Order of the Day

YOU need to be here by 10:45am! This is to ensure you are ready for drivers briefing, signing on, sort your transponders and get scruitineered… so loads to do before your little’uns get on the track. There will be a practice session before the three heats, then the final. At the end of the day someone will be crowned Festival Champion!!!


IKR Bambino Festival itinerary can be seen here

Whose coming?

Firstly… MOTORS TV are booked. They’ve polished their lenses, prepped their video cameras and are ready to televise the whole event! 30 mins of Bambino racing will be shown on a slot (to be confirmed) on Motors TV!!!



Steve ‘Stiggy’ Evans will be here. In between heats 2 and 3 Steve will be hooning around the track in his 350hp Toyota Starlet (nicknamed ‘The Mighty’) doing what he does best…DRIFTING. Pretty sure the kids will love this!!! Just let them know that although drifting is ULTRA FUN, it’s a slower way round the track so don’t start copying Steves lines!!!



and Finally… we have another motosport fanatic, but as yet he hasn’t ‘signed on the dotted line’ as soon as this is confirmed we’ll let you know. But we will guarantee it’ll be as much fun to watch as ‘The Mighty’

Book in here

So that’s it! There’s going to be plenty or racing, loads of hooning, but most importantly this will be an AWESOME event!!!


The cost to bring just a TV crew are a fortune, hence why when they are here…prices go up. However, Rye House will be subsidising the costs for the IKR Bambino Festival 2016!!!


If you did participate in the London Cup you’d know that there was plenty of dithering, wobbling and radios flying through the air! Many parents were miffed and ALL the children were upset as to not getting their hard earned trophies.


Whilst we as a circuit couldn’t do anything about these unfortunate events, we realised (too late!) that we got it wrong with regards to the TV crew. so ALL 20 London Cup entrants will have a massively subsidised rate. We are sorry and hope this will help restore your faith in us as a circuit!!!


So here we go…. costs. To lay this on, Rye House would charge £140 per entrant to cover all the costings involoved… BUT, we will be charging:


London Cup Entrants (all 20 of you) £35.00 – BOOK HERE

Everyone else: £100.00 – BOOK HERE
