Hi everyone, well, as they say, that’s a wrap for the Earlystocks 2023 season. 🏁
Very well done to everyone who has participated in our meetings this season, even though the weather has at numerous times tried it’s best to put us off.
Many Thanks to all those people who have also helped us out in various ways with the running of the club throughout the season, it really has been appreciated. There have been so many people helping so it’s impossible to name everyone. I’m not going to even start naming people as I will inevitably miss someone out, but you know who you are.
I have to say a huge congratulations to all our awards winners: -
🏆 Winner – Gavin Bird, Runner up – John Brush & 3rd place - Stu Poulton.
🏆 Winner – John Adamson, Runner Up – Ivan Childs & 3rd Place - Mark Whorton.
🏆 Winner – Steve Hampton, Runner Up - Mark Bostock & 3rd Place - Paul Johnson.
Unusually all the above also finished in the same order for the Earlystocks - BHR Championship. This was possibly affected by the unfortunate cancellation of the Aintree meeting.
For those of you who like to study the points totals I have also attached a copy of the final championship points tables.
Class 3 certainly went down to the very last race at Cadwell & it was great to see, no one was prepared to give an inch in that last race & it was a super effort by all concerned. It was also great to see that so many riders competed in the last race as well even though it was a very late finish for us.
We hope to see all our above awards winners at the Earlystocks presentation evening which is on Sat 14th Oct at the Saracens Head, Stafford Road, Weston, Stafford.
As regards the BHR awards evening this is on Sat 25th Nov 2023 at the Mercure Daventry Court Hotel, Sedgemoor Way, Daventry, NN11 0SG Tel 01327 307000.
Hotel Room rates are:-
Single £75 inc Breakfast, or a Double/twin £85 incl Breakfast.
To get these rates you must phone the hotel direct & inform them of the special rates stating that you are with British Historic Racing Evening Event.
The Dinner & dance is 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Tickets for the dinner dance is £38 each.
For those of you attending Daventry there is also a BHR AGM at 1pm on the Saturday as well. I understand there may be a lot of changes being proposed at this AGM & this is your chance to vote on these possible changes which could affect the future of the BHR Club. I know AGM’s are not most peoples cup of tea but it would be great if a few other Earlystockers other than myself & Steve attend to put our views forward on certain matters as this could also affect the Earlystocks races.
As I understand it BHR will be contacting all awards winners over the coming weeks so please look out for a confirmation email from BHR.
I am currently working on the 2024 season with regards to both machine regs & with regards to which organising clubs we are proposing to run with next season.
Machine regulations will be released in the next 10 days & I will release details of which clubs we hope to run with next season in due course.
Finally I hope that everyone who has had an unfortunate off this season is recovering well & we hope to see you again on track next season.
That’s it for now folks,
Any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
SecretaryEarlystocks Racing Club.
Earlystocks Racing Club. ( Classic, Post Classic and Modern Classic Racing Motorcycles).
This is a club for those of who remember when bikes were bikes and not all covered in plastic.
Catering basically for road based production machines manufactured pre 1987. Air cooled engines with carburettors, twin rear shocks. Old school technology where spanners count for more than computers.
Monoshock machines also now catered for.
We allow some modifications to make it easier to get better tyres than the old canvas things they used back then.
Tuning the supension and engines to give more power and handle better than they were built to back in the day.
Being one of the cheapest forms of racing it is becoming more popular, especially when compared to the cost of racing a supersports or superbike, where the price of a weekends tyres for a superbike would cover about a 3rd of a seaons racing on and Earlystocker.
The racing on track is just as good but back in the paddock it is more social and everybody will help you if you have a problem.
If you've ever said to yourself "I'd love to have a go at racing" come on and give it a go or come along to some of the tracks and talk to us.
You'll be glad you did.
Want to race on a lower budget without having to purchase a full Race Frame & Tyre Warmers etc, then look no further.
Earlystocks is a Club run by Racers for Racers.
