Curborough Sprint May 2015

Sunday 17th May saw the club's 3rd speed championship event of the year take place at Curborough Sprint course near Lichfield. This is the spiritual home of the L7C sprint series and is one of just two events that the club organises itself (for the rest we are an invited club at other clubs' events). Some competitors got some sneaky practice in on the British Motorsport Marshalls Club sprint the day before and then stayed over for a BBQ under one of the club's Coleman shelters. Although Sunday wasn't quite as warm as Saturday, the weather stayed dry and we saw some close competition. The full results can be found here but the highlight of the day was Simon Rogers (pictured) breaking the class 7 record which had stood since 2007 with a fantastic time of 54.24s. On board footage can be seen here. If this has whetted your appetite, either to spectate or compete, then the club runs it's next event at Curborough using the alternative figure of 8 layout on 30th August. The next event for our championship is this coming weekend 23rd/24th May at Gurston Down.
