WCRA Championships 2020 & 2021

2020 has become a memorable year but a desperately sad one for many, many people – the effects of which will affect us for some time to come.

Our first priority has to be that of the racers’ health and recent developments regarding the pandemic are worrying therefore we have made the decision to cancel all our Championships this year.

Obviously we were looking forward to celebrating our Golden Anniversary in 2020, with so many of us racers in the older generation the health risk is simply too great.  However, we do intend to carry over our 50th into 2021.

See this News Post for full information.

Critique from Members Show 16th January 2016

I found some excellent whippets of very high quality and was more than pleased with all my winners!

Temperament was fantastic all over and the only thing I would have liked to see different in the majority of the whippets was a harder muscular condition, but we all know it is Winter-time!
