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.

Inter Association Team Sprint 2015

We have been asked if we could field a team of three cars for the Inter Association Sprint, details  are pasted in below. One perk of participation is that half of your entry fee is paid for you. Any interested parties should get back to either myself or Dave in the first instance, as soon as possible.


East Midlands Association of Car Clubs

Inter Association Team Sprint 2015

The event this year will be held at Thoresby Park on Sunday September 13^th.

The event will be organised by Nottingham Sports Car Club on the weekend of 12/13^th September.

The Nottingham  Sports Car Club organises a sprint event on both days, and any driver wishing to enter the Saturday event will be most welcome.
Only the results from the Sunday event will count towards the Inter Association Team Sprint Challenge. But any newcomer to Thoresby Park will get experience of the course by entering the Saturday event.

Thoresby Park is a venue only used on these two days by Nottingham Sports Car Club each year, no other competitive motorsport event is allowed on the venue.

The course is on parkland estate roads and the Nottingham Sports Car ClubTrack Licence has a restriction in that the Racing Car Class is only up to 2000cc.

Thoresby  Park is in North Nottinghamshire 5 miles south of Worksop. The stately home in the par k was the ancestral home of the Earl’s of Manvers, the hall is now a “Warners Leisure Hotel” which is 200yds from the sprint course. You could book for the weekend Friday to Monday and enjoy the weekend in comfort with the added attraction of entertainment every evening.

There are other hotels and B&B’s in the area, also on site the club has an area for camping, mobile homes etc within 100yds of the course.

On Saturday night the club organises an evening meal in the Estates Private Village Hall (licensed bar) which is within walking distance of the camping area.

The weekend is unlike any other  you may have competed on, a stunning setting in beautiful parkland in front of a stately home, roads you probably will have never competed on before with a very social and friendly crowd of people.
