Hi All,
 
We've been invited to take part in a velodrome session during the York Rally this year...
Any takers????
 
We'll need volunteers to organise while some people man the stand at the rally - so I'm hoping this gets a better response (ie some response...) than the recent call for BHPC race organisers, otherwise it won't happen....
 
This is from the Rally organisers....
 

"Hi Alan

 

It looks as though we can coordinate an HPV session on the velodrome as part of the Rally weekend.  The session will need to be cordinated with a supervised ride from The Knavesmire to the track (2- 3 miles), but the opportunity is there for you to organise the 'drome session along whatever lines you choose.

 

I am hoping we will also have another 'all-comers' freestyle session on the 'drome to which HPVs willl be very welcome.

 

There is some flexibility in timing, so we can talk about the details, but Saturday afternoon between 2 - 5pm could be an option.

 

Perhaps you could let me know what your ideal arrangement would be and we'll see how it fits in with the rest of the weekend.

 

How does this sound?

 

Cheers

 

Simon."

Just to clarify, are you looking for people to ride in the velodrome, some to organise the ride to the velodrome and some to man the stand whilst the others are either riding the velodrome or overseeing the ride to the velodrome Confused

I'd like to ride the velodrome please....Thumbs Up
Ian, racing again No 6.

I don't mind manning the stand for some of that time.

Yep! We'll need somebody covering the stand all weekend... We'll also need someone to organise a race at the velo and people to take part (preferably fast people so we don't look like a bunch of slow old gits... I'll be on the stand... Big smile

Alan, you say a race? I thought it was a demonstration of speed?  If we have a race that means carting all the timing gear, clock flags getting timers paperwork etc, also not sure a race is wise first time in an indoor velodrome, it is indoor isn't it, not just Scunthorpe in York?

It's a 250m outdoor (tarmac) velodrome apparently next to the new circuit we went to last year (and are going to in April).
 
So I'm guessing we need it to be a dry day!!!
 
We used to race on the indoor 250m velodrome at Newport and it was ok.
It won't be a BHPC points race - Format really would depend on who turns up...
 
I'm thinking more of a fun/demonstration rather than anything serious.

Hi Brian,
No this is during the York Rally in June...
 
 
BHPC will have a stand at the main Rally on the racecourse.
 
All the best
Alan
