A HOST of new machinery could be lining up on the grid at Aberdare Park this year as chiefs reveal a fresh crop of classes for 2020.
While Aberaman Motorcycle Club bosses have been forced to axe the planned May classic event due to ‘a major programme of works due to be carried out which affects plans’, they are still forging ahead with a view to run it in 2021.
But for their blue riband July meeting, they say there are plenty of hot new items on the docket.
Among a number of additions, the club has made provisions for 750cc pre-injection machinery to run on the classics grid.
And with hopes of bolstering their strong crop of entries and revamping the programme, chiefs have even added a CB500 and Bandit 600 grid – which could prove a perfect way in for first-time Aberdare competitors.
But as a statement this morning revealed, that could be just the tip of the iceberg for a bigger and better Park bash in 2020.
We are hoping to get the paddock powered up with some silent run generators and a few other changes in general.
There are also a few changes we need to undertake to keep our underwriters on side. This will involve a lot more risk assessing to generally help keep the event safe for all.
The 2020 Aberdare Park Road Races are set to run on July 18-19, with special event guests to be announced in the coming weeks.
