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 super-tuned monsters out on track. Points are awarded for qualifying positions and overall finishing positions in each class, meaning that a class F 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".
2017 classes based on WHEEL BHP and WEIGHT including driver:
- Pro: Unlimited
- A: 350-450
- B: 270-350
- C: 210-270
- D: 160-210
- E: 136-160
- F: <135
Drivers will nominate which class they fall into based on their power output (at the wheels) 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 2017 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.
These classes can be accessed by having your car meet the MSA Sprint regulations (Section S of MSA Blue Book) for either of the following:
- Road-Going Series Production = Mass produced unmodified road car (S11)
- Road-Going Specialist Production = Limited production unmodified road cars (S11)
- Modified Series Production = Mass produced cars which have been modified within the provisions of S12. These cars must have MSA compliant roll cages and 4-point harnesses.
- Modified Specialist Production = Limited produced cars which have been modified within the provisions of S12. These cars must have MSA compliant roll cages and 4-point harnesses.
- Sports Libre = Any other car not complying with the above (S14)
See MSA General Regulations for Sprint vehicles (Section S.10, [All vehicles] S.11 [Production], S.12 [Modified] & S.14 [Sports Libre])
SLS is simply man and machine against the track and the clock, with competitors ultimately aiming for the PERFECT lap. Competitors start the day participating in two timed practice sessions, to perfect rac¬ing lines and car set-ups. Next, it’s on to the first points scoring activity of the weekend, with qualifying.
Qualifying consists of a 15 minute session with competitors aiming to top the timesheets against their respective class competitors, with their fastest lap counting as their outright best time. From there, the driv¬ers in each class then progress onto the single-lap final shoot-out.
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 rest of the pack. 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 and driven to the venue 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 each event prize giving.
Vehicles must comply fully with the Production Car Category (S.11), remain in standard trim including passenger / rear seats and carpets, be taxed and hold a valid MOT certificate if appropriate for the age of the vehicle and be driven to the event. The fitting of roll cages is permitted. Points are awarded in accordance with 1.6.1 to 1.6.4 of regulations. Competitors wishing to enter the Road Car Championship should indicate this by completing the appropriate section of the Registration Form.
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:
- First of all a tuning company, car club or any group that wishes to take part must register a team name with SLS.
- The team will then choose their drivers for the season.
- Each team must have at least two drivers registered and a maximum of four to be eligible.
- Only the points from the top two drivers of each team will count per event.
- 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.
- 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.
- All six events count towards the team championship standings and no dropped scores are allowed.
- Enter your team name on the SLS Team Trophy Entry Form, followed by UP TO 4 team members.
