At The Bend we will use The West Track comprising corners 1 – 12 and as you can see includes the long straight in front of the Hotel/Pits/Control tower.

Entry to REGULARITY run by Tracktime Motorsport and SUPERSPRINT run by Marque Sports Car Assoc. is directly through these organisations.  However please note that BMWDCSA will soon be affiliated with MSCA and so the entry fee to their event at The Bend on June 16 will be at a discounted members’ price.
