The registration fee is £225.00 to be payed in full by 31st January 2015. A deposit of £25.00 is required with registration.

Any additional teams, after the 16 places are taken, will be added to a reserve list (maximum of 4). In the event that a registered team defaults, the first reserve will take their place. If a registered team does not process payment in full by 31st January, the first reserve will be invited to take their place. Non-competing reserve teams will have deposits refunded in full one week before the race.
Each team will receive an official sticker kit for their car which must be applied as per the regulations.
