2018 will again see us run a three day event, with official practice, qualifying and racing to occur on Friday the 9th, which will allow us to run 2 races for each category on both Saturday and Sunday. This means that everyone will get more track time, and more racing and of course more value for money

We take this opportunity to thank all of our hard working officials and competitors who made that meeting such a fantastic event and without whom we would not have been asked to nominate. You, the officials and competitors are the most important component to the success of our meetings.
