Full Race Day Details

On arrival you will need to sign in even if you have registered in advance. “Pre-Sheets” then get posted on a board and you need to check you are entered in the right category with the right plate number etc. Then “Moto-Sheets” are posted. These have 3 races for each rider. (e.g  4:7  56: 2   110:4). This indicates the rider is in race 4 (in gate position 7), race 56 (gate 2) and race 110 (gate 4). 

 

Club Reps will help the beginners ensure they know which Moto races they are in. 

Riders need to be in the pens (holding queues) roughly 10 races before each race. There are 10 pens numbered 0-9. If you are in race 56 you go to Pen 6, for 110 you would be in Pen 0, etc. 

 

Depending on the results from the Motos and dependant on how many riders are in the category will determine if you go through to a Semi-Final (sometimes Quarter Finals if it is a very big category). These are posted in the same way as the Moto sheets. The top 4 riders from each semi go through to the “A-Final”. The bottom 4 riders go through to a “B-Final"

 

Bikes and Safety equipment can be organised through Hackney BMX and we will arrange it getting to the race. We can give you a plate number if you need one, too. Just let us know what you need!

 

All in all it’s a fun day out - come along!
