Welcome to the West
Devon MCC Site
MXGB Championship – Round 6 Sunday, 15th August, 2010
West Devon MCC at Farleigh Castle, (MX1, MX2 and Veterans)
The West Devon MCC is proud to bring top quality Motocross back to Farleigh Castle. Steeped in tradition, we have tried to maximise the “Farleigh feeling” by sticking to as much of the original course from the GP days of the late eighties as possible.
It is now approx ten years since a British Championship event took place at the venue. Having spoken to many of the riders, they are looking forward to the challenge. No huge jumps – some slippery grass to begin with??? and of course the wooded section.
The main difference is that there will not be any “nips” into the top field and by kind permission of Bill Douglas, a set of small waves will be placed right at the top of the main spectator area, but that will be the only construction to take place – leaving Farleigh as natural as possible. The riders will still disappear into the woods for around 25 seconds and, of course, there will be the expectation element of who will appear back into the clearing first?
Need another reason to attend? The MX1 and MX2 class international field will be supported by two Veterans races to further indulge you in some history from one of Britain’s most famous circuits.
Do come and join us, camping available from 8am Saturday onwards, for a weekend to remember.
