ANGLESEY CLASSIC BIKE PARADES – Saturday & Sunday, 22nd & 23rd June 

After a year’s rest, we are made a late decision to resurrect these Classic Bike Parades to run within our race meeting this weekend in June – on the Coastal Circuit on the Saturday and the International Circuit on the Sunday. Run under the ACU’s Regulations for Classic Parades (PR6), riders under 70 must hold an ACU Road Race or Parade Licence or a Class A DVLA motorcycle licence. Riders over 70 must hold either an ACU Road Race or Parade Licence. The two-day cost of the Parades is £60 (£40 for one day).

OULTON PARK – Saturday 27th April 

A report on this memorably wet race meeting appears in the Reports section of the website; the updated Championship Points are set out in the Downloads section.

2019 CLASSES AND RACE FORMATS


The W100 classes planned for 2019 are broadly unchanged from 2018 and are as follows:


1. Powerbikes – machines over 700cc, with no tyre restrictions.

2. Pre-Electronics Powerbikes – machines over 700cc, produced in the period 1998 – 2008, with no electronic aids, such as engine maps, traction control, launch control or anti-lock brakes, and with standard cdi’s for ignition control. Quick shifters and Power Commanders (or similar) are allowed. No tyre restrictions.

3. Formula 600

4. 650 Twins.

5. 100 – 500cc Allcomers, with no tyre restrictions.

6. Pre-Injection 501-1300cc (ie machines over 500cc with a carburettor)

7. Golden Era Supersport – pre-2001 Supersport machines (600cc 4-cylinder & 750cc 2-cylinder), including later versions if the models remained basically unchanged.

8. Forgotten Era - pre-1991 and up to 500cc, including Classics Bikes

9. Open Sidecars

10. Senior Open – ie second classes for Powerbikes & national / clubman 600’s (Anglesey events only)

11. Junior Open – ie second classes for 100–500cc Allcomers, 650 Twins, Forgotten Era, & novice-licence 600’s (Anglesey events only)


At Anglesey all solo riders will, as last year, be able to identify at least two classes to compete in, if they so wish. Again as last year, the Senior and Lightweight Open races will have one race per day, whilst all other classes will have two races per day.


Support - We ask riders to continue to support us and to race with us whenever they can - and of course to encourage others to do likewise. Likewise we continue to rely heavily on the ongoing support of marshals and officials. Thank you.


GUEST CLASSES


ACU & FSRA Sidecar Championships


For the 13th year in succession we are again delighted to be hosting a round of the ACU/FSRA British Formula 2 Sidecar championships at Anglesey in August; also rounds of the increasingly popular FSRA Pre-injection Sidecar championships at Oulton Park in April and at Anglesey in October.


GP Originals


For the first time, we will be hosting a round of the GP Originals series at Oulton Park. This series is a big boost for post-classic enthusiasts and is for 2-stroke GP machines manufactured in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Full details of the series, eligibility and the technical regulations are available at www.gporiginals.co.uk.


Earlystocks Racing Club Championship


For the fourth year running we are also hosting rounds of this championship (for pre-1987 machines); the riders will be back with us again at Oulton Park in April and at Anglesey in June. Further information on this series can be found at www.earlystocks.co.uk


David Swallow Memorial Race


This race for single-cylinder classic bikes will again be run at the Oulton Park meeting in April. With the continuing support and encouragement of Bill Swallow and with no obvious date clashes this year, there is every prospect of a full grid.



SPONSORS

We are delighted to report that our main 2018 sponsor will again be supporting us in 2019:

PAUL BLAND MOTORSPORT 

has for the past few years sponsored the awards for the Formula 600 class and the ‘Anglesey Grand’. As previously they will continue to provide the paddock tyre supply and fitting service at all of our meetings. Paul Bland is based at Gaerwen on Anglesey and in addition to the provision and fitting of tyres provides a full range of motorcycle workshop and dyno services. Their website is www.paulblandmotorsport.com, telephone number 01248 422477. Please give them your support.

CARL ROBERTS RACING / EMJESS RACING

have come on board for 2019 as the trophy sponsors for the Powerbikes class. Now resident in the Isle of Man, Carl is a former W100 committee member, racer, and trials observer, and still contributing, alongside his Manx and Irish connections, to the well-being of the Club. We thank him sincerely.

Sponsorship opportunities We will of course be delighted to hear from other organisations interested in supporting any of our championship classes as trophy sponsors – just £60 per event (£300 for the season) and the championship title is yours.

MARSHALS’ AND OFFICIALS’ RECRUITMENT

Racing cannot take place unless we have sufficient marshals and officials, and we are always keen to recruit newcomers, male or female, experienced or not experienced. You may already attend our race meetings and wish to get more involved. Don’t be shy, step forward - you will be made to feel very welcome and, if marshalling is your aim, you will be properly trained in the various safety aspects. Anyone interested in joining the team should contact Dave Edwards, the Club’s Chairman and Chief Marshal (contact details below), or any officer or committee member. Thank you.
