GRADS CHAMP

For those who've left the BUKC and want to continue racing!

 

GRADS CHAMP

We all know that racing in the BUKC is one of the highlights of university but we also know it is difficult to continue racing after uni especially when drivers graduate at different times, you're starting out in your career and saving a deposit for a house etc. So continue to racing at ridiculously cheap prices (aka BUKC prices) we created the BUKC Grads Champ - you lucky buggers!

 

The Championship

Following on from the success of the inaugural 2017 Grads Champ, the BUKC Grads Champ returns for 2018 and takes place over 5 race days between the start of May 2018 and the end of October 2018:

  • Sun 6th May - Rye House, Herts
  • Sun 3rd June - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire
  • Sun 1st July - Buckmore Park, Kent
  • Sun 5th Aug - Lydd, Kent
  • Sun 7th Oct - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire

Each team may consist of between 2 and 3 drivers for each round.

The price of entry is £320 inc VAT per team per race day. The price has gone up because we have changed the format after feedback from the 2017 season; every driver now gets more track time with our new formats detailed below:

THE FORMATS

 

Following on from the 2017 Grads Champ, we have listened to everyone's feedback and the overwhelming response is that drivers would like more track time to justify travelling across the country, more practice before jumping into a race, and quite a few would like us to vary the format a little.

So I'm pleased to announce that we've come up with some great new formats so that every driver gets at least 50 minutes and up to 75 minutes of track time at each race day depending on team size.

The formats, designed for teams of between 2 and 3 drivers, will be thus:

Round 1: Sun 6th May at Rye House

  • 30 minutes practice / qualifying
  • 3 x 15 minute races (random grids)
  • 1 hour 15 minute endurance race (grid from quali, min 2 stops, at least one driver change)

Overal result taken from best 3 race results (endurance awarded same points as sprints)


Round 2: Sun 3rd June at Whilton Mill

  • 30 minutes practice
  • 3 x 40 minute races (random grids, min 1 stop per race, driver changes allowed)

Overall result taken from all 3 race results.

  • 2 hour endurance race (min 3 stops, at least one driver change)
