Have you ever wanted to experience the glitz and glamor of being a motorsport star but you are already past your prime or you were too afraid of going at stupidly fast speeds? If your answer is a big YES, well then, we have good news for you.
Your chance to be in motorsport is here. It does not matter if you have passed your prime or not, and you’d be able to do it going fast but not crazy fast that will make you pee your pants. Even better is, both you and your juniors can part take in this unique motorsport.
The Little Car Company has partnered with HERO-ERA to launch a UK championship racing series that will see 20 adult and child teams competing in three events at iconic UK automotive locations: Bicester Heritage, Silverstone, and Prescott Hill, and in racing in the adorable Bugatti Baby II.
For the uninitiated, Bugatti Baby II is a 75% scale version of one of the French marque’s most iconic racing vehicles, the Bugatti Type 35, developed in partnership with Bugatti. It is fully electric and offers multiple driving modes for both grown-ass people and children.
Not to worry if you don’t own a Bugatti Baby II and/or have zero experience in racing on the real race track because entry to the championship includes the provision of a Bugatti Baby II, as well as coaching from 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and Bugatti Pilote Officiel, Andy Wallace.
The UK Bugatti Baby II Championship will happen between April 23, 2023, and July 08, 2023. During this time, three sessions will be conducted. There is a £4,950 (about €5,621 or US$6,111) entry fee per team which includes entry to all three racing events, catering at each event, and entry to the Bicester Scramble for the first race. You will need to provide your own helmet, gloves, and appropriate clothing and footwear.
An adult must be age 21 and old and would have to be 6’ 2 or under in order to fit into the tiny Bugatti comfortably. The kid must be aged 10-14. Guest/spectator hospitality tickets can be acquired separately for 125 quid (approximately €142 or US$154) per ticket.
