THE motorsport action returns to Rockingham next weekend (October 21/22) as the Northamptonshire circuit hosts back-to-back sprint events.
New to Rockingham for 2017, the Vintage Sports-Car Club (VSCC) will be visiting the venue for the first time on Saturday (October 21), for its season finale, the Autumn Sprint.
Always one of the most popular events in the VSCC calendar due to its welcoming and relaxed “end of season” atmosphere in the paddock, the Autumn Sprint will be held on technical 1.7-mile infield layout of the National Circuit.
After kicking off the season at Rockingham in March, the BARC Midlands SBD Speed Championship returns to the circuit on Sunday (October 22) to bring down the curtain on another successful campaign, which has seen competitors visit some of the best UK venues as part of the 24-round series.
Once again more than 100 entrants will take part in the closed event on the 1.6-mile International Sprint Circuit, which combines the infamous Turn 1 banking of the Oval with the fast sweeping bends of the challenging infield section.
Spectators are welcome to attend both sprints however viewing will be restricted to the top of the Pit Garages and the three small viewing platforms next to the Timing Tower. Entry is free!
