12-4-21 : 2021 Twin Shock Race Season Starts 30th May.
This will come as no surprise to everyone as we announce that we have taken the decision to cancel our race meeting at Kilmartin on May 2nd. Obviously due to the Covid restrictions we were unable to carry out any work on the track & also along with it being so close to the changes in Lockdown & Travel restrictions. Currently we have now lost our first 2 venues Drumclog & Kilmartin, however we are already looking at an alternative date for at least one of these venues so we will keep you informed should factors work for us. Currently, this now leaves us with 7 rounds confirmed for 2021.
Finally we can report some good news & our 2021 Race Season will now officially start at Powmill on May 30th
Powmill 30th May : This meeting will be Closed to current Twin Shock Club Members Only !! Entry is now open for Powmill, the Entry form has been uploaded for you to download from the website www.scottishtwinshock.com ( Remember if you Pay your Entry by Bank Transfer you will still need to complete and bring along on the day / or send in a completed Entry Form ).
Trophies : We are pleased to announce that we will be awarding Trophies to the top 5 Riders in each Class for 2021.
Also, Due to the high number of Riders who have now registered for the Clubman Class, I can confirm that we will be splitting this class into 2. Once confirmed we will let you know. Also please be aware that once the racing starts & if we feel that you are too quick for the Clubman Class you will be moved to another class, you have all been warned.!!
Transponders : Please remember to Activate your Transponder once you have renewed your subscription !! You will need a Transponder should you wish to receive Points / Trophy etc & also to confirm where you finish in each race. No Transponder = No Points, No info !!! You can race without one, No Problem, but we will not be able to give you any info at all on where you finish in the race. Do not wait until the last minute if you plan to purchase one as race day is busy enough without trying to register transponders on the day, so this will not be happening. Please be proactive and let us know in advance.
Power Washers : Unfortunately due to contamination of the Land for animals & crops we have no option but to Ban the use of Power Washers at our meetings. ( Remember No Tear-Off’s also )
Marshalls : Anyone wishing to Marshall please get in touch and lets us know.
Sponsors : A Big & Massive thanks to all our Sponsors who once again have come forward & supported us for 2021, You support is very much appreciated.
Also we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all of You, All Members of the Twin Shock Club for your continued ongoing support and for your kind messages and comments throughout this very difficult time..
