Hi All, we hope you've had a great Christmas and New Year and are staying safe getting ready for the new season.
As the start of the season is approaching you need to get your licences and memberships in order.
This is quick and easy to do via the ACU Website by following the steps set out below. (This is only if you have had an ACU licence before.)
Everything completed on-line saves time on Race Day filling out forms manually. The ACU have all your details on file, it only takes minutes, it's also more cost effective.
- Go to ACU Website
- Go to your rider profile
- Go to Club Membership down left hand side and choose Iveston & Satley. This takes you to the site to pay.
- Go back into your rider profile
- Choose My Licences - View/Renew and follow links.
It knows you have renewed your membership and your licence arrives within a few days.
It's that easy and takes about 10 mins.
We all look forward to seeing you on the track very soon.
Just a short update – the incoming committee has now finalised dates and venues and is just finishing off the British Championship arrangements with the ACU and other clubs (for both Sidecar’s and Quad’s) – we are currently aiming to issue confirmations out to you all within the first week of 2021 and, with the hopeful expectation that vaccination, lockdowns and Tier system rules will all work to give us the necessary permissions to hold race meetings again ASAP in 2021, we look forwards to getting dirty somewhere with you next Spring!
Meanwhile, stay safe, have as a good Christmas as these new rules allow and let’s all hope for a far better New Year ahead of us.
The NETT committee
In order to help members plan their activities (and of course, subject to COVID-19 situation and any restrictions allowing), the NETT committee are pleased to propose the following 2021 Provisional race dates (venues TBC) – subject to confirmation once we have completed checks with ACU and other interested parties
- 24/25 April
- 29/30/31 May
- 26/27 June
- 17/18 July – tentatively British Champs @ Dean Moor
- 4/5 Sept – reserve dates in case of postponed rounds or if a 10-round championship is determined as the format for 2021
The committee will advise more news and further information on the 2021 season as soon as practically possible – we are all itching to get back to doing what we love but unfortunately, the virus and its consequences seem to be determined to hold things up a little more yet. So, in the meantime, be safe, enjoy the extra time to get those bikes and outfits ready and looking good, have as good a festive break as you can in these strange times and we hope to see you all soon as in ’21!
The NETT Committee
2020 has been strange and difficult times, not only in terms of racing, but also life in general. It was always the intention for the current Committee Members to step down at the end of 2020. As we did not run any race meetings and are unable to host an AGM we have been unable to let you know personally.
So, the NETT Club are looking for new custodians to take over the overall running of the Club for 2021. The club operates as a none profit making organisation. It's not a business and any proceeds and assets remain the property of the Club. Everything is purely run on a voluntary basis.
Karl, Ian and Dot have been doing the bulk of running the Club for the last few years With the added help by others on the days of racing.
If you are interested and would like to discuss anything in greater detail, please email either Karl, Ian or Dot on their respective e mail addresses as follows:
Remember, this is your Club, run for the benefit of its members, if you wish to keep it running please come forward.
Ideally the Club will need minimum 3 Committee members but preferably 6 or more. Someone will also need to transport/store the Nett club equipment.
Yours in sport, the current Nett Committee.
26th & 27th September - DUNS
Due to current COVID circumstances, with a heavy heart, the committee have had to make the decision that the meeting at Duns this coming weekend is cancelled.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause but trust that you all understand the current situation and risks involved.
Full refunds will be given and Dot will be in touch with individuals that paid by BACS.
Yours in sport
We are still short of marshals for both Saturday and Sunday.
A huge thank you to those who have already offered.
Despite the “no spectators” regulation where marshalling offers a viable way to spectate - we still need another 5 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday.
As you may have read via ACU updates, the British Sidecars and Quad Championship status has been removed from this event .
However, all the Club’s normal classes will be running and now the NETT sidecars will run 3 races each day instead of 2.
If you have any Brian Winrow Trophies or end of season trophies from last year, please can you return these when you come to the meeting at Duns.
