Craven Motor Club need marshals for the second and last Sprint at Hullavington.
If interested, please contact Lawrie Cooper, Competition Secretary by email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Second and Last Fitzpro Hullavington Sprint.
Craven Motor Club Limited is pleased to announce the Second Fitzpro Hullavington Sprint, at Hullavington AIrfield just north of Junction 17 of the M4. Unlike many airfield sprints, this is not based on the runways, as it uses a large proportion of the perimeter road, making it more challenging and longer at 2.0 miles.
Last year’s sprint was the first for this venue, and it was pleasing to see that the event was very well received, with many favourable comments from competitors. The basic layout of the perimeter road is excellent, and the tarmac is in good condition after a little patching. Following feedback from last years event, the paddock is being moved to the main runway, where there is room for everything. It is closer to the start, more central and should improve the flow between the finish and start. We intend to conduct scrutineering in the paddock, with noise tests en route to the start.
Sadly, as you may have seen in the press, as part of the Government’s policy of disposing of unused military land, the airfield is in the process of being sold and future use for events such as this will cease.
An element of the event is based around raising money for the military charity, Combat Stress (Charity Registration No 206002). The charity is the UK’s leading veterans’ mental health charity and is currently helping in excess of 5600 ex-servicemen and women. The charity was formed in 1919 and has as its patron HRH The Prince of Wales. More information can be found at www.combatstress.org.uk
As the funding raising is such an important part of this event you will notice that we ask you to make a separate contribution of £20.00 towards the charitable part of the event rather than simply incorporating it into the entry fee. It should be noted that as a donation it cannot be refunded. Whilst this may be paid separately, it is a mandatory part of the entry package. In addition to your direct contributions, we also donate a percentage of any surplus made from the event towards the charity.
Being a qualifying round of a number of championships, please be advised that despite there being 100 places, this event may be oversubscribed and hence a delayed entry will mean disappointment. We are not reserving any spaces for any of the Championship contenders and entries will be dealt with purely on first come, first served basis.
The online entry system, with payment by paypal, is on Craven’s Website. http://www.craven-motor-club.co.uk/
A NEW Rotary Classic Run being arranged by Calne Rotary Club to take place on Sunday 22nd May - any surplus will be used for Rotary Charities in conjunction with Dorothy House Hospice. We are happy to publicise this inaugural event and hope many of you will feel able to support it (whilst still finding time for Chipping Sodbury a month later!!). Below are the regulations and entry forms with full instructions of how to enter. The eagle eyed amongst you might notice a similarity to our documentation and we are pleased to have been able to provide Calne with some assistance in getting their event off the ground.
More details to follow soon.
