Wombwell Sprints

2020 Round 2 – Wombwell Sprints Saturday 2nd May 2020
Circuit - Wombwell

Wombwell is around 800m of beautifully smooth tarmac, mixing a variety of corners and three main straights. The circuit is for the most part, not massively wide, especially past the pit areas, so driving skill and traffic management is necessary.

There are 3 x 2 Hour Sprint Races, run in both directions. Starting grid is based on championship position for race 1 and then finishing positions of previous race for the other races.

Sprint races are scored as follows. 1 point for each win, 2 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd etc with lowest combined total at end of day wins. If there is a draw then the win is awarded to team with highest finishing position.

Further information

Wombwell Sprints

Motor vehicles are allowed onto the main kart circuit for unloading / loading only, subject to the usual walking pace speed restriction as at all races.

You must ensure you DO NOT DRAG anything across the tarmac – please ensure trailer legs are retracted and secured, nothing is hanging down and dragging from your car or van, you don’t drag heavy toolboxes around, etc.

You MUST NOT stray onto the model car circuit (the twisty sections on the infield) as this does not have foundations capable of supporting the weight of a road vehicle (including trailers).

On all counts, South Yorkshire Kart Club have very kindly permitted us to use their very nice and VERY EXPENSIVE tarmac and we must not damage it.

Generators in the pits are permitted provided you also supply suitable fire fighting equipment. There is no official noise restriction but please respect the fact this race is in a residential area on a Sunday, so it is only polite to keep noise to a minimum, especially in the early morning.

The car park is publicly accessible from the adjoining footpath so please ensure your vehicles are locked and don’t leave any valuables on display, just as you would in any public car park.
