Laverton is situated near Ripon in North Yorkshire. The venue is a farm venue with approximately 130 acres of fast and flowing land, with a small woodland to break it up! If you loved the Grewelthorpe track, then you will love this! The crew are lucky to be able to use this land in between the farmer’s busy schedule, but are looking forward to putting on another awesome track for you all! “Edge” anticipate the lap to be around 10 minutes with it being so open and flowing. This in turn though will be a really enjoyable track and therefore suitable for ALL abilities with no stoppers. MX/Enduro/New to the Sport riders – you’ll love it! Please make sure any aftermarket exhaust systems are fitted with a baffle! We don’t want any noisy bikes please! Any 2 strokes that need re-packing please do it before this event! Bikes will be noise tested! Saturday Play Day 10am until 3.30pm and on the Sunday there will be three races; Kids, Morning event and PM event. Signing on starting at 8.00am. Event schedule is on the website.
The weekend straight after this event – 22nd & 23rd June – will see Westwood being the host to the Eurotek Sharp Edge Sprint Championship, Rounds 5 & 6! Each day will be scored individually – so you don’t have to compete in both days. Sonya Jarvis, Event Director, has said “We have always said that every Championship should have a variety of venues so it’s fair on everyone – so we think that Westwood is ideal for a Sprint with it being a woodland site, it gives the more technical rider a chance, moving away from the faster venues. It’s still suited to all riders, but a lot of Motocross riders would love the layout of the day, we just need to try and encourage them to turn their hand to something a bit different! For sure it has the potential to work, we just need the support of the riders to get behind it. The atmosphere is great for everyone, it’s certainly something not to be missed, especially with us using the live timing!”
Classes are set as follows:- Youth (85-125cc), Novice, Sportsman, Vets (Sportsman Over 40’s), Clubman, Masters (Expert/Clubman Over 40’s), Expert and Premier. Entries will be capped, so don’t leave entering to the last minute! Trophies will be presented at the end of each day for the top three in each class. Proper value for money! Signing on will start both days from 7.30am, there will be a sighting lap each day at 9am, and then the first rider will start at 9.30am. The riders will get 8-9 laps in a day. Sunday will run in the opposite direction to Saturday. The venue is signed with orange arrows from Tankersley – it is easy to find, exact details will be on the Final Instructions.
