Cumbria RWYB

Straightliners are running a run-what-you-brung this weekend, the 1st and 2nd of August, at the Cumbrian airfield strip of Kirkbride, just a few miles west of Carlisle near the town of Wigton.
Open to all-comers, admission is just a fiver a head, with race entry at £35 per day, the strip is a full quarter mile, and the Northern NSA have a round on the Sunday. There are NO noise restrictions, unlike tracks such as Elvington, East Kirkby or Woodbridge, with is rather refreshing nowadays!
Being only 38 feet above sea level, Kirkbride has the potential for some good numbers, if you can handle the ripple at the top end of the track that gets the really fast boys airbourne!
There's overnight camping available, and refreshments (including HUGE meals) at the onsite White Heather Hotel.
