The Man of Steel is a Championship Series

The Man of Steel Summer Series is a Championship series comprising of eight rounds of which the driver's best six scores will count towards the championship.

It is a 4* event for very experienced and fit drivers.

It is run in two weight categories, lightweights being drivers under 85kg in full race kit, and heavies who are drivers who exceed 85kg.

It is not necessary to compete the full series as all rounds are open to 'one off' entries.

The Winter Championship

This is a four round championship where the best three scores will count. The format, itinerary and weight classes are the same as above.

Date: Sunday, 19th October 2014.

Time: 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

Cost: £125 per Light (below 85kg), £125 per Heavy (over 85kg).

The 4* Man of Steel is one man, one hour test of stamina for experienced drivers .

This season we are continuing to offer F1 style qualifying in the Man of Steel.
All drivers compete in Q1, a ten minute session. Driver’s finishing 25th to 38th will qualify in those grid slots. The remaining 24 drivers will move to Q2, an eight minute session. Those finishing Q2 in positions 13th to 24th will qualify in those grid slots. The remaining 12 will go through to Q3 (6 minutes) and will fill grid slots 1-12. For the purposes of qualifying, weight classes will be ignored though the fastest in each class will still earn one bonus point, regardless of actual grid position.
