All at Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club would like to wish our members and supporters a Happy New Year and despite a number of rumours in the paddock we can tell you that the club is still very much in action and WILL BE promoting a number of events during the coming year!
Personnel is in short supply at clubs around the country, we are no different and the schedule for 2014 reflects this with fewer events planned but we can guarantee you that CDMCC will work twice as hard to make sure they are a success. Our events will cater for both the adult and youth sides of the sport and details of the upcoming fixtures will be released during the month of January so keep an eye on the club's website and social media channels for latest updates.
Take a look at Colin McIlhagger’s image from our brand new EnduroCross event at Glenarm's Dalriada Festival in July last year - bringing the sport to the people - this is the success we will be building on in 2014!
2014 Club Membership - Membership Forms are now available to download on www.carrickfergusmcc.co.uk and all current club members will receive their new forms in the coming week.

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,
