This will be our first time racing the BWDC. Does anyone know if the starts are side by side or one at a time? Also, is the Python open course or speed controlled like it was at the 425?

Thanks!

Top qualifier starts alone, rest of the field starts 2 at a time. Similar to the 425, some areas have speed limit some parts are race speed. The area south of the hay barn is usually race speed, at least thats how the last BWDC was ran.

Does anyone know if the course will be the same as the previous BWDC? Also, Where the pits and hot pits may be? I know i heard some stuff about the land being limited due to covid.

Last BWDC we raced was full speed in the python with a hot pit speed limit. Really looking forward to the race!
You or the Beavers breaking out the big lumber to race this one, or is Jim and Trent running the golf cart?

We're going to take the cart out for a round. TT still needs to get wrapped up on prep and sold.

I've also heard rumors of minor course changes, but hot pits should be the usual location in the Parker Python, adjacent to the CRIT dump.

There are a couple of key changes with the most significant being the elimination of racing down Riverside road. It’s my understanding this was done for a couple reasons. 24 mile laps. And hotpits on the North portion of the python like usual. Should be a great race!! Looking forward to this one for sure!

Riverside road was a fun section for sure. Also great for spectators and boating spectators. Oh well.

The main pit camping passes and off-road vehicle permits are sold at the gate, right?

Yes, when you come into the pit areas on either entrance.

and make sure you stick them on good. The last two races we have raced there the stickers come off and then they come and make you buy a new one. Haha. They must use the worst sticker glue ever.

Pretty smart marketing right there, if you ask me.

I was wondering the same, on the BITD FIP #18 it says no spectating, however the local media says otherwise, requesting racers and fans to follow Covid Guidelines.
