14/03/2017 - Solihull CC Early Season Circuit Races on 1 April 2017
"The closing date for Solihull CC Early Season Circuit Races on 1 April 2017 was set up so that entries were closed. This was set up incorrectly by myself. I have now re-opened entries as there are several places available.

06/03/2017 - LVRC INSURANCE 2017 UPDATE
An updated 2017 Insurance certificate will be put on the web site very shortly for your use when required this year.
Please note the LVRC premium will be paid week commencing 13th March - so we are all covered!
This note will also go on the LVRC web site and FB page.
Motor Vehicle Cover for LVRC Volunteers
We have recently been checking the issue of insurance for lead/following car drivers. This is the current position:
- Motoring insurance providers generally seem to consider that driving a lead or following car for a cycle race is covered as ‘social, domestic and pleasure’ use, providing no payment (other than expenses) is involved;
- The LVRC third party insurance includes 'contingent' cover for drivers of vehicles being used on LVRC business. This means that if a driver was not covered by their own insurance policy for some reason, the LVRC insurance would provide third party cover.
- If lead/following car drivers wish to be sure about their insurance cover, they should contact their own insurers, emphasising that they are assisting in the running of a cycling race as a volunteer in furtherance of their hobby.
Official race helpers do not receive a payment - they are using their vehicle in the pursuit of a hobby, they are not participating in a racing event but assisting in the running of the event. Only if the driver’s own policy does not operate for some reason will the LVRC policy operate.

02/01/2017 - LVRC - Chairman's Message 2017
A new website is currently being developed with a fresh theme that is capable of being updated and changed as and when required by ourselves without the need for third party intervention. It is based on Wordpress, which is easy to self author and develop, and this will negate us having to ask a single web development company to carry our update work for us that is simple to do on a more modern platform.
The content will remain much the same, with fresh features such as an interactive event calendar directly linked to the RiderHQ calendar as well as a standardised Results Page and hyperlinks to social media such as Facebook. But more on this in the next two months.
Again, we'll need volunteers to keep the content up to date and lively, so if you know anything about Wordpress and you want to help out a little, please get in touch with Colin Smith email@example.com who is the NEC member responsible for the website nowadays.
