Curborough 8 (L7C)

After many years the course layout was amended for the 2014 season and a 'cross-over' has been added that links Molehill to the Shenstone Straight. See the following image for the new sequence of events. The L7C will continue to use the original layout for it's May sprint and the new figure of 8 for the August sprint.
