Saturday 7th/Sunday 8th May 2022 – Skegness – UK Open Championship
From Skegness Raceway
Welcome to the headquarters of the speedweekend at Skegness Raceway which runs more two-day events than any other UK short-oval. This may be the first BriSCA speedweekend of season 2022 but the team here have already been busy running events over two consecutive days and many of our domestic formulas and the Rebels have already enjoyed a Skeggy speedweekend experience so far this year.
Advance Tickets are available for the weekend only, individual days are only available on the day, cash or card. Weekend tickets will also be available on the Saturday. Advance sales will end at 12noon on the 6th May.
On Saturday night the BriSCA F1s are contesting the latest World Championship Qualifying Round in an effort to score enough points to be one of the top 48 drivers to earn a place in one of the World semi-finals. Just five points scoring opportunities remain after Saturday’s racing with two of those in Scotland before the final table is drawn up. Incidentally, the second World Championship semi-final is to be staged here on 13 August so make sure you have that date in your diary. Current World Champion Tom Harris is currently heading the standings with Ryan Harrison, Mat Newson and Frankie Wainman Junior next in line. Look out for the up to date points table elsewhere in the programme or on the BriSCA F1 website. One really good round can be enough to get you on the grid but obviously consistency over all the rounds will see a driver in a more advantageous position as the top points scorers are at the front of the semi-final grid.
Moving on to Sunday and we see the 2022 staging of the UK Open Championship for the Formula Ones. This is the first championship of the year for this formula and although not recognised by a distinct roof colour, it ranks in fifth behind the World, Points, European and British championships. It is still therefore a championship that everyone wants to win.
It is the 32nd staging with twenty- five of those being held here at Skegness. Current holder of the title is former 2L Saloon champion Shaun Webster who will doubtless be looking to repeat his triumph.
Action also comes from the BriSCA F2 Stock Cars and the National Ministox.
And don’t forget about our late night bar and disco with DJ Jake Harrhy!

We have no direct seating, large tyres are banked in on each bend which do create a seating area. You are welcome to bring your own chairs. The seaside end allows a great area for wheelchair viewing.
