Watch one of your local rounds of the bpcc, the speed they reach is petrifying :o

Ha yep. Insanely fast, in a straight line anyway, something like 30mph average I think?

We're nowhere near that at the moment, averaging about 18.5mph over a lap. Hoping better weather conditions might improve that though, it was very windy yesterday! Handling is great though, really neutral and easy to drive, yet still pulled 1.1g on full slicks even in those wet conditions. I think we'll be more suited to the twisty tracks...!

Think the top lap speeds at curby were around 25ish mph, could be wrong. Our fastest lap speed was 15mph :D

Someone on the Facebook group said the best way to train for pedal car racing was to ride a recumbent bike... so I built one, using parts from an old slick-shod MTB I used for commuting!

Too much of a pussy to cut the steerer tube down yet!

Adam, entered under the name of the pedaling tarts? Or is that another team of coincidental naming? :D

You going solo or roped in some extras?

Ha, thanks Dave, though you might not say that if you tried to ride it!

Yeah we are Pedalling Tarts, have a few others lined up so got a full team for round 2, but perhaps have to do the odd one as a duo or solo.
