As most of you know at the end of last season we experimented with a
new system for marshals.
Where the rider puts £5 into the marshal pot at every round (£10 for
two day meetings) or provides a marshal or worker for 1/2 a day.
Marshals/Workers are paid £25 half day or £50 full day
It was agreed at the AGM we would carry on with is system for 2019
If anybody is found to be smoking or taking any illegal substances
at our meetings you will be asked to leave straight away & have a
life time ban

This is a schoolboy club and we will NOT tolerate it
Compass Cup 2018
The club owes a massive thanks to all the people who organised the
KSMXC Compass Cup squad. The
really made their presence known in the paddock and also made some
(a lot!) of noise at
The KSMXC riders rode their hearts out for the club all weekend,
even when it chucked it down with rain, and they were an absolute
credit to our club. Both riders and crew looked super in their KSMXC
hoodies and race shirts.
This brilliant “feel good” event will return in 2019 and we will
take back what is rightly ours!!
Just a few pointers to help ease you into 2019.
After a frustrating 2018 KSMXC season (race cancellations, track
issues, etc) we move on into 2019 and hope we fair better this year.
Firstly the KSMXC committee would like to extend our huge thanks and
appreciation for all the people who have helped make our club what
Race day officials
– you all know who you are! – the start gate team, Chief
marshall(s), scrutineers, lap scorers, race timing, peg bag,
transponder check and general start/pit area help. Without you guys
we could not run and we really appreciate your assistance – Thank
Big up to Pulseline who look after us when we don’t get it quite
right during racing. Last season they were called upon to attend
some scary incidents and they delivered every time. They provide us
with a fantastic professional service, above and beyond the call of
duty, and inspire response confidence when we sometimes “over
commit” ourselves on our bikes.
The life blood of our circuit safety and another vital part of our
race day set up. KSMXC extend our huge thanks to all those who have
stood in the rain, wind or the sunshine, or all three! waving the
flags to keep our riders safe.
If a yellow flag is shown take care there is an obstruction
somewhere in front of you
– no overtaking!!
If the yellow flag is being waved there is a
or obstruction in front of you
– slow down and be prepared to stop! – No overtaking!!
If a red flag is shown then the
race is over
or has been stopped
– STOP to where you have seen the RED flag, watch for instructions
from officials to make your way slowly back to the finish line/track
Any rider seen disregarding our safety flags will incur a penalty
Riders (and parents)

KSMXC Top Tips to help your/our race day go smoothly!
– Riders - you know the rules! Please make scrutineering and lap
scoring a much happier place by ensuring you have the
correct and legible numbers
on your race mount. Please do not present your machine to our
wonderful scrutineers without numbers present.
Also keep your front/side plates clean during the day – it really
helps the lap scorers
Ensure your helmets are presented with the correct sticker on them
that ensures they are eligible for an ACU sanctioned event. An ACU
gold sticker will do the job nicely.
What are these I hear you say! These regulations are published by
the club for each meeting and contain all the local rules that the
club needs in addition to the ACU MX regulations for our events. We
will endeavour to place them onto the
website so as they can be viewed. Please take time to browse through
them as you do sign up to abide by them!
Start Line –
The start line rules are exactly the same as last season – please
read them and abide by them – it makes our day sooo much easier. The
start line is part of the track (Oh yes it is!) and the only persons
present on the line should be
competitors and signed on officials
– this is for safety reasons and insurance purposes. The start line
crew are there to ensure the start area is safe – please listen to
their reasonable instruction and comply –try not to argue the point
– it only makes things worse and holds up the racing.
No –one is permitted in front of the start gate (Except Auto
helpers). No “gardening”
Kids – Do not stand in an empty start gate to “reserve” it – you
will be told to vacate the gate.
Pick a peg and wait your turn – this makes it fair for everyone
Assistants may come and set start devices of course but should do so
quickly and then vacate the start line immediately.
We will cut people some slack if it is raining or very hot so the
riders have some shelter/drinks but the line MUST be cleared
immediately when instruction is given to do so.
Please ensure your transponders are both fully charged and are valid
(working). A quick charge in the van on the way to the meeting will
not suffice. Charge them up the day before you leave. If your
transponder does not function you may not be scored in that race.
Pit Etiquette 1–
Please ensure you clear
your rubbish and litter up at the end of the day and if you have a
dog then you
clear up after it when it has done a No 2.
Pit Etiquette 2 –
Strictly, absolutely, never, nil, don’t even think about it,
NO riding in the pit area – push your bike with a dead engine. We
have persons of all ages running around and we would hate to see
someone get clipped by a bike. For safety reasons this will be
Pit Etiquette 3 –
Our meetings are full of young impressionable persons (that does not
include the committee!). Please behave in a manner that will not
offend our young competitors.
Meeting Etiquette –
Please make every effort be pleasant to our race day officials –
their day is difficult enough anyway with up to 200 riders to look
after and always remember they are volunteering
their valuable time freely
so as you can race your bike. Thank them - as without them we would
have no racing.
See you all at Mildenhall for Round 1 on March 10th
Circuit is open for Practice on Saturday
Take care and be good
