IFSS World Cup and European Championship Qualification


This event will be accredited as an IFSS World Cup event and as such any athlete holding an IFSS DID number on the day of competition will gain IFSS World Cup points.


This race is also a qualification race for the BSSF Team for the IFSS Euro Champs in Sweden.


If you wish to be considered for selection then you will need to be a BSSF member on or before the day of the race and this can be done via our website. If you require a DID please apply for this by selecting this option when you join.


You will be racing to qualify for selection, you won't automatically qualify. Selection will be made after the results have been compiled.


IFSS quotas for the GB team are not yet out at this time, but we hope to be able to accommodate a good number of athletes per class for the IFSS EC in November. IF you are thinking you may wish to compete at the Euros, then please make sure you are a member of the BSSF on the day of the event to be considered eligible for selection.


Good Luck!
