Pist'n'Broke's hopes of securing the 2011 SCA Championships took a heavy blow at the Catterline Cartie Challenge on Sunday when they crashed out on the first bend during practice. Failing to negotiate the tricky right-hander at Jimmy's put them up on the bank and snapped their front axle, effectively ruling them out for the rest of the day and meaning that they would collect no points for the day.

Team Rooket had to work hard to stay in the race, with two major crashes giving them plenty of work on in between the runs, but their biggest downfall was a 5 second penalty for clipping a cone in their second run, which dropped them down from 1st to 4th place on aggregate.

Get Set for the 2011 SCA Championship

The Scottish cartie racing season will kick off in May with a brand new event at Castle Forbes, near Alford in Aberdeenshire. The Castle Forbes Gravity Race (7th & 8th May), set in the grounds of the castle itself, promises to be very challenging and it will be interesting to see which carties do well there. Can last year's SCA Champion, Team Alford (right), make use of home advantage to start the season with another win, or will one of the many new teams steal their thunder?

Just two weeks after Castle Forbes is the fabulous Border Bogie Challenge (21st May) in Denholm, and then the following month it is back up to Aberdeenshire for the short but intense Catterline Cartie Challenge  (12th June), which will be test drivers and their carties to the limit. Any carties still left in raceworthy condition will then get to race alongside the best teams in the UK at Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme (1st & 2nd July) - the longest and fastest soapbox race in the country.

Alongside all this we'll be running the SCA Championship again. If you're taking part in two or more of these races, why not take your chances and register for the championship too (note - if you've already got a place at Cairngorm you've automatically been registered in the SCA Championship too).
