RHPK Pace Cars

RHPK Pace Cars

Since we are all petrol heads, in RHPK we try to introduce as many cars around Ryehouse as possible. Our first pace car started in May 2016 and have featured a car every round since.

Mark Beaumont (Series Coordinator) gives us the idea behind the feature…

The idea of the pace car was on top of the list when planning the 2016 season. I wanted to start the year off with a bang and had my Dad’s 2016 Ford Focus RS lined up for March – he would have picked it up the day before the race, meaning one of the very first ones on the road… but unfortunately, it was delayed last minute. We made big plans for Mays round and since then its gone from strength to strength.

Every month we introduce a different car which provides a big focal point, introduces new formulas and new people.

If you have a car worthy and want to get it on track for RHPK, please get in touch at info@rhpk.co.uk
