Kingdom Stages 

The first weekend in November, that means its Crail time again, and the grand finale of the STRC.  November provides its own challenges, with the airfield sure to be greasy in the morning and weather conditions varying depending on what rolls in off the North Sea.

If you don't know Crail, its a quick and flowing venue with a high standard of surface (concrete and tar).  There's 57 miles over 8 stages; to beat the darkness we start early and you can scroot the night before.

Announcement: Summer Stages 

Willie Greig and his team would appreciate as many crews as poss on Friday night , owing to the early start on Saturday morning. Please contact him, number is in the regs, and let him know your intentions.
