Here we have a great race report from Alice Hamilton age 7. Many thanks Alice its far better than what i manage to write.
Curborough second race report
At the moment every body is getting ready to start the race. this time it’s a pedalcar race. it’s a bit windy but no rain I helped with
Jobs like washing up. numbers like 1 2 3 4 I shouted it to Apollo. My favorite pedalcar was the one with the yellow strip I did the
washing part by part for About 1 half hours bcuse there was a lot to wash up and I love washing up. it got dark at the end and
everyone had lights on the pedalcars they were on at the end. We camped and everyone got burgers for tea and we got black
pudding sandwiches Sunday. On Sunday real cars were going top speed round the track. Jamesy stubd his toe so bad he couldnt
put his shoe on so he couldnt race but dady could race and Jess and ben and we have a cat called ben. I sat in a pedalcar I enjoyed
Alice Hamilton, I’m 7
The race information for Saturday’s Curborough 7 hour pedal car race can be downloaded by clicking the Race Info pack Icon or click here .
Just to draw your attention to 2 areas:
Firstly, can teams assigned to put away things at the end of the race please do so?
Secondly, we do need to be off the racing surface by the time everyone goes to bed on Saturday night because the Aston Martin Owners Club has the track on the Sunday.
This means outside the wooden fence.
We can, however, still camp as normal and the advantage is that the cafe should be open on Sunday morning so you won’t need to worry about making your own breakfasts!
If there are any questions – and especially if your team is misrepresented on the entry list – please let me know!
Finally you still have time to place your orders for the BBQ – full details here
Well that was an interesting weekend. Technical issues yesterday with lapcounting stopping every time the generator glitches. Then wet weather all though the 100mile causing a few spins and slides when drivers explored the limits of their tyres grip. All in though some very close competive racing and Sundays race was won by only a few seconds.
Due to the rain on Sunday the 100 mile was time limited to 5 1/2 Hours as another 15 minutes would have been needed to reach the 100.
Thanks to everybody who made it happen including Camberly kart club, well trodden path (Kate – sports massage), Rose of notnray noshery, and especial thanks to Hair (scary brook) and Rose for ably running the lapcount inspite of the glitches.
Photos of the races and presentations are starting to appear on our facebook group and will get added to the gallery here later this week.
Racing now moves to season finale at Curborough in 3 weeks. If you haven’t entered yet get your entries in asap. Online entries are here and forms for postal entries here (but please email Jes to let him know you are coming)
Full information including BBQ price list is on the Curborough page
This is relatively new to us, having spectators at a race hence we haven’t really added any information.
There is no charge for spectating
The best place to start is the race information page http://pedalcarracing.info/blackbushe-weekend/
This has on it the race timetables and links to each days full information and directions to the site. After you have passed the security gate follow the BPCC blue signs to the kart track and park in the main car park. You can then see most of the track and choose a suitable spot to watch the action. There is a footpath behind a wooden fence along the main straight that being raised provides a good viewing area,
Whilst there are toilets on site there is no drinking water and the cafe is aimed at feeding those overnight so i recommend bring a picnic, although if you ask Rose of Notnray Noshery nicely (in the small gazebo next to race control) she should be able to provide a cuppa.
The full race info pack is here http://pedalcarracing.info/download/races/blackbushe/2017-Blackbushe-Race-Information.pdf with more information.
Next year we promise to be better organised
Apologies for the website issues this morning. Service is now restored as at 13:00
