Teesside Owner Driver Sprint
In 2019 the Teesside Owner/Driver Sprint was the biggest year yet with an average of 90 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. NRG Cycles allowed us to share the racing with viewers from around the world by sponsoring our sprint races with a live stream at every round of the summer championship - you can take a look at 2019 racing here > Alpha Live. NRG Cycles will also be sponsoring the live stream for 2021.
