Excellent pictures! From which I conclude that the point in fully-faired isn't so much that it helps you go fast, so much that people can't see your facial expression while you're doing so...

Probably too many if you want to do it by age.

No it's Charles Henry.

Below is a google translate from the German velomobile forum by one of the race leaders. I found it interesting and especially the data. Maybe Geoff would like to publish a better translation in the BHPC magazine:
 
 
I wrote out my performance data:
 (for explanation: Pav average performance incl. zero values,)
 
 100 meter sprint (Flying Start):
 Vmax: 72.2 km / h (= official result)
 Pav: 276 watts
 P without_results: 350 watts
 Pmax: 634 watts
 1 lap time trial:
 Vmax: 37.89 km / h (= official measurement should rather be 60.93 km / h?)
 <no SRM measurement>
 
 1-H-criterium:
 Vav: 62.61 km / h (= official result)
 Pav: 206 watts
 P without_nulls: 261 watts
 Pmax: 888 watts
 
 15-min Criterium:
 Vav: 60.78 km / h
 Pav: 228 watts
 P without_results: 289 watts
 Pmax: 775 watts
 
 3-H-Endurance
 Vav: 56.18 km / h (= official result)
 Pav: 156 watts
 P without_nulls: 192 watts
 Pmax: 815 watts
 
 My SRM data clearly shows that I did not have to go to my performance limit and could not because of the many curves (and many HPVs in the 3 hour race).  Especially in the hourly criterion sprints and short periods of idle alternated.
 Steve Slade also impressed me a lot.  In the 3-hour race he has overtaken me despite his own lightning start (thanks to Jonathan Woolrich for the jump start) in the fifth lap and immediately accelerated the pace to shake me off.  He almost succeeded in doing so when I was suddenly caught in the fastest UV / TV and made a slight mistake.  Fortunately, Sandro had told me that Steve sometimes can not keep up with the pace in long races.  That gave me courage.  I really wanted to win and still not risk too much.  On the forest straight in front of the hairpin bend, I had Steve back in sight, but at over 62km / h was already very fast for the windy curve that precedes the hairpin bend - and then this white VM in front of me, the battle line drove and in the hairpin bend constantly pushed to the outside.  Although I could avoid a touch, but I had to put in a lot of powerful, which quit the PoB with a slight vibration - I had arrived harmless in the dark orange border area and the road I did not go out.  For the next half hour, I tried out some variations of distinct curve lines behind Steve.  It occurred to me that a wide round line is often faster than a small radius.  The large number of opponents required absolute concentration: overtake now?  left or right?  before or after the curve?  Who slows loses and who does not slow down even more - Burnout Paradise in the woods.
 After an hour and a half Steve got stuck in a group.  I knew that was the moment to attack.  34 MPH showed the sign at the finish line;  The 450 watts I pulled through to the top.  Nevertheless I was not sure about the lack of rearview mirror until I had checked whether I had actually left it ...

 Some observations / considerations
 - Better to put on new tires before than during the race.  (which I have done) - because: 2.5 hours Monza enough to scalp a Erlk├Ânig in the 30 ┬░ -45 ┬░ range)
 - The PoB is, even at rel.  strong wind with some exercise and adjacent shoulder pads mobile.
 - Streamliner like PoB or Beano win the races against three-wheeled (!) Velomobile not only on the straights, but also in the corners, because the VM behind always slip away a bit, as I could watch well.

 To event
 That the BHPA and its members are a committed group of experienced HPV enthusiasts, you can already see on their website, the T-shirts, or the beautifully designed racing documentary.  The location Betteshanger Park is just terrific.  Everything close together and even a simple restaurant on the square.
 Five races on three days were not only a challenge for the participants, but also for the organizers.  Unfortunately, the results of the individual races could not be communicated in a timely manner.  Thanks to video, stop-watches and goodwill on the part of the organizers, the timing problems were finally resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
 Thanks BHPA for this wonderfull inspiring HPV World Championship
