British 24 - Middlesbrough
Teesside International Circuit
9th - 11th August 2024
£1,950 per rental team (4-10 drivers) - £1,250 per owner/driver team
British 24hr Challenge
At 2.1km, this is the longest kart circuit in the UK, and still the fastest - flat out all the way is the only way to go in a 24-hour sprint race!
With an average track width of 10 metres, everywhere is an overtaking opportunity. From the start line, head through the changing camber of the front 'D chicane' and down to the sweeping left-hander.
On to the west side of the circuit, travelling downhill toward the hairpin bump, the kart lifts all four wheels off the deck, still flat and turning in, waiting to touch back down and clear the apex before heading on to the hill section climbing right.
Head left and climb all the way before cornering the hairpin at the top of the hill, then onto the back straight for another 500 meters before navigating the hairpin complex, only now lifting.
Left, right, and back on to the rear straight, lining up for the massive banked bend known as South Bank. Hang on for seconds before hitting the next corner, right, then line up for a sweeping left that brings you onto the dog-leg and flat out to the front straight, then over the line to start another lap.
Lap times around the International Circuit are in the low 1:20s. Driver stints last an hour and a half - this is what endurance racing is all about - and it's the hardest race of the year! No laps the same when your overtaking 20 times a lap.
