WHAT ARE SPRINTS?
You can run anything from an ordinary roadgoing saloon (with no special equipment or tyres) to a full blown single-seater race car with the ‘full package’.
MAC has a reputation for putting competitors first and our friendly efficient officials make participating in an MAC event a pleasurable occasion.
Our Sprints take place at well known venues – all different in their own way. Sprints take place on flat, sealed surfaces with one, two or three cars running at any given time. There are normally two practice runs in the morning and two timed runs in the afternoon. There are also some events that have a handicap system to allow disadvantaged cars (power or age related) to have a chance of winning their class.
There are many classes to suit all types of car and all types of drivers including novices and first-timers. MAC is always happy to guide new competitors from enquiry through to their first event including obtaining their first Competition license and the process for this.
In 2016, The Midland Automobile Club introduced a brand new championship, The Sunrise Sprint Championship, with eligible rounds at all of the MAC Sprints. The Sunrise Sprint Championship will again be running in 2017, please click below for all information about the Sprint Championship.
