The Clubmans Sports Prototype Championship, controlled by the Clubmans Register, made its debut with MSVR in 2020. It is a highly cost-effective championship which visits all the leading UK circuits and traces its history back to 1965 when it had its first ever race at Brands Hatch. It remains the prime championship for all genders who enjoy freedom in regulations to develop, engineer and race their surprisingly fast prototypes across 4 classes.
Clubmans offers front-engined, "slicks and wings" racing across the leading motor-racing circuits in the UK. The Club particularly welcomes drivers who also enjoy engineering and developing their cars. The Club has 4 competitive classes to suit varying budgets and experience: CSP1, CSP2, CSPA and CSPB.
CSP1 class is for the modern chassis with any 2 litre, 4 cylinder engine which produces no more than 200bhp. Six speed gear box and limited slip differential are also allowed. With the same power limit motorcycle engine cars are also allowed up to 1600cc.
CSP2 class is for cars powered by the ubiquitous, almost bullet proof MG1600 engine. These engines are standard at around 130bhp, sealed and only the club nominated engine builder can work on them. This ensures that all engines are equal and costs are kept to a minimum
CSPA class is for Classic Clubmans specification chassis built before 1981 using highly developed 1700 cc Ford Kent engines delivering up to 190 bhp. Cars must run in ‘period’ specification but with modern tyres.
CSPB is also for Classic Clubmans pre-1981 cars using slightly less powerful, but no less exciting to drive, Formula Ford 1600cc engines.
This Championship is highly cost effective with entry level cars for MG powered CSP2 or Formula Ford powered, Classic B Sport available second hand from around £7000. A race weekend can cost as little as £500 for three races plus qualifying in the ca 17 race championship which is spread over six or seven weekends during the year. Races are usually 15 minutes duration plus qualifying sessions. While many drivers compete in all the rounds many pick and choose the circuits that are convenient to them to minimise cost.
These are true “slicks and wings” cars and are easy to drive but as importantly are also greatly rewarding for the extra effort of an already skilled driver. Hankook tyres are supplied to a controlled compound and size, slick and wet, to keep cost down and a set can last all season or more. The Classic classes also have the option of using the same tyres.
There are some basic rules on chassis design to control size and weight of the cars but they are sufficiently loose in CSP1 and CSP2 to allow freedom to develop innovative ideas. However, this is not just a series for budding design engineers, there are many manufacturer ready built cars and a strong second hand market or even arrive and drive options available
Almost as important to the cars is the camaraderie that surrounds Clubmans racing. New comers are always well looked after and never left floundering on the side lines. You will find support and assistance throughout the Clubmans membership from sorting out handling difficulties to guidance of the right way to start motor racing for the absolute beginner. So, no matter what age you are contact the Clubmans Register and start a new life enjoying in the wonderful world that is Clubmans
