The Summer Iron Man series is a 3* Championship series of eight rounds. A driver's best six scores count towards the Championship. This series is for experienced drivers with stamina. It is not necessary to compete in all rounds, one off entries are very welcome. Be aware that this series traditionally sells out very fast and drivers wishing to compete in the whole Championship should book early to avoid disappointment.
The Solo 60 runs from November to February and is a non-championship series of events. The format is exactly the same as the Iron Man. For those seeking a winter 1hr Championship, see Man of Steel (left).
Date: Sunday, 2nd September 2012.
Time: 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
Cost: £85 per RX 390, £12 per Meal only.
Buckmore 'Spa' Grand Prix
Emulate the three most exciting F1 Grands Prix of the year at Buckmore! For the Monaco, Silverstone and Spa races we have arranged a rather special race day.
*Watch the Grand Prix with fellow petrol-heads in the Surtees Suite on our big screen whilst enjoying a buffet lunch. After the race pop on your race gear and prepare to replicate the race (minus any crashes we hope!).
Qualifying will be F1 style with Q1, Q2 and Q3 deciding the final order. The race will then mimic the number of laps of the F1 GP (Monaco 78 laps or 90 minutes, Silverstone 52 laps or 60 minutes and Spa 44 laps or 45 minutes).
The races will be over the number of laps stated, or by the maximum time, whichever comes first.
This third round (Spa) is a 44 lap or 45 minute race.
What is more, the top point scoring driver across all three Buckmore GP Specials will be crowned GP Drivers Champion and will be awarded a very special trophy.
Note: Whilst scores will be awarded and totalled to decide who will be crowned GP Champion, all races are stand alone events and one-off entries will be more than welcome.
11:45 Arrive and sign on and then proceed to watch GP while enjoying a buffet style lunch.
