Sprinting Events Dates and Locations

Filed under: Sprinting |

Spotlight on SprintingSprinting and Hillclimbs come under the banner of Speed Events, several Championships run at various circuits/locations thoughout the country during the year. Most have easy access for those who want to watch a days motorsport for very little or no charge; organisers and drivers are available to discuss their cars and the reasons they enjoy being part of this sport. Several Championships are instigating the ‘Sprint Buddy’ idea to help guide new drivers through their first few rounds, or until the time is right to go it alone.

If you would like to get involved the first step is to attend a local event and talk to people around the paddock; They don’t bite! In fact this type of Motorsport is just about as friendly as you can get. You will need to work out the class you and your chosen machine would be best entering. The cost of car preparation and requirements of safety equipment, tyre types and engine modifications will be different in various classes. Race Licence requirements also vary depending on class chosen, my advice don’t sit down with the rule book straight away, go to an event and talk to the people who know and want to help you get out there.  The Championships ask local clubs to organise the day, so you will need to join your local Motor Club and they will help you select the Championship best suited to you and distances you want to travel to take part. Below is a list of Championships that have approached  offering help and advice to any prospective Sprinter.
