Welcome to Cookstown & District Motocross Club Website.

Look Back at 2017

As racing at Desertmartin is nearly over for the 2017 season we look back at the events in previous months.

It's been a busy year for the Cookstown Club with the Thor British Youth Championship taking place back in May and the Maxxis British Adult Championship in June and indeed we also had the track rented to the North Armagh Club for the 1st Round of the British Sidecross/Quad Championship on the 1st April. So with three British Championships, Youth and Adult Ulster & Irish Championship rounds and an Ulster/Irish Quad & Sidecross Championship there certainly has been no spare time.

All the races went very well and we are indebted to everyone who helped out in any way in running these events and to all the riders who turned up to each competition.

The club would also like to extend congratulations to our Northern Ireland Rider, Graeme Irwin, who now holds the title of 'Maxxis British MX1 Champion 2017'. A brilliant achievement and we are proud that he got to show his talent to all his home supporters at Round 5 in Desertmartin earlier this year. Martin Barr also proved how good he was at that particular round as well when he took the Overall winner of the day in the MX2 Class.

Without our sponsors / supporters we would find it difficult to bring events such as the British Championships over to our track at Desertmartin, so we are extremely gratefully to the following companies for their continued support in 2017:

W J Scarlett & Son, Merchants, Ballyclare
NI Trucks, Mallusk
Bannside Pallets & Haulage, Banbridge

Club membership form for 2017 now available, and as many of you know to get an MRA license form for the race season the rider must be a member of an affiliated MRA club.
More details for 2017 will be displayed in the comings weeks.

MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK

Mountainview Motocross Track has now been opened for practice days for the past four years and so far the feed back has been very good. It's only half a mile from our main track and is a sand based track suitable for riding in all weather.

We have also set up a practice track at 'The Desert' which is out in the back section of the track. It is used on set days as we alternate between tracks.

Both tracks run under controlled timed session and groups are grade according to ability ie grade A riders will not ride out with Grade c , youth will ride separate from adults and quads will not be out with solos etc., this way we keep safe practice and everyone gets loads of safe practice time . Flag marshals and first aid trained staff are always there.

The 'Back Practice' track will only be open for week day practice providing riders are booked in and is open for all bikes quads, sidecars, solos contact 07927 990313 before 9.00pm the previous night.

Mountainview will be open most Saturdays (weather permitting), follow us on Facebook to see what is happening each week or text 07731438170 or email marlene.sykes631@btinternet.com for updates.
