LMC Start of Season Lunch and Championship Awards Presentation **Cancelled**

February 1st, 2020 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, Results & Reports, Social Events, sprint, trackdays

It is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the Start of Season Lunch & 2019 LMC Championship Awards Presentation that was planned for 15th March, entirely due to a lack of interest from members. Just half the award winners had booked to go, and with a total of just 44 tickets sold, the event was simply not viable. We will contact everyone who has bought a ticket and will issue a full refund in the next few days.

The Championship awards will now be available to collect at this year’s Aintree &/or Barbon events.

We aim to hold an End of Season lunch or dinner with an awards presentation in November in the hope that greater interest will be shown at the end of the year.

November 25th, 2019 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, regs, sprint

The 2020 Motorsport UK Yearbook (the Blue Book) has been published and is now available to download in full HERE

The terminology used for all competition licence grades has changed in all disciplines and every driver and passenger in competitive motorsport now needs to have a competition licence. Some of these are free, some are not.

Drivers competing in Sprints &/or Hillclimbs need to be aware that there have been significant changes to Section S that they will need to read.

Unfortunately, Brian was unable to be with us this time as he was being fettled by the NHS, so we send him our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
