Following our recent membership to the MSA, S2KUK have been approached by the Classic Marques Speed Challenge organiser to see if there is any interest from members to take up sprinting or hillclimbing with them. It is an ideal introduction to competing and racing your S2000!
Classic Marques Speed Challenge is a series of 26 sprints and hillclimbs specifically for sports car drivers. The championship was set up initially for classic British sports cars but these days such a high proportion of sports cars are made by International companies that this year Classic Marques opens its doors to cars made by Honda amongst many other international makes. The Honda S2000 especially is a subtle and iconic sports car which performs well on the roads, but it has an inner strength and willing high revving engine which makes it perfect for motorsport too.
Below you will find a few questions and answers

Why is the Classic Marques Speed Championship fair?
Each car is given a handicap factor based on power, weight and tyres fixed until the car spec changes. The weight of the driver is also included in the handicap algorithm. The algorithm enables cars of different powers and weights to compete fairly against each other.
