Entries are still open for the 2nd September Aintree Sprint

August 7th, 2017 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, News, sprint

You can still enter our final Aintree sprint of the season, and we will continue to accept entries on-line until at least 9pm on Monday 28th August.

So far we have the smallest number of entries of any of our sprints in recent years, so there are likely to be plenty of competitive runs available for all. The event will definitely run despite being well below break even point!

If you were originally taking part in the cancelled Barbon hillclimb on 1st July, how about coming to Aintree instead? You’ll be made most welcome at our friendly, slickly run event.

It’s a round of:-

    • Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship.
    • Association of North Western Car Clubs Sprint Championship.
    • Auto 66, Northern Counties Speed Hill Climb and Sprint Championship.
    • BARC, SBD Speed Championship.
    • Cross Border Speed Championship.
    • Longton’s Northern Speed Championship 2017.
    • SD34 Motorsport Group Sprint & Hillclimb Championship.
    •     Invited Clubs:
    •     Hagley & District Light Car Club*.
    •     Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club
    •     Reliant Sabre & Scimitar Owners Club
    •     Members of any club in the ANCC or ANWCC regional associations.

    If you are not a member of LMC or one of the invited championships, you can still take part if you are a member of any club in the ANWCC or ANCC regional associations. Or you could join LMC for just £10, which gives you £3 off the sprint entry fee, so your membership effectively adds only £7 to the cost of entering the event. Take part in our Track Day on 3rd October, and you’ll get another £3 reduction on that events entry fee too!

July 2017 Barbon Hillclimb Cancelled

June 29th, 2017 • By: Chairman Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, Uncategorized

Following an inspection of the venue this afternoon (29th June), it is with great regret that we have to advise that we have no option but to cancel this weekend’s Barbon Hillclimb.

There has been an unusually high volume of rain over the past few days which has resulted in the paddock becoming substantially waterlogged. Despite there being no further rain forecast until after the event, it is clear that the ground conditions will not recover sufficiently by Friday evening / Saturday morning to allow competing cars and their attendant vehicles, trailers etc to safely negotiate the paddock. Frustratingly, the course itself is in near perfect condition.

We have no doubt that you will share our disappointment at having to cancel and we can only apologise for making the announcement so close to the event, but we had hoped that things might improve in time to allow the meeting to go ahead.

We have already refunded all competitors who entered on-line and in the next few days will be mailing refunds to those who entered by post.

We are looking at ways of tackling the land drainage issues at Barbon as we strive to improve this spectacular and challenging venue for the future.

Competitors may be interested in an alternative event, the Scammonden Hillclimb being organised by Pendle District Motor Club on Saturday 12th August. See Pendle MC’s website for details of the event which is a round of The Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship, Longton’s Northern Speed Championship, The 2017 ANWCC Speed/Hillclimb/Sprint Championship. SD 34 MSG Sprint &Hillclimb Championship. The Cross Border Speed Championship.
