New Intro-Class for Sprints

February 18th, 2021 • By: Chairman Aintree, Events, News, regs, sprint, Uncategorized

To help encourage drivers new to Sprinting, Motorsport UK has announced the Intro-Class, an additional category under the Standard Production Car heading.
The class is designed for absolutely standard 2 wheel drive road-going cars manufactured after 1/1/2000, with engines of under 2 litre. Race suits and gloves are not compulsory, and only very minimal changes to the car are allowed.
Whilst Standard Production Car regulations still apply, drivers can compete in Intro-Class on an RS Clubman licence, which is currently free.

Drivers intending to compete in the Intro-Class should note that their cars must comply with all of the regulations S11.1 to S11.4 for Standard Cars (see below), and also regulation 8 of the Supplementary Regulations for LMC events which states:
SR8:  Times recorded by cars in the Intro-Class will not count towards any championship.

2020 Membership extended

September 6th, 2020 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, sprint, trackdays

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, Liverpool Motor Club was unable to run any events in 2020 at either of our Aintree or Barbon venues.

As a gesture of goodwill to our members, we are extending, without charge, current membership of the club by a full calendar year.  For example, a 1 year membership subscription expiring 31st Dec 2020 will now expire 31st Dec 2021 and a 3 year membership will be extended using the same principle.

Anyone joining the club after 1st August 2020 will also have their membership subscription extended as above.

Members won’t need to do anything to renew their membership and we won’t be issuing membership renewal letters this year. Instead, we will forward a new membership card to every member shortly.

Should you have any queries regarding your membership please contact the Membership Secretary via the link on our Contact Us page.

Thank you for your continuing support and we look to seeing you at our events in 2021.

Peter Ibbotson, LMC Membership Secretary
