THE RACE.

The fantastic Race Loft is situated in the picturesque South Downs countryside, a few miles outside Brighton on the South Coast.

It is 90 feet long, tiled apex roof and has a 9 feet wide aviary the full length, plus each of the eight sections are fitted out with state of the art

Electronic Roller Blinds, so that all the pigeons will be raced on The Darkness System.

 

THIS IS AN UPGRADED PHOTOGRAPH OF THE BRITISH MASTERS INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE STATE OF THE ART PIGEON LOFT COMPLETE WITH THE BRAND NEW 9 FEET WIDE AVIARY SUPPLIED BY D  & D AVIARIES FROM THE WEST MIDLANDS.

 

THE RACE LOFT HAS RECENTLY BEEN ENLARGED AND HAS HAD AN EXTRA 8 FEET MORE ADDED AT THE BACK OF EACH SECTION

FOR THE FULL LENGTH OF THE RACE LOFT.

A MASSIVE 45 FEET LONG x 10 FEET WIDE HEAVY DUTY WIRE AVIARY HAS ALSO BEEN ADDED  TO THE END OF THE RACE LOFT. 

ALL THE SECTIONS FLOORS AND THE CORRIDOR FLOORS HAVE BEEN FITTED WITH HIGH QUALITY ALTRO FLOOR COVERING WHICH IS THE

SAME AS WHAT IS USED IN HOSPITALS. THIS WILL OF COURSE MAKE CLEANING MUCH EASIER.

ALL SECTIONS IN THE RACE LOFT HAVE NOW BEEN FITTED OUT WITH STATE OF THE ART  WOODEN INDIVIDUAL BOX PERCHES WITH A

WIRE GRILL FLOOR TO ALLOW THE DROPPINGS TO GO THROUGH ONTO A TRAY UNDERNEATH.

THIS WILL OF COURSE MAKE IT MUCH HEALTHIER AND EASIER FOR CLEANING OUT.

THESE WERE SUPPLIED BY  D & D AVIARIES FROM THE WEST MIDLANDS.

 

THE MIDDLE SECTION IS NOW 16 FEET LONG AND 14 FEET WIDE AND HAS FOUR SECTIONS EACH SIDE OF IT, ALL WITH CORRIDORS LEADING INTO THE MIDDLE SECTION.

THE RACE RULES/REGULATIONS.

 

This One Loft Race will have a 849 pigeon entry for the Prize Money allocated above. However, if we get more entries, then extra Prize Money will be added when the final total of entries is known and all entrants will be informed.

Entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

So we strongly recommend you get your entries booked in as soon as possible to save any disappointment.

 

All pigeons must be rung with an officially recognised 2021 ring.

 

Entry Fee will be £500 for a Team of 3 pigeons and all the

3 pigeons will be Activated.

 

Your race entries will be confirmed when you pay a £50

Non-Refundable deposit for each team of 3 pigeons that you want to enter. This payment will then guarantee your places.

 

ALL THE FOUR RACES WILL CLOSE AT SUNSET

ON DAY TWO AFTER LIBERATION.

 

If any fancier would like to pay weekly or monthly payments before the delivery of their pigeons, that will be alright with us. Just let Paul Smith know by email or by telephone when you do a payment. Your team or teams of 3 pigeons will of course need to be paid for in full either before or when the pigeons are delivered to the Race Loft.

 

The allocated Prize Money listed above for the 3 x HOT SPOT RACES and the FINAL RACE is guaranteed on us getting 849 pigeons in the Race Loft. However, if we do not reach this target then the Prize Money will be adjusted accordingly and will be stipulated before the start of each race, so that entrants know exactly what they are flying for.

NO LIMIT ON ENTRIES INTO THE RACE.

 

All pigeons that are entered must be vaccinated against PMV 8/10 days before delivery to the Race Loft. This will then give them instant cover when they are put into the Race Loft.

Monday 4th January 2021.

 

All pigeons must be in the Race Loft by

Sunday 11th April 2021,

Your completed OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM, accompanied by a TRANSFER FORM must be delivered with the pigeons.

All the pigeons will be put onto The Darkness System.

 

The Race Organisers will give all the pigeons in the Race Loft lots of TRAINING TOSSES on the line of flight, plus they may also be given some CLUB RACES so that they have the experience they will need to compete in the

3 x HOT SPOT RACES and the FINAL RACE.

 

All pigeons will be transferred and be the property

SULLIVAN BROTHERS (RPRA Number is SO3733) but all the pigeons will be raced under your own name or a

syndicate name, whichever you prefer.

 

We would also like you to name your pigeons on the OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM

when your pigeons are delivered to the Race Loft.

 

In all the 3 x HOT SPOT RACES and the FINAL RACE all the pigeons that are fit enough that were entered into the BRITISH MASTERS INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE

will be race marked, then convoyed and liberated weather permitting at the selected race point.

 

All the pigeons entered in the

BRITISH MASTERS INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE pigeons will be competing for all the TROPHIES and PRIZE MONEY. As all pigeons in the Race Loft will already be ACTIVATED at the start of the race series and so they will all be eligible to compete for any of the

TROPHIES and PRIZE MONEY.

3 x HOT SPOT RACES or the FINAL RACE.

Lee & Ian Sullivan from Pyecombe, West Sussex have been racing for numerous years and have had some outstanding performances in Club, Federation & National Races over the past few years.

Not many fanciers have achieved what they have done.

They have won 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th & 8th OPEN BRITISH INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP CLUB from

WADEBRIDGE in 2006.

1st OPEN NATIONAL FLYING CLUB from ANGERS in 2008 against 5,957 pigeons with a winning velocity of 1279ypm.

2nd OPEN BRITISH INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP CLUB from GUERNSEY in 2012.

1st OPEN BRITISH BARCELONA CLUB from MESSAC in 2013.

 

Lee Sullivan had been thinking about running a One Loft Race from Southdown Lofts, which is situated in the picturesque South Downs countryside, West Sussex and after some meetings with Paul Smith it was finally decided to start the

1st BRITISH MASTERS NATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE and

have a HOT SPOT RACE and the FINAL RACE in 2019 in conjunction with the BRITISH INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP CLUB giving pigeon fanciers and other entrants the chance to win either the

HOT SPOT RACE and the FINAL RACE in the

BRITISH MASTERS NATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE

whilst at the same time competing to try to win both the coveted

BRITISH INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP CLUB

YOUNG BIRD RACES.

 

However, we have now decided to race the pigeons on the North Road because it is easier to train the pigeons for their ultimate task and therefore we have renamed the race the

BRITISH MASTERS INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE.

 

Lee Sullivan will act as the Loft Manager and will be responsible for the daily work and the training of the pigeons in the Race Loft ably assisted by the Assistant Loft Manager Ian Sullivan and his Loft Assistant Mel Vaughan.

 

Paul Smith who is known all over the world for his

outstanding racing performances in

Mid-Week, Club, Federation, Open, Amalgamation, Combine & National Races when he was racing under his own name.

He was also a co-partner in the world famous Regency Lofts. 

He was also selected as the Great Britain Pigeon Olympiad Team Manager for two Pigeon Olympiads.

 

Since Paul packed up racing his own pigeons he has specialised, entered and travelled to scores of top 

One Loft Races literally all over the world.

 

He has also acted as the

United Kingdom Race Co-ordinator/Shipper & Administration

for scores of top One Loft Races literally all over the world

and has vast experience in this field.

 

Paul Smith will also be in charge of the Administration side of the

BRITISH MASTERS INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE.
