We would love to have some riders over to add a new dimension to the race. Emphasis is always on the safety aspect
of the race. Broom wagon all the time to ensure nobody is left out on the circuits etc. Plenty of prizes and real good racing in a pleasant atmosphere.Pick ups from airport or ports could be arranged by us in the club
