New to racing? If you've never raced with us, don't worry- you are very welcome to come along and try things out. We have a Sport category that's a good introduction. If you're not a member you can enter up to 2 races for £5 on the day (which includes insurance). If you want to continue racing you'll have to join the club, but this is now a reduced fee of £20 for the remainder of the season.

A timing chip is a further £5 if you want your race to count/ be recorded (this not a requirement to take part). The course usually opens at least 30 mins prior to the first race so you can evaluate the course.Any queries- drop me a line.
