Since we opened all our Speed Events for entry last Friday entries have been flooding in and Curborough in particular is almost fully subscribed. It is wonderful to see that our Competitors are as keen as we are to return to Motorsport activities; it’s been a very long year for all of us. We would urge all competitors to submit their entries for the Speed events as soon as possible.
Important information is detailed below.
