Just an update, ARDS passed today at Oulton Park. Done very professionally, I had David Hart who certainly went out of his way to put us at ease and help where he could.

It doesn’t matter how easy people tell you it is (and it is pretty easy!) I was still quite anxious going into it. I had David for the track part too, he was great and barring a couple of not so smooth gear changes he was quite complimentary. In the end it went from a let’s just get this over and done with approach from my part, to quite an enjoyable evening and he told me I certainly wasn’t wasting my time which was nice!

Back onto the racing, I’ve thought about it long and hard and I’m going to be having a crack at RGB. Maybe not every race next year as I want to do some testing and track days to familiarise with the car first, but I’ll be out there at some point thumbup cheers all

Class R, whilst there’s some changes such as to the weights I’m not convinced there’s much benefit from me buying and entering a class F car as a newcomer.. I hope I’m wrong though. There must be loads of people out there with class F cars that just aren’t bothering to enter.

Can always do bikesports or OSS with a rear engined RGB car too, albeit with the addition of slicks & aero. So it’s a safer investment IMO.

Big Bump!

I’ve been looking at the 750MC, in particular the Roadsports, and wondered if people had anything else to add in the three years that have passed since this thread was last posted in.

I am still enjoying racing in sports 1000, formerly RGB

A great formula, proper sports prototype racing cars on a realistic budget with regards to the running costs with our control tyres/limited sets per season, standard superbike sealed engines etc.

The only thing that comes close is bikesports or f1000 (formula jedi) but people are running massively tuned engines and slicks cost a fortune. So for me Sports 1000 is a no brainer for anyone who wants to race a proper racing car (i.e. not a stripped out road car) without breaking the bank.

Here's my pole lap from Anglesey last time out

Roadsports is excellent. Great value for money, big grids, excellent driving standards and a very friendly paddock.

I don’t think any club in the UK offer better value for money than 750MC.

As above really. I've raced with them numerous times in Roadsports and enjoyed it immensely. I've also been racing in the 116trophy this year and it has been exceptionally clean.

Sounds very promising. I’ll have to find time to make it to one of their events.

Yep, great series. I raced most RS from 2014-17 plus bits since. Big grids, well policed and a friendly paddock.

I can’t make Snetterton but I’ll see what I can do about Donington.

The big grids are part of the temptation and the amount of track time you get for the price seems pretty unrivalled. I’ve had a look at the results from the last couple of years and they regularly have 40+ grids. Many series claim to have good participation, but really they’re just counting those who only do one race in a season. I’ve also watched bits on YouTube and it is a good mix of cars, which makes a nice change to all the one make championships out there.

Doing Roadsports in my 116Trophy car at Snetterton.

The 116 Trophy is worth looking at as well. 30 car grids this year, will be 40 next. Single make so Racing is always close. 90 minute race with 25 minute qualifying for £495 - you can’t get better cost per minute on track time with 750.

Super clean racing, very friendly paddock and great fun.
