HomeWelcome to the Marque Sports Car Association of SA Inc website. On this site you'll find Supp regs, event results and links to other clubs.
The calender for 2015 plus the membership form are now available on the website.
Dorians are required by all drivers and can be purchased by ringing Sue on 0408 858 046 and paying the cost of $430.00 each. We will give you one sprint grace but a record is being kept.
To clarify the running of super sprints, there will be four runs at each round but, should there be delays during the day and the fourth run has not started by 3:00pm, it will not be counted as an official run. The annual scoring system will continue to be based on the competitor's best four events for the year and he/she must complete all available official laps at each of those four events. The novices practice session will continue to be conducted under the current system following a novices' briefing. Regular competitors wanting to try something new, e.g. run in an engine or bed brakes, will be offered a 10 to 15 minute session early in the day during the novices briefing. Those wishing to take advantage of this session must nominate before the event, on the entry form, indicating their reason for the request and there will be a limit of twenty in this session. It may be possible to ask on the day but the limit will still apply.

MARQUE SPORTS CAR ASSOCIATION
The M.S.C.A was formed in the early 70's to give the smaller Sports Car Clubs of South Australia the opportunity to compete at the Mallala Motorsport Racing Circuit and in Motorkhanas and Hillclimbs. With only a low number of members competing from each club, the individual members joined the M.S.C.A., allowing those drivers to compete in their cars. The Marque Sports Car Association is an association of 16 Clubs with the CAMS affiliation fee being paid by the association and the individual Clubs paying the M.S.C.A. an annual subscription fee.
Since its inception we have grown from 3 cars on the track with no passing to now up to 24 cars on the starting grid, starting in pairs flagged off 5 seconds apart, with 5 flying laps and passing on the straights only. We now run all super sprints using the Dorian Timer System which has taken over from the computerised timing system and hand held stopwatches which we used to use.
Full safety systems are in place for every Super Sprint with an Ambulance, Fire & Rescue, Course Car, Recovery Team and manned Flag Bunkers with trained Officials. A maximum of 120 entries for each Sprint with all cars being Scrutineered before entering the track.
Classes are from the standard road cars to full race cars. Grids are made up from your dominated fastest times on the entry form with these being available the Thursday prior to each sprint on our website. You get at least 3 runs of 5 laps to Sprint around the track. Sprints are an ideal way to learn car control for every day driving with the Super Sprint Series run over 12 months with 5 rounds and a 6 hour Modern Regularity Relay.
We also have a Driver Training Day run by our more experienced drivers showing you car control exercise such as braking into corner, driving to avoid obstacles on the road and cadence braking. A Club Display Day is held a the beginning of the year which incorporates the trophy presentation from the previous year.
Costs are kept to a minimum with the licence required is a CAMS Level 2S current cost of $100.00, plus membership with M.S.C.A. is currently $20.00 but you must join an affiliated Club listed below.
