SSCC Bent Sprints

 

Time to get the team together and have an event where EVERYONE can compete in. It doesnt matter if you have a RACE car, RALLY car, CLUBSPORT car, or are borrowing nan's shopping cart. The bent sprint is the perfect event to get a wide variety of cars together. There may be some surprising results! 

 

The plan of action is like this:

1: Set up an open but technical course using our sweet facilities. There are a tonne of options to do at the track if we look at starting locations, running direction. Each event will have a different course which will test your skills in different ways. 

2: After an indian file familarisation run you will get 4 timed runs to smash our your best, but it doesnt stop there

3: The top ten compeitiors based on overall time will have their times wiped off the board (sorry guys!), but you will battle it out in a top ten shootout. Not only do you have to be fast, but you have to be consistent. The time you get in the shootout is what will count for the event. 

4: Prize giving and a yarn so we can all discuss the mods before next event! It can get incredibly competitive. 

 

The basic requirements are that you need to have a car up to schedule A, the driver needs a motorsport NZ licence and the driver will need to hand over $70 for a cheap day of motorsport fun. Most bent sprints involve road closures making them considerably more expensive.

Event sign in will be 9.00am to 10:30am which gives a bit of time for out of town people to travel in the morning. Then the event will kick off at 11am. Competitor numbers will determine the finish time but around 4pm is anticipated.

We ran a bent sprint as part of the ClubSport Nationals, so check out this video below and picture your (insert NZV8, EVO rally car, Formula Ford, Corvette, Corolla, Nan's Getz, etc) hooning around a track like this. Just you and your car going 100% for that ultimate time. 

SSCC CLUBSPORT CHAMPIONSHIP

Ever wanted to have a go at motorsport???
This is where it all starts - Basic entry-level motorsport, in your own road car.
Test your skills against the clock in two fun events - Motorkhana and single car sprints.
 
Motorkhana: Tight course around cones against the clock. Three challenges, each competitor has three attempts at each challenge with their best times being added to a total. Motorkhana is well suited to small nimble lower powered cars and helps a driver develop precision car control.

Sealed Sprint: Speed event, typically 1-2 minutes in length racing against the clock. Drivers get an 'indian file' familiarization run followed by three timed runs. Fastest time counts.
Due to the higher speeds reached in a sprint vehicles are required to be fitted with a fire extinguisher and drivers are required to wear fireproof (100% cotton is fine) overalls and a helmet. Helmets may be hired from the club.
