Race entries for the 2022 Toyo Tires 7 Race Series went live only three weeks ago and at the time of writing, almost 600 race entries for their nine events have been sold. The foreign rounds at Spa, Barcelona and Monza sold out in just under 48 hours!
When asked why so much interest, Sean Bicknell 7 Race Series Coordinator stated “It really has been a manic few weeks in the office, processing everyone’s race entries. We have improved our communications this year and now that we can process bookings and payments via our website, it has made it easier for drivers to arrange their racing.
The foreign rounds sold out extraordinarily fast, but we do share those grids with our Portuguese partners, so we have less grid slots available for our UK drivers at those events. The UK rounds have also been popular, with a full grid of sixty one cars booked for Silverstone along with five paid up reserves. We run two grids at all of the other UK championship rounds, so we have a much higher capacity at those events, we still have space available at Donington National, Brands Hatch GP, Snetterton 300 and Oulton Park International. That said, we have sold approximately 84% of our total grid slot capacity across all of our events so far.
To answer the question of why so much interest, the series has always prided itself on organising events at the best circuits that the UK and Europe has to offer. The racing is super competitive while remaining fair. The regulations are closely adhered to, but again in a fair and open way. But the main reason in my opinion is the friendly paddock, we have a great bunch of drivers and supporting teams. It’s like a big family really.”
With memberships also up for the 7 Race Series this year and over 80 fully paid up driver members already on the books, It’s looking like 2022 is going to be the busiest year yet for the 7 Race Series!
