Event Information


BRCA membership is a requirement. The Licence costs £20 per annum and runs from December to December. It can
be purchased online from: https://www.brca.org/

When you arrive

Please visit race control and book in when you arrive at the track. The booking in process should be swift but please
be prepared to queue. Please ask questions while you’re in the queue. There will be people around to answer them.
For booking in we just need to know you’re here.

Qualifying Heats

There will be one practice round in heat order.
There will then be 4 Rounds of 5 minute Qualifying Heats for each class. Busy classes will be split into 2 or 3 separate
heats based upon the ability grade stated at online registration.
Each Heat is a staggered start format so buggies will start 1.5 seconds apart and it is all about completing as many
laps as possible in those 5 minutes. The transponder system will record the exact time and laps over the 5 minutes.
Please look at the board outside the control hut to see which Heat you’re in and make a note of your buggy number.
The computer system will call out the buggy numbers for the staggered start so it’s important that you know your
number and you start as soon as you hear your number called out. At the beginning of each Heat the buggies line up
in front of the transponder line. You will keep the same buggy number throughout the Heats. The order in which
Buggies start is determined by the previous heat results. Quickest buggy starts first.
Make a note of who is in the heat before you and be ready while that Heat is running. Get used to the faces up on
the Rostrum. That’s the best way to know when you’re due up.
When your heat is finished the computer system will call out your buggy number and say “Finished”. Keep going
until you hear this. If you get confused, ask your fellow racers on the rostrum.
You must stay around after your Heat to marshal the next Heat.


The driver’s best 2 heat times out of the 4 will determine grid position in the final. There may be A, B, C etc finals per
class depending on entry levels. The finals will run in order, A then B then C etc. This is to allow the A final winner
and runner up time to prepare for the Race of Champions.

Race of Champions

The top 2 drivers from each A final enter into the prestigious Race of Champions. This will see all classes fighting it
out on track at the same time with separate starting grids around the track based on the class age. The winner of
the Race of Champions is crowned the event champion.


All drivers must Marshall the heat immediately after their own heat.
When you finish your heat, place your Buggy on the table next to the rostrum and go straight out onto the track to
your Marshall’s post and put on the supplied high visibility vest. Marshal posts will be numbered and you should go
to the marshal point with the same number as your car.
Marshals should stay at their marshalling points at all times during the race period. If a car is need of assistance only
enter the track when it is safe to do so, and when the car has been recovered get back to your marshal point as soon
as possible but making sure that it is safe to cross the track. Please refrain from fixing cars at the side of the track;
you are there to marshal only. Stay vigilant, stay alert and stay safe.
Drivers must not hit the throttle until the Marshall has stepped away.

Support Races

The one-off Monster Truck race on Sunday is a random grid start and the winner will be the driver first to complete 9
laps. If you have any completely battered and beyond hope Lexan Shells, please bring them along for the race!
Thanks in advance. Due to the potential high number of entries, GHz radio is recommended.
On Saturday there will be a Wheelie race just for fun with no timing and no trophies. Entry is £2 cash on the day. All
entry money goes into the charity pot.

Endurance Race

Please refer to the Revival Endurance Race details later in this document for eligible buggies and rules for Saturday
evening’s team endurance race.

Concours d’elegance

Concourse is £2 cash per entry, to be paid on the day and will be judged at the photo call just before the drivers
Saturday: Any eligible 2WD Buggy & Wheelie.
Sunday: Any eligible 4WD Buggy & Monster Truck.

Motors and Speed Controllers

There are no restrictions on motors and speed controllers


There is a 2s LiPo limit for the event. You will need to provide your own source of power for recharging of batteries.
Generators may be used but please try to ensure to position them so they are out of harm’s way and so they are not
an annoyance to other people attending the meeting.
Please charge LiPo’s in a fire sack.


Please consider using GHz radio for an easier day.
If you are running MHz radio, please state which crystals you have when you register online so they can be put into
the race computer. Just state the colour or number of the crystals that you have e.g. Red, 915 etc. When you race
you will be allocated a specific crystal for that heat so it is important that A1 have your crystal details in advance.


If you don’t have a PT (Personal Transponder) there will be Hand out Transponders provided on the day. These need
to be securely fitted into your vehicle but need to be quickly removed because they have to be handed back to race
control after each heat. Hand out Transponders have their own battery and can be secured through the body shell
as they have a body shell style mount. If you don't want to put a hole through the buggy body, you'll need to find a
way to secure them very temporarily without sticking them. So find a way to make use of the body mount hole or
cable tie them etc. This is what they look like alongside another idea for securing them to the chassis.

Dimensions: AMBrc Rechargeable Transponder
Dimensions : 35 x 31 x 12 mm (approx. 1.4”x1.2”x 0.5”) Weight : 22 g
Making sure you can accommodate the Hand-out Transponders in your vehicle is very important so please consider
this prior to the event to save you time/panic on the day. If you’d rather purchase your own PT, they are in excess of
£30 each and are smaller and powered from the receiver.

Charity Raffle

There will be a Saturday raffle and a Sunday raffle with some incredible prizes donated by sponsors and members.
Raffle tickets will be £5.

Charity Tombola

There will be the opportunity to win RC prizes on the Charity Tombola.

Icon of the Day Award

This award will go to the most stand-out or unique buggy racing on each day.

The Brett Davis Newcomer Award

This special trophy will be presented on each day to who we feel made the best Revival debut.

Revival Veteran Award

This award, presented on Sunday, will go to an entrant who has made a notable contribution to the Revivals over the

Endurance Race

A 2 hour endurance race on the Revival Saturday evening, 29th July, from approximately 18:30. The start will be Lemans
style with cars lined up along the side of the main straight. Each team will have a runner standing on the
opposite side of the track. After a ten second countdown, on the warble a designated runner will run across to the
car and turn it onto its wheels and then the driver may get underway. The winner of the race will be the team who
have completed the most laps during the race’s duration.

Guys John, me or peakey will publish the online link at 09:00 on Sunday 5th March. This year's entry system is brand new. You'll complete the entry and put backup classes in (if you wish to). Your entry will be confirmed if the details look ok and you will be invoiced to pay with PayPal. Only when you've paid will you be entered. Please make sure you have a valid BRCA number when you enter (or overseas equivalent) otherwise your entry will not be accepted and you won't be invoiced. A reminder that we've reduced the entry limit this year to give everyone easier days. You can enter a maximum of 2 buggy classes per day.

Due to the high amount of entries expected it may be a couple of days before you receive your request to pay emails so please be patient
Any questions please drop me a message & i will do my best to answer asap

Booking in opens at 9am tomorrow morning everyone

A quick word from John & Rob
I'll post 3x links tomorrow morning. 1x for 2WD Saturday and 1x for 4WD Sunday (including the Monster Truck Race) and 1x for the Endurance Race. There is no registration and the forms are quick and painless and mobile friendly. Once entered, details will be checked and you will be invoiced in a few days. There will be an online drivers list but only when you've paid will you be officially entered. Please make sure you enter with a valid BRCA otherwise you won't be invoiced.
We are capping every class this year and there are much less places up for grabs compared to last year. If you decide to put a backup class in you'll have a better chance of getting entered. Thanks all. John & Rob.

Amazing response, 2wd full, 4wd nearly full

Revival 2017 Driver Lists.

You'll note that backup classes were needed for some in 2WD and I'm sorry for the guys who ended up on the reserve lists. 4WD is almost full now too. If you have a query based on the lists, PM me and I'll answer as soon as I can. Drivers on the lists will be invoiced in the coming days. Please bear with us while we sort that out. Thanks all. John and Rob.
