It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s friendly, it’s cost effective… it’s the ETSL ST-XR Challenge!

With roots going all the way back to the 1980s, this long-standing home for Ford saloons has been providing fabulous racing at a reasonable price for many decades due to the fact that the series conforms to Group N regulations and uses Yokohama control tyres.

Our championship is accessible to those wishing to compete in a broad range of cars from Ford’s back catalogue. Click here for a list of eligible models.

For 2021, there is scheduled to be 15 races on our calendar and these will be staged at 6 different circuits. Click here for the full calendar.

Aside from the great racing out on the track, our meetings are also marvellous social occasions for all the family… You’ll find many BBQs taking place in the paddock.

We are delighted to welcome Evercold Technical Services Ltd (ETSL evercold.co.uk) as our Primary Championship Sponsors this season. They join a wide range of companies who support our series. Check out the Sponsors page for the full list.
