The Cowdenbeath Racewall is delighted to announce, that for the first time in 5 months, we will be opening our doors in August for a series of ‘closed’ practice events – unfortunately these events are NOT open to spectators.
Dates & Timings
Each event will run 1pm-4.30pm. Pit entry will be from 1230pm and will ONLY BE OPEN TO THOSE DRIVERS WHO HAVE BOOKED IN ADVANCE TO ATTEND.

Details of practice for MicroF2 drivers will be announced on the Racewall/Crimond MicroF2 teams Facebook page.
The cost of participating in each practice event is £40 per driver including one mechanic. Should you wish a second mechanic to attend an additional fee of £10 will apply i.e. £50 in total. These prices are set by the ORCi.
In order to maximise the track time for drivers, each event will be limited to a maximum of 60 cars with a limited number of formulas running at each event.
Payment is on the day at the GMP Reception HOWEVR only debit/credit card card payments will be accepted. No CASH payments will be taken. Please queue in a socially distanced manner wearing the relevant PPE (see below).
How to secure a practice space

There will be strictly no car sharing at these events – one driver to one car.
On the Day
This is a strictly Social Distanced event and all in attendance must stay 2m apart, this includes parking your race vehicle with at least a 2m distance between the next driver. Whilst government Guidelines are relaxing, it is still vital to remember that COVID – 19 is still a danger, so please ensure you and your mechanics maintain your 2m distance at all times.
All drivers and mechanics will be required to supply their own racing PPE (helmets, gloves etc). Face coverings and disposable hygienic gloves must be worn at all times by both drivers AND mechanics once within the pit area and stadium except in the case of the driver when you have your racing PPE on to practice.
A reminder there will be strictly no spectators allowed entry for these events.
All drivers (excluding Bangers0 must have a race receiver fitted to allow appropriate direction to be given to you by race officials during the course of practice.
Toilets and limited catering will be provided but social distancing must be maintained whilst queuing to use the facilities.

We look forward to welcoming drivers back to the Racewall at these events as we take the first steps towards a return to racing at somepoint in the near future.
