  • Record Crowds at GH Motorcycles and GB Finch Evening Motocross at Wattisfield Hall – 5th July

    Diss MCCs Wednesday evening MX on 5th July attracted a great quality entry of riders and the good weather helped with the record crowds. The 12 race programme of short races meant all action from spectator perspective and feedback from riders was track preparation was spot on and rode great. National rider Elliott Banks Browne on his Geartec Husqvarna was on top form wining all four races – check out YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UBQO5CbINs for a great GoPro video demonstrating what is it like to get a good start and lap the course in record speed! In the enduro class, Tom Braddock was on great form, winning all of his three races, although Tim Rose was right on his back wheel.

    Many thanks goes to GH Motorcycles and GB Finch for their continued support of the event and also to all riders, marshals and helpers who helped make the meeting such a success.

  • GH Motorcycles Evening Motocross Programme - 5th July below in File Depot 

  • Great Entry for GH Motorcycles Evening Motocross – 5th July 2017 – 6pm - Wattisfield Hall

    A full entry of 130 riders has been accepted for the GH Motorcycles evening motocross at Wattisfield Hall. From a spectators’ perspective this is one of the most popular motocross events of the year with a 12 race programme finishing at about 8.30pm with 2½ hours of non-stop action.

    The entry includes British Championship and Eastern Centre riders Elliott Banks-Browne (Geartec Husqvarna), Lewis Tombs (Lings Husqvarna), Shaun Southgate (Herts MX Honda UK) and 2016 Eastern Centre Champion Luke Parker riding for the event sponsor GH Motorcycles of Colchester. One rider who hasn’t ridden much recently but suspect he will still be very competitive, is former top Eastern Centre Rider Syd Bales.

    Three times race winner at the Diss MCC May meeting at Wattisfield, Jason Morland (Aim KTM) has entered the MX class but Jason would have been equally at home in the enduro class as he is the current Eastern Centre Enduro Champion. Unique to this event is a race for enduro riders and this group has an entry of 36 riders competing on machines which have headlights fitted. Some bikes will even be road legal and a number of riders such as Ross Taylor (Ranson Racing Honda) will only just be back from riding last week the 280 mile Welsh 2 day enduro in Mid Wales.

    The track at Wattisfield is looking really good as it has been deep cultivated and fully graded following the sidecar Clubman’s British Championship in May. The jumps have also been graded and the drop off into the bomb hole made good to provide maximum air time.

    The club would like to say a special thanks to Clarkes of Walsham and GH Motorcycles who have been excellent supporters of club for many years. Their involvement is greatly appreciated. Gavin Hockey, the owner of GH Motorcycles will have a stand on site so check out his products for a good deal.

    The important thing to remember is to get there early to get a good parking space.

  • Illegal Riding threatens the future of the Muntjac and Santon Enduros – Thetford Forest

    After a period of 30 years, the thoughtless actions of a few riders is threatening the future of enduros in Thetford Forest.  Despite the publicity already warning riders of this, there are a number examples of trail, enduro and motocross riders illegally riding. This includes very sensitive conservation areas and land used by for the Muntjac and Santon Enduros.  A number of riders have been caught by the Forestry and Police and Section 59 (public order warnings / potential to have your bike crushed) have been issued to a total of 11 riders in recent months.

    The problem used to be limited to local riders from the nearby towns but now the problem involves trail riders and ACU licence holders. The ACU at Rugby has applied a zero tolerance to any rider caught, and to date one expert motocross rider (eastern centre) and two enduro riders (not from the eastern centre) have had their ACU licence suspended.

    To make the position absolutely clear, you are not permitted to ride on Forestry land unless it is an authorised ACU event (Muntjac and Santon Enduro) or an authorised location such as Hit the Dirt at Swaffham. If you do enjoy trail riding you must keep to the authorised byways. None of the former Diss MCC enduro courses are authorised for trail riding and this includes tracks or pits on Forestry land adjacent to byways. Ignorance is not an excuse!

     In summary, if off road events are to continue on Forestry land in the eastern centre, positive action needs to be taken now. It is important for all clubs to get the message out to riders if the sport as we know it now is to survive!
