Post by: craig dickson on May 23, 2014, 07:18:58 PM
Hi Everyone

The booking office has now opened for entries to the next exciting event at Branston. Entries to Mark Wild please and details can be found on our website: http://www.bmprs.co.uk/

This venue is superb in terms of its great facilities and its excellent lake perfectly suited to what we do. If you are reading this thread and want to come along and join us even just to watch and enjoy the fun, you will be made more than welcome!

Here are a few previously unpublished photos which I captured from the first event a few weeks ago:
