NOTICE TO ALL NEW RACING MEMBERS

If you require a Basic Riding Assessment for your Licence Application, your nearest venue is Three Sisters.

Brent Moor of the Preston Motorcycle Racing Club is holding an event on Friday 9th March.

You will need to pre book using the Booking Form which is on the Preston Motorcycle Racing Club website.

This is a very popular event so early booking is advised.

NEMCRC Trainers are involved in training new Riders.

The NEMCRC ASSISTANCE FOR NEW ROAD RACE LICENCE APPLICANTS

The North-East Motorcycle Racing Club has brought in measures to assist first time road race applicants in obtaining their first novice Road Race License. The club has 3 x ACU approved instructors who regularly travel to The Three Sisters Circuit in Lancashire to assist in training first time applicants. This being the nearest circuit to the North East where ACU Basic Rider Assessments can take place.

All first-time applicants are required to join an ACU Affiliated Club and complete a classroom based ACU Competitor Training Course followed by an ACU Basic Rider assessment.

There are separate costs for both of these elements which the applicant must pay.

To assist First Time Applicants, the NEMCRC will waver the cost for the ACU Competitor Training Course (The Class Room Element) to all applicants joining the NEMCRC (affiliated to the ACU).

This element of the ACU Competitor Training Course will take place at the clubs HQS in North Shields by one of our ACU qualified Instructors. This leaves only the Basic Rider Assessment at Three Sisters to be then taken.

For further information if you would like a chat about starting racing  contact the NEMCRC via Instructor, Ian Bainbridge, on 01833 631855 or Mobile 07772929822 or via ibainb5802@btinternet.com

Important Notice/Letter from ACU

ATTENTION ALL RIDING MEMBERS

Dear ACU Licence Holder

Concussion related injuries has taken on much more prominence recently because of the well-publicised injuries reported in the sport of Rugby.

Why must Concussion be taken seriously?

Ignoring the signs and symptoms of concussion may result in a more serious brain injury, a prolonged period of recovery or in the worst case lead to death. The potential for serious and prolonged injury emphasises the need for medical assessment and follow up medical support until the concussion injury has been fully resolved. A return to competitive motorcycle sport before the complete resolution of the concussion exposes the rider to recurrent concussion and also places himself and others at further risk of an incident and possible injury. There is no such thing as minor concussion or a ‘knock to the head’. Continue reading

Camera’s On Bikes (Croft)

The Club will be following the instructions in the ACU Handbook for placing camera’s on bikes.  If you wish to do so you must put your request in writing to the Clerk of the Course.  This should be posted prior to the meeting, however if you have not done so you can hand it in at signing on.  This only applies to the Croft event.
