CAR-nival Sprint

The 22nd Abingdon CAR-nival Sprint saw FTD (Fastest Time of the Day) STEVE MILES claim his first Abingdon title after half-a-dozen attempts at the Oxfordshire Airfield.

The unique 2-Course CAR-nival Sprint covers 4 timed runs (with 4 practice) over the 2 testing layouts which run simultaneously.  Steve recorded a time of 37.97 over the fast, flowing Abingdon Course and then backed it up with a 45.86 on the sequence of 4 straights and 6 turns of the Bentley Course.

A combined total 88.83 meant the a new name joined the role of honour.

We thank all of the competitors, marshals, timekeepers and safety crews for helping to make the 2018 Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival a safe and successful event.



The CAR-nival Sprint features a unique 2-Course format where each competitor contests 2 different Courses (Abingdon & Bentley), one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  The Abingdon Course is about acceleration, braking and out-and-out speed whilst the Bentley Course tests cornering and judgment.

The CAR-nival Sprint attracts a wide range of cars and drivers

After 2 practice on each course, the competitor completes 2 timed runs over each course, giving a fantastic and unmatched 8 runs in 1 day – the best value for money speed event in the UK.
