Brrrr round Brands - Jan 09

Brrrr round Brands

Sunday 11th January 2009

It's going to be chilly, but... BLAST ROUND BRANDS is back! Following a rather good session in August, we're going to abandon those mince pies in favour of some high speed racing action to kick off the Spring Term in style. Take the passenger seat in Richard's Caterham Seven for some high speed laps of the world-famous Brands Hatch racing circuit! The Seven was designed by Lotus in 1957 as a car which could be driven to the circuit, raced, and driven home again. Subsequently banned by many racing authorities as "too fast to race", manufacture of the Seven continues today. The Caterham that you will experience was built in 1990. Powered by 150bhp, yet weighing only 500kg, you will be propelled from 0-60mph in under 6 seconds while sitting only inches from the tarmac. You’ll take Brands' infamous Paddock Hill bend at 70mph - with just a little sideways action! - in a car that embodies classic motoring at its fastest. You'll share a half-day (your choice of morning or afternoon) with two other Explorers - which should give you about 20 high-speed laps during a 20-minute session. If there's time, we'll get a second session in too. The rest of your time can be spent ogling over the wide variety of sports- and racing-cars that frequent such events! There's a strict limit on places - three Explorers in the morning, three in the afternoon. THE FIRST SIX who hit the "Add Me" link below (and follow it up with payment by end of November) get the places! It's as simple as that. Current Explorers: you have priority on these places, but only until 30th November. After that, we open up any remaining places to the Old Explorers and Leaders. So get in quickly! Cost of this pretty special opportunity? Fifteen quid each. Age limit: you must be at least 15 years old.
