Birkett 2016 Entry Packs Now Available

Wed 15 Jun 2016

The Club is pleased to announce that entry packs for the 2016 Birkett Relay are now available on the website, and also that we welcome a title sponsor on board for this year's event. The '2016 Grove & Dean Motorsport Insurance Birkett Relay' will take place on 22nd October, once again using Silverstone's full GP circuit.

This year marks the 66th running of the event, which was the brainchild of Holland 'Holly' Birkett and is still the UK's largest annual motor race. He devised the concept that still remains in force today; where any car can enter and teams run the different vehicles in a relay format. Each car and team is suitably handicapped, meaning that Birkett teams are competing for both overall and handicap victory.

Grove & Dean offer insurance services for all as aspects of motorsport, from trackdays to storage/transportation and full race cover. What's more, being run by motorsport enthusiasts to serve motorsport enthusiasts, you can be sure of a team that understand the customer.

The 2016 entry cost is £1500 per team for the six-hour race, where entrants should have between three and six cars (closed wheel only), and between three and six drivers to be eligible.

All drivers must be a 750 Motor Club member (both at the time of booking and the race itself), and newcomers must apply online in the conventional method as per this link - entries will not be accepted with just the extra £20 membership cost added. There are 70 team places available and the event is usually full to capacity, so don't leave it too long to book your place.
