Intermarque Sprint Series 2012
The Intermarque Sprint Series has been a feature of the local club racing calendar for 20+ years now & for the last few years has been generously sponsored by The Surgery.
As far as motorsport goes it is fairly low-key so is a great entry point for those that want to try their hand at motor racing. The format is simple: a pair of cars is released onto the track at 10 second intervals & they complete 3 laps from a flying start. Points are awarded according to the times each driver achieves & these points go towards individual & club prizes.
The requirements are also basic: road legal tyres, fire resistant overalls, helmet, a fire extinguisher fitted to the car with a metal bracket, a roll cage for open cars & a Motorsport NZ Licence (day licences are available). There are more details here. Entry fee is just $70.
You don’t have to have a rocket car to enjoy yourself on a race track & slower unmodified cars are more likely to score more points. So whether you have a Herald, a TR7 V8 or something you’d rather not admit to, come & discover the thrill of motor sport for yourself.
