Buckmore F1 Canadian Grand Prix Special
Emulate five of the most most exciting F1 Grands Prix of the year at Buckmore! For the Spanish, Canadian*, British, Indian and Brazilian* 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 meal. 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.
The races will be over the number of laps stated, or by the maximum time, whichever comes first.
* As the Canadian and Brazilian Grands Prix are later in the day, you will enjoy the karting event first and then relax afterwards by watching the action with a meal. For these two races we can of course open the club bar so that you can also enjoy a drink while you watch! This round is a 70 lap or 75 minute race.
What is more, the top point scoring driver across all five 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.
