After a successful conclusion, the AROC Sprint Series returns in 2011. The series offers a cost effective and easy way to bring your Alfa Romeo to the track and compete against other drivers in an informal, friendly and competitive series. The championship will be run as a series of events focusing on grass roots competition with minimal risk on circuits around the country.
The format comprises of drivers running a set number of timed laps, similar to the way in which a super pole/special stage rally is run. The classes and regulations are structured to encourage standard road cars into the event, as there is no roll cage, race seat or fixed fire extinguisher requirement for the standard/classic classes. Allowances have been made so that heavily modified or race prepared cars can also be entered, so if you have a race car tucked away, why not brush of the dust and get it out on track.
Support and advice will be given to all competitors in order to ensure that the whole experience is enjoyable as possible as well as helping those new to competition/sprinting to get the most from the series.
Registration for the 2011 sprint series is now live and the form and full details can be downloaded at: aroc-uk.com/motorsport/.
The series offers the Alfa Driver the unique opportunity to put their Alfa on track and compete against other drivers for the Sprint Cup trophy. No experience is necessary and yes you can enter your road car into the series with little or no modification, so what’s stopping you from finally putting your Alfa on track where it belongs?
