Copyright © Superlap Scotland
Super Lap Scotland is not racing, it is a very intense time-trial challenge event, where competitors compete throughout the day to post the fastest overall time in each of the seven classes.
All classes are based on the power-to-weight ratio of each car and driver; which allows even the most modest of road cars the opportunity to compete against the more modified cars out on track; with points awarded for qualifying positions and overall finishing positions in each class. Meaning that a class G competitor (least powerful) could take the overall championship title from a Pro class competitor (most powerful) by scoring more points throughout the season, giving us an overall "King of Knockhill".
2019 classes based on Flywheel BHP and WEIGHT including driver:
Drivers will nominate which class they fall into based on their power output and the weight of their car, including driver. You can organise an SLS power run and corner weight package at a discounted price, to produce a certificate of output, at RA Motorsport which is the 2019 SLS certified rolling road. Organisers reserve the right to request a competitor to attend a SLS rolling road to certify a competitors car's power and weight ratio and /or move a competitor between classes if deemed required.
Qualifying - consists of a 15 minute session with competitors aiming to top the time sheets against their respective class competitors, with their fastest lap counting as their outright best time. From there, the drivers in each class then progress onto the single-lap final shoot-out.
Final - this is when the pressure really intensifies. Competitors get one Superlap, that’s right, a solitary flying lap to post their quickest time - which ultimately defines the winners from the losers. This really is, for want of a better phrase, a “One Lap Dash for the Cash”!
Road Car Awards -Road-going cars competing in standard trim, taxed, MOT’d are eligible to score points towards their own respective sub championship. The fastest road going cars from each power to weight division will be highlighted at event prize givings.
Retro Class - NEW for 2019 the Retro Class provides an opportunity for pre 90 cars to compete for a sub trophy. Much like the Road Car Class, the points scored by Retro competitors in their respective power to weight classes (Pro-G) will be carried across to their Retro Class tally. The top Retro Class car from each class (Pro-G) will be awarded with a trophy at each event and the top 3 Retro competitors across all events will be awarded with 2019 Retro Class Championship awards.
Tuning companies, car clubs or groups of drivers may also compete for the Team Trophy, consisting of teams of between 2 & 4 drivers. Here is how the SLS Team Trophy will work:

Tyres - All cars can use the MSA List 1A,1B or 1C tyres, however Road Class Cars can only choose tyres from List 1A and 1B as these tyres are road legal. These can be referenced in the 2019 MSA blue book.
