What’s the cost of doing the Club’s Speed Championship?

I quite fancy giving it a go in 2023... can anyone advise what the costs are please? (I've searched but cannot see the entry fees anywhere). 
 

RS license - £160

Series registration fee - ?

Medical tests, etc - ?

Each round entry fee - ? (for rounds that cover 2 days ie Sat/Sun does this cost double?)

anything else - ?

Hello Dirt Buddha,

The intro to sprinting section of the Competitors section of the website had this useful pdf

I hope that gives you some idea. (NB this document will have dated so best to get further advice before spending anything)

Best,

Simon

In 2022 an RS Interclub license was £69, might be modest increase for 2023

No medical is required for this.

Series registration fee was £30 in 2022.

Entry fees for events range from about £100 to £150. If there are 2 rounds over a weekend that will cost double although some organisers offer a small discount if you enter for both days.

You will need a minimum of an FIA roll bar and petty strut, you may already have this. No other major expense on the car until you get hooked and decide it is not fast enough!

Personal safety equipment....Helmet, Race Suit, gloves. Cost about £600.

Travel and accommodation for more far flung events, camping is usually allowed in the paddock which is the cheapest option.

Have a read of this page as well: https://www.caterhamlotus7.club/competitors-area/competitor-home-page

Give it a go!

cost for joining the championship will be  £30, same as 2022.

also required is an RS Interclub license at £74 i've not had to get a medical so can't comment on that.
each round is approx £100 entry fee , and yes , usually doubles for a 2 day event
 

that's it unless you don't have a FIA approved race suit, gloves , helmet as a minimum.
