Please take a moment to read through the fixture list and Season Notes as there have been updates since last season.

Fixtures, Details & Results (updated after each event)

  • R1 - 29th October - Thorndon Park (Thrift Green)
    • Unfortunately due to Thorndon Park being booked for another event on the 29th October, the proposed 1st round fixture has now had to be cancelled as there was no other venue available at short notice to take it's place. This is a real shame as I know many like the course and running there each season but hopefully we can be back there next year. That now means there will only be 4 races this season with round 1 now being hosted by Benfleet RC on Sunday the 19th November at Hadleigh Downs.
