Southern Sprint Championships Series Info
Sprint race in a urban and semi-urban environment. Age class winners will become the South West Sprint Champions for this year. All are welcome to enter, but only members of clubs from the SWOA region are eligible for awards.
Directions / Parking

There is a Prologue and a Final, with the South West Champion determined by the result in the Final only. The results of the Prologue determine the start order for the Final – reverse order, fastest starts last. Those who do not successfully complete their prologue may run in the Final but cannot become champion.

Request for helpers
As marshalling is an important requirement at such events, as well as the usual event team, I would appreciate if you could help us out for about 90 minutes either in the morning or the afternoon (ideally both!).
Could you respond to this request (either way) by Saturday 21 July to enable Roger & Judy Craddock to arrange cover for the various ‘jobs’. Let them know if you have any preference.
