ANOTHER year of cross-country action beckons as the British Motorcycle Racing Club releases its race calendar for 2018, with Pembrey in and Oulton Park out.
Bemsee officials recently pulled the wraps off next year’s 10-race campaign, with a few key changes from this season’s series including a swap between Silverstone and Cadwell in April.
More significantly, the club will forgo races at Oulton and instead head to Carmarthenshire in Wales in late July for a weekend at Pembrey Circuit.
The second Cadwell and Snetterton rounds will be moved up a place, leaving Brands Hatch Indy the scene for the BMCRC season finale.
Each race date, apart from Donington, will include a test day on the Friday. Club classes will run eight of 10 rounds while the Ninjas, Rookie 600s and Rookie 1000s will run nine of 10.
The club’s flagship MRO Powerbikes and MRO 600 series will run at all 10 rounds of the championship.
BMCRC provisional 2018 race calendar:
18 February – CTC Course: Brands Hatch Indy
10-11 March – Round 1: Brands Hatch Indy
7-8 April – Round 2: Silverstone International
