How to Enter an Aintree Sprint

The entry list has now closed for the 24th April Aintree Sprint (we kept the list open for a few days extra to give latecomers a chance – we’re good like that!). But you can still enter our June & September sprints and the Barbon hillclimbs too.

Our plans are in place for a full season of events this year, as we try to get motorsport back on track at Aintree. We need the support of every competitor we can find to make 2021 successful and with your support we can do it. Will you join us at our friendly events at Aintree?

Our event regulations allow a maximum of 130 competitors per event at Aintree but, to comply with the landowner’s and Government Covid-19 social distancing requirements, we are likely to be obliged to reduce this number.
We recommend entering early to avoid disappointment.

As things change, MSUK will issue its updates at https://www.motorsportuk.org/restart

Please read: Questions about taking part in sprint & hillclimb events under Covid-19

IMPORTANT:
All competitors are asked to watch the 6-minute video HERE, before competing in an event.


How to send in your entry for an Aintree sprint:-

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

By entering, you agree to comply with our 2021 Supplementary Regulations, plus any additional provisions we need to introduce in order to comply with Motorsport UK Covid-19 guidelines.

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.  Then return here and click the button at the bottom of this page to enter the event(s).

There is no extra charge for paying online. The 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 nice friendly 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.

We include the full range of North & Midlands Classes at our events, as specified in our event regulations. To find out why we use these classes, see our History of the North & Midlands Classes and Clarifications.

2. Enter By post:

In accordance with MSUK Covid-19 requirements, we regret we are not currently accepting postal entries for our events. For now, all entries must be submitted online.

If you are unable to enter online, please contact the LMC entries secretary for advice. See the event regulations for his contact details.

Download and read the 2021 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 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)

Notes:

Camping prior to events

Covid-19 restrictions currently prevent overnight camping at events. We are keeping the situation under review in the hope that restrictions are eased in time for our next event, but 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 6.30 am 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!

Our events are also qualifying rounds of the ANWCC regional sprint championship, and the similar championship run by the SD34 Group. Visit their websites for more details..

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 £3,400 to the Charity. Let’s see what we can do this year!

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