NG Road Racing chiefs reveal 2018 calendar

In News, NG Road Racing

CHIEFS at the NG Road Racing Club have popped the covers off next year’s race calendar, with a big shift in dates and Thruxton not in the cards for 2018.

Much of next season’s programme has been shuffled, but racers will still have the opportunity to test while budding racers can undergo ACU Training on the first weekend of March, as with this year, at Pembrey Circuit in Wales.

And Round One also remains unchanged as riders will head to Kent for a weekend on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit just a couple weeks later.

Where Oulton Park followed for Round Two this year, Anglesey Circuit will take over as the Cheshire track becomes the scene of the club’s finale in early October.

A trip to Cadwell Park follows in mid-May before racers head to the Snetterton 200 circuit, then return to Wales four weeks later for a round at Pembrey.

August, September and October will all have a round each as the club finishes up the season on Donington Park’s National Circuit, the famed Castle Combe and then Oulton.

Racers have expressed disappointment with the axing of Thruxton, but club officials have reminded them that the decision was taken by track leaseholders at the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC), who required a shift in dates for their 50th anniversary celebrations next year.

NG Road Racing provisional racing calendar:

March 3-4 – Testing/ACU Training: Pembrey Circuit

March 17-18 – Round 1 & 2: Brands Hatch Indy

April 20-22 – Round 3 & 4: Anglesey Circuit

May 11-13 – Round 5 & 6: Cadwell Park

June 1-3 – Round 7 & 8: Snetterton 200

July 7-8 – Round 9 & 10: Pembrey Circuit

August 11-12 – Round 11 & 12: Donington Park National

September 1-2 – Round 13 & 14: Castle Combe

October 5-6 – Round 15: Oulton Park
