Maxxis British Championship Back for 2016
It has now officially been confirmed – round 4 of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship will take place at Desertmartin Motocross Track on the 12th June 2016. Stuart Drummond , the Series Manager , from the ACU recently meet with The Cookstown Club and the contract has been signed .
After a two year gap this highly respected championship will return to Northern Ireland giving our home riders the chance to show the home fans how they rate against the best riders in the UK
The work starts now and we at the Cookstown Club will do our best to make this one of the best events in 2016 at Desertmartin and we hope the riders and the supporters back the event with their entries and attendance .
Meeting are still being held regards our local national dates for 2016 . At this point in time I can’t tell you what we will be running as everything is in talks and should be sorted and confirmed over the next few weeks .
So over the winter months, weather permitting , we will keep the practice tracks open – see details below – and we will keep you up to date on all our events for 2016 as soon as we can .
Remember Folks- It doesn’t matter if you are in the top 10 , top 20 or top 40 – set your own goals for the new season and make it your year for improving but most importantly ‘Enjoy your Motocross, and support racing ‘
MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK
Mountainview Motocross Track has now opened for practice days for the past two year and so far the feed back has been very good . Its 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.
Normal days of opening at this stage are Monday to Friday for all bikes – quads , sidecars , solos but riders must book in for week days – contact 07927 990313 before 9.00pm the previous night .
Mountainview will be open most Saturdays (weather permitting ) but may vary from week to week as we try to give everyone maximum track time ie One week all Solos Youth and adult , next week maybe Quads and adult solos or youth might be at the Desert while adults are at Mountainview – follow us on face book to see what is happening each week or text 07731438170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates .
