From the A42, J12 follow the signs for Packington and in Packington turn right for Normanton-le-Heath and Heather. The entrance to the event is situated on the right between Normaton-le-Heath and Heather, approximately 1 mile after Normanton. Shortly after passing the HUGE wind turbine on your right!

If approaching from Heather the entrance is on the left after the double bends. If you pass the HUGE wind turbine you’ve gone too far 🙂

There will be signs from the A42 and Ibstock.

Entries

Pre-Entries can be made via the BC Website, or on the day with a surcharge. Preference on the day is given to registered league riders and an on the day wait list for non league riders, depending on how many riders the commissars think the course can handle, may be in use.

It is not expected that rider number limits will be an issue at this venue though as National Trophy events have been held on it in the past and apart from some short technical sections the course will be at least 3m wide all the way round.

Course

The course is predominantly flat grassland that drains well and is expected to be “flat and fast” therefore.

There will be 2 sets of hurdles indicated by code ’03’ on the map. Both sets will be bypassed by the U12’s.

There will be a bike wash area separate to the pits and water points are available around the course.
