NCRA Road Race
Saturday 21stApril - KCC are hosting a road race on Saturday 21st April near Old.

As Steve Whitby race organiser states:
?We need a driver who is happy to drive ahead of a race group with a commissaire on board. They must
own the car and be a BC member. BC will then fully insure them during the race. Other than that we
need a few volunteers to help with signing on and giving out numbers, making tea and cake to raise
funds for the club.

The race starts at 2pm on the 21st April so Id need people an hour or so before.
