Latest Update – NO FURTHER CALENDAR CHANGES

As you will be aware, the government announced that the travel ban was lifted early (Friday 16th April). Unfortunately, as this was so unexpected, it doesn’t give us enough time to re-arrange a session for sooner Sessions to take place. We understand this will be frustrating, however, the fact things are moving quicker with regards to lockdown easing is good news overall and hopefully means future days/sessions/events can be open to more people at a sooner stage. Once again, thanks for your patience, please keep checking the page for news of our May sessions as these now look like going ahead as planned. Hang in there….we’ll soon all be dragging and drifting like before

Each Driver will need to provide proof of address on arrival and if you can’t provide this or are not a resident in Fife – you WILL be turned away.
