How to Enter an Aintree Sprint

The entry lists are closed for our 2018 Aintree Sprints.
We hope you’ll join us on 27th April, 29th June and 7th September 2019.

We are leaving the following information here so that if you are thinking of competing at Aintree in 2019, you can get an idea of what’s involved. The 2019 regulations and classes are likely to the same as the 2018 regulations shown.

There  are two ways of sending in your entry for an Aintree sprint:-

1. Enter & Pay with our secure on-line service:

By entering, you agree to comply with the 2018 Sprint Regulations.

If you’re not an LMC member, you can still claim the member’s discount by joining the Club. Just complete the online membership application form here:- Membership – Join Us (opens in a new window).  Then return here and click the  button at the bottom of this page to enter the event(s).

There is no extra charge to pay on-line, whether or not you have a PayPal account. The on-line entry fee is £110, and for LMC members is just £107.

You can enter more than one sprint at the same time without having to input all your details again. Please ensure that you tick the correct box(es) on the booking system to avoid entering the wrong event.

To enter online, just click on the BUTTON at the bottom of this page.

Why enter on-line? You’ll avoid the risk of postal loss or delays, you will receive immediate confirmation that we’ve received your entry, & you don’t need a stamp or envelope!
We use PayPal to process our on-line payments, but you don’t need  PayPal account – you can pay using your usual credit or debit card without additional charge.

2. Enter By post:

Download and read the 2018 Sprint Regulations including Postal Entry Form (link currently disabled). This version includes the postal entry form and a membership form (if you need one). You can enter more than one of the Aintree Sprints on the same form.

Complete the entry form for the event(s) you are entering and post it to us, together with your payment. This method is slower, as you are relying totally on the postal service. If you are reading this you must have internet access, so why not use our on-line service to ensure we receive your application without delay –  it’s secure and available 24/7.

If you’re not an LMC member, you can still claim the member’s discount by quickly joining on-line via our membership page.  Or you can complete a membership application form to send to us with a separate cheque for £10.00.

To download the forms you’ll need a recent version of Adobe Reader. If you haven’t got this, you can download it free from Adobe’s website.

Why not enter on-line? You’ll avoid the risk of postal loss or delays, you will receive immediate confirmation that we’ve received your entry, & you don’t need a stamp or envelope!


Save money and join LMC!

If you enter any three LMC events (sprints, hillclimbs or trackdays), your total discount almost pays for your membership. Enter a fourth event and you are in profit. And membership entitles you to join our popular Speed Championship that takes in over 20 rounds at 9 of the most popular Sprint and Hillclimb venues in the North, North Wales, and Midlands.



Camping prior to events
Competitors are welcome to camp or park overnight on the Friday evening, free of charge. Be aware that facilities are basic, there are no power or water hook-up services on site, but toilets are available. You should aim to arrive by 9.00pm at the latest as the venue gates will be secured promptly at 9.30pm and will not re-open until 6.30am on Saturday morning. There is no vehicle or pedestrian entry or exit between those times.

Requirement for towing points:
(All classes). Cars shall have suitable towing point(s) clearly identified and suitably marked using a contrasting colour, accessible from the front & rear.  The roll hoop will generally suffice for open single seater and open sports racing cars.

Our sprints comply with the North & Midland Recommended Classes and Clarifications
In 2009 LMC led a review of the plethora of event rules then in existence and developed a set of standard classes for Speed events. Our aim was to encourage competitors new to the sport with easily understood descriptions of a Standard Road Car whilst making the rules clearer for existing competitors and scrutineers. Since 2009, the clarifications have been further refined following very positive feedback from competitors.
Who is using these classes?
With very few exceptions, all clubs in the North West, North East and Midlands use the classes listed.  Some organisers add extra classes or amalgamate classes to accommodate local practice. The structure is voluntary so whilst we have requested that all clubs/championships keep to the same class numbering system, we cannot compel them to do so. If you find a club or championship that is not using the new structure, why not strongly suggest to the organisers that they adopt it, for the good of all competitors?
We believe that the only clubs in the North & Midlands that are not using our clarifications are those with events at Prescott, Shelsley & Loton Park.

North West Air Ambulance

We are supporting the North West Air Ambulance Charity again this year. We hope you will support them  too by adding £1 to your on-line entry as your donation to this extremely worthwhile charity that receives no regular support from Government. Or simply donate whilst signing-on at one of our Aintree events.

One day you may need their help, right now they need yours.

Charity No. 1075641
