Endurance Prokart Series 2015

EPS 2015, Round 1, Sunday 29th March.

Well folks, here we go for 2015 with Round 1 racing up towards us ........... many thanks to those teams already entered. If you haven't, hit the button now now please, or tell me what you're up to.

Last year, the entry fee was £125.00, plus, as it all came together, £20.00 for 3hrs morning practice. Pretty well 100% of the teams tested in the morning 100% of the time, so this year the default cost for all day is £145.00 (incl qualy & race fuel).
Provisionally, the two 4.5hr races will be £175.00.

I'll put the Final Instructions/Timetable up on in the next few days, anything else you need to know, give me a shout.

Good luck to everyone for this season, and may the best team win .......... and following on from EPS' reputation gained in 2014 ......... carry on in the skill, commonsense, safety, gentlemanly conduct, sporting behaviour and good humour departments ............. it's what we do.

Winter Series finale

Wet ? Nah.
Big respect to all of you for braving the most hideous conditions we've seen since .... er ... the last time we had hideous conditions.
Congratulations to Derek, Marcus, Joe, Shayne, Matt, Jeff & (I suppose) Pete, for taking the overall Winter Series honours. There were standout performances through the grid - great stuff.
Many thanks to Luke for snapping away regardless, Sallee for putting up with my tantrums .......... and as always .......... let's not forget the marshals.
So ........... that was the first EPS Winter Series that was.
Onwards and upwards starting 29th March.

EPS 2015 news

*Don't forget Rounds 5 & 6 of the EPS Winter Series on the 22nd.*
In case you forgot, the eight-round 2015 EPS kicks off on 29th March. As previously hinted, two of these will be 4.5hr races (June & August), the rest will be 3hr.
OK ......... for the 2015 EPS, a class system as detailed below, will be applied -
1. At the commencement of the Series, the entire entry will be split into 2 classes.
2. They will be named the Elite Class (10 teams), and the Premier Class.
3. The make-up of these classes will be determined by the Organiser from the previous season's results and other criteria at his discretion.
4. In an attempt to avoid the anomalies and sometimes injustices, of a system where the classes are 'carved in stone' at the beginning, with no changes being possible .........  this will be slightly different.
Overall race points will be scored as before, and there will still be one overall Series champion.
The Class system will apply on a race to race basis only, with the closeness of the mid-field resulting in intense competition over positions at the cut-off point !  See below -
5. Qualifying will be exactly as before, with a mix of both classes through the grid.
6. Following each race, the final three finishers in the Elite class, will be 'demoted' to the Premier class for the next round.
7. Following each race, the first three finishers in the Premier class will be 'promoted' to the Elite class for the next round.
8. At each race, the first three finishers in the Elite class will receive trophies ................... as will the first three finishers in the Premier class.
Elite runners are as follows -
Alverstone Autos, Autotekk, Balljoint, Grassroots Racing, LG Racing, Prokart Eng.1, Prokart Eng.2, Team Wraith, VKR, West Whiting Racing.
(There will be, on occasion, additions to this at the Organiser's discretion - eg Xcel Racing ......... or Jenson & Lewis pitching up). 
When you've read this about 27 times, I hope you agree with me that it adds a bit of spice to proceedings.
