I have entered a team in the 24hr Pedalcar Race at Shenington in Oxfordshire on the weekend of 29th & 30th June. Unfortunately one of the team members has had to drop out  so we are looking for a suitable recruit to fill his seat. There will be about 45 cars competing on the track, which is just over 1km long, and last year as a team we finished 7th. The team will consist of 6 riders/drivers so in total you will probably ride for about  4 hours in 30 minute shifts with breaks of 3 hours in between. All accommodation (tent) will be provided along with meals. The remaining members of the team are Sam, Twed, John Lucian, Leo McNally and Liam Goodman so if you are interested in joining them please get in touch.

You were a star that year!
 
We had had 2 teenage drivers drop out 2 days before the event and would have pulled the team if you hadn't stepped in.
Racing is life...
Anything which happens before or afterwards is just standing around waiting to race....
