Upcoming events

SVR autumn steam gala - 21st to 24th September inc - This event really needs no introduction. As usual it will feature a number of the home fleet as well as visiting locos from other preservation societies from across the UK. If steam locos are your thing this is as good as anywhere to go and see these magnificent works of engineering.

October 1st - The second meeting of the season for grasstrack racing being hosted by the Bewdley MCC. The first event of the year proved to be full of action as the races and riders fell (a few literally) throughout the day to climax with a series of highly charged finals. This is no easy sport to master and requires some very good motorbike handling skills to avoid being thrown by the track surface.

Barmouth Beach MotoX - 28 & 29th October. Featuring quads and motoX bikes racing over a predetermined course laid out on the sands of Barmouth this ought to be a high adrenaline weekend of fun, racing and ooops moments if my experience at the Kent beach races is anything to go by.
