The Surgery Sprints Se­ries has been a fea­ture of the lo­cal club-rac­ing cal­en­dar for over 20 years now. It was set up as a low-key event for those want­ing to get into mo­tor­sport with­out the pres­sure of in­tense com­pe­ti­tion. The for­mat is sim­ple: a pair of ve­hi­cles is re­leased onto the track at 10-sec­ond in­ter­vals and com­plete three laps from a fly­ing start. Points are awarded based on the lap times a driver achieves and go to­wards in­di­vid­ual and club prizes. En­try re­quire­ments are also ba­sic, re­quir­ing ve­hi­cles and driv­ers to have road-le­gal tyres, fire-re­sis­tant over­alls, a hel­met, a fire ex­tin­guisher fit­ted (with a me­tal bracket), a roll cage for open-top cars and a Mo­tor­Sport New Zealand li­cence (day li­cences avail­able). Head to thesurgery.co.nz to en­ter — driver en­try fee of $90 ap­plies.
