After many months of time, effort and lengthy discussions with the Motor Sports Vision track management team it gives me great pleasure in announcing our return to one of the countries original and finest slalom locations – the much revered Brands Hatch GP motor racing circuit in Kent, situated just 20 miles outside London.

The Rush 2011 takes place over the weekend of 25th/26th June as part the Time Attack weekend (see http://www.timeattack.co.uk/ for details) which takes place on the Indy Circuit. Highlights of this event include the smoking tyres of the European Drift Championship and the Time Attack Series - a 'beat the clock' challenge for highly tuned road cars. There will also be demo laps from 1000bhp race trucks, stunt motorcycles and fiery Santa Pod drag cars - to name but a few.
While all that is going on we will be racing on Hawthorn Hill by the bridge on the GP circuit. As has almost become the norm at the last few Hog Hill races I am also opening this event up to our cousins at London Longboards. This helps spread the cost of the event as well as giving those that have not experienced the thrill of racing at Brands Hatch before an ideal opportunity to do just that.

This event is also open to longboarders, downhillers and sliders. Dangerous Decks will be hosting slide clinics and holding a slide comp on the Duids/Hailwood Hill section of the Indy Circuit after 6pm on Saturday once the racing has finished for the day - complimenting the European Drifting Championships taking place over the weekend

Camping is available to us on Saturday night at a cost of £15 per head; the organisers are trying to find us our own spot near our race site rather than in the main “petrol-heads” campsite over the other side of the track. As with all weekend events at Brands there will be a host of entertainment laid on for one and all on Saturday night including stalls, music, live bands and of course licensed bars!

As this is the first event of this nature I am conscious that we don't try to cram too much in over the weekend, I want to keep things simple. Therefore we will be running an Open Race format with a dual hybrid on Saturday and a GS on the Sunday.
On Saturday evening after racing has finished on the Indy Circuit (at around 6pm) we have been invited to put on some demo races for the Time Attack spectators in the grandstands using Paddock Hill Bend. The format for these will be decided on nearer the time.

If this all goes well and the Time Attack guys like what they see they have said that we will be invited back to future events.

Sign up for the event will be via the NCDSA Contest Calendar and will be set up and announced shortly, please be patient!
Important: payment must be made when you sign up, your entry will not be confirmed until we receive payment.
Sign Up will close on 31st May 2011 as I have to provide a list of confirmed riders to the main organisers three weeks before the event and once sign up closes it will not be possible to make any changes to the entry list.

Entry fees:
All Weekend - £35 (incl.camping)
One day - £15.00
These rates apply to racers only – see below.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the event non-participating friends and family wishing to spectate will have to pay the normal Time Attack admission fees – see their website for details on reduced price advance tickets.

For those not wishing to camp there are a number of hotels nearby however these tend to get booked up soon after race events at Brands Hatch are announced.

Directions and more information on Brands Hatch can be found here: http://www.motorsportvision.co.uk/brand ... -hatch.asp along with details of nearby hotels.

Moiz, I don't have you on the list of registered riders and the sign-up ended some time ago and we are at capacity?
The list for weekend passes was submitted to the organisers on 6th June and cannot be changed.
The only way you can cme to this event now is to pay regular admission to Brands Hatch see: http://www.modifiedlive.co.uk/page.php?a=5&s=77&p=77

A great weekends racing under the hot English sun, a big thanks to all - especially Glen at Modified Live and to Motor Sports Vision and Brands Hatch for hosting us. Thanks to our sponsors Octane Sport, Glastonbury Ales, Dan Gesmer and Seismic for the spreadsheet and to Tim and the Brands Hatch Marshal crew.
Great to see so many great names of the British racing scene back on the hill at Brands, highlight of the weekend for me was seeing Edwin get into the A group round of 8 - amazing skating, look out folks he's back!

Full race report on http://www.ukslalomskateboarding.org.uk/ coming soon!
