Race calendar released for Club MSV Bike Trackday Trophy

Thursday, February 09 2012

Club MSV has released further details of the new Bike Trackday Trophy series, including a calendar for the inaugural 2012 season. The series has been created to encourage trackday riders into motor racing, following the success of the four-wheeled equivalent, which has introduced over 100 drivers to the sport.

The Bike Trackday Trophy will follow two race formats. For solo riders there will be a 45 minute race with a three hour race for teams of two, three or four riders. Teams must have at least one novice rider who has competed in less than 10 races. A classing structure caters for pre and post year 2000 motorcycles.

The series debut round will take place at Cadwell Park on Sunday 28 April, which give riders plenty of time to prepare their bikes for competition. The next event will be at Snetterton on Tuesday 5 June, which falls during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Holiday, with a summer round following at Brands Hatch on Sunday 11 August. The series then returns to Cadwell Park, bike racing's spiritual home, on Saturday 6 October.

Club MSV will also be holding trackdays with testing sessions before each meeting, plus two pre-season trackdays for riders where ACU licence tests and equipment checks will be available. They will be held on 1 April at Cadwell Park and 16 April at Brands Hatch, and are priced at £99 and £149 respectively.

Looking forward to the new series, Club MSV Manager Alex Baker said: "Two years ago we launched the Car Trackday Trophy which has been an overwhelming success and has introduced well over 100 new drivers into the world of competitive motor sport, many of whom have successfully graduated to other series and championships organised by clubs all over the country. Now we want to replicate this successful formula for bikes.

"We have thousands of riders taking part in our trackdays each year and in 2010 the ACU issued Club MSV with the authority to administer ACU licence tests across the group of MSV circuits. With the introduction of the new series we'll be able to help riders from the first time they ride their bike on a race track, through their race training and preparation, all the way up to being sat on the grid waiting for the lights to go out. We want to create a series that is easy to get into, not too serious and ultimately fun for all involved."
