25th - 26th March
The Sandown Sprint will involve 100 cars competing on a specially constructed circuit, at Sandown’s Culver Parade, with the start in Fort Street and finishing in Yaverland.
Harking back to the days before national speed limits on UK roads, the Island Car Centre Sandown Sprint will evoke a sense of nostalgia as vehicles compete once again on Culver Parade.
Pathe Newsreels still provide a record of motor rallies and sprints being held on public roads on the Isle of Wight in the 1950s, in places like The Cascade in Ventnor and the Esplanade in Sandown. It’s likely that these events were just simply run with the permission of the local Chief Constable and that outright speed was not to the objective.
The Sandown Sprint certainly brings back the spirit of these earlier events as well as adding some real speed to the proceedings.
Prices start from £10.00
