Welcome to NG Roadracing 2014
I write to give you some details of our 2014 season and to invite you to once again be “part of the action”.
Firstly, on my own, all the team at NG, please let me thank you for your assistance in 2013. Over the last few years NG has grown from our original roots on Airfield circuits to become second to none with our range of circuits, venues and entries. This is complimented by our vastly experienced Marshalling/Technical team, whether you follow us to most/all venues or contribute invaluable local knowledge when we visit your favorite circuit, we are proud to have you as part of our “show” - With out your assistance there would be no racing!!!
We visit an unrivalled 8 Venues in 2014
NG - Bits and Pieces
BRANDS HATCH- Our 2013 season kicks off with a visit to the famous Kent circuit. Our NG championship contenders will be keen to gain a decent haul of points and If the last few years are anything to go by, they will have to do so amongst grids occupied by many British Championship “names” getting some early track experience prior to the first round of BSB.
CADWELL PARK- with it’s unique this features this spectacular circuit has become a firm favorite with the NG faithful.
PEMBREY- This venue always provides great racing, and continues to feature strongly in our 2014 calendar. As usual on Saturday evenings we provide you with an evening meal and a “free drink”.
DONINGTON PARK- After a very packed and hectic meeting in 2013, we once again look forward to visiting this iconic venue.
CASTLE COMBE- Perhaps the biggest news for 2014, we have managed to secure a 2 day meeting. with extra sponsorship, and a few interesting features/celebrities. this promises to be one of the highlights of our season, Definitely not one to be missed!
OULTON- One of the hardest circuits to learn, Oulton is vastly popular among our racers, who annually have to “mix it” with the local Oulton “specialists” always a great day.
ANGLESEY- Is arguably one of the best rider circuits in the country, and set right on the North West coast of Wales, it is certainly one of the most picturesque! Once again we have a prime date in August for our week end at Britain’s own “Philip Island”. Great excuse for a long weekend off work!
THRUXTON- NG is proud to be the only club in the country offering bike racing to it’s members at this incredibly fast and exiting circuit.
2012 ACU 250GP BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIP AND NG CUP- Once again we can look forward to the unique spectacle - quarter litre 2-strokes in these exclusively NG run British Championship rounds. To compliment the grid in 2014, we are introducing the pre92 250 GP class. There has already been great interest in this addition, and I am confident we shall once again see full grids of 250’s
GUEST CLASSES Once again, look out for extra classes popping up at selected events.
In 2014 no other club beats us for range of venues or variety of Club Championship Classes, We are proud to continue to offer our racing members the best club championship series when it comes to the variety of top circuits, close racing and club friendly classes.
We need you to be a part of this, helping us to ensure we continue to offer all of our competitors the safest conditions and the slickest of organisations in which to compete.
In 2014 - NG Roadracing will to continue to provide all Marshals and Officials at all of our meetings with
- A Cooked Breakfast each day
- A Snack Pack each day
- A small monetary sum towards your expenses each day.
- A “debrief” drink in the bar on the Saturday evening.(When possible)
- An action packed 20+ championship races a day!
I understand that not every one is available for every meeting, or in a position to travel to all venues, but no matter how many, or how few events you are able to volunteer for, you will be made most welcome by the NG family.
2014 MARSHAL TRAINING
In June, 2013 we held a very successful Marshal Training day at Mallory Park. This ran in parallel to the race weekend. It is hoped to run a similar event during 2014. Please ensure you indicate on the availability form your last training date. All new Marshals and those who are 3 years or more out of training, will be notified if/when a date/venue is known.
NEW MARSHALS NEEDED
As NG Roadracing grows, the need for more Marshals increases. Many of us started our Marshalling careers by being introduced by a friend already marshalling. So I ask you to look around and think if there are any folk you could introduce to the sport. They will be sure to thank you for it, once they too discover that marshalling is what weekends were invented for.
If you would like to be involved, please download and complete the AVAILABILITY FORM and return to me ASAP
Ensure your details are written clearly, especially your post code & email address where available
As usual, your passes will then be sent to you a week or so prior to the date of each event you have volunteered for. Please keep this letter safe as it contains all of our dates. Contact me during the season with any changes to your availability. I look forward to seeing you track side soon If you would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
How Do I Become A Road Race Marshal?
IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO A ROAD RACE MEETING OR SEEN ONE ON TV YOU WILL HAVE SEEN THE MARSHALS, EITHER REMOVING FALLEN BIKES AND RIDERS OR GIVING FLAG SIGNALS TO THOSE WHO ARE RACING.
WHO ARE THEY? - All Marshals have one thing in common, their interest in motorcycle racing, and they all want to be more involved than just spectating. Apart from this shared interest they can and do come from all walks of life, all ages over 18, and of course both sexes.
HOW MUCH TIME DO THEY GIVE? - A Marshal is required to be on duty for the whole of practice and racing. They also attend a training day each year.
ADVANTAGES OF BEING A MARSHAL
· Working with like-minded people. Shared interest.
· Close involvement with the action.
· Free admission to meetings.
· Satisfaction of doing a job critical to making racing safer.
Marshals are vital. Race meetings cannot take place without them .
HOW DO I BECOME A MARSHAL, AND WHAT WILL BE EXPECTED OF ME? - Organisers of race meetings are always happy to welcome and train new Marshals, most people start Marshalling with organisations such as ours that are local to where they live, and if they wish, may go on to also Marshal at top British National and International events. It is completely up to the individual as to how many meetings a year they attend. The only commitment required is that they turn up to those meetings for which they have volunteered.
