We’ve received well over 500 entries for our 2021 Aintree Sprints and Barbon Hillclimbs!

We are having to restrict numbers to comply with Social Distancing requirements, so if you wish to take part, don’t delay – book today!

12th June Barbon Hillclimb entry list is closed.
26th June Aintree Sprint entry list is closed.
3rd July Barbon Hillclimb is full and the entry list is closed.
4th September Aintree sprint is receiving entries much earlier than normal 

It’s great to see such interest in our events after last year’s enforced shutdown. Welcome back everyone!

You can enter our events online with our quick & secure booking service. It’s the simple and safe way to enter our events – no paperwork involved!

Just click here to be taken to the Aintree Sprints Page for more details or here for the Barbon hillclimbs.

Enter online and 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. And if you wish to enter more than one Aintree sprint, you can use the same on-line form without entering all your information again.

Don’t delay though…. some events may be full well before the closing date, so send in your entry in plenty of time!

Why not join LMC too?

Members of LMC are entitled to a discount of £3 off the entry fee for each of our events. 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 allows you to select from over 20 rounds at 8 of the most popular Sprint and Hillclimb venues in the North, North Wales, and Midlands.

And, whilst you’re taking part in our speed events, you could be gaining points for one of the Association of North Western Car Clubs championships, &/or the SD34 Motorsport Group’s Sprint & Hillclimb Championship. See the links on our Aintree Sprints page.

Results for the 24th April 2021 Aintree Sprint

April 24th, 2021 • By: Chairman Aintree, Events, News, Results & Reports

We’re back!! It was fantastic to be back at Aintree after a 19-month break due to Covid-19, and although the event was closed to spectators, the 103 drivers and their teams enjoyed a great day’s motorsport, with two practice runs, and 5 qualifying runs on a beautiful sunny day.

The results for the Aintree Sprint held on 24th April can now be downloaded by clicking on the link below:-

Full Results April 24th, 2021.
Practice times (some data lost/incorrect)
Timekeeper’s data log (for info only, not be taken as definitive results)

A fully customisable version of the full times is also available at Resultsman.co.uk  where you can select the times for just one car or a group of cars.

Unfortunately, because the “Continental method” of lining up the cars was used for reasons of Covid-safety, none of today’s times will stand as new class records, but well done everyone for a great day’s motorsport.

We include a time for the first 64ft off the line as a time of 2 secs to the 64 feet mark equates to an acceleration of 1G.

Professional photographers Anthony Mitchell and Phil James were both out on the course for most of the day:

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.
