UIM 2020 Calendar
The UIM have now published a revised 2020 international race calendar. The World GT.15 Championship, originally scheduled for Oulton Broad will now be held in Sweden.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy Elliot today following the worrying news regarding his health.
Although London based, Andy was a regular visitor to Oulton on race night.
Get well soon Andy !

After reflecting on what would have definitely been the greatest weekend in the clubs very long history we feel it’s quite apt to share Peter Eyles fantastic photo that he’s named “Reflections”.
The weather wasn’t as kind as it could of been but the challenging and varying wind and water conditions would of certainly crowned some worthy champions
The club are still working very hard behind the scenes in preparation for when racing can safely return for all concerned
Thanks to Peter Eyles for the great image
