Curborough Final Instructions


Recommended Posts

Hi Mark, just got home and checked mail, I haven't got anything at all and Kristy has just got a blank email from Emily refering to the 19th of May with nothing attached.


Could you possibly ask Emily to resend or can I contact her direct?

You must proceed back to the bottom loop (start line area).



· First timed runs will start at 1 p.m.



· Should you have to refuel in the paddock you are particularly asked to carry out this procedure in an open space with no smoking or working going on in the vicinity. We also remind you regarding the general safety of mechanics and competitors when working on their vehicles in the paddock particularly when the vehicles are jacked up or on axle stands.

· An ambulance with trained personnel will be available on the day courtesy of D.R.R. Rescue and a Paramedic will be in attendance.



As a participant in this driving event, you are responsible for the preparation of your car. If you are unsure of its condition it should be checked by a competent mechanic prior to the event.

All cars MUST be fitted with a Safety Roll-Over Structure - Competitor Safety [C©].

You are advised that the traditional standard Caterham rollover bar does not meet these requirements. Any car fitted with the traditional standard rollover bar that arrives at an event will not be allowed to compete.



It is important to ensure that the tyres which you use on the day are acceptable for the class which you have entered. Please re-read the section in the supplementary regulations which relates to your chosen class and verify that your tyres are correct for that class. If you are still unsure please contact Competition Secretary Mark Durrant and he will be pleased to advise.
