Autograss Racing on Romney Marsh
Autograss Racing is car racing on a dirt track, similar to Grasstrack motor bike racing. The meetings are short, sharp races with up to eight cars in a race starting from a standing start.
Run by the Invicta Kent Autograss Club, the racetrack is located near Ivychurch off of the A259, with meetings being held during the year.
Invicta Kent is the largest club in the country with over 200 members and regularly attracting over 100 cars at the meetings. Drivers from all over the country compete at Ivychurch against the local drivers as has been the case when the club hosted a round of the British Championship a few years ago. The club holds 12 meetings every season from April until October.
There is a mixture of front wheel drive and rear wheel drive in all the seven saloon classes. There are three Specials classes which are single seater open wheelers. Class 8 is for motor bike powered cars, Class 9 is up to 2 litre car engine powered cars and Class 10, the monsters, can be V8, twin motor bike, turbocharged or super charged machines. Juniors have to race the Class 1 cars in the saloon class with a Junior Special class also available using purpose built cars running a 1200cc Vauxhall Corsa engine.
The set up at the race meetings is run to a very high standard with safety always the priority. There is a team of helpers who manage every aspect of the race meeting and as a result it runs like clockwork.
Admission prices to one of the meetings are £7.00 per adult with children under 12 free. 12 to 16 year olds and concessions pay just £4.00.
Racing starts at 10.30am and usually finishes about 4.00pm so it’s a full day of entertainment with thrills and spills along the way.
