Darren Grills in action at Glenarm last year
With just eighteen days to go until the spectacular HTM Off Road EnduroCross returns to Glenarm and The Dalriada Festival, preparations are well underway to make the illustrious event bigger and better than ever before.
A SuperVET class was added to the race schedule last weekend following substantial interest on social media and just one week later, MTA Process Components have been confirmed as the new class sponsor. MTA join headline sponsor HTM Off Road as an event partner and this valued input will be going towards the awards fund.
Those following social media updates will have seen that there will be a number of positive changes to the circuit layout for 2015, geared to encourage more entries from clubman riders. Plans are ongoing to create separate sections of track for the Expert & Clubman classes and when these are implemented, it can only make for closer and more exciting races.
One obstacle that certainly made for some spectacular action shots in 2013 was the Water Splash and the club can confirm its return is planned for this year’s event. The news is certainly great from a spectator’s point of view but for any ‘fair weather’ riders, it might not be so good news!
Entries have been coming in steadily for the event and with the closing date not too far away, riders should head over to www.carrickfergusmcc.co.uk to ensure they book their place on the grid before entries fill.
Pre-event build up will continue across the club’s official social media channels in the coming weeks and with an on-site planning meeting scheduled for Wednesday evening, further updates are expected before the July break, stay tuned!
