A number of Championships have been put together by PMH Promotions after requests by many Road Racers who can’t afford to do the short circuit Championships. The first one has been run successfully for 2 years by the Auto 66 Club and for 2015 becomes the “UK Road and Track Championship” with rounds at Oliver’s Mount, Armoy in Ireland, the Southern 100 in the Isle of Man and the Ulster Grand Prix, counting towards this Championship.
The Championship is being supported by Silkolene and Bridgestone and will cater for Super Lightweights i.e. Minitwin etc – Junior 600ccs and Senior 700cc-1100cc classes. There will be 14 rounds with 12 to count and there is already £1000 in the pot for the end of season Champions with hopefully more to come.
Another new Championship being run at the request of many riders and entrants is the UK Classic F1 and F2. These events will be run at Oliver’s Mount and Cadwell Park with 2 rounds at each meeting. The formula for the classes is the same as the Classic TT regulations which can be found on the Isle of Man webpage.
Already there is £2500 in the kitty for the end of season prize fund and talks are carrying on with a possible sponsor to increase this series.
The Sidecars have not been forgotten – work is in progress to put together Formula 2 Road Masters Series. More details on this in the next few weeks.
