Get Set for the 2011 SCA Championship

Bookmark and Share

The Scottish cartie racing season will kick off in May with a brand new event at Castle Forbes, near Alford in Aberdeenshire. The Castle Forbes Gravity Race (7th & 8th May), set in the grounds of the castle itself, promises to be very challenging and it will be interesting to see which carties do well there. Can last year's SCA Champion, Team Alford (right), make use of home advantage to start the season with another win, or will one of the many new teams steal their thunder?

Just two weeks after Castle Forbes is the fabulous Border Bogie Challenge (21st May) in Denholm, and then the following month it is back up to Aberdeenshire for the short but intense Catterline Cartie Challenge  (12th June), which will be test drivers and their carties to the limit. Any carties still left in raceworthy condition will then get to race alongside the best teams in the UK at Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme (1st & 2nd July) - the longest and fastest soapbox race in the country.

Alongside all this we'll be running the SCA Championship again. If you're taking part in two or more of these races, why not take your chances and register for the championship too (note - if you've already got a place at Cairngorm you've automatically been registered in the SCA Championship too).

The full list of SCA Championship events is;

Castle Forbes and Border Bogies are accepting entries now, and Catterline entries will start at the beginning of February. Cairngorm entries were sold out within 48 hours of going on sale at the start of November, but you can still register to put your name on the reserve list in case any teams drop out.
