at Butts Quarry on April 15th
RideoffroadUK heads off to Butts Quarry for the first round of the Putoline Oil 4-Hour Series in two weeks time, 15th April. The main reason for choosing Butts Quarry is in the event of wet weather, the event and parking facilities at Butts will not be an issue for any competitor or spectator. Having had two very wet events starting the 2012 season, we are edging on the side of caution until the spring weather really takes hold. Butts Quarry is a very central venue, and we hope to attract riders from the Midlands to compete in this new series backed by UK lubricant giant Putoline Oils.
The day starts with the Putoline 2-hour Youth event which caters for super fit kids who wish to take on the 2-hour event solo or a class for 2-man teams. After a short break for the presentation and results of the Youth event, it will be the turn of the adults to start the marathon Putoline 4-hour bash.
Team riders can ride on their own machine or share one bike, both riders on the same race number, next to the pits area is a "Change Over" area where one rider waits for his team mate to come in and "tag" him so he can then go out on track. This allows riders to take a well earned break and socialise, or make vital repairs and adjustments whilst their team mate is out clocking up the laps.
Solo Ironman riders simply start and ride solo for the full 4 hours... are you strong enough for the challenge??Classes:
