The Surgery Sprints

from 9:00 to 16:30

The Surgery Sprint Series has been a feature of the local club racing calendar for 20+ years now and for the last twelve years has been generously sponsored by The Surgery.

As far as motorsport goes it is fairly low-key, so is a great entry point for those who want to try their hand at motor racing. The format is simple: a pair of cars are released onto the track at 10-second intervals and they complete 3 laps from a flying start. Points are awarded according to the times each driver achieves and these points go towards individual and club prizes.

The requirements are also basic: road legal tyres, fire resistant overalls, helmet, a fire extinguisher fitted to the car with a metal bracket, a roll cage for all open cars and a Motorsport NZ Licence (day licences are available). Contact Surgery Sprints for the entry fee.

You don’t have to have a rocket car to enjoy yourself on a race track and slower, unmodified cars are more likely to score more points. So whether you have a Herald, a TR7 V8 or something you’d rather not admit to, come and discover the thrill of motorsport for yourself.

For more information please contact the event organiser directory via the website.
