INTERNATIONAL RACE KAMPENHOUT 3 – 4 – 5 July 2015
Hello GP drivers,
Thank you for your entry. Here is some general info about our 2015 race.
The MBV track is situated in a public park behind school buildings.
Address: Park van Relst, Aarschotsebaan 128, 1910 Kampenhout (Relst).
The track has an astroturf surface. Jumps? Oh yes, a 90° table top, whoops, a ski-iiii jump, a fabulous “wall of death”, two cobble stone sections, 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 27 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.
Yes, we know all that, but what changes did Willy made this year?
The main jump has been moved to the “hoechelenkant”. The wooden washboard is in wood heaven now. The wall is covered with thicker astro. And really new is the flexy fence all around the track.

Camping Veronique is only 3,5 km from the track:

Camping in the park (3 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.
