                               Hello all

                               With only 1 more round left in our Club Championship I would like to wish everyone
                               who is contending for trophies the best of luck.

                               Our last round will see the new Social class, this class has been formed to provide
                               riding on the track at race days for both trail riders and Mum‟s or Dad‟s to have a ride
                               on the track without the pressure of racing, there will be no gate starts, a red flag
                               finish and no points awarded. With more classes and more entrants our club will
                               continue to grow and grow and grow…
