CRYSTAL PALACE SPRINT SET FOR 2020 RETURN

CRYSTAL PALACE SPRINT SET FOR 2020 RETURN

Posted by Matt Bell on 6th December 2019

Sevenoaks and District Motor Club will once again stage its popular Crystal Palace Sprint over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 24-25, 2020.

The two-day, non-championship Crystal Palace Sprint event will be run along the same lines as previous years, where classes are decided by year of manufacture rather than engine size. This attracts a varied entry of historic, classic and modern competition machinery, as well as road-going vehicles.

The club has run the sprint weekend since 2017, taking a short break in 2018. Its return in 2019 proved to be a huge success, attracting 192 car entries over the two days, split into a 24-car class structure. The 2020 event will feature more of the same and will once again include classic motorcycles performing demonstration runs to evoke a bygone era of bikes racing at the circuit. There will also be trade stands, an autojumble, a car show and various attractions aimed at the young.

Sevenoaks and District Motor Club Event Co-ordinator Karen Webber said: “We have already started the planning way ahead of schedule and we have had a very good response. Although it was a success this year, we know we can make this event even bigger and better in 2020.”
