You will note 2 extra rounds from previous years! To encourage stiff competition drivers competing at all 14 rounds will drop their 2 slowest SS & USS events.
The AGM has been pencilled in and further details will be issued out ASAP!

Fancy a place on your clubs committee?
It’s that time of year where the committee gets re elected, if you fancy a place on the committee please let me know so you can be considered!
Clarity on Seatbelts.
There were a few people running without seatbelts to their cars at the back end of last year, for clarity All drivers are to wear at minimum a 3 point belt unless they are driving in a standard class a vehicle that came from factory without a belt – this is the only exception to this rule.
Many thanks and hope to see you all at round 1!
