26/12/2106   Final Inspection
Each year just prior to Speed Week there is a final inspection of the lake by DLRA members. For 2017 the final inspection of the lake will be on the Thursday 16th February 2017. I usually get a call that night or the next day and will post a notice here, on Facebook and on the forum.
17/12/2016   New for 2017, we are introducing a Drivers Profile form as part of the Entry Form. The idea behind this is that it will be used by our radio announcer at Speed Week when you and your vehicle are on the start line.

16/10/2016   The DLRA were preparing to accommodate FIA and FIM records at Speed Week 2017.
With the withdrawal of the Target 550 team there seems to be little need for this now.
But just to be sure, is there anyone else out there that was planning to set international records in 2017?
