With the Xmas and New Year festivities over, it’s time to kick start our 2023 race season. With our usual crit track at the TEC in poor condition and hence unavailable for racing, we have applied to the council for permission to race at the (currently unused) road loop out at the Airport Business Park.
The great news is that we have been given permission to race at the airport until the end of March, so we will have our first race this Saturday 21st January. With this in mind, below are some important details for those planning to race.
Airport Loop Access & Parking
As this location is accessed directly from the New England Highway, we recommend riders drive to the race location where possible, and do race warmup and cooldown at the race location. See picture below for parking details.
Closed Road Racing
We have been given permission to close the road access from 3.45pm to 5.15pm; council have put sign out at the location, which just need to be put up & taken down before/after racing.
We will need someone to do the timing & lap counter for each race day. January race duty is covered; roster for Feb/Mar tbc.
Post Race Refreshments
Luckily the closest location happens be the Great Hops Brewery!
