2018 / 2019 Club Race League



After a bit of discussion internally, we have decided to restart the Club Race League for the 2018/2019 season.

We are looking to make it as simple as possible and are looking to select 10-12 local races that our club members can complete in, with points awarded based on position, age category, etc.
