The track we use is the Grand Prix Circuit only. There will be 6 “runs” for each competitor. A run is 3 laps of the Grand Prix Circuit. Groups of up to 14 cars.
Each group gets an Indian file (warm up lap) to the start line – cars will then be flagged away in pairs – min 5 seconds apart for 3 laps- chequered flag finish with a cool down lap back to the pits.
Run 1 and 2 will be dual car circuit sprints. This is “qualifying” and these will be used to establish GRIDS for Multi-car sprints.
Multi Car Sprint grids will be based on a competitors best lap time. The fastest 6 will be Grid 1, the second fastest 6 in Grid 2 and so on.
Second Drivers (Shared drives) will be placed in the best grid position possible allowing for driver change times or in the Dual Car competitors group to enable the day to be run efficiently. Dual Car competitors will be run in their own group in an order most beneficial to the efficient running of the meeting.
Any competitor who fails to complete the 2 runs of Dual Car Sprints is unable to compete in the Multi-car format runs 3 to 6. However, competitors allowed to continue in the group that will continue under the Dual Car Circuit Sprint format.
Runs 3 to 6 will be Multi-car Sprints for 6 car grids (2 at a time starting at least 10 seconds apart).
There will be a second briefing after this ‘qualifying’ to inform you of groups, give you grid positions and explain starting flags/lights and starting procedures etc.
Those who: A) wish to carry passengers, B) wish to continue in the Dual Car format, C) 2nd Drivers of Shared Cars and D) fail to complete runs 1 and 2 will be in a group of up to 12 which will complete runs 3 to 6 in the Dual Car Circuit Sprint format.
Multi-Car Championship: Results will be finishing positions (of each driver, in order of passing the finish line) of their group which will go towards an overall results table).
This will be done for each Multicar sprint – so up to 4 per event.
These will then be split into class, and the total carried on for each Multicar event.
Points will be given the same as the current CCC Speed championship.
After the series year, the results will be tallied and the most points from a driver will win their class. And the most points from overall will win the inaugural Multi-Car Championship Class.
Prizes (or trophies TBC) will also be given to those first in Class 1,2,3,4,5, road-class or Pre-90s. (The winner of the overall prize isn’t eligible for their class prize).
