The Austria Formula 1 race will be shown on our big screen in the Surtees hospitality suite. A specially prepared buffet and club bar will make for a relax atmosphere.
Qualifying for the karting 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.
This round is a 69 laps (tbc) 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. As per the 2014 F1 rules, we will be awarding double points for the last round (12th October)!
