Wooley Grange Entries 15th and 16th September
Countdown is on for Wooley Grange, less than two weeks to go! Please enter via the ACU website or for manual entries by calling 07756 948960.
15TH AND 16TH SEPTEMBER 2018 - WOOLEY GRANGE (Please note change of venue!)
Firstly, due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to change the venue of the NETT Quad Championship event on the 15th and 16th September (the date remains unchanged). This will now take place at Wooley Grange instead of the planned PJMX.
Entries - entries are open and the permit number for this is ACU5325. If you wish to do a manual entry then please can you contact Dot on 07756 948960 asap.
Marshals - As always we require Marshals. Please can you try and bring with you/supply a Marshal for this round. We have been particularly lucky at Dean Moor and PJMX as most of the Marshals are brought in by the track owners so I think for the last round it is a small ask. As you know in the past, the small team that we have, have been marshalling as well as the day to day running of the event, which isn’t ideal. To ensure this event runs smoothly, please could you provide marshalling support and book in with Jo Best on 07910 243788.
Macmillan - As many of you will know, Macmillan hold the World's biggest coffee morning. To show our support in this, we have decided to hold a bring and buy cake stall on the Saturday evening at Wooley, sometime shortly after kids presentation. Any funds raised will be sent to Macmillan from the NETT Club. So if you can, bring a cake and drop it off at the signing on trailer on the Saturday morning and return later on and buy one. Bring a beer/coffee along with you and have a little socialise with everyone. Lets hope the weather is kind.
Presentation Night - This year the presentation night will be held on Saturday 17th November at Gilsland Hall Hotel. Tickets are available from Gill Nixon over the Wooley Grange weekend or by calling 01434 683766. Rooms are available by calling the hotel direct and letting them know it is for the NETT Quad event. The hotel number is 01697 747203. Remember, prize money will only be awarded to attendees.
CONNOR SMITH MEMORIAL - DEAN MOOR 4th and 5th August 2018
Sorry its taken so long to post following the weekend, just trying to catch our breath after a busy weekend. We are such a small club with only 3 Committee members that we rely so much on help from volunteers on the day. Its not just a case of turning up on the day and racing, a lot of work goes in before, during and after an event, from booking tracks to emptying bins at the end of the day after everyone has gone home. THANK YOU to all concerned!
All that aside, we had two great days of racing. The weather was kind, the track was in great shape and we managed to run every race. People travelled from far and wide to race with us and we hope we did ok. The racing community is second to none, everyone looks out for one another and are so friendly and the craic is fantastic.
The NETT championship ran Saturday with good entries in all groups making some great racing to watch.
On Sunday there was a few NETT championship classes but the main focus was the British Championship Quads including the British under U21 Championship and the British Sidecarcross Championship.
It was excellent racing with Harry Walker taking first overall in the under 21's, Murray Graham, 2nd overall and Lorne Sinclair 3rd overall.
Again Harry Walker got 1st overall in the British Championship Quads just ahead of Justin Reid 2nd overall and Paul Holmes 3rd overall.
In the Sidecars it was Brett Wilkinson and Dan Chamberlain, taking 1st Overall, with Gary Moulds and Steve Kirwin 2nd, and a very creditable 3rd went to Jake Brown and Zac Snell.
Yours in Sport, the Nett/Iveston and Satley Club
