Our first Evening Sprint!

Our first ever evening sprint takes place on one of the best circuits on the sprint calendar - Teesside Autodrome - on Saturday 21st May and will run from 15:30 to 22:30. We'll have floodlights in place at the circuit for the evening, but please make sure both headlights are operational

What is a Sprint and how is it different from a track day?

You do timed runs over a section of the circuit, with cars being released onto the sprint runs at timed intervals. A sprint is competitive but you'll have more of the track to yourself to focus on your time!

The Course:



Red = sprint course
Green = return to paddock after Finish


Practice and Competitive Runs:
We'll aim to give all drivers a minimum of 10 runs on the afternoon/evening with a possible maximum of 16 available (depending on time etc). Everyone is welcome and GTRs will run in the Guest class, alongside the four Evo classes as usual.

Sorry guys, but with only 11 bookings we didn't have a choice. As ZedEd has already said though - the Teesside round has been rescheduled for Saturday 22nd October so will now be the Sprint Series Final, so we're hoping for a great turnout and fitting end to the 2011 Series :)
