Road Championship Starts at Oliver’s Mount

A number of Championships have been put together by PMH Promotions after requests by many Road Racers who can’t afford to do the short circuit Championships. The first one has been run successfully for 2 years by the Auto 66 Club and for 2015 becomes the “UK Road and Track Championship” with rounds at Oliver’s Mount, Armoy in Ireland, the Southern 100 in the Isle of Man and the Ulster Grand Prix, counting towards this Championship.

The Championship is being supported by Silkolene and Bridgstone and will cater for Super Lightweights ie minitwins etc – Junior 600ccs and Senior 700cc-1100cc classes. There will be 14 rounds with 12 to count and there is already £1000 in the pot for the end of season Champions with hopefully more to come.

Another new Championship being run at the request of many riders and entrants is the UK Classic F1 and F2. These events will be run at Oliver’s Mount and Cadwell Park with 2 rounds at each meeting. The formula for the classes is the same as the Classic TT regulations which can be found on the Isle of Man webpage.

Already there is £2500 in the kitty for the end of season prize fund and talks are carrying on with a possible sponsor to increase this series.

The Sidecars have not been forgotten – work is in progress to put together Formula 2 Road Masters Series. More details on this in the next few weeks.

UK Road and Track Race Championship continues in 2015

The Auto 66 and PMH Promotions Ltd have spent quite a few months formulating a championship using figures from the last two years where the championship has been run on a lower scale. For 2015, Fuchs Silkolene will be supporting the series which will be run over 14 rounds with the riders’ best 12 to count towards the series.

The proposed rounds are :

Cadwell Park               21st – 22nd March 2015

Oliver’s Mount            11th – 12th April 2015

Southern 100                6th – 9th July 2015

Oliver’s Mount            18th – 19th July 2015

Armoy                             25th July 2015

Ulster Grand Prix       8th August 2015

Oliver’s Mount            12th – 13th September 2015

Cadwell Park               24th – 25th October 2015

There will be 3 classes in the championship:

Super Lightweight ( 400cc – 650cc twin cylinder 4 stroke machines – Supertwin and Minitwin)

Junior 600cc (600cc 4 cylinder 4 stroke, 675cc 3 cylinder 4 stroke, 750cc 2 cylinder 4 stroke machines)

Senior (700cc to 1100cc)


With over £3000 in cash plus trophies at the end of the series, it is hoped the championship will be well supported as it has been designed to support the Read Road Race supporters and mid field riders who can’t afford to do the National and International championships on shorter circuits.

New classic bike championship for F 1 and F 2 Motorcycles

After many requests from sponsors, Auto 66 Club and PMH Promotions Ltd have put together the UK F1 and F2 series for 2015. The event will be run over 11 rounds, with the best 10 to count. Riders may also use the Classic TT towards their points which will be given after they have submitted their result in the event, as this is a stand-alone event and does not come under our possible sponsorship deals.

Classic Formula 1

Up to 1300cc, air cooled 4-stroke machines 01/01/1973 – 31/12/1986

Up to 1300cc, liquid/air cooled 4-stroke machines 01/01/1973 – 31/12/1986

700cc – 750cc 4-stroke, 4 cylinder machines 01/01/1987 – 31/12/1992

Up to 1000cc 4-stroke, 2 & 3 cylinder machines and Norton rotary-engined machines

Up to 600cc 4-stroke, 4 cylinder machines 01/01/1973 – 31/12/1986

126cc-350cc 2 stroke machines 01/01/1968 – 31/12/1992

Prize money will be set by the organizing clubs but the promoters have set aside £3000 minimum for the end of series top three in each class including trophies.

Supplementary regulations for most of the meetings will be available in the next couple of weeks by contacting the circuit office on 01723 373000 or

2014 Gala Awards Dinner

Another successful evening was had by all at the 47th annual presentation awards dinner at the Holiday Inn York. Again the event was a total sell out

and it is hoped to use the same venue again next year.

Peter Duke was our guest , Peter is the son of the legendary Geoff Duke and

managing director of Duke Marketing who make the videos and DVDs that are

sold around the world.

The first lot of presentation were the Hill Climbs, the trophies were presented by Dr Justin Mhaka. Then came the Northern Clubmans Championships which were presented by Jonathan Milner, Jonathan who is a real enthusiast has provided machinery for a number of riders in the past and looks after the clubs radios and PA systems.

The final awards of the evening for the Road and Track were given by Peter Duke, rounding of the presentations was the Geoff Duke Trophy which went to the winner of the Duke Rankings Championship and for the first time in its history went to an englishman , no other than the clubs own James Cowton, James also picked up the Lee Vernon Trophy for the UK Supertwin Championship.

Then came the big surprise of the evening when Peter Hillaby was called to the stage to receive the Dave Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award from Motorcycle News. It seems as though it was Jamie Whitham and Carl Fogartys comments that helped the MCN team make the decision.
