2016 Hampshire Motocross Champions
Congratulations to all our 2016 champions.
| Quad Main
No problems to report on, apart from we incurred a fair few accidents, we all wish those riders involved a speedy recovery. Many thanks to all those involved in running the event, once again the Baron and his crew excelled themselves with the entertainment the other side of the rope. The commentary team for their fine banter, they have requested next time could we move the commentary box in the bar !! Had to have a laugh at the rookie class, with mums and dads holding umbrella’s on the start line for the riders. Still they were top entertainment. Well done to the water boys, as without the huge amount of water put down on the track the meeting wouldn’t have run. Yes that was Simon from the Grittenham track who was driving one of the tractors, and yes he did drive his tractor down and back to Grittenham. Thanks to our new Clerk of the Courses, Bob Hewson and Barry New. Thanks to Geoff and all the Marshals and Officials, I thought Geoff looked dashing in his new radio headset. All the people who helped before, during and after the event. To M&S Ambulance services who had a busy day. To all the companies and people who support this event. And finally to Steve Dixon and Peveril Bruce for all their help and understanding.
So what happens now......
We will be shortly be holding a AGM. This is your chance to have some input into the club. Date and Venue will follow shortly. We plan to have a major shake up of the club, not only in officials but in the way the club runs events. More on this will follow. At some point we will hold an awards evening but this is a couple months away yet.
We are also looking at holding a one off meeting in October time, we will be working along side ‘Race result’ as by then a huge upgrade should be ready for our system with the new ‘Active Motor Transponder’. We are working on a deal for a free upgrade to all riders who have one of our transponders to the new one. More on this later.
Don’t believe what you read on facebook and alike,
MARSHAL CLUB. Geoff is back at the helm again this year with the successful Marshal Club. There are many benefits being part of the Marshal Club, if you wish to join then please contact Geoff via email firstname.lastname@example.org
By joining doesn't mean you have to marshal at every event , but we can never have enough members. As without our Marshalling Club racing won't happen.
MEMBERSHIP. Membership is steady coming in, already had a fair few new faces, so we welcome them. If you haven't re-joined yet and wish to please do it now, forms are on the web site.
MCF LICENCE. Those who have renewed your licence with the MCF would have noticed a fairly hefty price rise with cheapest licence now at £67.50, but all licences now come with personal accident insurance, which is no bad thing. I fully support MCF in this move, and you too should also see the benefit. Please visit the MCF web site, I know insurance isn't the most interesting subject, but you never know what's round the corner.
