I can now confirm that camping is available at Darley on the Fri and Sat eves.
 
For anyone wanting to camp, the gates will be closed (but not locked). Just let yourself in (but please close the gates behind you) and park in the comeptitors car park (up near the toilets). Price is £5 per pitch per night.
 
I'll collect camping fees off people during at race sign-on on the Saturday.
 
Its very basic facilities (grass, toilets and fresh air), don't think there is drinking water available.
 
I'm intending to be there both nights.....

If trying to use a satnav to find Darley Moor please note the circuit itself doesn't have an actual postcode. The nearest postcode to the circuit entrance is DE6 2GT; the nearest postcode on the A515 is DE6 2ET. As neither of these will get you to the actual circuit entrance you may be better off using a grid reference:
Latitude: 52.980658N
Longitude: 1.7488W

Once again David L'Hostis's tags weren't entirely reliable so if he, or anyone else, has better intel than this on his number of laps in the second race then I'm happy to fix.

I am sure why it missed so many laps. In any case, I did 16 laps and finished in between the ice vtx, i.e. after Matthew Le Ruez

The timing data for the 55-min race is now available on the BHPC website:

There was a technical problem with the timing system for the first (slower) 3-lap race and the faster 3-lap race needs a bit of cleaning up before it's presentable enough to be seen in public.

Thanks David. I don't knpw why your tags are missed so often; your tags for the Worlds were absolutely fine, it's just the regular BHPC ones that have a problem.

Many thanks for those organising the race and also to Andrew for getting the results published in good time.
Think there maybe an error in Mike Burrow's time in the 3 lap though.

Mike DNFed so he gets the same time as the leader however he shouldn't get the same laps as the leader. Does anyone know how many laps Mike completed or do I need to settle down with a big bucket of popcorn and watch the video?

Big thanks to the race organisers, the timing organisers, and all the spectators and racers for a great event.
 
Some observations:
Attendance was up
Speeds were up
 
Possible contributors for this:
A WC21018 bounce effect
The involvement of the magnificent ICE team
Back to back racing
Camping on site

Yes, it was great to see such a good turnout.
We also had a few new folks racing for the first time, which was equally encouraging.

This year I've been experimenting with ways to make races more appealing/accessible in order to improve turnout (e.g. back-to-back Sat & Sun races and aligning race days with other events such as the York Rally to make them more worthwhile to those who have to travel from afar).

I'm currently putting the race calendar together for 2019 and am aiming for at least two thirds of the races to be Sat/Sun weekend events (either at the same location or two locations in the same vicinity).
