Teesside Owner Driver Sprint
In 2023 the Teesside Owner/Driver Sprint was the biggest year yet with an average of 110 drivers at each event, competing in 9 classes across seven grids. Our newest classes grew round on round, with racing becoming more exciting as the drivers gained experience of the long Teesside circuit. We will be looking for sponsors for the 2024 live stream - if you're interested please contact the office.
2024 will be 9 rounds over 7 weekends with two double header weekends in July and October. We will be introducing a new IAME Bambino class at all rounds, 2024 will see the end of the 2022 Mini Max class, with the Inter Max taking it's place - we will need 15 championship entries for these classes to run in the Summer Championship - please register your interest.
