Marshfield Motocross club are proud to announce their plans for this year’s annual Mike Brown Memorial race meeting, scheduled for bank holiday Good Friday March 29th.Once again we are supporting ’the forever friends appeal’

Bigger and Better than last year!

We have used the feedback from 2012 to tweak and improve all areas.

The racing will follow a similar format to last time, with the Twin shock & Evo ‘Old Friends Race’ topping the bill. Tom Church, Mark Hucklebridge and John May have all entered, ready for the re-match, with both Tom & John this time riding 125’s! They will be joined by a full line up of former top riders including Alan Brown, Mike Church and Nigel Meredith, all keen to show the youngsters how it’s done.

The extra “old school” section of track will make its return but to keep things interesting a different route will be used. The rest of the track will stay mainly as it was with a few improving alterations.

There will be Hole Shot prizes for all classes!  Fastest lap of the day prize for all classes!      15 + amazing raffle prizes. A vastly improved spectator viewing area!  Colerne Sea Scouts will be organising the car parking, so please follow their directions.

There will be three main dealer displays – Bath Ales Beer tent – Bouncy castle – Monster Energy Truck giving away free drinks and merchandise, 3 catering trailers offering a good variety of food, plus 10 other motocross related trade stands.

IMBA Blast Off by Mike Wood

The 2013 IMBA MX1 Championship kicks-off on Easter Sunday with the opening round due to be held at Dunkerque in France. The sand based track, regularly used in Winter months by some of Europe’s top GP stars will prove to be a very tough test for the British lads as they look to bag a big points haul and thus start their 2013 title quest with a big performance.

For 2013 the AMCA Great Britain team will consist of Lee Dunham, Clinton Barrs, Shaun Pearce and newcomer, Lewis Belfield with Eastbourne’s Jackie Mitchell again the manager. Following Sunday’s opener the remaining dates are as follows,

May 12th  Round 2  Czech Republic @ Dalecin
