Ace Cafe London Drivers Challenge! Sunday 14th July
Entries are invited for the inaugural Ace Cafe London Drivers Challenge, a Clubman Production Car Autotest ‘Taster Event’ to be held on Sunday 14th July and which is organised by Middlesex County Automobile Club on behalf of the Ace to celebrate the cafe’s 75th anniversary of having originally opened in 1938.
Conceived primarily to provide an introduction to motor sport, the entry is limited to just 75 vehicles across six different classes each with a crew of two, driver and navigator.
The meeting, governed by the General Regulations of the Motor Sport Association (incorporating the provisions of the International Sporting Code of the FIA) includes driving around cones “against the clock” and several other timed tests, and with at least two runs at each test (on private ground) the best times count! If there are more than two runs at a particular test, the slowest time is disregarded.
Awards up for grabs for “Fastest Time of the Day” and, subject to there being sufficient entries in each vehicle class, there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place award in each of the classes.
