  • New Abingdon Long Course Sprint – 9th April 2016

  • The 20th Abingdon CAR-nival – 4th / 5th June

    The 20th, yes, 20th, Abingdon CAR-nival weekend took place on the 4th and 5th June this year. Over the past 19 years the event has raised over £250,000 for charitable causes, including the local charity ‘Friends of Stowford House‘ and the Army Benevolent Fund. This year we are also supporting needs even closer to home, The Dalton Barracks Soldiers Social Welfare Fund.

    140 sprinters and 100 rally cars competed in the Abingdon Car-nival on the 4th and 5th June.  The weather could not have been better, with light cloud on Saturday and bright, spectator-singeing sunshine all day Sunday. Rally results were live on-line and the complete set of results for the Autosolo, double-Sprint and Rally are over on the dedicated web site at

    Many thanks to all those who took part, especially for keeping mostly to the black stuff, allowing the event to run smoothly. A very special thanks to the huge team of volunteers that made it all possible.
