Whilton Mill Endurance Race, Tues 25th Oct 2022
« on: 19 Jul 22, 11:57 am »
I have booked Whilton Mill small kart circuit for 25th oct 2022 between 9am and 4pm for a couple of 2hr endurance races. There will a practice of 1hr till 10am and the 1st race will start at 10.30 till 12.30. Then Lunch. The second heat will be 1.45 till 3.45 and followed by a presentation. A minimum of two drivers per car and a maximum of 4. The cost is £80 per team(only £20 per driver if you have 4, so a real bargain). Please put your team name and amount of drivers down asap if you want to go. Ideally by 23/07/2022.
We can skip lunch if people would rather do the whole race in one hit, again let me know by posting on here.
 Team names can be anything you like within reason.
 we can get transponders to count the laps, best lap time and last lap time ect.
 It's gonna be a fantastic day with first class facilities at the circuit.
Teams get your name down now!!!

If it's raining on the day here is a video of Marek driving my kart with expert skill showing how well it handles in the wet.

Very interested in doing this, just need to get some more experience of driving Jane and doing some adjustments, which should happen at Sywell. Need to know fuel usage, fuel endurance, any evident symptoms of low fuel, tyre wear, brake wear, what spares I will need, etc.
Even if Jane turns out to be not quite ready for what looks to be an arduous event, then can probably come along to assist with the event 🤗

A few people have said they are struggling to get a second driver for the endurance race so we may do something else instead. If anyone has any ideas I am more than willing to change the format and do what the majority want.
There is a great restaurant at the track and lunch can be pre booked.
Hopefully here is a sample menu.

Hi Ian, The track is booked between 9 and 4. We may do a 1hr endurance race so we can have single drivers. I don't know all the numbers yet but a guess of about 8. I don't know if transponders are included. when I get a chance i will call and find out.
