2021 Aug 28 - Grimsthorpe Speed Trials
« on: 07 August 2020, 12:46:01 pm »
We've got provisional agreement for cycleKarts to be involved in the Grimsthorpe Speed Trials on 28th August 2021.  Graham and I had a call with the main organiser today and they're keen to have us.   You can find out more about the event at http://www.speedtrials.co.uk.

It's held at Grimsthorpe Castle which is near Bourne, the home of ERA.

The event is a 1/2 mile "spirited demonstration run" with unofficial timing.  Similar to the Goodwood Revival, period "pre-war" dress is encouraged.   It's likely that "competitors" will be able to camp on the Friday night.

There's lots still to be confirmed including the ever-present question of insurance.   Speed trial entry this year was due to be £40 for a car with driver and one extra person, which is the same cost as 2 adults paying for entry to the event at the gate - so very reasonable!

We know it's a long way off, but it would be helpful to have an indication of who might be up for coming.

I don't think that Grimsthorpe is a confirmed event yet, but if it goes ahead I am absolutely sure you would be most welcome!

That sounds really interesting, many thanks you two!
If I'm still alive, I will be there with my 1906 Grand Prix Renault (just to make our friends from over the Channel feel more at home)!
