Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to the 2018 BHPC Race Season... First race is at Hillingdon on Sunday 8th April.

Any offers of help with organising will be welcome as always...

The first race of the year is usually fairly busy with membership renewals as well as race entry...
If you are planning to renew your membership please get there in plenty of time... If you could bring the correct amount of money (or a cheque) that would be helpful as change is sometimes in short supply... You can of course join or renew via the online shop before the event.... Standard adult membership is still just £15 and we now have the option of e-membership (no paper magazine, download only) at a ridiculously cheap £6 - https://shop.bhpc.org.uk/2018-2019" rel="nofollow - https://shop.bhpc.org.uk/2018-2019

If you're new to racing please have a quick look at the rules here... http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Events/2014/rules-and-classes.aspx" rel="nofollow -
12:15pm: "Fast" race - 30 minutes + 1 lap Anti-Clockwise

1:30pm: "Slow" race - 30 minutes + 1 lap Clockwise

2:15pm: "Fast" race - 30 minutes + 1 lap Clockwise.
Points will be awarded equally for clockwise and anticlockwise races...

Thanks to everybody who came along and braved the grotty contitions today, and to Andrew and Heather for sorting the timing and race results.

Most importantly of course, thanks to Alice who sold £7,895 worth of stickers ensuring that the committee will once again be off on a Caribbean cruise shortly. We will be thinking of you all.

Hi folks thanks once again for an interesting days racing and to all the folks that made it so, first race for me was a mini disaster as my helmet came off because the strap worked loose,  thank you to the kind gentleman for retrieving it for me, so after a short pit stop and being in the fast race I was at the back back by about two laps, second race was not too bad apart from the weather and thanks to Neil for helping me along by making me work harder so here are a few photo's from the slow race not sure what was more blurry me after two late nights or the camera probably on the wrong shutter speed after me messing with it in the week so here goes anyway copy any you want.
Cheers.

The results are coming soon! The results are all safely gathered in but there was a major loss of willpower in the Nottingham area late last night. Hopefully all will be restored to normal operation by later today.

My apologies to anyone waiting for their first points of the season.

With one exception (David L'Hostis) we have a full set of tag data for all riders. You may relive the entire experience, although hopefully in somewhat greater comfort, here:

Andrew,
before these go Official you should check the classes. Chris (Ratracer genesis) is down as "O/P/U" and I'm pretty certain he had a tailfairing (O/P). I'm also guilty as I think I put down O/Mf/M on my signon sheet - oops!

Great work though and I forgot how good the tining system visualisation is!

Thanks again
Neil

Date Posted: 09 April 2018 at 10:50pm
You're only down as O/Mf Neil, which is correct.
What you write on the sign-in sheet doesn't really matter to be honest. It's the twit person entering the details into the spreadsheet at sign-on that gets it right or wrong, usually based on previous knowledge of the riders and machines together with a bit of guesswork... Big smile

It must be excruciating to watch Slash chasing you down in the second fast race. The catch point (just after the start/finish straight) is surprisingly accurate given that the whole thing is fabricated from one timing point.

Thanks everyone for a great days racing at Hillingdon yesterday. Especially to Alan, Andrew, Heather and Nikki for organising.

The weather was more "April" than we usually encounter in the inaugural event of the race season, but as always it was great to see a good turnout and a wide range of HPVs in the mix including a Moulton, some lowracers & midracers, a beano streamliner, a fully faired pedal car, an upwrong, a few velomobiles, and a healthy selection of trikes (both regular and recumbent).  

It was also most welcoming to see several new faces to the BHPC, turning up, signing up and giving it a go (hopefully we'll see you all again soon).

Yep,  I was part faired 

Unfortunately the half that was faired was the rear rather than the top half, which would have kept the rain off!!!

Date Posted: 10 April 2018 at 1:04am
Thanks for putting the results up Andrew.

James's Baron (I mean MY Baron that James was riding), should only be OPU.

If anyone else has any quibbles, I suggest a deadline of Wed eve??

Wow! That is excellent! It's come a long way from stopwatches and counting laps, though it still doesn't make my position look any better 😀
Sorry for holding up the start of the first race! I guess karma was the cause of my poor performance, that and riding some funny upright three wheeled contraption with silly long cranks, what was I thinking!
I think short cranks and some t******g, or back to the low racer for me.

I think there is a mistake as I was in front of James Hamilton in Race 2 Round 2. Somehow it is correct in the forum but not in the final results

No you never feel Slash is chasing you down when he's overlapping you regularly, and just riding round avoiding you. 

And what's excruciating is sticking race numbers on your Kingcycle and packing it in your car, making a packed lunch, getting an early night feeling good then waking up a few hours later realising you have bug and spending the next three days in bed and missing the whole event. Certain amount of luck is needed in racing.

Next one I'm tied up driving 800 miles to the NW Scottish coast for a holiday as well. At least Betteshanger will only be a short drive away.
