Default British Winter Open Championship 6th/7th Feb 2016

British Winter Open Championship

BRCA 10th Off-Road
2016 British Winter Open Championship
6th / 7th February 2016

Winter 2015/16:
Many clubs hold their Winter Series of events through the winter months. Check around at your clubs to see what’s been hosted in your areas. Many racers turn into what I call fair weather racers and move into the Indoor Season events. Many clubs up and down the country have indoor venues and there is a lot of racing on carpet with man made jumps and other features.

The 2016 BRITISH WINTER OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP:
The BRCA 10th Section run a prestigious one off event called the British Winter Open Championship.
This year the date is 6th/7th of February. The 2WD event will be run on Saturday the 6th and the 4WD event on Sunday the 7th.
A perfectly timed event, that sees the racers compete with their new rides and certainly great preparation towards the forthcoming season.

Hosts of the 2016 event:
The club is situated in the Moulton College where it has grown to attract racers from all over the country for club night racing and at its popular winter series. Even racers from Europe pay ‘Stone’ as it’s known, a visit.
The club hosted this event (BWOC) back in 2013 where it did a fabulous job. Now we are back and the club is as excited as ever in holding a great event. Matt Owen the Chairman of the club is probably one of the most passionate organisers in our sport and with him at the forefront, we are more than confident of an amazing weekend for the British Winter Open Championships (BWOC).

The Track and Surface:

The surface for the BWOC will be Astro Turf. A high grip blue Astro.
As usual the club always has some very demanding jumps and jump sequences along with some slippery corners just to keep your attention on a demanding lap.
We are all looking forward to this great event.

Controlled Tyre
The 2016 BWOC permits only two types of tyre for the rear axle.
The permitted rear tyres for 2wd and for 4wd are :-
Schumacher Mini-Spike (Original & Mk.2) and Ballistic Buggy Mini-Spike.
Front tyres are a free choice.
Compound and quantity used is not restricted.

Event Information
Event schedule:
This event will have 2 practice sessions, 4 rounds and finals for all. If you manage to get into that prestigious A Final, then it will be 3 legs for those guys to decide the BWOC Champion of 2016 in 2WD. The same method the next day for 4WD.
The doors at Silverstone normally open up around 6.30-6.45am
Practice session will start no later than 8.00am in heat order. Be ready to race by 7.45am if you are in the early heats.

Silverstone and BRCA Personnel:

Of course like any club; there are so many people to mention.
Lots and lots of people behind the scenes make these events happen. The usual suspects will be involved for the event to do what they do best.
Like mentioned before, Matt Owen once again heading up the ‘Stone’ team to pull the event together.
The below will be trackside helping with the event organisation. Along with others from the Silverstone committee and a number of club members.
Matt Owen
Paul Upton
Lee Romang (commentator)
Colin Buck
Sonia Mellett
Simon East
George Carter
And many more that I don’t know as yet
The BRCA crew headed by our Chairman Paul Worsley that will have his Team of personnel that actually run the timing, schedules, refereeing etc., just like at our National events.

Booked in a few minutes ago, but the 4wd paypal basket item shows up as £822,115.76 so I also added 2x 2wd basket items.

Hope this doesn't cause an issue Tony.

Just double checked the links and paypal basket items and seems all links etc. are fixed and working now
