This is the final race in the 'Winter Championship", 3rd and last race after the Tinker Cup and Club 6 for club championship based on actual time following on from the ever-popular Tinker Cup and the Club 6; all of these races are handicapped, but the Championship is based on an aggregate best-time basis.
Please add your name on the list at the club for your handicap needed prior to day of registration and also try to give some meaningful information of current form, if no race form then perhaps someone you think is of similar ability who has some race form. The course is about 5 miles to help you estimate.
