What is Sprinting?


For many the first foray into competitive motorsport, and one that requires a little more preparation than Autosolos.

Hill Climbs and Sprints are two very similar disciplines of motor sport. Events take place on smooth prepared surfaces and are solely a test of a driver’s ability on setting the fastest time over a measured distance.  The only general difference is that generally sprints take place on flat venues such as airfields whereby Hill Climbs, occur on hill courses of varying gradients.

You are not wheel to wheel racing as each car starts separately, although there may be up to three cars on the course at any one time.  The majority of events see a wide variety of cars compete, from single-seaters to standard production saloons, divided into classes by types and engine capacity and forced induction weighting. In general whatever type of Lotus you have, in whatever state of modification and tune you will be able to compete.

Venues range from disused airfields to permanent racing circuits and from picturesque private estates to seaside promenades.
