Dont know where to post this so I'll put it here....
Thinking about doing some sprinting with the GTR :cool: . Looking on RAC MSA site and it seems there are a few different licences for sprinting...Speed national or race national etc.
Those of you who compete, what licence have you got??

I have a non race national B , I used to rally a mk2 Escort in a Tarmac Championship for a few years,although for this licence yo'll need to spend £400 ish on medicals, paperwork and friving tests etc. My wife has a lesser licence (Cat B or something)that she used to navigate with me, as far as I'm aware this is all you need for sprinting and hillclimbing, the rules on prep etc are a lot lesser with sprinting(u can enter a standard road car for some events).

Get it done and get out there, blows Santa Pod and trackdays out of the window!

Dave Wilkins is your man to ask if you want to go sprinting as he's already doing it with a national "B" license which was about £32 per year if i remember. that covers you for hillclimbs and sprints plus you need to join a local msa affiliated club as a member.

I have a Race National B, if you get a 'go racing' pack from Demon Tweeks it will give you all the info you need :) I just renewed my licence and think it was around the £40 mark. then you need to join a local club, mine is the HSA, and they will let you know what sprinting is on. I will be doing the Aldon Automotive Speed challenge in 2007.

sprinting is the cheapest way in for racing and lots of fun.

sounds interesting!

ok, so you have to join a local club i understand. what are the rules if you setup one of these clubs yourself? i might be interested in doing this! how much money (if any?) does the club owner has to pay a year? if its not to much i might set my own club on with a small forum orso...maybe.

also, do these licenses affect your own license (and possibly your insurance) in any way? that might be a stupid question but interesting to know:)

Thanks guys for the info. On the subject of approved clubs I see the GTROC is listed on MSA site so thats the first hurdle crossed :clap:
Was thinking of going for the Speed National 'B' which should be appropriate. I used to have a competition licence years ago when I used to compete my MKII RS2000 in forest stages back in Scotland....Seems things havent changed that much in terms of licence application etc. Thankfully MSA HQ is about a mile from where I live so there really shouldnt be any excuses :D

If you want to do sprints/hillclimbs I think its the race national b you need to go for.

re setting up your own club, not sure what you need to do, maybe best contacting the MSA direct

For sprinting you require a national non race B licence.(no medical required)
You need to join a club that takes part in sprinting. As a member of an active club you will get 'invitations' to enter MSA affiliated club events in your region.

Must have MSA approved crash helmet & race overalls, car will be checked over for safety and compliance for the class entered. plus it will be checked for noise.
