BUG JAM 26 is a three-day long VW festival taking place at the Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire on 20-22 July.
Some 40 people will be involved in demonstration events, and 12 championship contenders are expected to take part.
Athletes tackle six disciplines with an axe and a saw to chop through wood blocks in around 20 seconds, hop up a 2.5 metre high ‘tree’ to chop the top off, and then race high-performance chainsaws.
STIHL GB marketing manager Sean Larter-Conway said: "As with many outdoor events this summer, the Game Fair fell victim to the weather, and despite their very best endeavours the CLA were forced to cancel the show for only the second time in its 54 year history.
"This can not have been an easy decision for the organisers and was obviously a great disappointment to the many exhibitors, trade stands and around 150,000 visitors expected to attend. We too were very much looking forward to adding our British Championship event to the many attractions at the show. However, we determined to continue with our Championship plans and to give the public an opportunity to see top lumberjack sports action."
BUG JAM 26 is a three-day long combined music and VW motor enthusiasts’ festival, which regularly attracts around 35,000 fans and festival-goers. See www.bugjam.com
