Sunday Racing & Events

Sunday racing will be run as normal, with volunteers running the racing until the end of the year (then the DutyMan rota). We still need volunteers for all of these dates, except the 6th December.  If you can help on any off these days, please contact Dave on

We have inevitably had to cancel the Christmas Party, but we will be running the usual Christmas racing programme with an additional event:

Sunday 6th December: Normal Club racing (1st warning: 1100)
Sunday 13th December: Normal Club racing (1st warning: 1100)
Sunday 20th December: Normal Club racing (1st warning: 1100)
Saturday 26th December: Boxing Day Pursuit Race (Datum: 1130)
Sunday 27th December: NO Club racing
Monday 28th December: The Draycote Double (1st warning: 1100) (see below)
Friday 1st January: New Year’s Day Pursuit Race (Datum: 1330)
Sunday 3rd January: Normal Club Racing (1st warning: 1100)


With the Draycote Dash having been postponed till March we wanted to give our members (only members) the chance to compete in a Dash-like event over the Christmas period. It will consist of 2 back-to-back average lap races over a trapezoid course. There will be 1, 2 or 3 starts depending on the numbers competing.
It is scheduled for the day after the government-permitted Christmas 3-household get togethers, so there should be no commitment to visit friends and family and you will be back with just your own household / bubble. What better excuse to get out of that than the Draycote Double! We look forward to seeing you there!

Steve Irish’s excellent coaching programme for members will re-start:
12th / 13th December: Aero squad
19th / 20th December: Laser squad

Ladies Changing Rooms

We are thrilled to announce that work has now started on the renovation of the ladies changing rooms and should be completed by the time we are able to reopen changing rooms.
