Countdown to Rnd 2

Here we are with just over 15 days to go before the BRCA Large Scale Off Road Section arrives at the 2015 May Bashfest site in Welford and builds our pop up track out of 600m of 80mm pipe.

Whilst Friday will be our build day, last minute adjustments will be undertaken on Saturday morning ahead of what will be the familiar format of open practice on Saturday after a drivers briefing and then our actual single day national on the Sunday.

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure the track is not too far from the camping facilities ensure you have means to wheel your vehicle from any remote pitting area to the track.

Those camping over need to purchase a camping ticket for the weekend from http://bankholidaybashfest.co.uk/.This single fee covers 1, 2, 3  or even 4 nights so please ensure you purchase your camping ticket.

Standard practice and race entry fees will be incurred like any other national weekend.

The BHBF venue is remote and as such the nearest “large” submarkets will be in Rugby, Lutterworth, Kettering, Market Harborough which will be accessible via the A14,M6,M1, A6.

For those who normally bring along Fido then could they please visit http://bankholidaybashfest.co.uk/ and respect the organisers rules concerning dogs.

Like our other national meetings if the dongle and IT are working then live timing should be available on the internet along with a few images via our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/brcalsor

See you all in a few days,

2015 BRCA LSOR Rnd 2 – Bank Holiday Bashfest

With round 1 over its now onto the second section event of 2015, our visit to the BHBF venue with our pop up track within their weekend of fun which takes place just off J1, of the A14 south of Welford in Northamptonshire.

Details on how to get to the venue can be found on the organisers website –
http://bankholidaybashfest.co.uk

Our track will be one of a number of tracks onsite during the weekend but will be dedicated to those who are participating in the 2015 BRCA LSOR series just like attending any other BRCA round with a back to basic feel. We will have a working PA, race control and marked out track within a fenced off area to our safety officers satisfaction. Like all section events the only charge will be for racing, practice and camping.

Prior to the event if you are planning on camping over the weekend then please purchase a £10 BRCA camping event ticket via http://bankholidaybashfest.co.uk which will cover your total stay, 1 night, 2 nights or even 3 nights if you stay until Monday morning.

If like me, you are staying local then make the gate steward aware that you are attending the BRCA event and show them your 2015 BRCA card.

If any BRCA national participant wishes to use any of the BHBF tracks or participate in there events over the weekend then a BHBF driver ticket needs to be purchased alongside paying your BRCA race fee.

Likewise if any BHBF attendee has a compliant vehicle and wishes to participate in the BRCA LSOR series then show your interest to either myself, Steve Jones, Andy Knight or Paul Gresty during Saturday practice.

I look forward to seeing our BRCA national racers at the BHBF event and meeting fellow large scale owners during the weekend.

a) you turn up on Sunday to race and have not pre-registered;

b) if you are onsite on Saturday and leave it until Sunday morning to pay your race fees.

 

The inclusion of these fees is to encourage you to pre-register which helps the race director plan the weekend before arriving at the venue and as such for Rnd 1 online booking in will close on Wednesday 25th March.
