WMR _ Winton Sprint Series Round 13

Winton Sprint Series Continues

This Saturday, the ‘Nation’s Action Track’ Winton Motor Raceway will host Round 2 of its Sprint Series. The Winton Sprint Series commenced on April 6th to great success with 48 cars in attendance.

It is a great club-level start into motor racing, giving drivers an opportunity to drive their own cars at pace, without the risk door-to-door contact. The Winton Sprint Series has been running for over 30 years, and sees drivers racing the clock against other competitors in similar vehicles.

Each driver competes in five four lap Sprints, to complete the technical 3.0km Winton Motor Raceway in the quickest time possible, watch some clips here. Before the event commences all cars are checked for eligibility in the class. If they don’t fit, cars will be re-classified and placed in the appropriate class at the discretion of the Clerk of Course. On track activity this Saturday will take place from 9am until 5pm.
