SCA Championship Opens at Border Bogies

 Team Rooket
 SCA Championsip Races 2013

The first race of the 2013 SCA Championship takes place at Border Bogies next weekend. The championship will be run over 5 races in Scotland, with participating teams picking up points at each race.

There are separate prizes for Soapbox Cartie and Gravity Sidecar teams, and there are no "standard rules" - you just have to build a machine than is eligible to compete at the individual events.

It is not too late to register your team. You only have to take part in three of the races to qualify, and entry is free, so if you are planning to be competing at any of the races then why not register now.

Blistering Start for SCA Championship

The 2012 SCA Championship got off to a blistering start under clear blues skies at the Border Bogie Challenge last weekend. A thoroughly convincing performance from Team Rooket gave them maximum points, with Alford and Where's Me Spanners left to fight for the second place points. A poor first run by Charlie Jackson left Alford trailing until the very last run, when he managed to knock over 5 seconds from his previous best time to just grab the second place from Gerry and Dom Quinn.

Pist'n'Broke's late withdrawal of their two carties from the championship means there is a limited field this year, and barring any accidents Team Rooket are now strong favourites to lift the trophy for the second year running.

In the gravity sidecar class there are just two teams competing this year. Bush Racing's sleek and innovative recumbent sidecar design was too fast on the day for Team Weasel's new and still incomplete machine, but with both teams struggling to compete in the next race at the Catterline Cartie Challenge next month it could still go either way this year.
