IT WAS DECIDED TO KEEP THE TEAM CHALLENGE GOING NEXT YEAR AND WE HAVE HAD A FEW MEMBERS COMMITTING A TEAM FOR 2015, SO IT SHOULD BE EXCITING. ANYONE WANTING TO ENTER A TEAM PLEASE DO SO AT YOUR EARLIEST CONVENIENCE .  
IT WAS DECIDED TO ALLOW ANY AIRCOOLED MOTORCYCLE TO RACE IN THE TWINSHOCK CATEGORY AS LONG AS IT HAS , DRUM BRAKES, AND CONVENTIONAL FORKS AND IS AIRCOOLED. WE WILL NOW DELETE THE CUT OFF DATE FROM RULES28 AND 29 .THERE WERE NO OTHER RULE CHANGES.
WE REVIEWED THE 2 STROKE CLASS AND IT WILL NOW BE A PROPER CHAMPIONSHIP.
IT WAS ALSO DECIDED THAT THE COMMITTEE WILL REVIEW THE CLASSES FOR NEXT YEAR AROUND THE END OF FEBRUARY AND ANY CLASS THAT IS NOT WELL SUPPORTED MAY BE NOT RUN IN 2015,I.E. AT LEAST 10 REGISTERED RIDERS PER CLASS. SO IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR CHOSEN CLASS GOING PLEASE JOIN NOW.
 
IT WAS PASSED THAT WE WILL NOW BE USING TRANSPONDERS IN 2015 .THIS WILL BE UNDER THE CONTOL OF YOUR NEW VICE CHAIRMAN JOHN HOPTON, EVERY RIDER WILL NEED TO HAVE A TRANSPONDER IF YOU WANT TO SCORE CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS AND EVERY RIDER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR TRANSPONDER BEING FULLY CHARGED AND IN WORKING ORDER. THE KIND WE WILL BE USING ARE THE MYLAPS SYSTEM, I THINK THEY ARE ORANGE AND THE COST IS £212 EACH. MR HOPTON IS TRYING TO NEGOTIATE A DEAL WITH MYLAPS TO BUY A LOAD AT A REDUCED PRICE, WE WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED ON THE WEBSITE IF AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS.

FULL LICENCE--..£15             DAY LICENCE- £5   LATE ENTRY + £10   ENTRY FEE -£35   .I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT IN 2016 THE LICENCE FEES WILL INCREASE TO FULL LICENCE = £20 AND DAY LICENCE TO £7 . NO BAD AY NO BAD .
 
THE CLUB IS NOW GEARING UP FOR A SUPER 2015 SEASON AND AS NORMAL WE ARE ON THE HUNT FOR SPONSORS WHOM WE OWE MUCH GRATITUDE FOR THEIR FAITH IN US. THE FIRST TO COME FORWARD IS M.X.M. WHO HAVE PLEDGED A FULL 10 PERCENT DISCOUNT TO ALL CLUB MEMBERS IN 2015. ALAN AND IAN DO A GREAT JOB AND ARE ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP OUT WITH YOUR BIKE BLING AND THEY MAKE A MEAN CUP OF COFFEE.
