Racing in the Rain X -Round 3 Tuesday 25th November

After a great response to the plea for volunteers to run the last race.

The third round of the Club's winter series Racing in the Rain X is scheduled for Tuesday 25th November

Gates open at 6.30pm.

Still only £3 to race!

Make sure you register early if you are racing to allow us to get the racing up and running quickly.

Gate practice before racing (if you aren't racing please pay for gates as usual)

Same format as always Formula racing, only two motos followed by a short break before the final.

(Unless the weather is really good and numbers low enough to allow us to run 3 motos)

There will be rider of the night trophy and medals for formula 5.

DUE TO THE DRIVE TO RAISE MONEY TO PAY FOR THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE TRACK THERE WILL BE NO PAYBACK FOR SUPERCLASS DURING THIS RACE SERIES.

Similarly no Dash for Cash unless someone would like to sponsor it?

Volunteers List

As suggested by a Club member there is now a list for volunteers to sign up to help carry out tasks at Club sessions.

The list can be found on the white board in the green container.

There should be 2 lists one showing the names of the volunteers running the session taking place and the other for people to sign up to help the following week.

There is a document along with the lists which outlines what is required for each task.

Any questions regarding how this works or how it could be improved please let us know.

As always any help is much appreciated.

Car Parking Udate

After reaching agreement with the Council that if the Club agreed to pay for all the materials they would instal the car parking and then providing details of the materials and area to be created as a car park, the council have now come back to the Club and said they cannot help us in anyway with this project.

As a consequence the Club is going to contact local groundworks firms for quotations to tarmac the area around the containers and the area used for parking cars at present.

If anyone has any contacts who would be interested in giving the Club a quotation for this work please could they speak to a Club committee member at Tuesday's Club session or contact us via the details on this website.

I'm looking to set up trackside meetings next weekend to discuss details and get the quotes as soon as possible.

Parking-Access to the house next to the track

We understand that parking is difficult at present but please can we ask people not to block the access to the house at the side of the track.

The gentleman who lives there needs to able to get in and out of his house even when the club sessions are in progress.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

Racing In the Rain IX-Round 5-Tuesday 25th February

Round 5 of the Winter series.

Gate open at 6.30pm

Registration from 6.45pm. Racing from 7.15pm.

£3 to race. All equipment available to borrow free of charge.

All Formula 5 riders get medals on the night.Rider of the Night trophy and Dash for Cash.

 

11th Feb CANCELLED!

Unfortunately due to combination of Volunteers being Ill and expected freezing temperatures this evening we feel we are unable to run the session safely this evening. For this reason we are reluctantly having to cancel. Please spread the word!

Track rework

At the Club's annual general meeting at the beginning of December the annual discussion of how the track should be modified took place.

In 2013 the track was completely resurfaced and some modifications were made to the pro straight.

Since the AGM some further work has been done on the track in that the roller at the bottom of the start hill has been removed.

If you are interested in being involved in planning and executing further development of the track please speak to Mr W Fieldhouse and Mr M Ogden trackside and let them have your ideas, opinions and level of willingness to help as soon as possible. The work needs to be planned in before this years busy racing season gets underway in March when no doubt riders attention will start to focus on the World Championships which are being held in Holland this year.

Car Parking

This is always a problem at this time of the year but can we please ask that nobody drives their vehicles over the football pitches.

We work very hard to try and maintain good relations with the park manager. This is not easy when vehicles are driven over the pitches in wet conditions and are left rutted.

It would also be appreciated if the track up to the containers was left clear till the trailer with the bikes and cars of the volunteers who run the sessions have got up to the trackside.

We have got permission to put what we hope will be all weather parking in trackside from the council and we are trying to get work started on this early in the New Year.

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

RC Cars on BMX Track

There has been an issue around RC cars using the BMX track that got a little out of control.  To clarify the situation:

1.  RC cars are allowed to use facilities in Bradford Parks, this includes the BMX track.

2.  Under Bylaw 42(c) if somebody wants to use a facility for its proper purpose, anyone else using it must leave.

I have tried to contact the RC community in a number of ways to discuss the opportunity for them to use the track officially at given times, but they seem uncooperative and generally abusive.  I will persist.  In the mean time if you arrive at the track to ride just politeley ask them to leave.  If they refuse simply phone the park ranger up on 01274 431000 and they will attend as soon as they can.  Let me know of any incidents, but at all times avoid conflict.
