Winter Track League runs for 11 weeks (with a break for Christmas), and will be a 4 league format. Each league comprises of a 5 race programme, including Scratch, Points, an Elimination Race and two others - as in previous years, the exact details will vary each week. All riders must sign in from 18:00 until 18:40, then attend the Riders Briefing at 18:45. Racing starts immediately after. The Riders Briefing is compulsory, so we advise you to arrive in good time. Riders are welcome to enter as many weeks as they wish, and a trophy will be awards to winners of each league attending a minimum of six evenings of racing.
Winter Track League is a Regional C event, with no ranking points for the overall series.
Masters League will be open to all riders aged 35+ (any age for adult female riders), and ideal for those who regularly ride SQT or Vets sessions.
C League is a Youth League for riders beginning their racing career in U14 and U16 categories. U12s may become accredited and enter the Youth League in exceptional circumstances.
B League is for strong Youth Riders in A & B League, as well as juniors and seniors looking to improve their skills and fitness in order to move into A League. Inexperienced Youth Riders will be expected to start in C League.
A League is for strong and skillful riders from Youth A, Juniors and Seniors.
For all Track Leagues: Accredited riders only.
