BMCC TT 2017 Season – Weston on the Green

The TT season at Weston on the Green starts this Tuesday 28th March 2017. Due to the limited day light hours we have a total of 40 entries available on this date.

Club Time Trials are organised and regularly run by BMCC on Tuesday nights through the summer period at RAF Weston on the Green airfield (OX25 3TQ). These events are open to BMCC members and guests.

For 2017 there is an Intra club league for solo TT events. The rules are as follows:

  • All BMCC 1st claim solo riders will automatically be eligible for the league
  • Points are awarded for position on the night, ie 1st = 30 point, 2nd =29 etc..

Safety is paramount

Please observe rules specific to the course, namely:

  • KEEP RIGHT all around the course unless overtaking (of course, no drafting, pacing or teamwork on solo events or risk disqualification – it is the responsibility of the passed person to allow a gap to the rider who passed)
  • CHECK OVER LEFT SIDE before pulling across the track to exit the course on the left side on completion of trial

Please note: While we have permission to run TT on the airfield, this is on the condition that should the airfield be required for its intended purpose (ie, usually parachute drops!) we will be unable to hold the event. We are usually (but not always) given prior notice and a notification will be posted on the BMCC club Facebook Page. Apologies for any inconvenience, but please be understanding with the organisers on the night should this occur.
