Festival Entry Closing dates
Fresh off the back of the Committee meeting, we have news on the Entry Cut off for the Rotax Festival, as well as more information for the weekend. Please do share this information and get the word out.
Due to the massive lean from the Senior Max entrants towards the O Plate over the festival class, regulation 10 of the Festival Regulations has come into effect and we have cancelled the Senior max class at the festival, this has however, given us more time to allocate to the O Plate which has surpassed our expectations. As such, a revised timetable has been created and added to the other Rotax Festival documents on our website. If you haven’t done so already, make sure you give them a read through to the end, where you will find an explanation on the structure.
The Entries for the Senior Max O-Plate will close tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7pm. No late entries will be accepted after this time. Please ensure your tyre orders have been sent to us at the circuit, or given to Mike at the kart shop. A tyre order form is available on our website. Lastly, due to the control tyres, it is advised that you bring a tyre spike to aid with storage of your allocated tyres. If you do not have one, your tyres will need to be stacked in storage over the weekend. If you have any spare tyre spikes you don’t mind lending to those who don’t have one, please do bring them along, they will be a great help. 🙂
For all other Rotax Festival classes (Minimax, Junior Max, Rotax 177 & Masters), entries will close at 5pm on Friday. Entries for Junior Max and Minimax have been capped at 30, so if you have not entered yet, please do so as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.
We are looking for people to help us out over the weekend. We will need some extra hands in parc fermé to help oversee and enforce the event regulations. If this sounds like a little too much pressure – it just means you get to shout at naughty people all day long! – It’s fun, really. If you’re going to be around this weekend and you fancy giving us a hand, please do let us know through Facebook, email or phone. Contact details are on our website.
Now for the fun bit!
We have already posted about how we want to make this a weekend to remember, we not only managed to secure the Minimax E Plate and Senior Max O Plate, we also secured Rotax Grand Final ticket for the O Plate and Junior Max winners this weekend. We announced that TDM Media have agreed to film the event for broadcast both online and on Motorsport tv. We also had JRM approach us regarding their Formula Ford Scholarship program, allowing you to set your fastest times around Brands Hatch using their simulators for a chance to win a fully funded year in Formula Ford. Then we announced the evening entertainment of a Surf Board Rodeo and the Human Table Football from R&R entertainment. Well to try and make it a little more fun… How about we carry on the competitive spirit into the evening with a little tournament? If you fancy putting together a team of 5 for the Human Table Football to battle it out against the other Drivers, Teams, Family and Friends, please do let us know and we’ll try and put something together.
As I mentioned at the start of this post, especially for the O Plate competitors, it’s not long now until the weekend and it’s even shorter until the entry cut off. So please do share this post or page to whoever may be entered, or considering entering. It’s just 3 more days until the weekend starts with Friday Practice, reserved just for the festival competitors before the first ever Rotax festival, supported by JAG Rotax themselves. Whatever you get up to in the following days, have fun and we’ll see you all on Friday.
