The news that you’ve all been waiting for is at last here. Well mostly. The calendar remains provisional for now, but this is next year as we know it today. We don’t have prices yet and these are still a couple of weeks away, but at least this will allow you to put some dates in your diary.
As soon as we have firm prices agreed with BARC, we will start to open the entries to the races using our time-honoured system on the website. We will email you a week before entries open and the forms become available, so you’ll have some notice. As per Silverstone 24hr, you will need to enter the drivers for your race entry to be valid; and those drivers will have to be members of the club.
|27th/28th April||Silverstone||24 hour|
|8th/9th June||Pembrey||Double-six hour|
|10th/11th August||Snetterton 300||3 hour|
|6th/7th/8th Sept||Anglesey||24 hour|
|26th/27th Oct||Spa||24 hour|
|16th/17th Nov||Brands Hatch||2 hour|
As you may know, we have now launched in Portugal, as well has having a sister series in Belgium; and the Citybug series in Holland, so in total we are invited to the following races:
|30th/31st March||Zolder, Holland||8 hour|
|7th April||Braga, Portugal||6 hour|
|20th/21st April||Magny Cours, France||6 hour|
|22nd/23rd June||Anneau du Rhin||6 hour|
|23rd June||Portimao, Portugal||6 hour|
|1st Sept||Estoril, Portugal||6 hour|
|14th/15th Sept||Zandvoort, Holland||5 hour|
|8th/9th/10th Nov||Anglesey, RoR||12 hour|
|9th/10th Nov||Mettet, France||6 hour|
We’ll be distinctly impressed by anyone that manages to do all the races, especially as some of the international ones clash; but there’s enough to keep us all busy in 2019. We look forward to seeing you there.
The C1 Racing Team
We are ridiculously excited to announce that we have agreed with BARC and Silverstone that our first UK 2019 24-hour race will be held on the Silverstone GP circuit on the 26th, 27th and 28th April, 2019.
That’s right: the same circuit that the Formula One race takes place on. With 110 C1s, which means two start groups. We are of course inviting our Belgian, Portuguese and Scottish friends to join us, but also expect teams from Germany, Hong Kong and the Unites States of America too.
Outline timetable is:
Qualification Friday 26th April 2030-2200hrs
Race start Saturday 27th April 1700hrs
We have elected for the old Formula One garages, because they have more space, especially in the paddock behind the garages; they are next to the showers and other amenities; and because we just prefer the pit lane entry there.
The entry fee is £3,500, payable 50% on booking; and 50% before 28th February, 2019. Entries will open, as usual on the C1 Racing Club website, at 1700hrs on Sunday 28th October. Please remember that to book, you and your drivers need to be current Club members.
The balance of the 2019 season calendar will be announced shortly, once it has been finalized with BARC and the circuits; but rest assured that we have reflected what you all asked for in the survey.
Excited? Its going to be a long winter.
