Welcome to NG Roadracing 2017
Over the last few years NG has grown from its 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 favourite circuit, we are proud to have you as part of our “show” - Without your assistance there would be no racing!!!
We visit Eight Venues in 2017
BRANDS HATCH. Our season kicks off with a visit to the famous Kent circuit. Our NG championship contenders will be keen to start their 2017 campaigns with 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 BSB season.
CADWELL PARK With it’s unique 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 2017 calendar. Look out for some special feature races. As usual on Saturday evening we will provide you with an evening meal and a “free drink” at this venue.
CASTLE COMBE Once again for 2017, 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, The only two wheel racing event at Combe! Definitely not one to be missed!
OULTON PARK 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.
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.
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 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!
In 2017 we will continue to offer race members all of their favourite classes, plus new for this season will be the NG SuperMono class, we will also continue to host the Desmo Due Ducati championship and the Formula ProStock championship.
Also look out for various other Guest classes popping up at selected events, these will include rounds of the Lansdowne Classic series, the ACU/FSRA F2 Sidecar Chanpionship & MotoE Electric Bikes,
125 & 250 GP BRITISH ACU CHAMPIONSHIPS, In 2016, from our Donington round, we were very proud to add the 125GP ACU Championship to our programme In 2017 these machines will continue to share the grid with the 250GP machines, giving NG possibly the best 2stroke grids anywhere on earth?
In 2017 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 2017 - 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!
- Extra subsistence will be offered on Test Days.
I understand that not everyone 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 always be made most welcome by the NG family.
Marshal Training 18th March 2017
We are holding Marshal Training this year on the Saturday of our 2 day meeting at Brands Hatch. This is open to all experienced Marshals who have not attended a training day for 3 years or more, and to all those new to Marshalling.
As you will have seen from our calendar, NG are once again offering riders a Friday Test Day at Oulton, Cadwell and Oulton. This worked well in 2016, and I would like to thank in advance anyone who is able to assist on these days.
New Marshalls 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.
Please complete your 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.
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 every three years.
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.
