BP Sprint League - Round 8
BP Sprint League (formerly the International Sprint & the Grand Prix League)
The Sprint League is a multi-ability event catering for all levels of experience. Novice or lesser experienced drivers compete within the “Clubman” class whilst “Pro” drivers are classified by weight, all three classes receive trophies for the top 3 finishers.
Racing takes place on the full International circuit using 390cc Sodi RT8 Karts.
Pro Class - 4* Graded Event
Clubman Class - 2* Graded Event
The Sprint League is all about short sharp racing. A practice session is followed by three point scoring minute heats for each driver and a final for the top scoring entrants. Trophies are awarded to the top three finishers in each class.
The minimum age to take part is 16 (16 & 17 year-olds must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 plus). No previous driving experience is necessary to take part in the Clubman Class. However, in order to compete in the Pro Class previous racing experience is required.
The total time at the circuit is approximately 4 hrs from your arrival to departure.

The “Pro” Classes of the BP Sprint League forms an 8-round Championship, of which the best 6 scores count. The “Clubman” Class is non-championship and welcomes one-off entries. It’s the ideal class for drivers looking to gain experience in the Sprint format.
The Pro Classes are run in two separate weight categories: Light (<85kg) and Heavy (85kg>). Both weight classes will share the grids but have their points allocated separately. The Clubman Class does not have weight classes.
