Ian Hulett WSM Sprint Sprint 2

Entries are now being taken from historic racers wishing to drive on the ‘Racing Runway’ and ‘Sprint Strip’ at Sywell Classic: Pistons and Props.


Individuals and clubs are welcome to express their interest to the organisers who will then review the applications and offer free invitations to create a diverse racing spectacular for enthusiasts to enjoy.


Sywell Aerodrome’s taxiway is transformed into the ‘Sprint Strip’ where dragsters and motorcycles burned up the tarmac. The mile-long main runway, with its smooth surface and high grip concrete, became the circuit with a right hand bend, long straight with midway chicane and 180 degree hairpin before a flying finish.


Each car taking part in the demonstration, which is run in accordance with MSA requirements relating to sprints and hill climbs, gets two runs per session, with two sessions per day. There is also evening refreshments and entertainment.


For those that want to make a weekend of it, camping is available with two nights camping, staying Friday and Saturday night with live evening entertainment on Saturday night in Hangar One.


Those interested in taking part should contact
