Any news on dates and locations for 2018, including whether the "Worlds" will be BHPC  point scoring?

cheers

Is there any information on the Yarborough/Lincoln circuit? We went to a circuit near there many years ago. Not good. The pic on Google Maps looks the same.

Seems Yarborough is the one I remember. I asked Nick if he did. He said  Yes I do, unnecessarily sharp corners, poor surface and needed the stuff falling off the trees clearing away.”. My memory is the moss growing on the corners. From Google Maps it does not appear to have changed, which may be why there are no details of the circuit available. Disappointing. Shawn and I were talking about doing Scunthorpe to see how fast Notso can go, but I don't think it is worth going to Yarborough.

Was that the track where kids were riding mini quad bikes all over the place and there was a football match going on in the middle of the track? There was a very green, mossy patch under one of the trees that was slippery - The other thing I remember about it was that it was Lee Wakefield's first race (on a KMX trike)... I had a very close race with him on my Kingcycle.

We did discuss if the Worlds counted for points. Can't remember for sure what the conclusion was. My vote is not. There will be a lot of one time competitors to list and the classes are slightly different.

Correct - We decided against the Worlds doubling up as a BHPC points event this time.
Race numbers will also be different, everyone will get a new one allocated on a first come, first served basis, starting at 500...

Regarding the York race on 23 June...

That's the velodrome, correct? That's an outdoors track correct? Any idea what the transition to the apron is like; abrupt vs curved (as was Derby).

Cheers

Hi Ken,
I think we have the circuit and the velodrome (they are next to each other).
 
Here is a video by Ian Perry from when we did a demonstration event on the velodrome there a couple of years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW-NhqEocvk" rel="nofollow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW-NhqEocvk

Ah, cheers. I guess that begs the question, is the race on the circuit or the velodrome?

I'd love to join in with your races but they are so far south that it takes some doing to get around to them, but I'd go to the ends of the earth to ride on a velodrome.

Great video. Mighty short acceleration up to 25 to get on the banking though. I think I'd be taking the full straight.
Transition looks slightly abrupt but possibly not too bad with only 30 deg banking. Should be a piece of cake after Derby. Not planning a repeat of last years flip and slide fun.

On a side note, we have a circuit opening, well, should be this month (Feb) in Fife, so if you want to go international for 2019 or try to slip in a bonus northern race this year, I can get in touch with the folks running it to see if we can find room for you. Final development for a circuit in Linlithgow is in the works as well so you might have two lovely choices for racing up north (probably moss free as well). They're close enough that a weekend session could hit both tracks once Linlithgow is built!

We raced at the Edinburgh Meadow bank Velodrome about 1997. Have you tried that? It made me feel a bit sick as it is two D's connected with two straights and not a true oval.
 
Steve Slade rode his Kingcycle on the handrail down the staircase under the stands and banking to get onto the track.

Hello Ken

On Sun 23 Jun at York we have the race circuit booked 10:30-12:30 and then the velodrome 1-3pm.

THe York Cycle rally in also on that weekend (22-23 Jun), so there's plenty to do in the area on the Saturday for those travelling from afar who want to make a good weekend of it....

The 23rd of June is a Saturday and that's what I've put in the race calendar on Facebook and the website. Should it be Sunday 24th instead?

Quibell park is easy. Much bigger than the indoor tracks and not banked enough for really fast bikes. Transition is all concrete.

Sorry, I got the wrong one. When you mention transition, I assume it is from the infield to the track. Usually no prob on outdoor tracks. Indoor tracks often have slow foam material inside the running area and an abrupt transition.
