This is for entry into the PM sprint session only, the AM trackday session is a separate listing

You must be an entrant on the PM sprint to enter a vehicle into the AM Trackday

Before entering this event please make sure you have read through and comply with the regulations as specified on the RULES, IOPD & RUNNING tabs above

Venue :  Blyton Park
Layout :  Outer Circuit (1.6 Miles)
Format :  Sprint, 1 practice run, 3 or more timed runs
Noise :  105dba Static, 92dba Driveby
 
This is your chance to try out one of our popular sprint events on this day with a trackday in the morning and a mini sprint in the afternoon. The sprint is intended as a taster for those who’ve never tried it before so we encourage those who have been on the fence to come along and give it a go and get some experience of fun entry level motorsport. We make it as open as we can for people to take part, as long as the car passes the safety requirements which 98% of trackday capable cars will do you just need a licence which is as simple as filling in a form online prior to the event. The one lap format means that stress on the vehicle is keep to a minimum and with vehicles being set off at intervals you’ll be away from other vehicles on track meaning your daily road car can even take part. Up to 3 drivers can share the same vehicle but each driver needs an entry.
 
We aim for a minimum of 3 timed runs on the day (the first run is untimed) but will fit in as many as the entry/schedule permits. Vehicles are divided into classes for this event but these are purely for reference and to allow us to group the vehicles properly. Full timing results will be available throughout the event and afterwards but there will be no awards other than bragging rights for the event. Vehicles are split into class and run once per run in the specified order so there will be apporximately 30-40 minutes between runs over the afternoon. Vehicles are set off with a gap of approximately 20-30 seconds between vehicles
 
Ensure that you have read through all the tabs at the top of this section before entering the event to make sure you and your vehicle comply with the rules.
 
Competition Licence* – An IOPD Licence is required to take part in our sprint events, see the IOPD tab for details on how to purchase one.
 
Competition Plates – Each competitor will be supplied with a set of competition numbers for the event at check in which must be displayed on each side of the vehicle throughout, these competition plates will be approximately A4 in size. In the case of a shared vehicle it should be clearly indicated which driver is in the vehicle by marking the unused numbers with tape.
There will be a total of 13 classes on this event but they are purely a guide to help us split vehicles by performance to ensure the event runs efficiently as there are no awards given.

Drivers complete a Vehicle Safety Declaration as part of the online registration process before theevent. It is the drivers responsibility to ensure that the car fully complies with the safety regulations for the event when completing the VSD. We will carry out visual inspections through the event to check vehicles comply. Any vehicle that does not comply is subject to removal and no refund will be given.
 
Roll Over Protection

Entrants are required to be in possession of a valid 2024 IOPD Competition Licence. Either a 2024 Annual Pass or a 2024 Day Pass (MSUK licences do not count).

2024  - £25 Annual Pass, £15 Day Pass

An IOPD licence can be purchased directly from the IOPD website but day passes are only available within 2 months of the event date.

https://www.iopd.org.uk/?page_id=92

Purchasing an annual pass will cover you on our sprint events, you will be posted a Licence card which you can then display at events so please order these no later than one week before the event to allow for postage.

Purchasing a day pass will require you to specify the individual event and will then email you a code of the licence with a licence code contained within. We advise that you order this by at least the Friday prior to the event so that you may still contact IOPD directly should there be an issue with the email delivery. If you cannot present the confirmation email with the licence code and specifying the correct event then you will need to purchase another, we cannot accept a licence for an incorrect event or the payment receipt on it's own which is why we advise you to ensure you've got it during the week before rather than at the weekend when IOPD will not be available.

Timing
Runs will be timed to 1/100th of a second. Timing will consist of a start & finish beam that will record signals whenever a vehicle passes through with cars set off at 30 second intervals. Your time will start when you break the start beam and end when you cross the finish line with two display boards showing your number and run time after the finish.
  
Penalties
Circuit limits are defined as up to the white lines at the edge of the track and the kerbs, beyond that will be counted as having left the track and your time will be voided. Similarly hitting any track furniture i.e. cones will result in a void run also. The painted run off areas can be used but two wheels must remain within the white lines of the circuit at all times.
 
Running Order
Drivers will participate in the current run in turn before moving onto the next so each run will take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete with each driver running once. The running order will be in  class order and (in theory) number order. So A1, A2, A3, A4, B1, B2, etc. It is the drivers responsibility to ensure that they are ready and arrive at the holding area at the appropriate times. If a driver has an issue that prevents them from running significantly out of sequence then they must get approval from a Javelin staff member to do so. Anyone attempting to gain an advantage by running out of sequence i.e. drying track/potential shower will forfeit that run.
 
Impeded Runs & Reruns
If you encounter another vehicle on track then you should continue at competitive speed until you are a few seconds behind them and it is no longer safe to do so. You can finish within a few seconds of each other and times will still be counted but if you are impeded by another vehicle before that point then you will be entitled to a rerun. Similarly if you encounter circuit furniture in your path that was moved by a vehicle in front you will also be entitled to a rerun.
 
Occasionally we may ask you to take a rerun due to a timing issue but most times can be recovered in the event of a problem however please note that the display boards do not keep up with changes on the computer so an odd display on there does not always mean there is a problem with your time, just check on live timing once back in the paddock and listen out for any paddock announcements.
 
Results
Results will be available throughout the event using our live timing service which you can find by visiting www.javelinsprintdays.co.uk and looking on the main menu.
 
On Track Signals
When you are out on track you may see red and/or yellow flags or lights if you see either then you should immediately abandon your un and slow down being prepared to stop at any point as there is an incident on track so your path may be blocked and/or there could be marshals/emergency vehicles on track, be aware emergency vehicles can come from any direction. Both the red and yellow signals have the same meaning on sprint but a red signal would usually indicate the incident is more serious. If you see either of these signals (and you are not the cause!) then your run has been compromised so you should re-join the queue for a rerun.
 
Incidents on Track
If you suspect at any point that you are dropping fluids then pull over onto the grass and signal a marshal do not continue on track. If you have an incident where you leave track the please continue at speed for the rest of the course (providing it is safe to do so) so as not to impede the vehicles behind you. You will be able to pull off track using the normal circuit exit on the 2nd layout should you encounter a problem. If you do have an accident whilst on track and cannot continue then get out of the vehicle and get behind a solid barrier until marshals are with you. If you have a fire then get clear of the vehicle straight away, marshals will likely be on the scene before you can put it out yourself so get to safety first.
