Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope that you all had a good Christmas and New Year.

As has become customary, we have had our Christmas Charity Uplift at Hopton between Christmas and New Year.

On Friday 30th of December, we had 115 riders turn up and brave the cold and the rain to ride. As usual at Hopton the tracks held up well but it was sloppy. But we expect that in December, so it was hardly a surprise.

We use this event to help support the communities who support (put up with) our events and Kinsham, Hopton, Bringewood, Bucknell and Rhyd y Felin.

These communities have each chosen charities for us to donate to. These charities are: Kinsham Village Hall - Kinsham, Hopton Castle Church & Bedstone Village Hall - Hopton, Downton Castle Church - Bringewood, Bucknell Playing Field Association - Bucknell,  Llangynog Memorial Hall - Rhyd y Felin.

Finally and crucially, both the Welsh and English Air Ambulance Services who I'm sure you will all agree that we are indebted to many times over. Over the course of the year, we have also collected a further £1000 for the Air Ambulance from uplift donations for the track walk at each race.

Thank you everyone who attended the uplift and who has donated at our races throughout the year.
