Want to drive a car fast without getting a ticket? Want to see what your car really does in straight line? Want to see if you have what it takes to drive a car around an International circuit at speed? Want to see if you have the skills to take a part time hobby into something more serious?
Our Circuit Sprint events is where you can show up once you have the necessary licence / membership to give it a go. Countless have started here (and still race here every month) who have gone to Club Days, National race meetings, Hillclimbs, Street Sprints, the lot.
Dual Car Circuit Sprints consist of being split into groups of 6-8, heading out onto a course (for example the GP circuit with no dipper), having a warmup lap, then coming to a halt on the grid. You are then flagged away in pairs, with the next pair starting 10 seconds behind you, and so on. You get 3 laps with a standing start then the chequered flag. You then have one warm down lap.
You then get a second go (same as above) on the same course and the best time out of those 2 courses will get carried through to the overall result.
You will then repeat all of that on at least 3 separate courses – meaning you will do heaps of laps on the day! Excellent value for money.
Some events are run as a Multi Car Sprint.
2x runs are Dual Car and used as qualifying.
Further runs are small grids up up to 6 cars, seeded fastest to the front.
Dual car runs are also continued as an option for people who prefer this method
