The eagled eyed amongst you will have noticed a summer round at Buckmore Park, which we are often asked for, and a venues which is very popular in terms of entries. The communication links (motorways) are handily placed for most of the membership and the calendar. We are conscious of distances travelled to venues in 2017 and the number entries at some venues and of course your feedback and in part this has informed the 2018 calendar.
We are visiting 7 of the very best circuits in the UK, for an 11 again, rather than a 12 round (at least in sprints in 2017) season. With significant investment made for 2018, which we have announced and more interesting news to come, we feel it prudent to play to our strengths and our customer base with a degree of uncertainty in the wider UK economy.
Traditional favourites such as Clay Pigeon, Glan Y Gors, Lydd and Rye House make up the 2018 season, we are confident we continue to offer the most variety and the best arrive and drive race day experience across the UK.
Full details of our racing, including formats, testing and prices will follow shortly along with information detailing our special events due to take place in January and May.
