If places become available in the future, due to pilot cancellations, then replacements will be selected from the waiting list in current WPRS order.
We will start accepting payment from registered pilots from 1st February 2016, at 7pm GMT.
As per the 2016 rules; 75% of places are reserved for British pilots, in keeping with FAI rules, with the remainder set aside for non British pilots. Therefore payments will be accepted in two stages, as follows:
1st February, 7pm GMT, British pilots can start paying for both venues and will be given 5 days to pay. In addition Dutch pilots may pay for Gemona and Swedish pilots for Manteigas. (These venues are being run as joint championships with those nations).
6th February, 7pm GMT; Non British pilots can start paying until the competition is full.
In both instances, your entry into the competition is not confirmed until you have paid, and both competitions are on a ‘first paid, first confirmed’ basis.
Registration is now officially open!
Payment begins 1st February. Your place is NOT confirmed until you have paid.
On 8th February we will, at random, select one ‘Registered & Paid’ pilot to the British Championship to receive FREE entry into one of the British Open rounds. To be eligible to win you simply need to register and pay before 8th February, in order to have a chance of being selected and having your competition place refunded.
