General info International Race MBV Kampenhout 2019

INTERNATIONAL  RACE  KAMPENHOUT  5/6/7 July  2019

LOCATION

The MBV track is situated in a public park behind school buildings.

Address: Park van Relst, Aarschotsebaan 128, 1910 Kampenhout (Relst).

TRACK

The track has an astroturf surface. Jumps? Oh yes,  whoops, a ski-iiii jump, a fabulous “wall of death”,  a tricky off camber turn, …

Special feature: unique underground drainage worth seeing. Drainage holes and pipes under the track lead to one collector on the lowest point.

The rostrum along the straight is more than 2 m high. Lap counting is installed underneath.

On the parking area right next to the track tents will be put up for pitting. Some drivers prefer pitting in the camping area which is also close to the track.

An average lap is between 26 and 29 seconds. Highest grip when the track has dried after it rained, slippery when wet. Prolonged dry weather results in slightly slower lap times.

Schumacher Mini Spike 2, all types, all compounds for the driven axles.

Camping in the park (5 euros per person) during the event is exceptionally allowed by the Council from Wednesday on and at own risk. The park is not a fitted camp site, there are no showers (only showers provided by nature), limited 220V from Friday on. You can bring a generator but use it wisely at night. Keep outer road free. Do not leave valuables within grabbing reach. And don’t count on quiet evenings, especially on Saturday night there will be loud music in the big party tent.

Type of electrical sockets used in Belgium: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/CEE_7-7.jpg

or search Google for: CEE 7/7

Power 220V supplied in the pits. In the camping area there will be one centralized multi socket, so bring your own good quality extension lead.

See you soon,
