We changed our minds on the opening time as a number of riders advised they struggle with online access during office hours.

You will be able to book up to the first four meetings. Those of you who do the first three meetings will be emailed by the system later and have a 2-day opportunity to book the fifth meeting at Donington before any other riders. This will ensure that riders who are focusing on their championships will be able to book in advance of any other rider looking to do a future meeting as a one off.

Mallory Park testing tomorrow (7th Feb 2018) has been cancelled due to the forecast weather. 

The circuit will run sidecars on the 28th February in the afternoon as is their usual setup, as long as they have 7 signed up. 

So far (6th Feb about lunchtime) that number is at 3 confirmed, so we have a good chance of getting 7 signed up by the 28th February. 

Did I get the 28th February in this article enough times yet for people to notice?!

See this page here on their website here, and  be sure to book before the date, which is?
