Shoe box racing 2023

The Lincolnshire Group are proud to announce that they have been granted a licence, to yet again, hold an International Shoe Box Grand Prix on the superfast Navenburg Ring track, on 8th March 2023.

Race teams who wish to compete are advised to e-mail their request to  beaandtony@hotmail.com for the new Regs and to be issued a race No, where, wherever possible, we will try to retain the number issued to entrants this year. Please include in the e-mail, the name of the race car you wish to appear in the programme or one will be provided by the organising committee. Entry fee for the race remains at £3/car, which will be collected on the night before Scrutiny and please note that I’m afraid, some of the existing racers will not comply with the new Regs, mainly because of the insistence of the IGSBRA, that our scrutineering, must be more thorough.

The entry is limited to 20 cars and competition is strong, but by releasing the Regs early we hope that sufficient time has been provided to ensure Race teams and their Sponsors are able to produce innovative and effective entries, to yet again thrill the spectators on the night.

Tony Johnson   Chief Marshall
