The X-Lakes Entry Process

A maximum of 50 places are available for the two-day ‘Hardcore’ X-Lakes challenge. If they apply, the previous years’ top ten (as per results listed on the website) will be automatically offered an option for a place to compete in the two-day Challenge event.

The three top-placed competitors in the previous year’s one-day ‘Academy’ event will also be offered an option to participate in the two-day ‘Hardcore’ Challenge event if they want to take part.

The remaining places in the two-day ‘Hardcore’ Challenge event will then be awarded on the basis of a ballot after entries have been submitted. The organisers will reserve five places as wildcard positions to be awarded at their discretion.

25 places for those who register for the one-day ‘Academy’ event will be awarded by ballot. Don’t try to register for both. The two events are targeted at different pilots.

One-day, ‘Academy’ pilots can also register for entry in one of the LCC competition events. Unfortunately, two-day ‘Hardcore’ Challenge registrants will have to wait to see if they are successful in the ballot, but, if unsuccessful, then entry into one of the LCC events is an option for them too.

If successful entrants will be invited to make their charitable donation. If they fail to do so then their place will be offered to another pilot.
