Saturday 23rd April 2022

CSCA Round 2, SMSP South Circuit

Hosted by the Sprite Car Club of Australia.

Please note, this is not a State Supersprint and MCC members won’t have to compete amongst people vying for a State Championship, the Combined Sports Car Association are the traditional marques that Mini Car Club of NSW used to compete amongst, I believe the Mini Car Club was a member of the CSCA at some point in the past.

The South Circuit is short and twisty, which should suit a Mini, but members are free to run any vehicle of their choice; it doesn’t have to be a Mini.

Below are the supplementary regulations and other documents for the Sprite SMSP Supersprint on Saturday, 23 April.

Entries are now open for CSCA Round 2 hosted by SCCA on Saturday 23rd April. Please find the invitation letter attached.

 

Entry is via the MA Event Entry system and is now operational.

Please note the following:

  • Minimum License Requirements, remain as L2S. I noticed that when I did a dummy entry, the MA Event Entry System says that a Non Speed license is ok, this is incorrect. Apparently these licenses have been discontinued by MA – they are investigating the glitch in the system.
  • Self Statement of Vehicle compliance.  Please complete and send to the Event Secretary at time of entry by email tocaptain@spriteclub.com
  • Self Checklist speed.  Please complete and send to the Event Secretary at time of entry by email to captain@spriteclub.com

 

For any questions please contact the Sprite club Competition captain or Phil Boyd (Mini Car Club) 0412 521 058
