New for 2020
We took your feedback on board and as a result, we will now be running a minimum driver weight of 70kg in the Pro Class, more details below.
A 30-minute qualifying session is followed by a non-stop 3-hour endurance race.
The minimum age to take part is 16 (16 & 17 year-olds must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 plus). The minimum height to safely operate our karts is 5ft (152cm) and the maximum height is 6’4” (195cm). No experience is necessary to enter the “Clubman” class but in order to race in the “Pro” class we recommend teams have some previous racing experience.
We recommend to include two to six drivers per team.
The BP Endurance Series has two classes. The “Pro” Class is for experienced drivers/teams and those looking to compete in the 4-round Championship. The “Clubman” class is for less experienced drivers & teams. There are top 3 trophies for Pro & Clubman.
If during the race the Race Director feels that a team is incorrectly classified then they may change the class of any team.
