IVCA Safety Briefing Dates for the 2023 Season

Hi folks,

 

I know you are all in the process of renewing your membership for the 2023 racing season, so I though it might be good that you know the dates of the safety briefings so you can put them in your diary.

Please therefore note the following:

Saturday 11th March (afternoon)

Tuesday 14th March (evening sessions).

Tuesday 28th March (evening sessions)

You will be notified by email of the exact times nearer the date.  All briefings will be held at the Springfield Hotel, Leixlip.

Race numbers will only be distributed at the safety briefings, and only to the competitor.  You will not be able to ask a mate to collect your number.

Best regards,

Mike Haynes
