Entries are open for all our Sprints & Hillclimbs

By Chairman • February 28th, 2024

We’re still accepting entries for our Aintree Sprints and Barbon Hillclimbs.

For information about the Aintree Sprints, go to: https://www.liverpoolmotorclub.com/aintree-sprints
Or for Barbon Hillclimbs go to: https://www.liverpoolmotorclub.com/barbon-hillclimb

Like many motor clubs since the Covid-19 restrictions, our events are not attracting sufficient competitors to cover the cost of running them, so we need your entry to help keep motorsport alive at Aintree.

We hope you will join us in 2024.  Sadly, the message is simple, use it or lose it!


The cost of running our sprints has risen dramatically in recent years. It now costs nearly £14,000 to stage a sprint at Aintree once you include circuit hire, medical cover MSUK event fees etc. And we have to pay for any track repairs on top!

Divide those expenses by the entry fee, and you will see that we need 110+ competitors to break even. Last year we averaged just 82 competitors at each sprint, so you can see we ran 2023 at a loss.

The venue hire at Barbon is not quite as costly, so we’ve managed to keep the Barbon entry fee a little lower again this year.

We know that nearly everyone is finding balancing their finances difficult at the moment. Liverpool Motor Club is run entirely by volunteers and does not benefit from any external funding. So, to continue delivering our high-quality events, we’re sorry but we’ve had to increase our entry fees again this season.

Please spread the word that to keep running motorsport events at Aintree and Barbon we need every competitor we can find. As we’ve said above ….. Use it or lose it!
