Supersprint Competition 

Supersprinting is timed motorsport – not door handle to door handle racing.

To make an interesting and competitive Supersprint Competition our BMW cars have been divided into 9 classes plus 1 class for all non BMWs. We then compete for points in the annual competition of 7 rounds to win trophies presented at our annual dinner. To gain points in this competition you must compete in more than one round of the competition. 

Philosophy: The objective is to define a set of classes for cars of similar capability so that these classes have 8 to 10 regular competitors making for a genuine contest over a complete year. This requires support from you, the club members who compete, to keep the classes going and the competition fair. You should not hesitate to contact a Motorsport Committee member to discuss where your car fits into the class structure. In the rules there is an Annex C2 - Vehicle Data and Modification Sheet. This is to be completed by competitors to determine your cars correct class.  

It is up to each driver to disclose on an honesty basis, the modifications made to a vehicle to determine the appropriate Competition Class.

The Motorsport Committee will observe performance and review the classing for all cars. If your latest modification results in you overtaking cars that you could never catch or your lap time has dropped without explanation then expect to be reclassified so that you are competing with other drivers in cars of similar performance.

For safety reasons, classes will not represent the groupings for cars running together on the race circuit. During morning practice or the first Supersprint session lap times are used to determine speed related groups. Only Individual's Supersprint lap times are used to determine Class place-getters for the event.

Motorsport Classes for 2017

To keep up with all new BMWs being Turbo Charged we have updated the BMW Drivers Club NSW Supersprint Regulations for 2017.  

Please download the regulations, read and understand, download Annex C2, complete it and email it to  or hand it in at the next supersprint event.  Without your Annex C2 we are unable to include your points won to the correct class in our annual Supersprint competition. If you don't submit your Annex C2 we will assume that you are not competing in the competition. If you submitted an original Annex C then please update it to the Annex C2. There is expected to be an Annex C3 as we refine the Supersprint Classes for 2017.

MotorKhana Championship

This is a two event series conducted on the smooth, wet and slippery surface of the Sydney Motorsport Park Skid Pan. The challenge is to drive a course of traffic cones in the shortest time. This is a fun event and drivers gain car control experience in adverse conditions without damage to their cars. Great for new drivers.  

 

Driver Training and Introduction to Supersprints.

Each year we run driver training at the Marulan Driver Training Centre. This is especially good for new drivers and is a great starting point for anyone who would like to get into our Supersprint events. We start the day with a theory session then lots of laps by yourself or with an experienced coach. Experience your BMW on a small race circuit.

 

Nulon Nationals

The Nulon Nationals is a multiclub motorsport event sponsored and run by Nulon. 2017 is the first year our club has entered this competition that pits 14 clubs against each other to battle it out over 4 different motorsport disciplines. Each club enters 4 cars for each event and the top 15 cars in each of the four classes (AWD, 2WD Forced Induction, 2WD <3.4L and 2WD >3.4L) earn points for their clubs.
