CLUBSPORT BASIC EVENTS

ClubSport events are competitions held usually on a road, circuit or paddock, where the placings are decided by the time taken to complete the course. Basic Events are those where competitors (including those new to motorsport) can complete without the need for specialised vehicles and expensive equipment. A competition licence is not required for any ClubSport Basic Events (with the exception of Regularity Trials), but after your first two Autocross or Single Car Standing Sprints you must be a member of either a Member Club or Associate Member Club (like us!)

RACING & RALLYING

Racing: A motor race is an event where many cars compete at the same time, with the aim of being the first car to complete the required number of laps. Races can be over a variety of distances, ranging from just a couple of laps, up to as many laps as can be completed in a 24 hour period. Although motor racing can never be truly cheap, racing needs not be expensive. It is still possible to race competitively in a car which you have driven to the circuit. Races may be held for specific groups of cars, based on engine capacity, make/model of car, type of car etc

 

Rallying: A rally event is made up of several high speed “Special Stages”. These stages can be held on public or private, sealed or unsealed roads (which are closed to the public) and each driver and co-driver competes, attempting to drive the distance in the shortest possible time. The role of the “Co-driver” is to read route instructions to the driver from a road book which details intersections and some hidden hazards on the course. The “Special Stages” in a rally are linked by “Touring Stages” which are the means of getting from one stage to the next, and are driven at normal road speeds and rules. Also very popular are “Targa” rallies which are run on sealed closed roads, and are predominately for Historic and Classic vehicles.
