Norwich New Stars Spring News Letter.



Welcome to a new season of grasstrack racing.

What a great year we had last year, three successful races, including a team challenge, Ride for life and several fathers races. Also 14 training days throughout the season. We would like to thank all the volunteers who gave their time and expertise through the year, parents for supporting the children and of course the riders whose enthusiasm and enjoyment is infectious.

AGM: 26th February, Spixworth social Club 7.30 for 8.00.

There will be a quick talk by our chairman and a time to socialise and catch up with old friends, the social club is child friendly and has a great playing field.

We are now on Twitter thanks to Heidi.

Training format: This year we will be introducing a new system on training days. It is important to understand that as a club the trainers try to adhere to the timings but delays can happen. Trainees will only attend one session per training day.

There will be 2 sessions each day.

1st session will be for experienced riders with own bikes. This will be a turn up and ride session. Booking in from 9.00 riding from 9.30 to 12.00pm. Once a rider is booked in and ready to ride they line up at the pit exit. The lead trainer then chooses the group to ride from the available riders, training will be given on a more informal basis. You may have as many rides as there is time for in the session. A record will be kept so ensure every rider has a fair share of track time.

Cost £15.00 per session.

2nd Session will be for new riders or children who need to use a club bike. Please book in from 12.00 and riding by 12.30. This will be for children who require one to one training and guidance by a trainer. This will be a book in advance session, please request a place by the Wednesday before. Consideration will be given to experience, bikes available and the number of times a child has ridden this season. Names will be posted on Wednesday and it will be announced if the session is full.

Cost £15.00 per session.

Bike hire is included for your first three sessions with the club, then an additional £15.00 will be charged for each session.

Race Dates:  24th April, Team Challenge and 21st August, Derek Hewitt Shield and Ladies Ride. The October race is a provisional date only.

After the success of last year, we hope to hold a Ladies ride on August 21st. Suggestions for the charity this year are welcome. We will post more information on how this will work later in the year.


Due to the increased cost of holding a race we are requesting that payment has to be made in advance of a race meeting. We can accept payments by cheque, cash and direct bank transfer. Racing regs will be available to download and emailed back. We need to know who is attending a race a week before as we need to order the trophies and pay for the first aid cover. Late entries or entries with no payment may not receive their trophy on race day. Race fees will stay the same at £30.00.


Looking forward to seeing you all in 2016.
