also be a key feature at MSV’s Deutsche Fest event at Brands Hatch, where the drivers will tackle the tight Indy circuit. The provisional dates for 2019 are:
- 14 April – Donington Park National
- 18 May – Cadwell Park
- 15 June – Snetterton 200
- 6/7 July – Brands Hatch Indy (Deutsche Fest)
- 29 September – Donington Park National
- 20 October – Snetterton 300
Each round will comprise a 15 or 20 minute qualifying session and two 15 or 20 minute races, with qualifying and racing on one day where possible, to help keep costs low.
