LSR Pre-Twin Peak Tuesdays

Dedicated race simulations prior to the first Scottish Dryslope race of the Summer.

These sessions are ideal for those who have never raced before, as it will let you get to grips with what a race day will bring and how things work.  It is also great for seasoned racers as it will give you a practice run (all be it a different course) for the race.

Firpark Race Simualtion takes place from first red as Firpark is much shorter than Hillend.  There will be big focus on starts and hammering hard over the short distance.

Hillend Race Simualtion takes place from the top and ssecond red depending on your age category.  It will be run just like as race, with timing as well.
