Thanks Steve. I anticipate it will be quiet for a while after this, but see you at the next one hopefully.

Hi folks,

I hear things are tightening back up in the UK,
but looks like the Stretton event tomorrow is still on, great!!
I hope it is another nice nice day, like the previous 2!!

Just want to remind all in your group of The Corona Challenge race.
Its the "Do it yourself, then post online" race.
Its still going on, until Nov 1.
Can be done on same day and time as Stretton if time allows, or anytime/anywhere that is convenient for you, by Nov 1.
Must be posted on Youtube by Nov1.

The Corona now has 17 entries.
This means its now considered a "large" event and got upgraded to the 20 points scale.

So a good result at Stretton, and a top 5 speed run in The Corona (currently 42mph or higher), could earn enough points for some in your group to get into the top 10 CKWC positions, possibly even top 5!!

If your 1st event back in June had been a points race, a British cyclekart could have been a Top 3 easy and had a shot at the Championship!!
Oh, well... next year!!!

Cheers to all & Have a good time tomorrow!!!

Carlos

Well the results are in!  Thanks to Sarah for being "Clerk of the course" for the day and for interpreting her soggy clipboard of results.

Marek's result in the Sprint was actually in Jim's Dodge.

I had a lot of fun and it was a great laugh with all the guys and girls. A lovely bunch of people and I'm surprised and delighted that I came 1st. The competition was tough. Thanks to everyone who came.

What a fantastic day, great fun and hilarity.
Special thanks to Sarah
And I think we need to talk about Jim's 3sec penalty for the next event :-)

I don't think we need to talk about my 3 sec penalty for the next event. I think we should quietly forget about it and brush it under the carpet. :)

Looking at the times above, an extra 3 secs would only have moved you to second!

Hello,
Thanks for introducing a competition element to your driving day and being a part of the 2020 CycleKart World Championship!!!
Can you all confirm a few information details for me please?
Hearing from the cyclekart owner is best, but in absence to that, anyone's input is appreciated.

What is the engine in these cyclekarts? (Brand/Model/cc)
#8 Dodge Baquet
#17 ERA

In the Oct 27 track day, there are 2 DODGE and 2 BUGATTI on the results.
I believe thats the same Dodge and Bugatti being used by 2 different drivers each, and NOT 4 (or 3) different cyclekarts.
Is that correct?
 
Even though only the last 2 of the 3 British events in 2020 counted for points, the #8 Dodge and the #16 Maserati were able to finish in the Top10 (in 9th and 10th) out of the 101 cyclekarts that took part in the CKWC2020!!!
So if the 1st British event in June had points they might have been right in the mix for Top5 in the Championship.
That plus an entry in The Corona world race would have been enough for them to challenge for a spot in the Top 3, may a shot at the Title!!
So if there was any doubt out there, the answer is yes the British have a path and a chance to score well in this game.
 
In fact, in the Marques Championship, you currently already have a 2020 Champion in Bill Alexander's Maserati.
Thats a competition that builds on points scored by the best placed cyclekart of each Marque at every event.
It teams up people from across the world around their cyclekarts marque.
Even though these people never met, and may never meet, they are all actively working together for the benefit of their cyclekart's marque.
We have reached the end of the season, and the Maserati marque won the World Championship with a total of 65 points against Ford with 51.
Thats a 14 point difference, so the combined 17 points scored by Bill's Maserati at the Aug 11 and Oct 27 Stretton events were critical for Maserati to finish at the #1 spot.
On top of that, Bugatti was 3rd and MG 4th, again thanks to some points scored by Nahajski's Bugatti and Hill's MG.
There were a total of 38 Marques represented in the Championship.

Assuming the Pandemic situation may be more understood and controlled by the time it warms up again in 2021, I would like to introduce an idea for you all to consider: To travel to France to attend the Garat GP. It is supposed to be a points race next year.
I will be making the same suggestion to the French (to attend one, or more, of the British events).
It appears to be a 11hr trip by car (670 miles) between Garat and Stretton. Many of the American and Candian based cyclekarts travel this type of distance (and more) to attend events. You should consider that too, as CycleKart road trips are fun, and CycleKart road trips to attend CycleKart World Championship events are even more fun!! Hopefully in time the few German and Belgian cyclekarts may decide to travel and attend the events in GB and France too.
Just something to consider.
I understand currently the main problem is waiting to see how the Pandemic plays out.
It is likely a long tough winter ahead for Europe and N. America...

Here are the Marques and Drivers World Championship results.
I'm still missing a few bits of info to complete the other championship charts (CycleKarts, Drivers, Engines).
Hope to have all posted this coming week.

Please let me know the engine info on the Dodge and ERA, and if the Dodge and Bugatti are in fact just 2 cyclekarts (and not 3 or 4).

Thanks!!!

Good job Carlos and yes absolutely, some international meets would be fun.

Who else has a CK in the Bugatti "team" - feels like we should be celebrating! ;)

Hi Carlos, Good work there fella with the CK world championship. My Dodge has a GX200 clone engine, No makers name as it was only a cheap 38 quid one. I am amazed it has lasted as long as it has. Btw I see on Facebook we have a Mutual friend in James Auld. He's a top bloke who I like racing my dragster against and we are normally very close in our points.
Jim.

First and foremost, thanks to Carlos for all the work you have put into this.

It just adds another layer to the fun of these 'silly little machines', and being able to
boast to work that I was part of the winning Maserati team...it's hilarious!

Hi Carlos,

Despite not having a clue how this works, it's great fun and I'm looking forward to next year's championship already!

To complete your records, 17 ERA is powered by a Honda GX200.

Many thanks,
Chris......
