The ‘Great’ British summer may be playing havoc with many country shows and sporting fixtures, but one exciting Championship is still taking place, despite its host show being cancelled with just one week to go. Planned as a highlight of the CLA Game Fair in Leicestershire (sadly cancelled due to bad weather), the first ever British Championship of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS SERIES has found a new home at BUG JAM 26 – a three-day long VW festival taking place at the Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire : 20-22 July.
Ten months in the planning, countless hours of competitor training and thousands of pounds invested. When the first ever British Championship of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS SERIES seemed destined to be cancelled just seven days before it was due to begin, event organisers STIHL GB determined to put together a rescue plan. With exactly a week to go before the start of the event, a new home had to be found for the 44 tonne mobile stage,
40 plus people involved in demonstration events, and the 12 Championship contenders due to take part. And today STIHL has announced that with the grateful co-operation of all involved, a full three days of sporting action will now take place at BUG JAM 26 (Santa Pod Raceway, 20-22 July).
BUG JAM 26 is a three-day long combined music and VW motor enthusiasts’ festival, which regularly attracts around 35,000 fans and festival-goers to Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire. Visitors enjoy live music, stunt displays, VW Drag Racing, Monster Trucks, car competitions, BMX and motocross displays and more. Now petrol-heads visiting the event will get to see even more high-octane action, including 250cc chain saw races that form part of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS SERIES events.
