I’m a new guy I guess but I’ve been around on SELOC etc for quite a while where I post as Black Potato. For my sins I’m currently a director and responsible for the Sprint series amoungst other things which brings me to my reason for posting. Poor show to be touting on my 1st post but times running a little late for the 1st event and we are short a few cars so I hope I dont offend anybody by doing so…
I was wondering if anybody here fancies trying sprinting there car in a friendly club atmosphere.
If so I’m currently running a series of sprints at North Weald this year (Near Stansted air port). The overall event is being run by Borough 19 which are a well known motor sport club that runs a formal series each year, however this year SELOC the Lotus Enthusiast club is running 3 groups on the day for cars with the Elise/vx220 chassis and as such the groups are far more suited to our cars and your unlikely to get mashed by motorbike engined Caterham’s as often happens in open series.
All this said the day isnï¿½t restricted to these cars and there are several other groups that cover every thing from single seaters to Turbo nutter cars.
On the day you need 3 things, a crash helmet, a fire proof suit and finally a license. The license can be obtained on the day.
There is a bit more info below and loads more at the following link, however if you are interested donï¿½t hang around as the 1st event is on the 9th April. All the days are run on a non profit making basis by the club.
Its free to sign up on the forum and only takes a few seconds…
