MANAWATU CAR CLUB ANNOUNCES THE ROADMARKING SERVICES SUMMER RACE SERIES 2013/14
Following on from the Manfeild Winter Series - one of the most successful club race series in the country - the Manawatu Car Club is pleased to announce a new series for club racers to be run over the summer of 2013/14.
Using the same one-day format as the winter series, the events include five classes: the RS Cup (“real slow”), SF Cup (“slightly faster”), IB Cup (“in between”), GT Cup (unlimited) and the European/Classic Cup. The grids will be based on lap times and all “saloon” race cars are welcome. Each class will have qualifying, a scratch race, reverse top-ten race and a handicap race, as well as an optional one hour enduro which is open to all entrants.
Discounted entry fees will be available to Manawatu Car Club members and Taupo Car Club members, with an additional discount for those who enter (and pay for) the whole series up front.
The organisers are expecting strong interest from club competitors who would normally park their cars in the garage during the summer months.
Drivers must have a minimum of a C1 (national) Race licence and the appropriate safety equipment, but a rollcage is not required for the RS cup to encourage new competitors to try their hand at motorsport.
Three rounds will be run at Manfeild, with a fourth round at Taupo Motorsport Park run in conjunction with the Taupo Car Club. The first two Manfeild rounds will be back-to-back with Road and Track Sprint Series meetings (no licence required) and the Taupo round will have a full test day prior to the event.
This year’s series is supported by Roadmarking Services, Jacksons Transport, Inspection and Consultancy Services, Coresteel Buildings, Feilding Auto Electrical, Diamond Homes, Danny’s Auto Services, NZ Refrigeration, Specialised Auto Parts, KLM Carriers and BC Racewear.
