Saturday 25th April
Entries now open on Fabian4
Think you have the speed to win a sprint? Lets find out if you do after four punishing rounds.
In collaboration with Nottinghamshire OC we are bringing you the UK's first ever knock-out sprint. The day will start with a qualifier that places you into the seeded quater-finals of 6 runners each.
The quater-finals are when you will get your first experience of Runners' Choice™. Runners' Choice™ indroduces a forked element to split runners up in the fairest way possible.
There is no actual knock-out but promotion and relegation between rounds to ensure everyone gets multiple runs.
After lunch the semi-finals and grand final will take place. To ensure full-gas racing throughout the day the Strain Sprint Scoring System (SSSS) will be used to award bonus points and calculate the overall winner. More details will be provided once the system is ratified at the upcoming Cambridge Convention.
There will be two categories
The first start of the qualifiers will be 10am, with 20 minute walk from race HQ to the start.
Prizegiving and conclusion of racing will be about 4pm.
Entry is now open on Fabian4, closing 14th April. There will be NO entry on the day.
Juniors and Students £6
Due to the nature of crossing roads in the area no U16s allowed.
