Just got the updated AER details  ;D
We've all now got race numbers and the details of the sprint track are :

Sprint track

The cycle-sprint track will be open from 1000h-1300h and 1400h-1700h and will consist of a long drag down the first straight, a 180 degree turn, then a slalom back to the start/finish box.

Not sure about the slalom  :o ;D ;D

Didn't see your details on it Andy, but it does say that there will be another update next week.

Last year they did ask that we all took our driving licence with us...even though we were using bicycle derived vehicles  ::)

If you have your licence handy it might be worth taking it along !

Here's a copy of the email. Looks like all us sprint racers need is a cycle helmet . No driving licence required.

Dear Alternative Energy Racing Subscriber,
 
AE Racing is nearly here! The event takes place on Saturday 12th May, and things are really getting revved up/fully charged! (delete as applicable to create the pun of your choice)
 
Tickets

I have assigned two weekend tickets to every entrant on the entries list (see here: http://www.aeracing.org/entry2012.php)

If you think you will need more, please reply to this email with a request for more and I will try and arrange it for you.


Arrival

Tickets will be held on the gate in the office directly to the right of the payment booths. Tickets will be held under the drivers name, and the vehicle must be present in order to collect tickets. This is to prevent anyone from taking tickets not meant for them.

Gates open at 0800h on Saturday, but if there is anyone who would like to stay on Friday night to trickle-charge an electric vehicle for example, please reply to this email to request further details.

Once tickets have been collected, please head to the AE Racing pits (I will include a site map with tickets) where someone from Santa Pod Raceway will greet you.


Timetable

Because AE Racing shares its date at Santa Pod Raceway with the Street Nationals Event, the timetable for the day can be viewed here: http://www.streetnationals.co.uk/timetable.php

All AE Racing runs will be made in the “RWYB (Run What Ya Brung) Sessions” (from 0930h), and you can make as many runs on the track as you want in each session by simply joining the queue in the fire-up road.

 
You must visit the sign-on office at the base of the startline tower before you can go out on the dragstrip.

Winners presentations will take place at 1800h on the startline once the track has closed.

Race Numbers

The entry list page has received an update here: http://www.aeracing.org/entry2012.php

Every entry now has a race number e.g. AE011. Please display this clearly on your vehicle where possible. We have a white marker which we can use to write the number on rear windscreens of cars, but you are welcome to make a sticker with your race number on if you want. This must be visible from the rear of the vehicle at some distance, so please make it as large and clear as possible. Bikers can display their numbers on the backs of their jackets or by covering their numberplate with the race number.

Cycle-type vehicles for the sprint track can get away with a much smaller number, because race-control will be standing right next to you at the startline!

Equipment

All entrants must bring their DVLA driving licence, except those running cycle-type vehicles on the sprint track only. Everyone on the dragstrip will need to bring their driving licence to sign-on.

Bikers must have suitable protective clothing – that means gloves, helmet (with visor/goggles) and jacket as a bare minimum, full leathers and boots are highly recommended.


Car drivers with open-top vehicles will also need a helmet.

Cycle-type vehicles will require the rider to wear a bicycle helmet minimum.

Sprint track

The cycle-sprint track will be open from 1000h-1300h and 1400h-1700h and will consist of a long drag down the first straight, a 180 degree turn, then a slalom back to the start/finish box.

Staying Over on Saturday Night

Anyone running in AE Racing is welcome to camp on site on Saturday night.
