Race entries:

We have a large number of race entries on file so we will honour those. It is going to by a challenge to get them sorted so bear with us.

If you entered round 5 Hopton from 2020 you have been put in this race. Check the entry list and let us know if there are any changes of category or you don't want the entry.

If you entered another round and want to race this round, we can put you in.

As we are only putting on 3 races this year we will need to refund anyone who entered more than 3 rounds.

We will open this event for general entry once we have slotted everyone who has entries held with us.
