Change of Race Day format For Matterley
Due to the popularity of Matterley we have made the decision to split the race into a 2.5 hour morning race for the slower classes and an early afternoon 2.5 hour race for the faster classes.

This will make the racing much safer and more enjoyable. We will finalise which classes in each race once we have finalised numbers next week.

If by any chance you don’t fancy the split race format, please email us at office@trackntrail.co.uk and will give your place to another rider.

For the race day please make sure you have an ACU Stamp on your Helmet this will be checked at scrutineering.

Important - Please remember conditions of entry If you do not turn up and pay for the event you will still be invoiced for the full race fee. If for some reason you can’t make the race we need at least four days notes to cancel your race entry without charge. We do have a waiting list for this event so please inform us asap if you cannot attend and we can then offer your place to someone else. Remember the cut off for withdrawing and not getting charged is Thursday 22nd Feb.

We will email you final instructions Friday before the event at the latest. Please do not ring for further information or numbers. We will update all riders by email next week.

Track Description:
We have been privileged to have had the use of this land for over eight years.
And each time we visit this outstanding track we bring in extra areas so it just gets better and better!

The Matterley Estate offers many woodland areas to give a superb flowing race track.
Although we are not using the GP motor cross track, as it's defiantly not suitable for Club level Enduro riders! We do have some of the best areas of the estate with lots of elevation and plenty of character including plenty of wooded areas spread across the landscape.

This venue has great parking. The ride starts with a stubble field to sort out the riders pecking order then leading in and out of many wooded areas. Most of the track will be designed very wide for great overtake opportunities with much of it marked out like a huge scramble track.
