The Slip&Grip Sprint Series is a timed Sprint Series over 4 rounds. Cars are divided into classes depending on spec and engine size. The max number of cars per event will be 40 which should give enough cars in each class and enough track time for all competitors. Rnd1 is hosted at 2.2miles of Tarmac rally stage in Mid Wales and will follow the same direction as our Touge Trackday format events.

This series is designed for members to experience the next step up from our usual trackday format events but its very important to keep that great Slip&Grip friendly atmosphere. The Touge Sprints will mean that even the lower powered lighter cars will have a chance of all out victory with a good driver behind the wheel. The last round of the year at Castle Combe will be much faster.
