There must be many more on the brink of registering.
I hope.
Well, I'm off to meet the boys up at Slime Dog for one more outing. Then, it's down for
pre Tieton service and prep.

Is the schedule of events posted somewhere? Maybe I missed it. Wondering about the general flow - will there be races on Friday? On Sunday? Or is everything concentrated on Saturday? Still trying to figure out a way to make this work.

Ben, I know this doesn't sound very confidence inspiring but, true to form, stuff is still being hammered out
during these final weeks. Each year has been somewhat unique, but generally follows this pattern.
Friday is arrival, check in, Tech inspection, and a few minor events. Drag races, and some skills challenges TAB.

Saturday is Tieton Grand Prix day. This will consist once again of various theme and heat races leading up to a big finale in the afternoon. Then a concours/show in the town square park.

Sunday will bring the Campbell Cup time trials event, which is held on private land. This is the infamous circuit run over the service roads of an orchard. No one should consider this event to be, because of no longer being wheel to wheel, a softer version than previous years. If your kart is deficient in any way, going fast on this track will lay it bare! I would still expect to see many failures.

If you're still running by Sunday afternoon, a hillclimb event is presently being worked on that may just deliver the coup de grace for a diminished machine.

Being that the number of entries is still not definitely known, much is not
solid.

Sadly, the G.B. was a casualty of burdensome regulation and red tape. The race couldn't continue to be held on those roads, so a new venue will have to be found.

In the meantime, we are painfully without the race. I'm sure a lot of you share my disappointment with this.

Is there a schedule posted anywhere?

How late can we arrive on Friday, and still be involved in all the events?

Is there any camping nearby?

My CycleKart is ready, Iā€™m not!

Don, I don't even have a schedule, and I'm supposed to be running alot of Sunday's main event!
Nothing serious is happening much before Noon on Friday, from what I can tell.
Thought I'd have heard more by now.
I believe the camping arrangements are the same.

There is no date yet for 2019.
Only the year by year faith that there will be another.

Neither will there be any driving test through the gates, according
to Johnny Dumfries.
