New For 2011 - Street Class

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys & Gals,

Some great news for 2011 in the Toyota Sprint Series. The series will now have 2 classes in each existing class - Street & Pro which opens up the series to those of you who like your interior comfort and your car un-fettled :thumbsup:

Announcement below:

For 2011 we will be introducing a whole new championship within the existing one for "Street Cars".

Don't worry....the format we have now will still continue and will be called "Pro" eg: Class B pro.

So all of you that don't have a Street Spec car have just been promoted to Pro Class :D

We will also add "Street" versions of each class up to A2

A1 will become just "A Pro" and stay the same regs as last year, there will be no "Street" A1, unless there's a call for it???

Also we will have an overall "Street Champion" at the end of the year as well as individual Street Class champions :D

Points are to be awarded the same as now, which gives the Street guys a chance of beating their corresponding Pro class cars and stealing points from them, it also includes them in the whole championship.

Additional Technical Regs

Street Modifications limited to

Shock absorbers and springs, street type coilovers - height adjustable ok. (No 3 way adjustables ie: seperate soft bump/hard bump and rebound control, No Rally one offs, No remote reservoirs, No alluminium hubs unless standard equipment)

Suspension bushes may be replaced with polyurethane bushes but no rose joints allowed

Standard suspension pick up points - upper and lower strut bracing allowed but must be bolt on.

Anti Roll bars - Upgraded Road type allowed, must use standard pick up points or in the case of rear beam axles, additional points may be used .

No engine or transmission conversions (unless originally fitted to same chassis, eg: MR2 MK1 OE supercharger allowed, or AT200 with 3S-ge would be ok but not a turbo or v6 transplant)

Engine Internals – Standard - Gentlemans agreement - we may use racelogic performance box to measure performance!

Gearbox - Standard, no sequential shifters

Exhaust free within current noise limits (102db), must exit between rear wheels

Air filter free

Boost control free

ECU must be standard along with all standard sensors**

** A gentleman's agreement will be used for vehicles with added supercharger or turbocharger and ecu as long as power output is within sensible limits and suits the particular class. eg: Gen 7 celica with supercharger and ecu mods will be allowed in class A3 street as long as power output is within 330bhp and all other criteria is met.

** ECU and sensors free for A2 Street ( there are many cars out there that are genuine road cars with programmable ecu's)

Turbocharger - must retain OE type exhaust and compressor housings, internals free.(so hybrids allowed)

No race fuel - Commercially available octane booster allowed

No lightweight panels or perspex windows.

No dry sumps, oil or fuel lines inside the car.

No competition type tyres, only msa listed 1a, must be UK road legal at all times (more than 1.6mm tread).

Wheel size may be increased but not decreased.

Brakes free - but no hydraulic handbrakes or bias valves.

Full interior to be retained - spare wheel & jack/brace to be removed.

Front seats may be changed and harness and bolt in roll over protection may be added.

Fire extinguisher advised

Must have MOT

Body kit allowed ie: front and rear bumpers, side skirts, front and rear spoilers allowed but no wide arch conversions, No additional Aero aids ie Canards, splitters, vortex generators, flat under panneling, rear diffusers etc.

The above are proposed additions to our previous regs, which will be amalgamated shortly.

Our idea is to increase the entrants as well as provide a cheaper option for existing competitors. We also hope to encourage the novice driver out on track.

Please give us your views on this, we value your feedback

What do you all think .....runs for cover :lol: ;)

Adrian & Baz

Any further info can be found here or post here & I'll do my best to answer :D

This new Street class is an excellent idea for three very good reasons:

1. All expensive modifications are banned so you will be racing pretty much factory-spec cars.

2. You won't have to race MsB who will be in Pro class, phew! :thumbsup:

3. I can race in Pro class and people might mistakenly think I know what I am doing, well sounds good anyway :lol:

Looking forward to seeing more TOCers joining us in 2011! B)

Paul.

Yep we had the Auris's competing in 2008 (cars provided by Toyota) and each was driven by teams from Banzai, Jap Performance & Max Power.

The diesel class (Class E) is still there & open for entries :thumbsup:

I love this, good job Toyota….. now please don’t pull a FT-HS or LF-A “All show no go” Policy. Cause we’ve miss the FR toyota we all loved for over 30yrs from the super halo 2000GT to my beloved AE86 please make this happens….don’t know about all you toyota fans out there….but I think this thing looks great… has the right mindset might not look exactly as this concept here…but somewhere in between is nice…cause give me room to improve the looks as well as performance wise with some volk racing wheels and turbo charged STI EJ25 swap in the works?? :lol:LOL

Here are the date & venues for 2011 - would be good to see some of you guys :thumbsup:

Round 1, Sunday 27th March - Rockingham

Round 2, Sunday 22nd May – Woodbridge

Round 3, Sunday July 24th – Barkston Heath

Round 4, Saturday 13th August – Llandow

Round 5, Sunday 4th September – Croft

Round 6, Saturday 15th October – Blyton (subject to new tarmac improvements)

We have also secured a reserve event should Blyton not be ready ..................

Sunday 23rd October – Woodbridge (Reserve Event)

Registration opens on the 5th January and details of how to pay will follow so keep your eyes peeled on the http://www.toyotasprint.com website. I'm afraid the fees will rise again this year and will be set at £120.00 per round. Registration will remain at £120.00 and the £20 per round deposit will be used the same as last year, i.e. we use your £120.00 deposit and spread over the 6 rounds so you only pay £100.00 when each event payment is due.

There is a 'deal' on for 2 or more drivers competing in the same car where each race they enter they will be cheaper but they must register for the whole season.

You'll still pay 120 for registration each but it will be the individual rounds which will be cheaper...

Registered Driver 1 pays 100 balance & Registered Driver 2 pays 60 balance (or 80 each if you spilt it between you) saving £20 each per round

Or non registered (in other words you haven't paid the deposit) ....

Driver 1 pays 120 & Driver 2 pays 80 - again saving £20 each
