Major’s Memorial Update
Not long left until the booking closes and we currently have 18 teams entered and some still on their way which include a Q class team, 2 standard teams and 1 young experienced driver, so far no sign of a ladies team which is a shame.
Classic Catering have been booked for the weekend, providing their marquee which food and drink will be served. It’s a good place to come down and talk to people from all over the ALRC. This will be available Friday – Monday.
We have toilets on site and a skip for rubbish.
Camping is in the usual spot, 23 acre; follow the signs when arriving on site. Please stop and book in when you arrive, camping is £10 per night per unit.
The campsite will open at 12 noon on Friday 15th. Signing on for drivers, navigators and marshals and scrutineering will open Friday at 12 o’clock noon until 10pm.
Scrutineering and signing on (drivers, navigators and marshals) will be available on Saturday 16th from 7:15am – 8:15am as the trial starts at 8:30am.
Trial will restart on the Sunday at 8am.
Prize giving will be given on the Sunday afternoon approx. 1 hour after the results have been posted to give time for any appeals (tbc).
