As the weather improves (probably said that too early…), more and more of us are dusting off our trusty steeds.
A number of the OMCC events are live, and a busy season beckons. The first of our Major events, the April Airfield Riding Day is only a few weeks away. There are still a few spaces left in the Experienced group and 1 space remaining in the Novice group. For those coming along, I stress the need for you to read the following:
If you don’t, you risk missing key information. Notably, please don’t arrive early as it has the potential to cause a road accident, and remember to bring your driving licence as you’ll need it to book onto the event. All of the above information can be accessed via the menu above . It has the makings of an excellent day as per usual. Spectators are allowed, but please make sure that they are booked in on the forum. We’re also always looking for Marshals. Full training will be given and it’s a great way to get close to the action. Again, please post on the forum if you are interested.
Another key event for the Club is the 1st British Superbike round at Brands Hatch on the 21st April. After last year’s superb season, this year has a lot of promise. Vines BMW of Guildford are very kindly supplying 20 hospitality tickets for the event at a much discounted rate of £40 (should be £95). The first 6 people who booked have also got the use of a demo bike for the day 9 (these have already gone…). Booking for the tickets is via the normal route. There are still a number of tickets available, so don’t miss out, or buy a ticket via the normal route at the higher price…. The aim will be to be to ride from Vines (accompanying the 6 lucky demo riders) as a group to/from the event. If you’ve missed this one or can’t make it, keep an eye on the Forum as it will hopefully be repeated.
As we focus towards the road-riding/racing, don’t forget the Offroad stuff. The new site at Bagshot will be open for use for the first time on the 11th May. There are still places available to either use your own bike, or hire one of the Club bikes (with inclusive instruction). It’s an excellent site, with lot of hills and enough challenges to keep all offroad riders interested and challenged. We’ll be aiming to alternate Bagshot with Bordon on a monthly basis, as Bordon remains an excellent area. As we are resting the team over summer, the next OffRoad event after May will be September, so don’t miss out the last Offroad event before the good weather makes it all a bit too dry and dusty (said the hopeful road rider….).….
If none of these float your boat (for those who live in the West Country), there are other events on the forum, all of which are well worth having a look at.
All for now….back soon!
