UPDATED: 11 June 2021
It’s with massive regret that we have to
announce the cancellation of the 2021 UIM
GT15 and OSY400 World Championships.
This choice has been a very hard one for the
club to make and a huge amount of time,
resources and effort has been made in an
attempt to make the event happen.
The UIM are supportive of our decision and
we thank them for this. We have expressed a wish to apply again for 2023.
The ultimate decision was made because we were unable to satisfy the requirements for an international event by guaranteeing quarantine and restriction free travel to and from the UK for the overseas competitors and officials.
Our attention is now on a successful domestic shortened season with an “all class” National event on the weekend of Saturday the 17th and Sunday the 18th of July.
Stay safe everyone and fingers crossed the current Goverment restrictions are lifted, as planned, on the 21st of June.
4x4 Launch vehicle:
• MOT • Annual Service • Road Tax • Insurance • Valet
The clubs thanks must go to Wayne @ Moyse Motors for his continued support in taking care of everything for us & also to Thomas Mantripp for cleaning off 18 months worth of dirt
The L&OBMBC Roadmap
Thursday 17 June Wet driver rescue training
Thursday 24 June RACE NIGHT 1 @ 6pm
In addition to these dates we also have.......
Rescue Crews: First-aid Training & Dunk Rig Familiarisation, further info regarding dates/location will be published very soon. Compound work parties to prepare the equipment for the season.
Race Officials: CPA Ratification Training - email contact will be made with you all shortly.
Members: Please get your subscriptions paid up ASAP. We will NOT be issuing these on the 24th of June event so get in contact with our membership representative in advance of this to get yours sorted.
We are aiming to honour these dates & return to racing in June but this is obviously subject to Goverment & local guidelines/approval. Our fingers are well & truly crossed .
