Following the success of the Oakamoor Hill Climb Revival, we are extremely grateful to the Shenstone & District Car Club for providing Curborough Sprint Course near Lichfield as an alternative venue, to host a charity sprint.
The sprint will take place on Monday, 31st August 2020. 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, first introduced in 2014.
We are thrilled to have a full entry with all decades represented and a superb variety of makes and models, cars and motorcycles both, and we can’t wait to see them in action on Monday! Although the event is closed to the public, we will be doing some live streaming throughout the day, both around the paddock and on track, so don’t forget to like our Facebook page SCYP Curborough Charity Sprint to see photos, updates and any live action. The entry list is available here.
Below is a link to the Final Instructions in PDF format.
All Entrants must complete a self-declaration (see link below) and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, 28th August 2020.
Sadly, due to Covid-19, this year’s event will be closed to the public but we are looking at ways of transmitting some live action throughout the day and event highlights.
We could not put on the event without the support of our sponsors, to whom we are exceedingly grateful, especially during such unprecedented times.
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.
