The inventive Benelli SP’AUTO Championships are very much a highlight of the shooting calendar, with many competitors returning year on year.  GMK are pleased to announce that this year’s venue will be Southdown Shooting Ground which is situated in the glorious Wessex countryside.  The ground has benefitted from considerable investment in recent years and deservedly won the accolade of the Nation’s Favourite Shooting Ground for 2017!

The event will be held on Sunday 21st May and is exclusively for semi-automatics, this ground breaking event offers shooters a fresh challenge which will test their powers of concentration!  Once again the course will be comprised of 120 targets over 14 stands.  The SP’AUTO allows full use of the auto’s three shot facility and stands will be presented as either (a) three targets on the call of “pull” or (b) two targets with full use of the gun.  Some targets may be presented as pairs while others will be on report.  Please note that the main SP’Auto Championships can only be shot with a Beretta, Benelli or Franchi semi-automatic shotgun.

At the same time as the Sp’auto we will also feature the inaugural Benelli Sportrap.  The increasingly popular discipline will be shot over 4, 25 target, layouts from five fixed positions.  This competition will not be subject to the same restrictions as the SP’Auto, and will allow the use of any type or make of gun.  A host of excellent prizes will be available.

The Benelli SP’AUTO and Sportrap are innovative and thrilling clay shooting competition that quite simply, you don’t want to miss!  See you at Southdown on the 21st!
