Presentation Eve / Horse Race Night & Weald Non Expert Trial – Off

Inevitably, the club has had to cancel both Aprils March Weald Non Expert trial, Clay Hill on the 19th of April and the Annual Presentation and Horse Race Evening that was to be held in late May. We await to see whether the clubs June EKTC Combine Trial will go ahead at Rakins. We do hope riders, observers, friends and families stay safe and well in these difficult times.

ACU Update – Covid 19 – Events off until 31/5 currently

ACU Update – COVID-19 – 6/4

Last week the ACU LTD Board of Directors met virtually for over six hours to discuss the way forward for British motorcycle sport.

These are unprecedented times and the ACU stands fully behind the NHS and essential workers in the national fightback against COVID-19. 

With the current suspension of motorcycle events until 31st May, backed by MCRCB and MSUK the ACU continue to work hard to ensure once the Government’s social distancing advice is lifted members can get back on their motorcycles. We would ask all members to be patient during this period, and respect that our ACU staff are trying to continue providing a high-level of service to Clubs, Centres and Promoters in an increasingly challenging environment. 

We would ask members to continue being responsible and not ride their motorcycles and risk an unnecessary burden on the NHS. 

Thank you

ACU Directors

Youth Series – 2019 championship results

Following the last event of the championship on Saturday the final championship results have been calculated and can be found attached.

Well done to all the class award winners and to everyone that took part. The presentation of theses awards will be at our Presentation night which will be held early in the new year. All are welcome to come along and details of the event will be made available shortly.

As this is now the end of this series on behalf of the club I would like to say how much everyone has appreciated the work and effort that Mike Nutbrown and Tim Taylor has put in the run this series for the last few years when youth only events were scarce, due to the increasing popularity of the sport and the amount of events the youth only clubs are now running the forum that we provided is no longer necessary.  Needless to say that all our events are open to youth riders so please feel free to come along and ride in the future. 

Well done guys and enjoy your well earned rest.
