Slight change to the day's times.
Dave, Arthur and all the regulars from The Winchester Club
* are proud to sponsor Round 2 of The Thread Karting Challenge
to be held on Sunday 14th October
at Whilton Mill Kart Circuit
Scroll back a page or two and you'll see that Round 1 in May saw a hotly contested scrap (for all positions other than first). But don't worry if you couldn't make it last time, as this 'championship' is open to all at every round and is, actually, just an excuse for larking about on a Sunday. You're very welcome to bring along non-PHers who fancy a bit of a race too; they were certainly made to feel very welcome last time.
I'm sure previous participants will confirm that it's a cracking circuit, with as many opportunities to nip past someone as there are to overcook it and end up grazing the vegetation. It's also very centrally located, just past Northampton on the M1, to afford as many of you as possible to the chance to join us.
Last time, post-race scoff was so bad it was hilarious (never decide to eat at a pub who say they can fit sixteen of you in with only 15 minutes notice on a Sunday!). If people can confirm their intention to stay for a bite to eat when they book, I'll make sure, with a bit of advance notice, that we get in at the nearby Beefeater for the regulation beefburgers.
The format of the day is (roughly):
11:00 Arrive (this bit isn't rough; it's precise!
11:15 Briefing and issue of helmets and suits
11:30 Qualifying: 20 minute session to decide Race 1 grid order
11:50 Race 1: 20 minutes
12:30 Race 2: 20 minute (with reverse grid from result of Race 1)
13:00 Results and presentations
13:30 End of session
If you're thinking of coming along and don't feel that an hour on track is very much, with very few exceptions I can confirm that most drivers last time were utterly knackered at the end.
The cost of the event is £73
. I managed to book May's event at 2011 prices, but they've caught up with us this time, so the circuit cost has gone up from £65 to £70 per person. The other £3 is a contribution towards a nice trophy.
Please sign up below. I'll change the 'Paid' column once I have received your money. If you still have the payment details from last time, do pay me ASAP; if you didn't come last time, PM me and I'll provide payment account details.
Absolute latest date for payment is the 28th September.
So, get your name down!*The Club has a discreet entrance; you could easily walk straight by. Drop me a PM if you're a FaceBookist and fancy a quiet repose therein, so PH name and real name can be reconciled.
