2016 date is confirmed
Following a 2015 de-brief meeting this week, (14th October) it is confirmed that the 2016 event will take place on the 3rd and 4th September.
We realise that this clashes with the first (of two on consecutive weekends) USA MX Grand Prix's but we still feel we will be able to attract some top Americans to mix it with you guys.
Entries will open on February 1st and details will be published here in December.
The Pre83 125cc and Pre 85/4/S Class will be merged which will allow for a Over 50s Evo class which we have had many request for.
Having looked at the costs of the event which went up considerably this year the entry fee will need to go up by £10, but it was pointed out that it has remained the same for the past three years. Extra toilets will again be added and the organising team will work hard to ensure everyone enjoys a good weekend with quality entertainment apart from the racing.
Look out for a further update in December regarding entries.
One week later
With a week having passed by since the event the whole organising team would like to sincerely thank everyone who sent kind messages regarding the event. It is very much appreciated.
There have been a couple of posts regarding watering on Sunday morning. Actually, this did not take place, although it is correct to say that the main field did receive a fairly light sprinkling on Saturday evening after the racing had finished. The ground at Farleigh Castle dries out so quickly and we wanted to make sure that everyone was not covered in dust for the last block on Sunday afternoon. We have taken on board your comments that "a little dust is better than starting off with a mudbath" which we hope you can appreciate.
Looking forward to the 2016 event, which is likely to take place on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th September in order to miss the scheduled US MX Grand Prix. Entries will again open on the 1st February, but we shall be developing a different system to ensure that no one can enter the wrong class. We will publish details of the system during the month of December on THIS website.
Post event news
Firstly, thanks to all riders, sponsors, teams,security, medics, marshals and helpers for making the event easy to run and we trust that everyone had a good weekend. The weather was kind to us.
Some people have made comments about the quality of the programme which was produced by Johnston Press (TMX and DBR). It was supposed to be a glossy magazine but a mix up with production meant that at noon on Thursday it had not gone to print.The only option was a faster newspaper production which was printed overnight and delivered early on Friday morning. We are sure that the content which was produced by Anthony Sutton and the guys and girls at Morecombe more than made up for the lesser quality paper!.
