Descriptions, regulations and registration for the Roadsports formula.

The Cartek Roadsports Series

The CARTEK Roadsports Series is for production cars with engine capacities of 4.0 litres and below. Roadsports is designed to offer competitors a great deal of freedom in tuning a performance sports or saloon car, whilst at the same time providing a framework to ensure the racing remains cost effective.


Production cars will be in four classes by (flywheel) power to weight

A - Super GT - 300bhp/ton

B - GT - 250bhp/ton

C - Supersport - 200bhp/ton

D - Sport - 160bhp/ton

The lowest class restricts modifications, but the class structure allows people the opportunity to tune their cars.

Races are 45 minutes plus 1 lap with a compulsory pit stop, and optional driver / car change.

Entries may comprise of either:

1 1 driver in 1 car
2 2 drivers sharing one car
3 2 drivers with 2 cars running in a "relay" team.

Pit stops may be taken between the 15th minute and 30th minute of the race duration. During the pit stop the car must remain stationary for a minimum of 1 minute, refuelling is not permitted. For drivers competing in a relay team the second car may leave the pits after the first car in the team has spent one minute stationary in the pit lane.

Cars finishing in the Top 3 in class will receive a time penalty for the next race, which will be served at the time of the mandatory pit stop:

1st place: 15 seconds
2nd place: 10 seconds
3rd place: 5 seconds
