Exciting new development for the GTROC. Watch this video!

Link to Video:

2014 GTROC Sprint Series Promo - YouTube


Hopefully the video will have given you an idea of an exciting new series for 2014.
I recently had a meeting with Darin Frow of the Mitsubishi Lancer Register, they have been running a very successful Sprint Series for the last seven years, during this time a few GTRs have entered in the Guest class however GTROC and Darin would like to set up a proper series for the GTROC. The Evo series will continue but if we can get enough people interested Darin will run a second day at the same venue for GTROC members. You could also do the previous day in the guest class if you wished. Hire of circuits is very expensive so it is likely the second day will also feature entries from a Porsche club, I am sure there will be some healthy competition between the GTROC and the Porsche owners!
Currently we are looking at three circuits, these will probably be Snetterton, Blyton and Castle Combe, the other circuits on the one day events are likely to be Oulton, Kames, Hethel and Teeside. Entry fees are going to be around £130 per meeting and Iain Litchfield has kindly agreed to sponsor the series with some trophies for each round and an end of season award. He will also have a Litchfield technical support team at each round.
I have discussed with both Iain and Roger a class structure, it was felt that the R35s should have a Stage 4 plus downpipe limit to try and keep costs down and road tyres only to be used, no super sticky sprint slicks. The Skylines should be capped at 600 Flywheel BHP.
If you would be interested in getting involved in this next year please add your names to a list below, obviously this will only run if we can get enough entries to cover the cost of hiring the circuit for a second day.

Having been involved with the MLR sprints for years, it would be great to see the GTR series take off.
Whilst most people are a bit worried about how they will fare in competition (normally because of bruised egos ) I dont know anyone who hasnt been hooked after giving it a go. Pannels for the GTR are a bit more expensive than an Evo haha! But accidents are very rare and you an normally get full insurance through Pace Ward.

Great to chat with you Barry and really pleased this is moving forward I have spoken to Darin a few times about it and think its a great way for owners to ease themselves into competition.

We look forward to supporting the series

Regards

Iain

Think this has answered my any more power question if it's capped to stage 4.

Cooling and seats it is then :-)

Jason, for the sprints standard gearbox cooling will be fine as you are only on track for a relatively short period of time in one go.

Was getting 100c on engine and trans temps at the last sprint. I know it's a god bit under the " start to worry" limit still didn't like seeing triple figures. Hahaha.

Some new seats then ;-) or maybe litchfield suspension......

This is very interesting, I was thinking about sprints& hill climbs a couple of months ago, but thought you needed to go through the steps to get a race licence.

Would this be the case here? Or as its a closed event/series, rules are different?

No special licence needed, just a road licence.

I think Flynn will do this again too, and if Lawsy buys another he will too.

Flynn will have to join GTROC and I think Shane is getting a hard on over CSLs again.

What are the noise limits for these circuits likely to be?

Also what kit is needed? I assume just a helmet and towing eye?

Have done two seasons of the MLRSS in the GTR already. Great fun, and very well ran. Some seriously quick cars compete

Put a deposit on a forged GTR today, so I'll be ready for yers

Edit: Just watched the vid. Not seen many vids of me at the sprints Where did you get them from?
