There is much to do with various negotiations on the sponsorship front, BSB teams are sniffing to be involved, and even one or two celebrity solo riders have expressed interest in piloting an F1 outfit. Clearly, the up-coming year is going to be a season to remember for many reasons. Not least of all the attendance of all the top teams from the UK on some very interesting machinery.

    YOU can rub shoulders with the great and good (and the not so good) by joining us at the awards evening for the 2015 championship. We will be recognising a terrific year by a worthy pair of young champions, and many other stellar performances.
