Essendon Mazda MX-5 Sprint Championship

Each calendar year the Motor Sport leadership team organises a Sprint Championship.

This year’s Championship is proudly supported by naming rights sponsor Essendon Mazda.

This championship is based upon the participation in, and results of, a number of competition rounds (approximately 10 per year). The eligible rounds are selected by the Club Captain – Motor Sport and the Assistant Club Captain – Motor Sport.

All events are open to Club members holding a CAMS Level 2S (or higher) licence. All rounds of the championship are single-car events — ie, against the clock rather than head-to-head — so there is very little chance of damage occurring. Daily-driven cars are perfectly suitable; you do not need a dedicated track car.

Outstanding performances are recognised by our range of Championship trophies.
