Stephen Kelly KX500 at Killough Photographer Ian Boyd
It looked like a good days racing near Ardglass on Sunday, thanks to all the helpers at the race and throughout the season, the faithful flag marshals, medics, officials, landowners, track builders, track disassemblers and caterer.
Great entry of riders on a cold November day, it was very kind of landowner Philip Hamilton letting us use his land and towing vans in and out, also Heather Bishop doing Club Stewart the last couple of events and really helping in the paddock riding issue. Special thanks to Laurence & family, Wesley, Peter, Gerard, Marcel, Tadg, Stephen & David Russell, FastPhil & young Phil, Kevin & John, Jim Boyd, Stephen & Brett Kelly, Ivan Cairns, Norma, Darren, Jamie, Louise and anyone who helped.
The new season starts in a few weeks on the 1st January so not long to go, we should have the list of 2018 dates late December.
Next club meeting is Tuesday evening 7th Nov at the Templeton Hotel, Templepatrick from 8pm, if you want to let us know how we could improve the racing for next year come and say your piece and we will listen.

Parents permission for under 18 year olds. Click here to download parent authorizing form.
In racing, under MRA rules, a parent must always accompany their child or children, (anyone under 18), to their race day and be with them all day. However in the event that this is not possible either one of the parents must put in writing their permission for another adult to act as their guardian for the day. This must be done in writing and the Parental authorizing form must be presented at each race day that this applies to. No written permission from the parent will mean a child will not be allowed to race.Please help us get it right on the day and fill the form in if it applies to you.
Riders competing at MRA run youth events must have a current license from either the MRA or the Southern Center. A day license is at a cost of £10.00 for adults and new for 2017 is £5 for youth riders. A day license can only be obtained by a youth rider if they bring proof of their date of Birth i.e. a passport, original birth certificate or a license from another recognized governing body.
