For those who don't frequent 1200.com...here are a couple of pics taken atthe supersprint held at Oran Park on the weekend. Track was pretty wet, and looked very slippery

Benny Coming out of Suttons....
Image

Benny 'v' Commodore....the commodore won the drag off the line (just) but Benny got him with a great move out of Suttons on the first lap.
Image

Some sideways fun out of Suttons....
Image

More Sideways Action......
Image

Waiting for another run....
Image

Eventually the guys had a run together...it was pretty close.
Image

Overall...it looked a very good day. Number of entries seemed a bit low, which meant lots of runs for those who braved the weather. :-D

are you racing each other here, or are you racing the clock?

The cars are started together - 2 at a time. Technically you are racing the clock, but when two cars are pretty evenly matched.....it is a lot of fun.

Some people do call them circuit sprints, some call them super sprints.....maybe we should just call them sprints to avoid the confusion ;)

You need a L2S licence, but you do not need a logbooked car ( to my knowledge). As long as it passes scrutineering...your away.

As an aside...I did my CAMS medical this morning (and passed - phew)...sent my paper work off this morning for my circuit licence, previously know as C3, know called a PC (Provisional Circuit). Aiming for our first State level Race Meeting on 9/10th April.

Team_Dat,

I assume they are running in what is called Type 3 in "sprints" world. Type 3 is very close to Improved Production rules.

Not 100% sure if they go into the Sprints stuff.....but if you built it to class 3J (IPRA) specs you would be fine.

Appendix J would be more like type 1 or 2 I would think.....No mods or limited mods.
