Meeting Format

Optional practice on Saturday in heats.
Free practice Sunday morning in heats.
4 rounds of Round-By-Round qualifying. Your best 2 round positions are added together to give your overall qualifying position.
2 rounds of finals, with trophies for the top 3 overall in each final, plus TQ and top juniors.

Championship Points

Each final counts as a separate championship score, with the A-final winner receiving 150 points, second 149 etc.

This gives 10 scores in total, with 6 to count (i.e. you must do at least 3 meetings to qualify for championship trophies).

Entry Details

£16 entry fee. Additional £5 for Saturday practice (paid in cash to the club).

Half price entry for all juniors! (16 or under on the meeting date). Please use the Under-13 or Under-17 button when entering to receive your discount. Juniors must book each event separately to receive a discount for each one.

Booking closes at 12 noon the Sunday before the event. At this time the number of finals will be fixed, and booking will reopen to fill any remaining spaces (e.g. 56 cars gives 6 finals, and there will be 4 spaces remaining).

Reserve Lists

We don't use reserve lists.

We tried it last year and it was a massive hassle. When we got closer to the event most drivers on the reserve list no longer wanted a space, and those who did needed chasing for payment.

Start checking the Facebook group and this page a couple of weeks before the event; this is when people start cancelling and spaces become available. We've had 10+ people cancel before, so there's usually a good chance of getting in.
