Team requirements

We suggest the following are part of your race day luggage.


  • A pit board to let your driver know when it's time to come in for a driver change

  • Soft shoes, preferably trainers

  • A change of clothes should it rain

  • Fold away chairs to sit on


Driver information

The event is a 4 hour race and anything can happen. The race will not be won on the first corner of the first lap, or by the driver who posts the fastest lap! Endurance racing is a TEAM event, planning refuelling and putting your drivers out on track and keeping them there. Plan pit signals and be ready to make swift and efficient pit stops for driver changes.
