Curborough Report by Alice Hamilton age 7

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


Blackbushe interim report and Curborough entries

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)

Blackbushe Report

Theres been a lot of posts on facebook along with 100s of photos so i’ll keep this brief.

We had a good turnout of teams ranging from Team105 from the North, Delphi from the East and Royce from the South West in total 18 both days,, so a good representation and turnout.


Saturday Sprints

The day was grey and overcast with rain forecast for later so first order of the day was getting pit gazebos up in case. Once that was done rest of circuit was set up ready for the off.

Races 1-4 the 45 min sprints.

With only 45 minutes per race racing is fast and furious with the top teams Wing and Apollo being joined by Royce to make it a three way battle for the lead although Wing somehow managed to roll their car at the chicane but after a quick brush down it went on its way.

During Race 2 the lapcounting system crashed twice due to a faulty usb cable so manual counting saved the day. Many Thanks to Alan for stepping up and doing the manual img_8203count and Phil for swift resurrection of the lapcounting system so we only lost (and adjusted) about 8 laps

Then after race 5 (the 3 hour) had started the rain finally arrived and both the drivers and photographers found that the pit bend and chicane a challenge with at least two cars spinning and several cars showing massive understeer or oversteer and a few interesting lines were taken.

After a close battle the top three were only separated by a couple of laps.

Fortunately the rain stopped just in time for the presentations.

Sunday 100mileimg_8260

Fortunately today was dry with weather improving throughout with the afternoon being very pleasant.

Throughout the whole 100miles completed in a little over 5 hours there was sevimg_8484eral very close battles for places. At the top we had a three way battle for the lead/win between Wing, Apollo and Royce Too with them often being less than a lap apart. Further down we had the 3 Swebbelli teams battling over 6, 7th and 8th and 3 Falcon Notnray cars vying for 11th, 12th and 13th.



Mimg_8444echanical issues with Royce Odd Balls (sheared steering), Royce Spider (Rose Joint) and Delphi (Hub Axle) probably meant they were lower placed than expected and temporarily took them out of contention. All 3 were repaired though and rejoined the race.
