Fowlmead and the Criterium league

Racing at Fowlmead is on the 8th and 9th of August. I hope to see lots of trikes there again as in 2013. I have been talking to The BHPC racing secretary and he has agreed to have the following races over the two days.
There is no pre entry but if you will be going please could you let me know by email at or telephone 0184433945. It would help to know numbers.

Saturday A.M.: 15 minute race on the top circuit
5 lap time trial on the lower circuit (Aprox 6 miles)
Saturday P.M.: 45 minute race on the full circuit
Mixed team relay. (Top circuit as in 2013)
The teams will decided on the day based on the time trial results.
You must do the five lap time trial to qualify for the team relay.

Sunday A.M.: 30 minute criterium on the top circuit for un-faired and slower machines (upright trikes).
30 minute criterium for the faster Velomobiles.
This race will have the 2 tighter turns and a chicane like the race in 2013
Sunday P.M. 2 hour race for all on the full circuit.

Signing on is usually 10:00 A.M. with the first race at 11:00
There is no need to pre enter these races. Just come and sign on on the day. You don’t have to ride all the events just what you fancy. The BHPC would be grateful of any help with marshalling some of the races.
The entry fee is £10.00 per day for non BHPC members. There is camping available on site BUT the gates are locked at 8:00 pm. There will be someone with a key but they won’t really want to open the gate at 11:00pm for some drunken old trikie.
The Betty Covington Trophy for the criterium championship will be awarded to the fastest T.A. member in the Sunday morning criterium.
