Following much thought and discussion the committee of the All Wheel Drive Club has decided to reduce the number of rounds of the 2011 XL Challenge series, resulting in the cancellation of 3 of the original fixtures.
The key factors behind this decision are a decline in the number of competitors who are prepared to travel a significant distance to a one day event which in turn leads to reduced economic viability at the type of sites needed to challenge competitors at the top level of the sport. In addition reduced entry numbers do not provide the competitors who do take part with the sense of satisfaction at their achievements which we feel is essential at this level.
Mindful of these factors the 2011 XL Challenge will continue as a 5 round series with the best 4 results to count.
The remainder of the 2011 series will run as follows:
12 June - Wern Ddu, Corwen - Cancelled
14 August - Cowm Quarry, Whitworth - Cancelled
11 September - West Harptree, Avon - sponsored by Frogs Island 4x4
9 October - Venue TBA - Cancelled
13 November - Slindon Safari - sponsored by Gigglepin 4x4
We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause. Appropriate refunds will be made to competitors who have pre-entered the series or cancelled rounds.
