Endurance Prokart Series Round 3

Grassroots Racing - very unlucky to juuuuuuust miss a podium in the last minutes of the race.

Well done to all competitors - some great drives.

A lot of great racing, some people getting imaginative on pit strategy and tightening up their pit stops, some unbelievable lap times, qualifying as close as you like, a friendly paddock, kind weather, what's not to like.

 A rash of king-pin/stub-axle failures probably ......... but that's karting eh ?

Thanks to Prokart Engineering & Clay Kart Shop for the generous prize donations.
Thanks to Lee, Ian & Chris Rennison, Sallee, Luke, Simon Whitty, & all the marshals - without whom etcetc.

Hope to see you all at Round 4, July 27th.

* Please note that there is an addendum to the Rules & Regulations, that clarifies exactly what constitutes a race finish, and therefore the award of points. Please take the time to read it - it may be to your advantage *

There are some other teams in genesis (!) that also seem to think that driving round in circles for 3hrs sounds like fun ....... let me know what you're up to.

If you haven't got tyres, give Mike at the Clay Kart Shop a call now. 

Final instructions and timetable on the right.

 Just to confirm some procedures to save me repeating myself at the Drivers Briefing.

  • Start. After qualifying, we will have the grid formation. Form up in the pitlane and at the allotted time you will be released by the marshal for the formation lap. This will be 'controlled' by the front row drivers, who will keep it slow and organised. No weaving/tyre warming ! As the field enters the start/finish straight, the decision will be made whether all is well, and if so ...... off we go.
  • Pitstops. All teams must make a minimum of two pitstops. The kart will be weighed every time it enters the pits, and the number of stops will be logged by the weighbridge marshal. Do not 'charge' at the weighbridge - slow and calm please.
  • Fuel Stops. After (slowly) leaving the weighbridge, stop at the fuelbay 'entrance'. Turn off engines, exit the kart, remove the fuel cap (NOT on your way in), place cap in seat, 'man' the fire extinguisher. Push the kart into the bay - you cannot work on the kart in the fuelbay. The marshal will fuel the kart and replace the cap. On exit, pull well clear and do what you need to do (ballast change etc).
  • Any other queries - please see the Rules & Regulations or ask.

Round 3 Endurance Prokart Series 22nd June

Round 3 ...... it's coming ! Really !

Trophies await.

The online entry thing on the right is slightly different - it has a choice of 'race only' at £125.00, or 'race plus morning test' at £145.00.
You'll work it out - and thanks to those that have done so.

To those that haven't - feel free to get your entry in.

I'll send out a timetable etc in due course - test from 09.30 ...............

Latest stuff

Pictures Round 2
Many thanks to Luke Massey.
June testing.
As you all know, the next round isn't until 22nd June, but to keep your hand in, why not get yourselves together for a test.

The circuit is extremely busy now, but has no hire-kart events on 3rd or 4th June.

If enough of you give Lee a call, I'm sure that he would be pleased to accommodate  you for a reasonably priced eps/prokart dedicated afternoon or something.

Over to you ............ call the circuit now on 01935 83713.

It has been mentioned that at Round 2, the timetable was a bit too stretched out. This will be addressed for Round 3, as the whole day will have a slightly different format ..............................

Race-day testing.
For all the remaining rounds, we now have the race mornings available for testing - provisionally this will be £20.00 for 3hrs - 09.30 to 12.30.

This session will run straight into qualifying.

The revised timetable will be along the lines of -

09.30 - 12.30 test.

12.30 - 13.00 qualifying.

13.30 - 16.30 race.

All other details to follow.

At Round 2, tyres weren't a huge issue. I'm guessing that what you have now are a bit passed it. New sets will be available now or very soon, and I suspect there will be a backlog ............ so probably an idea would be to get your name down for some.

It would be good to support our circuit shop, who will charge you no more than anywhere else (as far as I'm aware), he'll fit them for you, and they're right there on the spot. Way to go.

With the revised format, signing-on & pre-race scrutineering will happen during the morning test.

Post-race scrutineering in parc-ferme will be as previous rounds. As some of you know, at Round 2, engines from all of the first 3 home were inspected for eligibility, and the results stood.
In future, to everyones benefit, these technical inspections will always take place.
