THE FOLKS AT NORMAN WATT MOTORCYCLES HAVE SENT US THIS INFO REGARDING THEIR UPCOMING TEST DAY AT TINKER HILL LATER THIS MONTH FOR THOSE INTERESTED. MAKE SURE YOU SPREAD THE WORD!
We are going to be running a 2014 KTM Enduro test day at Tinker Hill Newry on Thursday 26th September. It will entail a full day during which you can bring bike/bikes of your own to ride around the marked out cross country track and a guaranteed 2x 20minute rides on 2 of the 2014 bikes of your choice, numbers dependant you may get 3 rides but at this point its only a certain 2. The bikes they are bringing are all 2014 models and will be 125 EXC, 250 EXC, 300 EXC, 250 EXC-F, 350 EXC-F and 450 EXC-F. They are not bringing the 200 or 500 models!!
The cost of the day will be £40, hopefully numbers dependant again we will have a chip van there etc. for early morning snacks and midday race fuel!!
As you can appreciate one of each model reuslts in just 12 slots per cc of bike so if it is something you want to attend then we need payment up front and your choice of bikes pretty much asap as the likes of the 300 EXC places are almost all taken already.

OFFICIAL CLUB STATEMENT - SUNDAY 18TH AUGUST 2013
It is with great regret that The Carrickfergus and District Motorcycle Club has decided to cancel the 2 Day race at Desertmartin on August 23rd and 24th. The reason is that we have received only a third of the number of entries required for us to run the event without losing money. We cannot put the future of The Club at risk by running an event at a substantial loss.
I would like to apologise to all the riders who have entered, you will be refunded. I would also like to thank all the sponsors and organisations who had agreed to support the event in some way.
We remain an energised and innovative club dedicated to the sport of off-road motorcycle racing and we won't allow a setback to dampen our enthusiasm. Please see our website for updates on future events.
Yours in Sport,

Just two weeks now remain until entries are set to close for the Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club promoted, annual Two Day Motocross event at Desertmartin. The popular weekend event will be held on Friday 23rd & Saturday 24th August and C&DMCC have confirmed that the back loop at Desertmartin will be open both days for racing. This gives the local men a rare chance to experience the former grand prix circuit in its entirety.
The classes remain the same as 2012 for this year’s event with classes for Premier, Semi Expert & Clubman Solo Competitors while Premier and Clubman Quad Competitors are also catered for in the schedule. Each class will get one practice/qualifying session starting Friday morning followed by five races spread over the course of Friday & Saturday. Trophies will be awarded to the top six finishers in each class overall at the close of racing on Saturday evening and a prize fund will be confirmed closer to the time.
Aside from the racing, plans are in place to have a marquee on site for some tunes and banter in the paddock on Friday evening along with the traditional tyre lifting contest for those still feeling strong after day one!
As this is a two day event, the club is currently only taking entries for the two days of racing and the entry fee is £55 + £5 Admission on the gate. £5 of this entry fee will go straight to the Cash for Kids Charity which the event is supporting for the second year running. Entry forms are available in motocross shops across the country while forms are available to download on www.carrickfergusmcc.co.uk/enteranevent, where an online entry system is also running for those that wish to take the easier option and use PayPal. Pre entry is required to make sure you don’t miss out, get your entry to us ASAP and if you have any further questions e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to us on facebook / twitter.
The club is also currently looking to bring sponsors on board for this event where packages range from just £50 for a programme advert right up to £300 for a class sponsorship. If you are interested in sponsoring this event then get in touch with the club now and we can get you full details of the event and sponsorship packages available.
As always, for the latest and most up to date info on the 2013 Two Day Motocross, keep an eye the Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club website and social media accounts.
