Details for The Gravesend racing on the Sunday are:

we have the lower 2 circuits of the track (click to see pic) booked from 10-3 pm 

Sign-on starts ~9:30am

Race format (split into Fast and Slow groups depending on numbers)
2 hrs
The track is booked for 5 hrs to accommodate both a fast and a slow 2hr race, (but if numbers allow all to run in one race it could be increased to 3 hrs, or do an all-in 2hr race followed by another shorter race format to get full value for money from the track)

The two race circuits can be used in a number of different combinations/directions, which can be decided on the day.

Can we please have some volunteers to help organise??

Also worth noting: If travelling to/from Gravesend via the Dartford/bridge/tunnel don't forget it operates by numberplate recognitions system. You can pay in advance or by midnight the day after you cross.

Good choice to have a longer race for once.

Fortunately, the weather didn't arrive while the racing was going on. Looked a bit wetter on some parts of the M25 on the way home.

Results from the electronic timing system are now at: http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Data/Sites/1/media/events/events19/10gravesend/index.html

Unfortunately the generator conked out after about 54 minutes. While the laptop continued on internal battery power, the RFID reader stopped working. The generator was eventually re-started, but without the required manual intervention to re-connect to the tag reader, no further data was acquired until I returned to the system after the end of the race.

On that basis, I've adjusted the timing data we do have to be a 51 minute race (thereby capturing a final good read of everyone's tag).

Finish times were recorded by stopwatch, but we have a ~20 minute gap between the last good timing data and somebody realising there was a problem and starting counting laps manually at 1:15:00 into the race. In the absence of lap counts for everyone from GPS data, I think the best approach will be to treat this as a separate 45 minute race...
