Penn House Gravity Grand Prix, Buckinghamshire
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!
Test runs have hit speeds of about 45-50 Mph. There is a great high speed dip, some nice sweeping bends and gentle sections too.
This is a not for profit event and all proceed will go to charity. The aspiration is to create a great, fun community event to run annually.
