Tour Britannia 2011

Tour Britannia prides itself on always trying to satisfy the needs and desires of its competitors and having noted what a lot of crews have said over the past couple of years, as well as taking into account the crowded nature of the classic and historic event calendar, the organising team has decided to move the 2011 date from the first week of September into mid June.

The dates of the popular and successful race & rally event, for your diary will be June 17th to 19th, 2011.

At the same time, they are taking the opportunity to explore the advantages of another change and run Tour Britannia 2011 over a long weekend. This will increase racetrack availability, as some circuits do not have planning permission to run meetings during the week and 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. The Tour also plans to continue its tradition of introducing new venues to competitive motor sport.

Among the event supporters will once again be Fortis who will award watches to the first three crews home in the Regularity Category, a section of Tour Britannia that had its best entry to date in 2010 and it will be made it even more attractive for competitors in 2011 by incorporating new features. In fact the Tour organisers are delighted just how popular the Regularity Category has become and believe that it is fast becoming the standard to which similar events must be compared.

The event's commercial director 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."

The 2011 Regulations and Entry Form are available on the Tour Britannia website
