Carrickfergus and District Motorcycle Club can now confirm that it will be promoting a full schedule of off road events in 2015 with the first date being an adult and youth grasstrack venture, pencilled in for May 9th. The club had been holding off an announcement until a venue was sourced for the grasstracks but with work still ongoing on that front, it was thought best to let everyone know the season plans now.
2014 was a very positive year for CDMCC and the aim for this season is to build on the successes and improve the already popular Grasstrack and EnduroCross events. Although personnel is still relatively minimal at the club core like many clubs, there is a fantastic mix of youth and experience around CDMCC that want to promote events to a high standard.
Grasstracks have always been our forte with it being an excellent place for those new to the sport to begin racing so naturally, this makes up the bulk of our plans. In 2015 there will be a 3 round grasstrack championship for the youth competitors while the adults will also have 2 grasstrack events, an increase from 2014. The season will again be rounded off with the spectacular Super EnduroCross at The Dalriada Festival in Glenarm after recent confirmation from the festival promotors.
An exciting season of racing lies ahead, all that’s missing is a venue for the grasstracks. If anyone knows someone who may have land available the club would urge them to get in contact as soon as possible. Any further updates on upcoming events will be posted on the recently revamped Carrickfergus Club website www.carrickfergusmcc.co.uk be sure to check it out in the meantime.
