2022 XBC July Excitement

2022 07 12 Tour de France

The XBC calendar is a little quieter at the moment, some respite for those with family holiday commitments perhaps. However today’s sporting spectacle seen in this photo was to be found at the Tour de France Morzine to Megève stage, where only a few minutes after departure, this video clip shows the entire pack pass through the Montriond rond point in less time than a single run at a Speed Event !!

With entries now closed for a full event at Barbon on the 16th, this suberb hillclimb is expected to be good for those making the trip, and anyone still needing new “QR coded” Car Stickers should see Dave there.

Looking forward to Curborough on the 14th August, entries are now full, with your XBC organisers first and second on the reserve list. You can can add yourself to the reserve list with this link, rather than the normal entry link on the website.

The main upcoming event is however the July Kames Summer Sprint Weekend, where we can rely on a “value for money” number of timed runs after a single practise run. In addition there is the expected additional excitement of an inter-club challenge, which is always good for bringing drivers from disparate classes together. Entertainment in some shape or form is promised for the Saturday night, following the provision of a good evening meal from the girls in the canteen. Here is the official promotional poster from EACC.

This is always a great event, the best chance of “sunshine at Kames”, but good competition and good craic guaranteed. So it is time to get your entries in before it is too late, and a link is available on our 2022 Events Page.

We hope to see you there.

Time is running out to get your entry in for Barbon . . . . . .

I am away from home right now, so am unable to post the Regs on the site until Monday, but you can do it all on line from links on this page :

XBC Scoring has been updated to Scammonden, but site security is such that I am unable to make this available from my laptop while on the move, so please check the site on Monday evening.

By Monday evening we should also have available Results for all past 2015 events, and any more Regs and Entry forms for future events that are available.
