The races will take place at the Stourport circuit on 20th, 27th January and 3rd, 10th Feb 2018 from 11am until 3pm. It’s a great venue with proper car parking, hot showers and clean changing rooms, a nice modern club house right next to the circuit and a warm welcome.
Like last year, signing on will take place in The Mamil Annexe. This is a separate building to the right of the main club house and it means the bar doesn’t become overrun when we mix it with the hockey players. All the club house facilities will still be available it just means we’ll all have a bit more elbow room to fight over licences, gear checking and whether you’ve finished 38th or 39th.
Whilst we’re banging on, the Sport club has asked us to reinforce the request that you don’t use the car park or the access road to warm up on. There is a paved area around the Mamil Annexe for rollers and turbos. Similarly, riders warming up behind their parked cars gives the club management the willies so if you could avoid that too please. If you absolutely, positively, must have a ‘real’ ride as a warm up, you’ll need to use the public road. Not something we’d recommend but we don’t want anybody reversed over by a car when they’re a Z5 in the car park.
The format will be as the last two years (people seem to like it!). This means an E1234 women only race, u14/u16 girls and boys race, a Cat E123 men’s race and a 4th Cat only race at the end.
We will have electronic timing chips as per last year.
We’re looking for a couple of marshals too – we can cover your expenses plus a bit so let us know if you’re interested in any or all of the events.
See you there. Bring your ‘big’ coat…
