Yes just been looking at last years photos. Looks like a good event. I think Steve Cork is going to enter but just wondered how many others there are likely to be.

Still not sure if I'm going. It all depends on whether I get in at Shelsley. I'd like to do both, but not sure if I can fit both in.

It's a relatively cheap sprint, in a nice setting and is very well organised. I think we got four timed runs last time, so all in all it was good value for money.

Having said that, the track surface is quite poor, broken and loose in places and a bit green under the trees. It beats sitting at home in front of the telly though :lol:
