Over the last few years NG has grown from its original roots on Airfield circuits to become second to none with our range of circuits, venues and entries. This is complemented by our vastly experienced Marshalling & Technical team. Whether you follow us to most/all venues or contribute invaluable local knowledge when we visit your favourite circuit, we are proud to have you as part of our “show” – Without your assistance there would be no racing!!!

We visit eight venues in 2018

Brands Hatch

Our season kicks off with a visit to the famous Kent circuit.  Our NG championship contenders will be keen to start their 2017 campaigns with a decent haul of points and If the last few years are anything to go by, they will have to do so amongst grids occupied by many British Championship “names” getting some early track experience prior to the BSB season

Cadwell Park

With its unique features this spectacular circuit has become a firm favourite with the NG faithful.

Pembrey

This venue always provides great racing, and continues to feature strongly in our 2018 calendar. Look out for some special feature races. As usual on Saturday evening we will provide you with an evening meal and a “free drink” at this venue.

Castle Combe

This has been by far the biggest “Club” event in the country. In 2017 the crowds and races were second only to the British Superbike series. In 2018 is sure to be one of the highlights of our season, The only two wheel racing event at Combe! Definitely not one to be missed!

Oulton Park

One of the hardest circuits to learn, Oulton is vastly popular among our racers, who annually have to “mix it” with the local Oulton “specialists” always a great day.

Snetterton 200

Yes NG is making a welcome return to this circuit, where our members will have the chance to race at this famous venue

Anglesey

Arguably one of the best rider circuits in the country, and set right on the North West coast of Wales, it is certainly the most picturesque! Come and join us for this event at Britain’s own “Philip Island”. Great excuse for a long weekend off work!

Other news

In 2018 we will continue to offer our racing members all of their favourite classes, In addition to all of our NG Championship classes, we will also continue to host the Desmo Due Ducati, Formula ProStock, Suzuki Bandit Championships, we will also host the 2 Stroke GP Championship at all of our rounds

Also look out for various other Guest classes popping up at selected events, these will include rounds of the Lansdowne Classic series, the ACU/FSRA F2 Sidecar Chanpionship and MotoE Electric Bikes.

Once again we are proud to exclusively host the ACU 250gp and 125gp National Championship.

Your support

In 2018 we are proud to continue to offer our racing members the best club championship series when it comes to the variety of top circuits, close racing and club friendly classes.

We need you to be a part of this, helping us to ensure we continue to offer all of our competitors the safest conditions and the slickest of organisations in which to compete.

In return

In 2018 NG Roadracing will to continue to provide all marshals and officials at all of our meetings with:

  • A cooked breakfast each day
  • A snack pack each day
  • A small monetary sum towards your expenses each day.
  • A “debrief” drink in the bar on the Saturday evening (when possible)
  • An action packed 20+ championship races a day!
  • Extra subsistence will be offered on Test Days

Volunteering

We understand that not everyone is available for every meeting, or in a position to travel to all venues, but no matter how many, or how few events you are able to volunteer for, you will always be made most welcome by the NG family.

Marshal training 18 March 2018

We are holding marshal training this year on the Saturday of our 2 day meeting at Brands Hatch. This is open to all experienced marshals who have not attended a training day for 3 years or more, and to all those new to marshalling.

Test days

As you will have seen from our calendar, NG are once again offering riders a Friday Test Day at Oulton, Cadwell and Anglesey.  This worked well in 2017, and we would like to thank in advance anyone who is able to assist on these days.

New marshals always needed

As NG Roadracing grows the need for more marshals increases.

Many of us started our marshalling careers by being introduced by a friend already marshalling. So look around and think if there are any folk you could introduce to the sport.

They will be sure to thank you for it, once they too discover that marshalling is what weekends were invented for.

Finally

Please complete your Availability Form and return it to Nino as soon as possible.

Ensure your details are written clearly, especially your post code and email address where available

As usual, your passes will then be sent to you a week or so prior to the date of each event you have volunteered for. If you have any questions or need to make changes to your availability, contact Nino.  We look forward to seeing you track side soon!

How do I become a road race marshal?

If you’ve ever been to a road race meeting or seen one on TV you will have seen the marshals, either removing fallen bikes and riders or giving flag signals to those who are racing.

Who are they?

All marshals have one thing in common, their interest in motorcycle racing, and they all want to be more involved than just a spectator.

Apart from this shared interest they can and do come from all walks of life, all ages over 18, and of course both sexes. (16 and over if accompanied)

How much time do they give?

A marshal is required to be on duty for the whole of practice and racing. They also attend a training day every three years.

Advantages of being a marshal

  • Working with like-minded people. Shared interest.
  • Close involvement with the action.
  • Free admission to meetings.
  • Satisfaction of doing a job critical to making racing safer.

Marshals are vital. Race meetings cannot take place without them.

How do I become a marshal and what will be expected of me?

Organisers of race meetings are always happy to welcome and train new marshals, most people start marshalling with organisations such as ours that are local to where they live, and if they wish, may go on to also marshal at top British National and International events. It is completely up to the individual as to how many meetings a year they attend. The only commitment required is that they turn up to those meetings for which they have volunteered.

Wherever you live, if you are interested in finding out more contact Nino.
