Immersion Tests


Good news for our race fans......


    16 drivers completed the annual Osprey Immersion test yesterday. L&OBMBC drivers Ray Birnie, Brian Block, Andy Gall, Robin Stoddard, Leon King & Danny Drake all took part. Some of ther other competitors in attendence were Steve Hoult, Ralph White, Richard Stallard (Jameys son), Jim Noone, Mette Bjerknaes & Harvey Smith.

    With many well known drivers still to go and 16 confirmed bookings for the 7th of April it all looks promising for the 2019 season.

Classic Car Show

Training Seminar


A good day was had at the annual scrutineer training seminar. All of the clubs regular scrutineers are now briefed & ready for the new season after passing the practical & written assessments

    We also carried out several hydroplane height checks along with a UIM F4 cockpit inspection.


Transponder Trials


We finally got to carry out the initial trials of the transponder lap timing system at the weekend. The results were very satisfactory with good, strong signals & feedback from the transponder & receiver.

    Our thanks must go to Jonny Peak & Mike Wray for ‘jumping in’ the cold Broads on such an awful day & to Thomas Mantripp & Brian Shulver for operating the test boat. We also had a positive response from our timekeepers who came to take a look.

    The club will now work hard to fund the equipment & discuss the various options with the supplier Super Sport Systems, we will update you all very shortly with some further information
