Can you use your road car for hillclimb and sprinting ?

I have been asked quite a few times about using a standard road car for hillclimb and sprinting. There are classes in most championships that are just for standard road cars, which means that for a small financial/time outlay you can be competing in motorsport. I have put a link at the bottom right of the Sprintspeed home page to the TR Register motorsport section which contains information regarding getting started. For those of you who are members of the TDC there is very good article in the November 2019 issue of Dolly Mixture by Shaun Roche, giving all the information required to get you and your car up to scratch. 

Do it once and you’ll want to go again and again and again …………….

End of the 2019 season

That’s it then for another year of motorsport in my Sprints, well not so much Sprints as Sprint, as the Blue Sprint is still in my garage with the O/S/R wing cut off and the boot floor in need of repair. I didn’t do much in the White Sprint, after thinking that I would try to do 5+ events in the TR register / Revington TR Hillclimb and Sprint Championship and a few races I think I managed four sprints. Did a few track days though which helped towards getting the car set up. Plans for the winter are … get the bodywork on the Blue Sprint finished and build a proper engine for the White one.

As far as Sprintspeed is concerned there are a couple of new parts in the pipeline, which hopefully will happen early next year. And get the cars out more …..
