Racing...where are the nearest races?

I regularly see postings on websites and forums asking where the nearest races are to a particular part of the country. This map of races and series from the 2011 calendar should help you track down races which are occuring nearby so you can get your entries sorted, get training and then turn up and skin them alive! The map isn't perfect but it will do for now, I'll add a better one when I revamp the site soon.
