Curborough Charity Day

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Charity Day at Curborough Sprint Course near Lichfield, we are absolutely thrilled to be welcomed back this year by the Shenstone & District Car Club. This year’s event will take place on Monday, 30th August 2021. As a demonstration event, runs will not be timed, but will nonetheless provide a great opportunity to have some fun on the figure-of-eight course, aka the “Curburgring”.

We have a full entry of cars and motorcycles spanning eight decades (1900-1980), all makes and models, and we can’t wait to see them in action! Anyone wishing to bring a static display vehicle is also encouraged to book in advance via our online registration system, thus ensuring that a space is allocated in the designated display area.

In accordance with the Government’s Step 4 relaxation of COVID-19 regulations and in line with Motorsport UK’s statement issued on 19th July, we are delighted to be able to welcome spectators this year! However, the following standard COVID-19 rules still apply to all attendees, who must be able to answer “No” to the following questions:

  • Have you been told to quarantine due to international travel within the last 10 days?
  • Have you, or someone you have had close contact with, tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 10 days?
  • Have you been advised to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace?
  • Have you experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 10 days: a new continuous cough or high temperature or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)?

NB: If the answer to any of the above questions is “Yes” then you must not attend. Please note that all requirements regarding COVID-19 are subject to change at a moment’s notice to conform to government and MSUK rules and guidelines in force at any time.

Free spectator parking; £5 per adult, £2.50 per child (under 18) and free for children under five. Refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.

We could not put on the event without the support of our sponsors, to whom we are exceedingly grateful, especially during such unprecedented times. If you would like to consider being a part of this year’s event as a sponsor, needless to say, we would be delighted! There are three standard packages available (Bronze, Silver & Gold).

The sprint course at Curborough was formerly a small part of RAF Lichfield, the busiest airfield in Staffordshire during World War II . Construction of the airfield began in 1939. On completion, 51 Maintenance Unit took up residence on 1st August 1940. The largest inhabitants of RAF Lichfield were 27 Operational Training Unit whose task was to train aircrew on Wellington bombers. After the war effort, 51 MU continued to modify, store and break up aircraft, until the airfield’s closure on 15th April 1958. The Air Ministry eventually sold the entire site for the sum of £240,000 on 1st May 1962.
