Here at York raceway we have established ourselves as the best place for Run What You've Brung, here are 6 reasons why.
1. Unique pitting
Our unique pits that allow RWYB a separate access to the track meaning that cars can easily have as many runs down the track as competition cars.
2. Friendly atmosphere
We are a very warm, welcoming and friendly track with marshals that will help at every opportunity whether its your first time or you want to get the best out of your vehicle there are always people to help
3. Two different surfaces to launch the vehicle
We also have a very unique Drag Strip as we have 4 start lines (two each lane) we have a polished rubber surface that is treated with glue this lane is for vehicles that run slicks or drag radials and producing large horse power. And we have shell grip which is a very coarse grain often found on main roads on some round-a- bouts and traffic lights, this provides over 20% more grip than a normal road surface this is ideal for treaded vehicles and many high powered 4x4 cars prefer it to the treated concrete because it provides excellent grip whilst allowing the tyres to give slightly and help spooling up the turbo ensuring there in maximum boost all the way down the track and preventing the car from bogging down, in turn getting the best out of the vehicle.
4. Continuing when weather is bad
One other advantage to the shell grip is during damp or wet conditions we can continue to run cars down the track with only slight change in times.
5. 0-60 timing
We are also the only dragstrip in the UK that has 0-60 mph timing which is on a few events look out for the star icon *. The 60mph times are printed on the timing ticket in place of the 60ft.
6. Ultimate RWYB series
We at York Raceway have developed over the years a class system for RWYB that put cars up against cars of similar power to avoid a 1.6 getting paired up to 2.2ltr turbo. It also gives a taste of competition with trophies handed out to the fastest in class.
If you want plenty of track time, turn up early and start early -the track is opens from 10am. York has world-class TSI timing equipment that gives you a printout of your reaction time, 60 ft, 1/8-mile and ¼-mile times and speeds to 1/100mph and 1/1000second.
For Run What You've Brung Events, you require your car scrutineering (a 'health and safety check'), sign on at the Tower and you're ready to go.
Bring your car, your driving license and a helmet (some available for loan at the track) and you're in the Ultimate RWYB at York Raceway. You get a TSI printout for each run, with precision details of your speeds and times and you can view and compare them later on the RESULTS link.
The Ultimate RWYB has different classes, so cars are pitched against those of similar performance :
|A||Class: upto 1599cc||NO turbo / nitrous / supercharger|
|B||Class: upto 1699cc||WITH turbo / nitrous / supercharger|
|C||Class: from 1600cc to 1999cc||NO turbo / nitrous / supercharger|
|D||Class: 2000cc and above and Rotarys||NO turbo / nitrous / supercharger|
|T||Class: 1700cc and above and Rotarys||WITH turbo / nitrous / supercharger|
|X||Class: all 4X4|
|Z||Class: Cars Capable of 10.5 ¼ mile or quicker.||Cars must be fitted with a rally style roll cage and 4 point seatbelts|
|BRC||Class: all cars that cost £1000 or less.||Cars must be built or modified to a high safety standard.|
|Y||Class: all Non road legal cars||Including street cars with slicks.|
|YB||Class: All bikes|
N.B. KIT CARS move up a class on engine type due to their advantageous power-to-weight ratio.
*NEW Budget RWYB Class.*
As some feel the financial situation more than others but you still want to have a bit of fun well this is the class for you. The rules are simple, build a car for £1000 or less, make sure it's safe and thrash it down the ¼ mile, if someone offers to buy your vehicle you have to sell it for the maximum price of £1000. It doesn't have to be street legal, it doesn't even had to start life as a car, there is nothing to stop you from throwing an engine in to a home built chassis and using an unnecessary amount of nitrous (which one participant had).
