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.
