The BSA GBR Series is sponsored by the British Ski Academy who are providing race support from their team at the events, as well as fantastic prizes for race winners. This is the first year of sponsorship by BSA for this series and we are all very excited about what they can bring to help develop domestic ski racing in the UK.
British Ski Academy Director, Malcolm Erskine said of the sponsorship: “The GBR Alpine Series is the engine room for competitive ski racing in the UK. Many thanks to Skyscanner, Artemis and SkiTeam4 for their support which will translate into some great prizes and bursary awards for training during the 2018 season at the BSA’s new base in Aosta. Watch out for details of prizes and new features. We’re looking forward to some great racing this summer season and as part of the sponsorship, BSA will pay the entry fees to the GBR Alpine Series 2017 for any member of the full senior Delancey British Alpine Ski Team and also racers who are in the top five spots on the national male and female seed lists. Enjoy this winter season and hopefully see you at on the slopes!”
