ENTRIES: We ask competitors to let us know A.S.A.P of missing information from your entries. EG: Co-drivers, competition licence numbers, contact details etc. It is much easier if the information is processed before the event rather than you having to write out the details at signing-on. Please e-mail info to Entries Sec. email@example.com
