750MC Relaunches Roadsports

Thu 18 Oct 2012

The 750 Motor Club is to relaunch its Roadsports category in 2013 as a series of mini-endurance races. The Donington Park-based club, which ran the class as a successful championship from 1981 until 2006, will be making a departure from its usual format of sprint races for the first time.

The races will be 45 minutes long and include a compulsory pit stop, with options for one or two drivers to compete in one or two cars. Entry fees will start at £275 for the series of six races, which will take in major circuits such as Donington Park, Silverstone and Snetterton 300.

"We've made the decision to re-launch Roadsports in place of our MR2 Super GT category,” said 750MC Competition Manager Giles Groombridge. “It will be aimed at production-based sports cars, organised into three categories based on power-to-weight ratio. As well as MR2s, we aim to attract cars such as Mazda MX5s, Lotus Elises and Porsche Boxsters. The lowest class will restrict modifications, but the class structure will allow people the opportunity to tune their cars should they wish."

Regulations for the new series will be available from the Club shortly and potential competitors should register their interest by e-mail to racing@750mc.co.uk or by visiting the Roadsports section
