Sorry, we didn't receive an English translationTour Britannia prides itself on always trying to satisfy the needs and desires of its competitors. Having noted what a lot of our crews have said to us over the past couple of years, as well as taking into account the crowded nature of the classic and historic event calendar, we have decided to move the 2011 date from the first week of September into mid June. The dates for your diary are June 17th to 19th, 2011.
At the same time, we are going to take the opportunity to explore the advantages of another change and run Tour Britannia 2011 over a long weekend. This will increase race track availability, as some circuits do not have planning permission to run meetings during the week. There is also the prospect of dovetailing Tour Britannia into the programme of existing race meetings.
Tour Britannia’s trade mark diverse grids and close racing will be a great addition to any race meeting and the new format is sure to be popular with competitors and spectators alike.
The base for Tour Britannia 2011 will be announced soon with the majority of the action planned for the West Country and Wales, areas rich with smooth tarmac stately home stages, hill climbs and race circuits. We also plan to continue our tradition of introducing new venues to competitive motor sport.
Entry fees will be similar to 2010 but will, sadly, reflect the January 2011 increase in VAT. However, a substantially discounted inclusive entry fee, at the current rate of VAT, will be available until December 15th and will provide a considerable saving.
Amongst our supporters will once again be Fortis who will award watches to the first three crews home in the Regularity Category. This section of Tour Britannia had its best entry to date in 2010 and we are looking to make it even more attractive for competitors in 2011 by incorporating new features. In fact we are delighted just how popular the Regularity Category has become and we believe that it is fast becoming the standard to which similar events must be compared.
Alec Poole said, “Tour Britannia’s change of date to June and its new weekend format will open the event to a significant number of new participants. We believe Britain’s only race tour will continue to go from strength to strength.”
