BP 24 Hour Endurance

The BP 24 HR is set to be one of the biggest and most spectacular events of the 2019 Karting Calendar. This ultimate test of Endurance will take place at Buckmore Park on the 6th April, running continuously through the night before the final dash to the flag on the 7th.

Key Information

Format

The 24hr Open Endurance event is designed as a team event. Teams will compete in one of two classes, Pro or Clubman. For this race, four to ten drivers would be ideal. There is no maximum number of drivers per team for this event, however, there is a minimum number of 3 drivers per team. A practice session precedes the race and this will be 40 minutes duration. All drivers in the team MUST complete a minimum of three laps during the practice period. Practice laps will not be timed and will not count as any qualifying. A 10-minute Timed Qualifying session will follow directly after the practice session, the start of this session will be signalled by a green light or flag from the start/finish line. All lap times in this session will be recorded with the fastest team taking pole position for the race. The race will begin from a Le-Mans style running start.

Price & Payment Terms

Team entry is £1899 inc Vat

A £600 non-refundable deposit is taken at the time of booking to confirm team entry, the second payment of £600 is due by 1st January, and a final payment of £699 is due by the 1st March.

Classes

All competing teams will race together at the same time, however, awards for the top 3 teams at the end of the race will be awarded by class. If during the first 4 hours of the race the Race Director feels that a team is incorrectly classified then they may change the class of any team. The “Pro” class is suited to teams with a previous competitive racing experience. “Clubman” class welcomes teams with a more limited racing background.
