I’m going to see if I can do harewood hill next year, I know you need an MSA license and you will need FIA approved helmet, gloves and suit. Plus you will have to follow from a list for which group you fall into depending on exterior and interior body mods.

Yes I use Extremes , 2 different types remoulds at £450 or new carcass at £600. put the rear splitter in the boot so the scruts don't moan , some do .

i scrutineer a few sprints and hills a year ,my best advise starting out is especially sprinting ,drive ANYTHING your dailys best ,make sure you kits right first, then gain experience about what does what and what goes where and when,driving something you knows going to get you to and from with no need for a tow vehicle and trailer ,rather than messing around worrying about your car
daft as it seems my pal whos also a scrutt sprinted his old audi quattro last year ,in the rain on god knows what rubber he had a riot all day and set the fastest , 0 to 64 feet time ,that day in his daily
racing is another thing all together best bet is find some one you know and go and help them youll learn loads

Plenty of sprints and hill climbs in Scotland. Kames is a good starter sprint track in East Ayrshire and Forrestburn hillclimb nearer yourself (between Edinburgh and Glasgow) is a belter of a track.

Easy to get started, as above all you need is a national b licence (just applied by post), basic safety kit for yourself (FIA approved suit, helmet and gloves) plus some minor mods to the car (timing strut, stickers, tow hooks).

Get yourself over to Knockhill, do a trackday or two and find out what's available in competition terms. This summer I was involved in the SLS series and it was very well run, competitive and really good fun. But there are also door to door racing opportunities.
