The Cross Border Speed Championship

Three Sisters Cancelled

Today’s bad news is that another of our sprint events has been cancelled.

The 3 Sisters event on 02/08/2015 will not run.

The reasons are not known, but the message is clear from the Chester Site.

This is a big disappointment, since it is normally a well liked and well attended event, but on the plus side, I think it does support the view of the Speed Sub-Committee that an increased menu of XBC events makes our Championship more robust against changes like this that are outwith our control.

Thanks to Angus for drawing this to our attention.

Time to get those July Kames entries in !!!

Championship Regs 2015

The Speed Sub-Committee has great pleasure in announcing that the MSA has now approved the 2015 Brockbanks Solicitors Cross Border Speed Championship regulations. The Regulations & Entry Form document is now available and will be sent to all those who we can contact directly. In addition, it will be made available for download.

The new rounds of the Championship will provide a real opportunity for more people to take part, giving more choice and more opportunity to compete for the overall, and class positions, than ever before. We hope that this year will be a success and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

The Cross Border Speed Championship 2015

The Cross Border Speed Championship 2015 is being run by a new small sub-committee, with all new people.

It is hoped and intended to bring improvement to the Cross Border Championship (XBC) in a number of areas, and there is full intention to continue with the October Kames event, which has always been viewed as a good season closer.

This Championship is ideal for the Scottish Competitor looking for a little bit of variety, or a few new or extra events in England, or even Wales. The overlap with some Scottish Championship events makes it a very attractive proposition, and very easy to participate at a competitive level. The reverse is also true, where the English Competitor has the opportunity to enter a number of Scottish events.

The Championship Regs are currently with the MSA, and as soon as they are approved we will open the entry list.

The 2015 Season Calendar is as follows :

01 Sat 11/04/2015 Kames CW Sprint EACC

Crossing the border . . . . .

Olivers Mount http://youtu.be/eaTzuvUU6uk
This is a new venue for the XBC, in response to competitor demand.

Scammonden http://youtu.be/17TysCaHN1Q
This place is steep and wild, and despite making some of our Scottish events look like a five star luxury option, this zero facilities and lots of runs venue is raved about by competitors who were keen to see it included again.

Teesside http://youtu.be/C9LI0COdCj4
This is a great kart track, which is quite demanding. A very well run event with lots of runs, and a firm favourite with competitors.

Barbon http://youtu.be/gvcYk9a_IMA
Possibly the shortest hill climb in the UK, thwarts its brevity as one of the top favourites with competitors.

Three Sisters http://youtu.be/iabs7uQzO_Q
Another kart track, and a two lap layout with a particularly challenging final exit bend. Great fun !!

Ty Croes, Anglesey
National Circuit http://youtu.be/uju1sLjZGj8
International Circuit http://youtu.be/sZ0rCUVRVT0
Yes . . . It is a long way away !!
Originally added in 2013 as a “one off” “never to be repeated” special, for those that made the treck, this event is in a legue of its own, so good that it has stayed on the calendar, running the National circuit on the Saturday, and the International circuit on the Sunday. Take the family, make a weekend of it. Brilliant !!

This place needs no introduction, and if Doune is the “King of Hills”, then this is the Queen !!
