Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club are delighted to finally be in a position to announce that we will be hosting this seasons grasstrack events at a brand new venue situated just outside Ballyclare on the main Templepatrick Road.
After confirming dates for adult and youth grasstrack events at the beginning of 2015, the club has been working tirelessly to source a venue with no luck but just in the nick of time, the site at Ballyclare was agreed as Club Chairman, Peter Denney explains, "We have been to speak to plenty of landowners and to be quite honest, we were almost out of time with less than 6 weeks now remaining until the opening event. We are relieved to be able to initiate the planning process at Mondays Club Meeting and I think this will be a super facility for grasstrack."
The venue will be known as the Six Mile Water Grasstrack, taking its name after the river that runs right along the lower section of the field. The ground is undulating and will lend itself to an exciting and interesting circuit layout while the raised paddock and proposed viewing areas should provide some excellent coverage for spectators attending the events.
Saturday 9th May will be the first event at Six Mile Water and there will be both Adult & Youth classes incorperated in the day. The club anticipate that things will start to move quickly in terms of entry forms / online entry becoming available and full event format announcements so keep an eye on the official website in the coming days for further information.
