Carrickfergus & District Motorcycle Club are delighted to be in a position to announce details of our first Grasstrack of the season, much later than previously planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The club will be hosting a Grasstrack for both Adult & Youth competitors on Saturday 3rd October at a brand new venue at Carneal Road, Larne, BT40 3LU.
As we are very much still in a pandemic situation, the event will be held in line with strict COVID-19 regulations which has meant that we must limit entries for each class in order to control the numbers of competitors attending the event. To allow us to manage this, we are requiring competitors to pre-enter the event online at www.carrickfergusmcc.co.uk/enter-online ahead of an entry closing date of Friday 2nd October at 1pm. Entries for a particular class may close sooner than this date however if the class reached capacity so please bare this in mind.
The entry fee for each class is £25, except in the case of the 50cc Automatic class which is just £15. day licences are priced at £10 as normal. There will be no gate admission charge for this event to avoid cash handling on the day and payments for race entries and day licences will both be taken online to help with this too.
The plan for race day is that each class will get a minimum of 1 Practice & 3 Races with points being awarded for each race to determine trophy winners at the end of the day. We plan to run more races if time permits and the classes will be as follows:
- 50cc Automatics (Reduced Entry Fee)
- 65cc / Small Wheel 85cc
- Big Wheel 85cc / Senior
- Youth Minibikes
- Premier Open / Semi Expert Open
- Clubman MX1
- Clubman MX2
- Veteran Open (40 years old & over)
- Ladies Open
- Adult Minibike
We are excited to be back racing in 2020 and hope to put on a great day for the competitors attending but are conscious that we need everyone’s cooperation to ensure everyone stays safe. When you enter the event successfully online, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to your supplied e-mail address which will contain our COVID-19 Regulations for the event along with a ‘MRA COVID-19 Track & Trace Form’ that must be completed and brought to the event.
Please spread the word and if you like the sound of going racing again, make sure you don’t miss out and get your entry in online now!
Yours in sport,
