Welcome to Cookstown & District Motocross Club Website.
2015 – New Season is fast approaching
The 2015 race season is fast approaching , dates are being set and championships organized . MRA License forms are now available , please see under Club Membership for how to apply for Cookstown Club membership .
So what will 2015 bring …..
This year the Ulster Open Championship will continue as the same format as in 2014 -over 6 rounds with the first round coming to Desertmartin on the 6th April – Easter Monday . We will have the entry forms out about 5 weeks before the event so if everyone can get their entry in a week before the event it ensures everything will run as smooth as possible and programs , signing on sheets etc can be prepared before race day .
Before this championship begins the restructured Quad /Sidecar Championship will have its first round on the 21st March at ‘The Desert’ . This is an adult & junior quad championship as well as the sidecars . No solos championships on this day but a possible support class depending on interest . Will be good to see the junior quads out at this event and the adult quad riders have been exceptional in 2014 so will be good to see them back on track in 2015.
The Youth dates as yet have not been confirmed but as soon as they are the dates colander for Desertmartin will be updated for 2015 with all races listed . In the meantime Saturday the 10th is the first potential practice day on the main track run by the YMSA – keep an eye on the upcoming events section for any changes to this .
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 ‘
Over the winter months we have our practice tracks open , see below for more details .
MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK
Mountainview Motocross Track has now opened for practice days for just over a 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 from 10am 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
