General Club Guidelines:

Motorsport can be dangerous. Despite the organisers taking all reasonable precautions, unavoidable accidents may happen. In respect of this you are present at your own risk.

All dogs must be kept on leads.

No motorcycles must be started unless authorised by the NNS officials. This includes training, racing and camping. Please keep within the club boundaries.

No push cycles in straw pit area when training is in progress or on race meetings.                          


All trainers are ACU affiliated, first aid qualified and DBS/CRB checked. All motorcycles and equipment used are subject to a technical inspection and may be declined. 

First aid personnel reserve the option to stop a rider from training if deemed physically unfit.   

All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Motorcycle hire is free for your first session, £5.00 for the next 2 sessions and then £15.00 for each subsequent sessions. Safety equipment is always available to borrow.

Motorcycles are only available to hire for training purposes, not available for race meetings.  Motorcycles may be available on training days if a member has a motorcycle failure.

Training structure:

Riders follow a training system and a minimum of 3 lessons are taught per training session. This is subject to the weather and stoppages due to accidents.

In the event of a cancellation once a session is started and less than 2 lessons have been given, a credit of £5.00 will be issued towards the next training session. If a session is delayed due to an accident or weather and this causes you an issue please talk to the secretary of the day.

We endeavour to start our training sessions on time but this is not always possible. On training days the rule of thumb is ‘if it is raining at 7 postpone to 11, if raining at 10 we'll try again'.

This is by request of the land owners.

Starting Tapes:

If a child causes a false start he/she will be cautioned and can join the restart. If he/she then causes a false start a second time in the same heat he/she will be penalised for that heat.

Pegs and other racing incidents:

At the discretion of the Clerk of the Course an offender’s number will be written on the board in the pit area as a warning. On a second offence the rider may be penalised. It is the rider’s responsibility to check the board and information given.
