The Penn House Gravity Grand Prix will take place on Monday 27 May 2013. Earl and Countess Howe have very kindly allowed this event to take place at Penn House, their family home, and the course will be on the private driveway - about a mile long -leading from the main house to the gatekeepers lodge – and drops about 40 meters over that distance. It winds its way through beautiful woodlands. The most amazing bit is that the 5th Earl Howe had the corners banked to race his Bugatti along it!
