How’s the weekend going to work?

On Friday, we’re treated to three twenty minute practice sessions per class (Open, 2 Litre and E30).

Keen to walk the circuit? On Friday afternoon, Hampton Downs have kindly allowed for a circuit walk from 1700 hours. Sign in at Race Admin and grab a high vis vest. Great way to get in a spot of exercise!

Come Saturday, each class has one 20 minute qualifying session and two races. Sunday morning treats us to our final sprint race.

From there we’re straight into our second and final endurance round of the season. We have two 15 minute qualifying sessions; one before lunch and one after, then we’re into our 1 Hour race to finish of a jam packed weekend of racing!

This is all on the INTERNATIONAL circuit!
