This one off event will see drivers racing at Silverstone for 90 minutes in GT3 and GT4 machinery, in a 1 driver per car event. This event is being held close to one year since the passing of Rob Tyrrell, a friend to many in the BSKIT community. A statement from Rob's university student's union reported his death to be related to an underlying health condition, which we understand to be epilepsy, hence why Epilepsy Research UK is the chosen charity for this event, and is the same charity which donations were made to a year ago.
All drivers taking part must make a minimum donation of £5 to the justgiving page linked below to take part in the event, in the donation, drivers must include their name and their race number to be entered into the event. Donations must be made by July 17th. Drivers who have not made a donation by this date will not be allowed to participate in the event.
The event will feature popularity ballast, with a soft cap of 5 cars in GT3 and 3 in GT4, 10kg of ballast will be added for every car over the soft cap. Ballast will apply per manufacturer, for each class.
