The latest news from the NETT racing series.

Update of Information for Preston Docks

Preston Docks MX have advised that in the interests of safety, ordinarily have a very strict ride in the paddock go home policy, which is in force during the event, where anybody found riding anywhere else apart from the designated track will be asked to leave. Riding in the paddock is ordinarily forbidden. Preston Docks do however understand Quads and Sidecars are less easy to get to the gate for scheduled races and so will accept some relaxation, subject to strict adherence to:

  1. Machines moving under power in the paddock only by riders entered for that scheduled race.
  2. Walking pace only. 
  3. Lanyards attached to rider at all times.
  4. Helmets on, fastened.
  5. No lifts

The safety of all people attending an event is paramount and this regulation will be strictly enforced by the NETT Club and also the track owner. Please don't take a chance, understand the rule and follow it.

ACU rules - With the exception of the 50s and 100s class, no one except RIDERS and OFFICIALS shall be permitted to the area of the starting gate. Riders are allowed to groom the area behind the start gate only, provided no tools are used or outside assistance provided.

Where a parent/guardian intends to accompany a rider in the 50s/100s class, they must be signed on first and wear a hi-viz bib at all times on the starting gate. Failure to observe this ACU rule may render the rider disqualified from that race at the discretion of the Clerk of the Course.

Important Info for Preston Docks

Full address for event is: Preston Docks MX, Wallend Road, Preston, Lancs, PR2 2HW.

Gates/entry to track - Please be aware that the gates will not open until around 5pm on Friday 28th June. They will be locked at 11pm both Friday and Saturday evening, opening around 7am Saturday and Sunday morning. There will be ample run off area to park if you arrive when the gates are locked.

With only a week to go to the first round of the NETT season, if you wish to ride please can you submit your entry by Thursday evening to avoid being charged the £10 late entry fee.  You can do your entry and membership on the ACU website all in one go.   Alternatively you can download forms from the NETT website and submit to Dot at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

Also, although we try our best to guess the number of children that may be racing, we cannot always guess correctly.  To avoid the disappointment on a child's face, please enter asap.  Any later and we cannot get the trophies engraved in time.  

A reminder - anyone who won a Brian Winrow trophy last year, please can you bring it with you to Wooley or if you are not coming arrange to have it sent back so that it can be given out at wooley next weekend. 

MARSHALS - we currently have 5 for Saturday and 6 for Sunday. We have put messages out to the local cadet forces in an effort to find more volunteers.  We need 15 per day to meet requirements to allow riders to race in safety. If you can help please contact Jo Best on 07910 243788.
