Stop Press! 2018
The committee are up and raring to
go after their winter hibernation!
Behind the scenes we have been busy
sorting, arranging and organising for our eagerly awaited 2018
championship season and if it is anything like the 2017 season
it will be a classic!
Your committee is here to serve the
best interests of our members and their enjoyment of MX racing.
We have worked to give our members an exciting and varied race
programme this year with new visits to Daventry and Fat Cats
plus returns to Milton Malsor, Chippenham and the traditional
season opener at Mildenhall on the 11th March. We
hope you all enjoy it.
So what’s new for 2018?
As usual all race entries are via Goracemx.com and now
require a £15.00 deposit for entry entered.
Auto race entry has increased to £20.00 (Still great value
Please be aware that the wearing of body armour is now
mandatory for MX racing from 2018 onwards. See armour

Image MX are back again and Colin will be taking some of
his amazing shots (and making us all look good!)
Marshals – Please make every effort to
help provide marshals and help on race day. All we ask is you
put a little bit back into our meetings – it really helps –
without our valued marshals we cannot race!
Start line – Please, please
make an effort to help the start line guys either setting up or
putting away. If 10 people go down and help it only takes 20
mins!!. After racing is done, simply stroll over and offer to
help - it is very much appreciated and makes their day easier.
Medics – Again this year we place
ourselves in the very capable hands of Pulseline who have not
only proved themselves to be the best medics in the business but
have also been brilliant partners in the KSMXC set up
So we all look forward to seeing
everyone on the 11th March and let’s make it a fun
and successful season for all at KSMXC.
Good luck everyone!
