Coventry BriSCA F1 World Final Build-Up #5

Latest World Final news from Coventry HQ

Only a few days left to snap up a bargain with regard to World Final ticket sales. The chance to purchase a cheap rate advance ticket will end at midnight this Saturday (21st August) Tickets have been flying out of the office and already as we speak over 2,800 have been bought in advance, breaking all previous Coventry records. We are thrilled to have such a response from both drivers and fans and we are also looking forward to the highest Dutch contingency ever at a World Final event taking the number of F1’s over the 100 cars barrier.

With such interest from the orange crowd we are delighted to announce that the Friday meeting will host full blown F1 racing with four events for the Dutch and fellow overseas entrants to acquire the track time and ultimate car set up ready to challenge the UK racers – is this the year the major trophy will go overseas?

After a very successful Venray trip by the Coventrystox team we are delighted to confirm the F1 visitors listed below, with the vast majority intending on racing both Friday and Saturday night which includes the 2010 World Cup Champion H247 Gary Castell.

We have also had an amazing response from Dutch F2 racers and we are looking forward to many NL racers joining us on the Friday evening to challenge the UK shale racers at the 2010 F2 Brandon finale including the newly crowned World Cup Champion Toon Schut.

The Friday night spectacular is really taking shape now with such interest and the F2 brigade are fighting it out for the Whites and Yellows Championship too so this really is a quality event at domestic prices (£12 Adults, £5 Children 11-15, Under 11’s FREE) Why not start the party early and make it a double Coventry whammy.

On Friday camping will be available at 12:00pm and the pit gate will open at 3:00pm Turnstiles will open at 5:30pm and the racing will kick off bang on 7:30pm with the W&Y Championship race for the F2’s.

After a heavy party on the Friday night the stadium will re-open between 8:00am and 11:00am for breakfast and showers. The pit gate will open to competitors at 12:00pm and then all those people who have purchased tickets in advance will get the opportunity to enter the stadium at 2:30pm This is the perfect opportunity to pick your spot and set up for the night ahead, so if you haven’t got your ticket yet and want to be one of the first through the gate you have till Saturday evening to do so. If you wish to pay on the gate the turnstiles will open at 3:00pm.

As mentioned the camping will be on first come, first served basis along with the car park so don’t be late. The first on track activity will be the Heritage parade, with cars from the 1950’s onwards – a delight to watch and hear all about these pieces of racing history and this will take place from 4.45p.m. with Keith Barber informing the crowd of all these fantastic machines. Don’t forget these cars will be on display prior to their parade in a Heritage exhibition celebrating 50 years of World Finals at Coventry and although they will be racing throughout the evening the exhibition will displaying these cars throughout the night giving the public a piece of nostalgia and for no extra cost. Spend some moments reminiscing about these cars from the bygone era before watching another racing champion lift the World Championship trophy for 2010.

Don’t forget as well there will be up to forty Heritage cars in the pits for their Exhibition as well as racing during the evening – so all in all it’s going to be a bursting pits full of plenty to see.
