NEW DATE FOR POLESWORTH OPENING ROUND

Thanks go to Chloe Hudson and Cumbria Twinshock who have managed to juggle the dates for this year’s Toughsheet National Twinshocks and have all the paperwork in place for our roadmap out of the Covid crisis.

We are unable to run on our intended date of April 4 at Polesworth, so this has been moved to May 9, with the scheduled event at the Grange moved to June 13.

The paddock size for the opening round was a factor, as Polesworth can hold far more riders, who will have to comply with the bubble of six and arrive together if wanting to park with each other.

We will still be enforcing the mask wearing policy away from your vans as last year, and unfortunately, we will not be allowed a beer tent, but it does give us the chance to meet up and see everyone again.

Anyone that has already entered for Polesworth, will have their entries transferred over to May 9, unless you let Chloe know that you can’t attend.

Please start getting those entries in as some classes are nearly full.

April 1 Open to Second classes for riders.

April 15 Reserve riders get a chance to enter.

You can call Chloe weeknights between 6pm and 9pm on 01229-463805 / 07887-407590.

The new dates are,

May 9 Polesworth, Staffs.

May 30 Bevercotes, Notts.

June 13 The Grange, Tern Hill, Shropshire.

July 31/Aug 1 Pontrilas, Hereford.

August 29/30 Hawkstone Park.

September 18/19 Culham, Oxon.

Let’s hope that things go in the right direction over the next couple of months, and we can get back to some form of normality.

Polesworth Entries Open January 18

TOUGHSHEET ROUND 1 POLESWORTH

SUNDAY APRIL 4

Although we are currently in lockdown, and not even Mystic Meg can tell us when we will be back to normal, we are going to open entries for Polesworth for REGISTERED RIDERS, and if it does not happen, these entries will roll over to round 2 in May.

Due to the high volume of registrations in every class, it would be wise to get in as quick as you are able, and at round one we will only be able to accept each rider for one class until we see how many places are left.

You have until March 18, after which we will accept entries for our Reserves.

Entries Open Monday 18th January 6pm

Please call Chloe or Heather MONDAY-FRIDAY 6PM-9PM

07887-407590

Registered riders DO NOT have to fill out entry forms for this event, but just call and pay to secure your place.

News Update 17-11-20

Well folks we are halfway through the current ‘Lockdown’ and hoping that by April we will be back to some form of normality, COVID permitting. Just in case, we have managed to secure 10,000 vaccines, which we will administer at signing on at Polesworth, but we do need several scantily clad nurses to assist in these duties.

If you can help, please send photos to accompany your application (Discretion assured).

These vaccines will have built in 5G which will also incorporate a MYLAPS transponder, so no need for a bracket, plus we will be able to tell what time you left the beer tent, and whereabouts you are in the paddock when your race is due. But be careful with extra marital activity, as it shows up on the timing screens.

You may already have seen on our Facebook page, ‘Toughsheet National Twinshock Championship’,

that plans are in place to run a seven-round series in 2021.

All registrations and licences from 2020 have been rolled over to 2021, and we have asked riders to contact us by message or email if you would like to continue in the same class and on the same bike.

Most classes are now full or oversubscribed, with just a few places left in some of the twinshock classes. There has been a lot of interest from new riders to the series, and we have just passed our record for registrations, which currently stands at 340 (230 of them Twinshocks).

As you can imagine, with the large number of riders, the first round will be an absolute stonker, as everyone just wants to get out there, so there may be some restrictions on entering double classes so as to give everyone a ride, but rest assured we will endeavor to get everyone on the line.

And as we have 11 classes some may have to be merged, and perhaps a split start.

The very provisional dates and venues, which still have to be agreed with the landowners are ;

April 4 Cumbria Twinshock at Polesworth, Staffs.

May 9 Cumbria Twinshock at the Grange, Tern Hill, Shropshire.

May 30 Nottingham Twinshock at Bevercotes, Notts.

June 13 Cumbria Twinshock at Venue TBA.

August 1 Lancashire Twinshock at Astbury, Cheshire.

August 29/30 Cumbria Twinshock at Hawkstone Park.

September 18/19 Cumbria Twinshock at Culham, Abingdon, Oxon.

Nowt Dooin now till next year.

Ah Well. Looks like we did our best under the circumstances.

A big thank you to all of the members of the Twin Shock scene for making what we had, happen!

Especially Big Geoff , Big Al Hardy and Rock ‘ard Darren Hudson. With out them, non of what we have would ever have been possible.

 

Our application forms are ready for next year (2021), get them filled in and have something to look forward to.

Every one has plenty of time now to get their war horses battle ready.  No one can say they didn’t have time.

 

I can’t say it on here how I really mean it, but  ‘stuff’ the Corona Virus!’  will have to be the polite way to say it.

The fact that we have an Over 60’s class shows that we have some of the toughest people on earth participating in our sport!

Lets keep fit,well and healthy and start next year ready for anything.

Keep safe.
