The National Sprint Series will journey to the fabled Vernamfield Airfield on September 30 for Overdrive/Vernamfield Rebirth, meet #5 in the six event series. Series sponsor The Automotive Performance Centre in its mandate to spread motorsports across the island will stage a joint meet with a reorganized drag racing fraternity to revive the historic facility that has been the scene of many motoring achievements over the years. Championship Tarmac sprint action will take place starting at 10am and at 1.30pm properly coordinated ¼ mile drag racing will commence. A fast circuit track will be laid out that will bring out the best in circuit cars prepared for Dover Raceway, as this event is a good test of car setup ahead of the Heroes Day meet. Expect to see a massive amount of cars turn out for this event as Dover regulars as well as rally/sprint contenders grace the high speed circuit and the tyre wrenching, fire belching high horsepower monsters come out to play thereafter. Admission is $1,000 and gates open at 8am.
Assistance for this meet has been gained from Williams Auto, Team Mobay Racing & Tragedy Entertainment.
