Beetle Only Grid at Lydden Hill 22nd Oct

October 15th, 2011

We will be joining in the festivities at Lydden Hill Race Circuit with the South East Motor Sports Enthusiasts Club (SEMSEC) on 22nd Oct 2011.

This will be the first Aircooled Beetle Only Grid Line up for nearly 2 decades! Not only that but we will also see Dave Dodge debut in the VolksWorld race car - as he has earned his drive as the Volksworld Competition Winner (having proved his piloting skills at the Daytona Karting Day, and completing some intensive driver training, acquiring his Race License, and spending lots of time behind the wheel at a recent shake down at Brands Hatch) - Good luck Dave.. a surname could never have been more appropriate!

The day will see 8 races featuring all sorts of Marques and machinery in different classes and challenges. Bang smack in the middle of the day will see the VW BEETLE CHALLENGE RACE - Race 4

For those who haven’t visited the Lydden Hill Circuit before, its a club racers favourite, and spectators benefit from all the action taking place in a valley so you can pretty much see the entire track from most vantage points. It’s a small circuit, but dynamite is small too.. and delivers some explosive results… action is never in short supply at Lydden.. that’s for sure! - Qualifying will commence at 12:30 and the Racing will start at 14:00

For the Drivers..

Sign on is at 10:30

Scrutineering  at 10:35

Drivers Briefing: 12:00

New Drivers Briefing: 12:05 (That’s you Dave!)

Beetle Qualifying at 13:10

Beetle Race will  be at around 14:45 (TBC on the day)

Note to the spectators: It’s a really friendly affair with full access to the pits/paddocks so you can bring the family along and soak up the atmosphere (The aircooled brigade are very welcoming.. so if you have kids that want to have a sit in the cars etc.. feel free to pop over and chat over a brew!)

Also good luck to Dave Charlton who will be racing with the BARC TinTops on the same day (The BARC have been really, really great to us as we have been ’slowly’ building cars and racing - so it’s an unfortunate clash of dates on this landmark event)

Spectators are FREE for under 12’s (Or those that - Ahem - look under twelve!) and ¬£12 for over 12’s
