As in the 116 Trophy, the Sprint series car is the BMW 116i, an agile, fun and forgiving race car. Selected for their abundance in the second-hand market, affordability of donor cars and parts and ability to be competitive to experienced drivers, while remaining accessible to novices.
The modifications made to the car are minimal, affecting only the roll cage, race exhaust, suspension change, ECU and tyres and are the same as those used on the Trophy and Coupe Cup cars. This keeps the cost of modified parts down and means that the vehicles are eligible to be raced in multiple events – giving drivers more ‘bang for their buck’.
Our standard format provides drivers with an average of 45 minutes of track time per event, consisting of a 15 minute qualifying session and two races of 15 minutes each.
The objective of our series is to maximise track time and enjoyment while keeping motorsport affordable for our competitors.
We strive to ensure that all of our series are as accessible and inclusive. We cater to novices and those on a budget, with experience, support and advice readily available from the series organisers, as well as a depth of expertise our teams provide. Whether you need car building services, race preparation and set up or you’d like to start your racing journey through arrive and drive.
