The 15-min qualifying and three 20-min races will be open to production sportscars and roadsports, such as Mazda MX5s and Caterhams.

If you buy two races or more, you can have two drivers and there will be podiums in all three races.

There is also an allcomers Mini Enduro in the shape of “The Placement Group Full English Sprint” – a 20-min / 40-min one or two driver race with a mandatory pit stop. Read More »
