Drivers must be 16 years of age or over, and under 18 stone (114 kg) in weight.


NEW: Individual Endurance Championships

We have two new Open Race Championships in 2022 - both are endurance races for individual drivers:

3S 20 Championship

The 3S 20 is open to drivers with or without previous experience. The race format consists of a 10-minute warm-up/qualifier followed by a continuous 20-minute race. The championship is run over four rounds with the best three to count (if drivers are equal on scores, the last round result will decide the winner).

Championship points are scored for each round, and the top three drivers for each round will also receive monetary vouchers towards their next race entry fee (1st: £30, 2nd: £20, 3rd: £10). Trophies will be given at the end of the championship, along with 1st, 2nd and 3rd monetary vouchers with the same value as above.

  • Price: £49 per person per round.
  • Rounds: 4 (best 3 to count for championship).

3S 60 Ironman Championship

The 3S 60 Ironman is not for the faint hearted (previous experience is required). The race format consists of a 10-minute warm-up/qualifier, followed by a continuous 60-minute race. The championship is run over four rounds with the best three to count (if drivers are equal on scores, the last round result will decide the winner).

Championship points are scored for each round, and the top three drivers for each round will also receive monetary vouchers towards their next race entry fee (1st: £30, 2nd: £20, 3rd: £10). Trophies will be given at the end of the championship, along with 1st, 2nd and 3rd monetary vouchers with the same value as above.

Race briefing

Championships: four different formats of open races run on set nights of the week that you can book onto individually (for the Sprint and the two Individual Endurances - 3S20 and 3S 60 Ironman). All of these races form part of their own championship. They give you the chance to hone and test your skills against others and are perfect for those drivers that love the excitement and competition of out-and-out racing.

The Sprint Championship

The Sprint Championship is open to drivers with or without previous experience. The race format consists of a 5-minute warm-up, two 8-minute heats and a 10-minute final. The championship is run over eight rounds with the best seven to count (if drivers are equal on scores, the last round result will decide the winner).

Championship points are scored in the final of each round, and the top three drivers for each round will also receive monetary vouchers towards their next race entry fee (1st: £30, 2nd: £20, 3rd: £10). Trophies will be given at the end of the championship, along with 1st, 2nd and 3rd monetary vouchers with the same value as above.

  • Price: £59 per person per round.
  • Rounds: 8 (best 7 to count for championship).
  • Format: 5-minute warm-up, two 8-minute heats and a 10-minute final.

Drivers are welcome to enter individual events and not take part in the championship if they so choose.

The Team Endurance 120 Championship

The Team Endurance 120 Championship is open to drivers with or without previous experience. The race format consists of a 20-minute warm-up followed by a continuous 2-hour race. The championship is run over eight rounds with the best seven to count (if teams are equal on scores, the last round result will decide the winner).

Each event is open to a maximum entry of 20 teams with 2 to 4 drivers per team. To be eligible to compete in the championship, at least one original team member must have raced in every event, and any substitutions must have raced in at least two rounds to be eligible for the end-of-season championship awards.

Championship points are scored for each round, and the top three teams for each round will also receive monetary vouchers towards their next race entry fee (1st: £30, 2nd: £20, 3rd: £10, per team). Trophies will be given at the end of the championship (drivers must have taken part in at least 3 rounds to be eligible for trophies), along with 1st, 2nd and 3rd monetary vouchers per team with the same value as above.

Make sure to pick your team name prior to the first round!
