Blackbushe 100 miles Endurance

2020 Round 5 – Blackbushe Sprints Sunday 6th September 2020
Blackbushe Sprints

The Blackbushe Weekend is a double header, two independent rounds held over two days, with Round 4 comprising 5 x 1Hr sprints sprints on Saturday and Round 5 a 100 Mile Endurance on Sunday giving a varied experience for all drivers. Teams can compete in either Saturday or Sunday or both rounds as they wish, they do not have to do both.

Please note revised timings to assist long distance teams.

Welcome to one of the finest circuits ever used in British pedal car racing, a true ‘’drivers’ circuit’’. If Wolverhampton was the Spa of pedal car racing and Preston the Nurburgring, Blackbushe is our very own Oulton or Donington Park.

This year we will again have a early start on the Sunday with a 100 mile or 5 1/2 Hour race. This will give long distance teams time to travel home on the Sunday arriving home at a sensible time.

Teams not racing sunday can either depart saturday evening or camp over leaving sunday morning.

Sunday Race uses standard points system with 1st to 100 Miles or 5 1/2 hours winning.
1st – 25 points, 2nd – 20 points, 3rd – 16 points, 4th – 13 points
5th – 11 points, 6th – 10 points, 7th – 9 points, 8th – 8 points
9th – 7 points, 10th – 6 points, 11th – 5 points, 12th – 4 points
13th – 3 points, 14th – 2 points, 15th and lower – 1 point

Further information

Motor vehicles are allowed onto the main kart circuit for unloading / loading only, subject to the usual walking pace speed restriction as at all races.

You must ensure you DO NOT DRAG anything across the tarmac – please ensure trailer legs are retracted and secured, nothing is hanging down and dragging from your car or van, you don’t drag heavy toolboxes around, etc.

Overnight camping (and a wide array of other accommodation for those who prefer more comfort) is available in the area. We will be able to offer limited camping on-site with limited flush toilets (please use sparingly) you will need to bring water with you as the water on site is not drinking water. If there is demand we will look to offer a dinner/breakfast option at a reasonable price.

Be warned that many camp sites and hotels in the area will be getting full at this time of year so you are advised to book well in advance if you are not camping at the track.

Due to the length of the circuit, the field for this event is limited to 35 cars and places will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis irrespective of the entry deadline. If the 35 car limit is reached, subsequent entries will be added to the reserve list in case of drop-outs.

This fantastic circuit is definitely not one to miss! The combination of the fast straight, flowing corners, tricky chicane and gradient means this circuit packs in more challenges per lap than any other pedal car venue. In turn this provides more driver satisfaction and, of course, fun!

Generators in the pits are permitted provided you also supply suitable fire fighting equipment. There is no official noise restriction but please respect the fact with people camping over it is only polite to keep noise to a minimum, especially in the early morning.

The car park is publicly accessible from the adjoining footpath so please ensure your vehicles are locked and don’t leave any valuables on display, just as you would in any public car park.
