Rf2 - CFS Petit Le Mans [The Big One!]
CFS is once again hosting the Petit Le Mans at the legendary circuit of Road Atlanta. Choose from LMP2, GTE or GTC (Flat 6) machinery. With so many vehicle choices, there will be something to suit your style. Choose the LMP2, a light carbon chassis powered by a 603 BHP V8 engine! For something less high speed, take the GTE class, powerful, but sensible and with enough aero to find that limit you so desire. If you like a true challenge though, take on the GTC flat 6, no ABS, no Traction Control and a big engine in the back to push you forward.
The circuit is special in a unique way, with lap times coming in just over 1 minute! The traffic is so intense it makes the 12h Sebring look like a toddler in comparison. If the traffic wasn't bad enough, around 60% of the circuit is covered in high-speed corners, all designed to be taken by 1 car at a time with zero room to manouver or make an error. If you make a mistake, it's game over, no second chance as the barriers wait for you, ready to deny you victory. This is a real endurance circuit, pure speed, concentration, changing conditions & downright stupid levels of traffic management. This is not for the faint hearted or inexperienced.
If that isn't good enough, CFS will be helping raise funds for food banks across the UK during the event, with all money gained from the Entry fee's being sent to "The Trussell Trust". They have a nationwide network of food banks and together they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. They support more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Given the recent global events, we thought this is the best thing we can do to help those in need in our own little way.
