Motorsport Classes for 2017

To keep up with BMW Turbo Charged cars 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.

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 6-8 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 C - Vehicle Data and Modification Sheet.  This is to be completed by competitors to determing 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 Supersprinnt lap times are used to determine Class place-getters for the event.
