We’re very excited to be welcoming you to our next double header at Ironworks, a challenging track that is new to the NETT calendar. Delighted too to see such a strong entry - if you’ve not yet entered, please make sure you do so before 6pm tonight – it really helps our Stu get his paperwork in order and avoids you paying a late entry penalty.
GETTING THERE – there are a couple of postcodes in circulation – this is the closest one - TS6 6XH
ON ARRIVAL – the paddock is beyond the speedway area.Please be aware there’s a speedway meeting on Friday evening which means getting through to our paddock may be a bit busy on arrival. But they will be gone by the end of the evening.
LATE ARRIVALS - Gates to the paddock will be closed and locked at 11.30pm. If you arrive later than that, please park in the Speedway parking area until morning.

At the start of practice, there will be a transponder check lap - please space out going over the finish line so our timing team can pick up your transponder and number board and match your name to your transponder.
***NEW*** GATE PICK – Current Championship POINTS will determine gate pick order this weekend. For the youth and adult classes which run together in groups, the order will be defined by the number of championship points in the group, not the individual class. Riders without any championship points will be called to the line after the championship placed riders according to their start number. The Start Marshal retains the right to move a bike to another position on the start gate in the interests of safety.
The gate position you are given for the first race remains the same all WEEKEND. Please remember your start position as the pre-start area may not be manned all the time.
Please be at pre-start area in good time, as riders may be called to the start line when the race before yours is only half over.
RESULTS – results will be posted on the results board at the sign-on hut after each race. Please check your results after EACH race, particularly RACE 1, and be sure to raise any query you have well before the start of your next race.
PRIZEGIVINGS – Youth awards will be presented at the end of each raceday, time permitting.
CATERING - on site catering will be available throughout the weekend.
LITTER - please bring your own black bags and take your litter home. Please be prepared to clear up around you and check you have not left any litter when you depart.
LOOS – we have been asked to remind you to tidy up after yourselves when in the portaloos and to avoid emptying chemical toilets in them – there will be an IBC in place for this purpose, please use it.
RESPECT VENUE RULES – please remember, no campfire, no pit bikes, no noise late at night – this help us maintain the good relationship we have with the tracks we hire, so we are always welcomed back.
COVID 19 continues to be front of mind and although many restrictions have been lifted, we ask that everyone continues to take care and respect those around you. Please be aware that all competitors and their associates are responsible for abiding by and self-policing social distancing protocols.
Wishing everyone a good and safe weekend. See you there!
