This is the place for discussion about the 4th round of the 2018 BHPC races on the cycle circuits at Betteshanger Country Park (near Deal) in Kent.

 

This one is being organised by the 2018 World Championships organising committee (so we can check out the lay of the land and track configurations in preparation for the biggie in July).

Race formats will soon be posted here. There’s a chance that they might mirror some of those we have planned for the World champs (but I promise none of them will be 3 hrs long!!).

Erm.. I think this topic already exists:
forum.bhpc.org.uk/2018-round-4-betteshanger-saturday-12th-may_topic6687
Interesting that the Forum seems to allow multiple topics with the same name though.

Provisional race formats for Betteshanger on 12 May are as follows:-

1.   15min + 1 lap (clockwise, Top circuit)......SLOW RACE then FAST RACE
2.    90 min + 1 lap (clockwise, full circuit).....ALL TOGETHER
3.    ~100 metre sprints (subject to the sprint timing system working)

Points will be spread equally over all three events.
Jonathan will be test driving his speed trap system for the sprints (in preparation for the World Championships). If there are any teething problems we'll just split the points 50:50 over the 15 and 90 min races.

Sign-on will start at 10am. first race will be soon after 11am.....

For those driving down to Betteshanger this weekend for Saturday's BHPC races, if you're using the Dartford tunnel/bridge, don't forget you need to pay the tolls (online) by midnight the day after you cross. you can also pay in advance (which is the best way to avoid forgetting and getting fined.

Not easy to park trackside. It's up a steep slope. Maybe even longer race? I posted in the other thread on the subject.

They usually only allow a small number of cars up to the track. we'll see what the score is when we get there and give first dibs to those hulking all the race organising kit....

I will need some help with the sprint timing gear. In particular, the start and finish signs need 2 people to set up. If we can get those up before the long race, I can potter on with the rest. 
Looks like it will be 50m timed this time, unless a longer wire turns up today.
