The meeting, on Good Friday March 29th will see all the normal modern classes from Inters to Experts with the addition of the ever popular “Old Friends” race and for the second year running an Evo & Twinshock class.

In addition this year there will be a vets class for riders over 40. For licence holders enter online or with clubs as normal, however should you wish to dust off the older machinery and switch to Evo/Twinshock or Vets then please contact the office of the event secretary.
