BHF Track days

I just realized that BHF organizes its own track days. For the longest time I only looked at PTT, STT or NESBA.

If anyone here attended a BHF organized track day, could you please comment on the structure? As in: how many sessions do you get, is it the usual 20min on the hour, are there control riders, what are the passing rules, ecs? Thanks in advance.

It is run pretty much like a nesba day. I bet you will even see a lot of nesba cr faces too.

Like the other response, it is pretty much run like NESBA. The only problem they have is occassionally they successfully overbook. Meaning four groups; usually 2 groups of "I" and 15 minute sessions. You can sign up here>

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

the CRs are combination of PTT, STT and NESBA.

there are only 6 sessions usually, the last session running somewhat longer, since the track day needs to end by 4:30 since it's during the week.

lunch is included!

the two "I" groups is not always the case, but i assume as it gets nicer more and more people will sign up. it's always a sold out day, register on time

There are control riders, but you can pass them without wave bye's, which is different than the Nesba structure. They are there more as observers to make sure everyone is playing safely...
