Penn House Gravity Grand Prix, Buckinghamshire

Monday 26th May 2014

Penn House Gravity Grand PrixThe Penn House Grand Prix in Buckinghamshire will return in 2014 after a very successful first run last year.  The course is quite a challenge technically with what we think is the only steep uphill section in the UK!

This year there will be three classes, an open class and a two formula classes for karts with and without bodywork. The formula classes will have strictly enforced weight limits for complete fairness. It again runs on the long, winding private driveway of a grand country house.

There will also be a trial run of gravity bikes this year so gravity bikes are encouraged to apply.
