How to Enter an Aintree Sprint

Our secure online entry system is currently closed and will reopen early next year for our 2021 Aintree Sprints.

Coronavirus : All 2020 Aintree sprints are cancelled.

Because of a whole range of difficulties connected with the Coronavirus pandemic we have not been able to run any of our 2020 motorsport events.

We aim to bounce back with a full season of events next year but it is becoming clear that life will be quite different in 2021. Several familiar aspects of motorsport will have to change to make events comply with various Covid-19 requirements. This is likely to include online declarations to cover signing on and scrutineering, enhanced social distancing, and possibly non-spectator events. No doubt other measures will be introduced as rules are revised with the benefit of experience.

It is difficult to know precisely how these measures are likely to affect our events so, for now, we are leaving our 2020 event regulations unchanged until such time that we have a better idea of what amendments we need to make, but you can be sure that we will continue to do everything possible to run a full season of safe, enjoyable events in 2021.

For the latest guidance, please see MSUK’s Covid-19 updates at

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 our 2020 Supplementary Regulations, plus any additional provisions introduced in order to comply with  Motorsport UK Covid-19 guidelines.

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 £115, and for LMC members is just £112. Both entry fees include the Motorsport UK insurance fee of £27.50

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 further down 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 online 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:

In accordance with MSUK Covid-19 requirements, we are not currently accepting postal entries for any of our events, all entries must be submitted online (as above).

Download and read the 2020 Supplementary Regulations including Postal Entry Form. 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 online via our membership page.  Or you can complete a membership application form to send to us with a separate cheque for £10.00. (Link currently disabled)

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

HM Government’s Covid-19 restrictions are currently prohibiting overnight camping at sporting events. We are keeping the situation under review in the hope that restrictions are eased in time for our next event, but clearly we cannot guarantee this. If camping is allowed, it is unlikely that toilet facilities will be available overnight.
Competitors are welcome to camp or park overnight on 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 arrive by 9.00pm at the latest as the venue gates will be secured promptly at 9.15pm 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.

Our sprints comply with the North & Midland Recommended Classes and Clarifications
Over 20 years ago, 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.

Don’t forget, if you are taking part in events in addition to those at Aintree, you could be eligible for an award by joining the Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship – the Best in the North West!

Live timings are normally available during the Aintree events from Resultsman

Invited Championships

See our Club Calendar page for the latest list of championships taking part in our sprints & hillclimbs.

Insurance whilst competing

Your existing car insurance policy will not cover you whilst competing so, unless you take out specialist cover, you will be on track entirely at your own risk. There are several providers of motorsport cover and whilst we don’t recommend any particular company, drivers tell us that they have been pleased with the service provided by the following:-

REIS Motorsport Insurance – Click below to visit their website


Moris Motorsport Insurance – Click below to go to their website

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 or more 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. Since we started supporting NWAA in 2014, our drivers have donated a total of £3,356.69 to the Charity. Let’s see what we can do this year!

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

Charity No. 1075641
