The Best Western Moat House Hotel, Stoke on Trent has once more been booked for this years bash on Saturday October 19, 2019 and for those who have not been before, this is a 4 star modern hotel built within the grounds of the magnificent Etruria Hall, near Stoke-On-Trent.

The Hotel also has full leisure facilities, including heated pool and air conditioned gym / spa, is close to the Potteries Shopping Centre and adjacent to Waterworld, one of Europes largest waterparks.

We need to be seated for 7-30pm for the meal, so that the presentation can start at approx 8-30pm.

ONLY DRINK BOUGHT IN THE HOTEL WILL BE ALLOWED INTO THE FUNCTION ROOM & CHECKS WILL BE MADE BY THE HOTEL STAFF.

Send or e mail the attached form to Geoff Shuttleworth to reserve your place and order your preferred menu before the end of September. Cheques or bank transfer should be made payable to ‘National Twinshock Association’.

Note! Places can only be reserved with payment before the night. If it helps cheques will not be cashed until the end of September. Rooms are to be booked through the hotel and are not charged until leaving.

For accommodation at the hotel call 01782-609988, and Quote ‘Twinshock’ for discounted twin/double room rate of £80 (Normally £135) for Bed & Breakfast, but this deal only lasts UNTIL SEPTEMBER 26, after which the price goes up. We have again been allocated 80 rooms but as usual it is on a first come first served basis, so please don’t leave it until the last minute as you will probably be disappointed.

Anyone staying on the Friday evening will receive the same room rate.

News for 2019

National Twinshock MX Championships 2019

Entries for rounds one and two are now open for registered riders, and payments can be made over the phone to Chloe and Heather at Cumbria Twinshock on 01229-463805 / 07887-407590. Registered riders do not have to fill out entry forms for Cumbria Twinshock events. Please let them know if you require a hired ‘mylaps’ transponder.

Some classes are over-subscribed, and therefore if you intend to do the full series, it would be advisable to enter well in advance of the event, especially the early rounds.

You will be able to collect your IOPD licence at the first event that you attend.

Please help the clubs by entering in mid-January, as non-registered riders will be accepted as the event date approaches.

Good news for the all new Super Evo class is that they will be doing all the rounds, including the opener at Polesworth.

Super Evos will be in the same race as the Evo Open riders, with a split start, and will be scored separately.

Inters Twinshock riders will race with the 250 Twinshock riders, and will be scored separately.

Over 50/60 Twinshock riders will race together, with a split start, and will be scored separately.

Vets Over 40/50 riders will race together, and scored together.

Experts Twinshock and 125 Twinshock riders will race together, and be scored separately.

The Clubman Twinshock class will be for registered riders only, and riders will be upgraded after the first two rounds if too fast for the class.

Finally, if you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to ask.

National Twinshock Championship 2019

Here are some details if you are considering registering for the 2019 Toughsheet National Twinshock MX Championship series. The registration fee enables us as an organisation, to provide each event with programmes and a commentary, and helps pay for the end of season trophies, and entitles you to a cheaper entry than non-registered riders or other organisations that join us at individual events.

Our class structure for 2019 is as follows;
Clubman Twinshock (For registered novices and beginners – Upgrades will be decided at rounds 1&2)
Intermediate Twinshock
Experts Twinshock
Over 50’s / 60’s Twinshock
125 Twinshock
250 Twinshock
125 Evolution (Monoshock Bikes Pre-90)
Evolution Open (Monoshock Bikes Pre-90)
Super Evolution Rounds 2-6 (Pre 97 steel frames and may race with Evo Open class and a split start)
Veterans (Over 40’s and 50’s on any bike in the same race)

Helpful Information
You will be able to collect your IOPD licence at the first event that you attend.
You may enter and pay over the phone at all Cumbria Twinshock events, and do not need to complete an entry form. See individual entry forms for other clubs arrangements.
All entry forms, with phone numbers, fees and directions will be available to download from www.nationaltwinshock.co.uk where you will also find a full set of rules for the championship.
Some classes are over-subscribed, and therefore if you intend to do the full series, it would be advisable to enter well in advance of the event, especially the early rounds.
Transponders will be used at all our events, and your number must be submitted to the secretary.
If you require a hired transponder, please let the secretary know at least one week prior to the event.
Riders must be registered to score championship points, and non-registered riders will be removed from the points, and you will move up and receive their points.
Twinshock bikes must have two rear shocks, be air cooled and have drum brakes, but will include all pre-82 water cooled monoshock Yamahas and other pre-82 water cooled machines. Forks must not exceed 46mm diameter.
Evolution machines must be pre-1990 and fitted with period parts, and have the original frame, engine and braking system. In the event of a protest, riders within that class may vote on the acceptability of that machine.
Super Evo bikes must be Pre-97 with steel frames, and we hope to include them at all the rounds, but may struggle at the opening round until we know the entry situation.
Please help the clubs by entering as soon as possible, as non-registered riders will be accepted as the event date approaches.

Also, please support our many sponsors, and give them something back in return for supporting us.

Finally, if you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to ask.

2019 Annual AGM

 

Our AGM is on Saturday October 20th at the Moat House Hotel Stoke, where we will be drawing up a provisional calendar of events, and looking to see if we can tinker with the classes again. We are hoping to have either a six or seven round series in 2019, which is becoming difficult, as more and more series and events come on to the calendar.

Registration forms for the 2019 season will be available from the website or at the Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh, which runs from November 1st to November 4th.

Due to the popularity of the Vets and Evo 125 classes, we may have to limit the number of registrations to the first 50 riders, as they were over subscribed at the first four rounds in 2018.

If approved at the AGM, we may also have a Super Evo class, which would run with the Evolution Open class on a split start basis, with the first 20 riders to register.
