Time to dust off those No.2 rigs as we have a feast of IOM racing ahead of us at Birkenhead this winter.

First up is the Strebor Trophy Open Event on 3rd November. Briefing at 09.45, first race at 10.00 and no race to start after 16.00. Tea and coffee will be available all day but competitors/guests should bring their own food. Entry fee is £3.

The Xmas Dash is also an IOM event this year – full details here

Xmas Dash Race

With the water levels being low this year and some silting up in the lake we have taken the early decision to swap the class for this season’s  Xmas Dash race on 15th December from Marblehead to IOM – so don’t turn up with a Marblehead!

In another break from tradition, there won’t be a cash entry fee this year  – instead, in the spirit of Christmas, we ask all entrants to bring a gift-wrapped present with a minimum value of £5 (ie. we will have a “secret santa” prizegiving).

Racing will start promptly at 10.30am.

This is an open event for all MYA members and you may enter on the day, but if you are intending to race,  please email Graham Elliott so we have an idea of the number of entries.

 

 

 

It’s a busy September

Starting at Birkenhead on 15th September when we host the Dragonforce DF65 Northern District Championship, then on  16th September Keighley for  the IOM Northern District Championship, and a week later on  22nd September we host the RG65 TT Series.

If you want to practice for the DF65 or RG65 events, we also have DF6F/RG65 series racing this coming Saturday 8th September – all MYA members are welcome to attend and race.

Full Notices of Race are available for download below for our main events and also the Keighley IOM  Championship but to summarise – both  events at Birkenhead, racing starts at 10am prompt. Registration from 8.30am and no race to start after 4pm or heat to finish after 5pm.

Entry is £5. Hot and cold drinks will be available to purchase in the clubhouse (bring your own lunch).

Entry is available online at the MYA website or as directed in the NoR.
