Here We Go Again – 2017!

Here We Go Again

A Happy New Year to all of you.

The 2017 Toughsheet National Twinshock Scramble Championship series, kicks off with the annual visit to Stipers Hill, Polesworth on Easter Sunday, April 16th, for the 26th year, as one of the longest running MX series, started by Brian Salt, Bill Brown, Alan Hardy and Ken Shuttleworth back in 1992.

We must again thank again our sponsors, some who do it for the love of the sport, and some who do it to give their company a higher profile, so please support them if you are looking to buy something.

Give it up for Toughsheet, LPE, CI Sport, Wulfsport, MD Racing, Falcon Shocks, AB Race Cruisers, MRH Consultants, Woodys Vintage Honda, KAIS, Phil Denton Engineering, Central Motors Salvage, Mick Gardner Racing, Pemberton Tyres, VMX Gaskets, Putoline, S-N Properties, JK Racing, 2 Wheel Motion and Martindales.

We are still the cheapest series to enter in the UK at £20, and pride ourselves on giving everyone a truly enjoyable family race weekend. Fill out and send off the registration form, which entitles you to cheaper entries than non-registered riders, and your race number for the season. This money goes towards printing costs, programmes, commentary, and to subsidise the annual trophies which are awarded at the end of season bash at the Moat House Hotel, Stoke. Registration forms are now available on our website www.nationaltwinshock.co.uk or our Facebook page Twinshock MX.

There are Twinshock classes for Clubman, Intermediate, Expert, 125, Over 50’s & 60’s riders, plus Evolution Open & 125 riders, and finally the Veterans class on any bike for over 40 & 50 riders.

For 2017, we have a seven round series, with two double headers at Hawkstone and Pontrilas.

April 16 Cumbria TSC at Polesworth, Staffs,

April 29 (Saturday) Cumbria TSC at Hawkstone Park (Inc. Matt Murphy Memorial),

May 21 Yorkshire TSC at Finningley, Doncaster.

June 18 Lancashire TSC at Eskham House Farm, Garstang, Lancaster.

July 23 Yorkshire TSC at Wilberfoss, York.

August 27/28 Cumbria TSC at Hawkstone Park. (Incl. Festival of Legends),

September 23/24 Cumbria TSC at Howton Court, Pontrilas, Hereford.

For those of you who are new to twinshock racing, your registration allows you to score points in your chosen championship class for the end of season awards, although you may ride as many classes on the day as you can afford for trophies.

All our events are run by IOPD affiliated clubs and therefore you MUST buy an annual or day licence. Annual licences can now be paid for by sending direct to Geoff Shuttleworth, to avoid the nightmare of queuing at round one, cost just £15 or £5 for a day licence. These will be issued by Cumbria TSC at the first event you enter. We will again be using transponders, which can be bought direct from HS Sports or hired at each event by giving Chloe Hudson a weeks notice prior to each event.

We are still looking for event sponsors at the cheapest rate in the country, which includes use of trackside banners, trade stand space and programme advert at all rounds, so if you are interested and you want to give your company some extra publicity please give us a call. Finally, if you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to ask, and let’s have another cracking twinshock season in 2017.
