Sprints and Hillclimbs

The club runs two main types of competitive events during the year, both of which contribute towards championship points.

Up until 2018 the club ran only Hillclimbs but in 2018 and 2019 we have had the pleasure of running our Summer Classic Sprint at Kirkistown race track and are continuing to build upon this and grow the event more each year. As well as this we run the Historic Croft Hillclimb

Where can I find technical regulations for Sprints & Hill Climbs?

Technical regulations for Sprints & Hill Climbs are found in section S of the Motorsport UK Yearbook. Specific event or Championship regulations are found in Supplementary Regulations (SRs) made available by the organiser.

 

What safety equipment needs to be fitted to my car?

It is possible for a standard road-going production car to be used in Sprints & Hill Climbs without any additional safety items. Modified production cars, or specialist Sprint or Hill Climb vehicles are required to be fitted with a Roll Over Protection System (ROPS), details of which can be found in section S of the Motorsport UK Yearbook.

 

What personal protective equipment do I need to wear?

As a minimum you will be required to wear a helmet, flame resistant overalls and gloves to approved standards. Details can be found in section S and section K of the Motorsport UK Yearbook.
