Sounds really good that people are putting a serious effot into DH racing

£15!! thats really good money!

I guess there's no uplift though :/

but still really good value for money

not sure where you got £15 from. Entry fee is £22 per event or £80 if you book all four events at once, and we still think it's good value for money. Yes its push-up we don't run an up-lift service at Tavi Woodlands (only Gawton), however the Tavi Woodlands push-up is not hard. To operate an up-lift you would have to at least double the entry fee! With all the rules & regulations the race organisers have to abide by its incredible how expensive it is to run races and up-lifts are even more expensive!

how come there are no events being hosted at Gawton? which in my opinion is a much better venue to hold a race. or are there problems involved that i fail to see? ::)

cheers

do you mean apart from lack of parking, lack of finish arena, difficulty of running a full-scale uplift. etc etc.

we will race at gawton but there is plenty that needs sorting first.

...and most importantly we have to negotiate Landowner permission to run races!
We have reached an agreement with our Tavi Woodlands Landowner and we are currently renegotiating our lease and working on race permissions with out Gawton Downhill Landowner. The agreement should be finalised early in the new year (I hope). So, if the Tavi-Woodlands short-course DH race series is successful we would then be looking to organise a Gawton Downhill series later in 2010. So if you want to race at Gawton, make sure that our Tavi-Woodlands series is a success by entering it...
