We will endeavour to reply to any messages and emails when possible.

Booking In Timescales

Added by kevin_mcqueen on Monday 18th March
Following on from the late cancellation of the Classic Hot Rods from the event on the 16th March, and the extremely late notice that was given to a replacement formula, Hardie Race Promotions has taken the decision to change the deadline for bookings.

Drivers are now required to book in by no later than 9am on the Thursday before any Saturday events. This will give the promotion the opportunity to make a change to the schedule if required, with a bit more time for a replacement formula to be readied. If insufficient bookings are made by the 9am deadline, than a replacement formula may be sought. National Hot Rods booking process will remain as is, in line with the NHRPA regulations.

In normal circumstances, any driver booking in after this time will be treated as a late booking. Any drivers recorded as a late booking will be required to start from the rear of their grade all night. Any driver that does not book will be required to start from the rear of the grid. This is for all formulas excluding National Hot Rods who have their own booking process with the NHRPA, and Bangers, who do not run graded races.

Drivers can book in for our events through WhatsApp 07584837445 or through our website, www.hardieracepromotions.co.uk

If you intend to race, please do so by 9am on a Thursday morning.

Points Update

Added by kevin_mcqueen on Wednesday 13th March
Following on from discussions, Hardie Race Promotions have taken the decision to change the way that points are given for the following formulas; Stock Rods, 2.0 Hot Rods & Ninja Karts.

Historically, we have given points to drivers travelling to championship events at other promotions, however, after considering driver input and to ensure fairness and consistency across the board, a decision has been made not to award National Points for away events, or for championship events, in line with Spedeworth Motorsports. This is in part due to the number of drivers able to attend certain championship events due to restricted allocations. However, given that the above listed formulas are already into a National Points campaign, these changes will come into effect after the cut off for the respective World Championship events, where points will be reset.

With Ninja Karts, the National Points system will now also run World final to World final, with a cut off approx. 1 month before the date of the World Championship race. This in effect, will mean that points scored from the World Final in 2023, until the World Final 2024 will determine the 2023-24 National Points Champion. A track championship will now also run, which will be for the calendar year Jan – Dec.
