About 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.

Class Structure

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:

  • Pro: Unlimited
  • Class A: 426-530bhp/tonne
  • Class B: 341-425bhp/tonne
  • Class C: 266-340bhp/tonne
  • Class D: 211-265bhp/tonne
  • Class E: 166-210bhp/tonne
  • Class F: 131-165bhp/tonne
  • Class G: below 130bhp/tonne

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.

SLS in Short

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.

Team Trophy

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:

  1. First of all a tuning company, car club or any group that wishes to take part must register a team name with SLS.
  2. The team will then choose their drivers for the season.
  3. Each team must have at least two drivers registered and a maximum of four to be eligible.
  4. Only the points from the top two drivers of each team will count per event.
  5. Only the points from the top two drivers of each team will count per event.
  6. Teams who have over four entrants must then create a second squad under a different name with both teams scoring points for their own championship and effectively become rivals.
  7. Drivers can only drive under one team unless they are entered in two separate cars and cannot switch to a different team once the season has started.
  8. All six events count towards the team championship standings and no dropped scores are allowed.
  9. Enter your team name on the SLS Team Trophy Entry Form, followed by UP TO 4 team members.

If you would like to enter a team, please complete the form below and email it to rory@superlapscotland.co.uk. Once teams are set, they cannot be changed.

Ties

Ties will be resolved in the following order:

(c) By considering the placings in all Championship events.

The totals from each competitors highest 6 scores will determine final championship points and positions. Should a competitor be excluded from the results of an event under MSA regulations then this cannot be counted as a dropped score.
