NSW Regularity entries open

Wednesday 12 January, 2022
The 2022 NSW 6 Hour takes place in March.
The New South Wales 6 Hour Regularity Relay is back for another year with entries to the sixth edition of the popular event officially open.
 
Taking place at Sydney Motorsport Park on 12-13 March, around 36 teams made up of three to six cars and three to six drivers are expected to take part in the event with a maximum capacity of 42 teams. 
 
Since entries opened up on 10 January, 17 teams have already committed to contesting the event, while a further five have expressed interest in running – meaning more than half of the spots could be been taken up within a week. 
 
Regularity Relays are quite popular, with competitors able to get lots of track time in a non-racing environment and the NSW Regularity Relay is no different, with up to 13 hours of track time available to each team.
 
While previous years have seen the grassroots event take place over the course of one full day and under lights, this year will see the format change to a two-day event.
 
On the Saturday, teams will spend the day practicing, while the official six-hour event gets underway on the Sunday.
 
Early Bird entries will remain open until 21 January, while final entries are being accepted until 4 February.

With the NSW event having grown in popularity since first taking place in 2016, head of the NSW Road Racing Club’s organising committee, Ross Elliott, was excited for the event.
 
“It’s a really good event and we usually get strong support and good feedback from teams and drivers each year,” Elliot said.
 
“Although we missed out in 2020, we feel this event is starting to get on the same level as the Victorian 6 Hour in the sense that people feel like it's a must-do part of their yearly schedule. 
 
“It helps that it’s towards the start of the year too because for many crews, it’s the first proper event for the year and serves as the perfect way to kick-start their season.
 
“Although we’re hopeful of reaching more than 40 entries this year, we are a bit concerned about COVID and the possibility of cancellation, however we have developed a solid plan and will be taking every precaution possible to make sure the event goes ahead.
 
“It’s a good little event with plenty of different cars expected to take part. From the classic Datsun 1600 to modern day Mustangs, there are plenty of cars representing multiple eras.
 
“Also, regularities are fantastic because not only do they require a certain skill where a driver has to produce the same time lap after lap, but it’s the closest thing you’ll get to door-to-door racing without having to actually race.”
