BOSSES at the North East Club have upped the ante for next season as they announce a four-round 2020 championship campaign with two visits to Croft.
The NEMCRC’s resurfaced home track will host the season opener along with a late-summer meeting, while racers will also descend on East Fortune twice next year.
Action at Croft will begin on April 4 and 5 for the club’s first round of 2020 before riders head north of the border to Scotland five weeks later for round two.
Then it’s a long break until September, when the racing returns to North Yorkshire for the Battle of Britain meeting – which will include a round of the FSRA F2s. NEMCRC bosses have said they are planning one set of races for Open and F600s, with the other for Sound of Thunder machines, Pre Injections, Stock/Supertwins, F400s and the like.
A last scrap for points will be held five weeks later in mid-October as the season comes to a close at East Fortune with sidecars set to battle it out once again for the Ian Bell Memorial Trophy.
NEMCRC 2020 race dates:
Round 1: April 4-5 – Croft
Round 2: May 16-17 – East Fortune
Round 3: September 5-6 – Croft*
Round 4: October 10-11 – East Fortune
*Battle of Britain meeting with championship points along the lines of the Bob Mac for Classics/500 Twins. In one race Open and F600’s, other race SoT, PI, Stock/Super Twins, F400 etc. Only 40 riders per race so entries will be ‘first come first served basis’ when released. This is the plan but TBC.
