So with Round 5 at Bathgate causing some slippery moments for some if not all competitors and marshals last weekend we're all set for a fantastic event at Glendearg near Galashiels next month.
Forrest Estate - June 11-12
Last weekend saw a large group of competitors and marshals drawn to Forrest Estate in Dumfries & Galloway for Round 4 of the Scottish Cross Country Championship. Amidst variable weather, and enthusiastically welcomed by the local wildlife (the Forrest Estate midges are something special), we were very fortunate to be able to stage an 8 mile course around some of the iconic Borders Hillrally stages. By kind permission of Fred Olsen Estates we were able to welcome 30 competitors who gave it their all on the fast flowing stages (and occasional more technical quarry). With some obstacles that were not for the faint hearted, the stage really sorted both the mechanically resilient and the high speed drivers from the pack, and we saw steadily improving times throughout the weekend, interspersed with the occasional excitement – the culmination of which was Karl Gudgeon’s spectacular barrel roll over the finish light beam! No time recorded by the automated clocks, but fortunately the marshals in the timing caravan were not distracted and he still managed a (very respectable) time for the lap. The crew were fortunately unharmed, but the car had managed to damage all four corners, so we wish Karl’s GSR Mini a speedy recovery! Results from the event, alongside the current championship standings for both competitors and officials are here….
Results for round 4 are now up
2016A warm welcome to the start of the 2016 SCCC season.
This year, the Championship will be for those who register (FREE), but you must register for your results to be counted.
To enter the 2016 SCCC you need to complete and return the Championship Registration Form before the first event you wish your points to count from. For the championship, your best 5 results will count towards the overall results.
Please email the fully completed registration form to the Entry Secretary as listed in the documents.
Each event will be a two day event although competitors will be able to enter for a one day run and be placed into the One Day Championship.
Importantly, online entry and payment will be used, and early entry is advised - given the challenges in financing events we will make a decision at the cut off date in the event's supplementary regulations on whether to run it.
As ever, we need marshals to help before, during and after events, so if you can assist, please contact Dean Pugh, Chief Marshal
As more information becomes available, it will be publicised.
