2019 event confirmed. 25th November
The eleventh edition of the Vets MXdN is confirmed for the weekend of the 7th and 8th September at Farleigh Castle.
There will only be nine classes in 2019 and these will be announced before the end of the year. It is also planned to make some changes to the format of the Team Races and the age limits will be standardised to eliminate the confusion from the 2018 event. Further details will be posted here by the end of December.
We are already aware that some new Teams will be joining us in September.
Although the cost of promoting the event has risen year by year the entry fees will remain the same for the third year running although there will be a strictly enforced admin fee for amendments or alterations to entries.
As usual, Registrations will open on February 1st with both on line and postal applications.
Post Race Report.
By fielding a race winner in six motos Team USA dominated the Vets MXdN Team races in the tenth edition of this classic event. Mike Brown won four of the Twinshock Team races and backed this up with two moto wins in the Evo races. Kurt Nicoll riding for Team England delighted the patriotic fans who lined the 1700 metre circuit with a moto win and backed this up with a second and third in the EVO races. Billy MacKenzie won the final moto.
With two motos each day in both classes, the strong USA squad took an early advantage by packing the three score counting riders into the top six places in every moto whilst past winners Germany kept in touch in the Twinshock class before fading on day two. The England team were always in contention in the EVO races with Nicoll posting top three spots except for a charge from last to eleventh in the third moto.
Results - EVO 1st USA, 2nd England, 3rd Belgium, 4th Wales.
Twinshock Class - 1st USA, 2nd Germany, 3rd Luxembourg, 4th England.
USA clean up at tenth Vets MXdN
Despite Ivan Tedesco having two low scoring rides, the USA team dominated the tenth edition of the event at the weekend in front of a large audience at the iconic Farleigh Castle venue. In fine weather, on a well prepared sun kissed circuit, the remaining Team of Mike Brown, Doug Dubach and John Dowd recorded a double by winning both the EVO and Twinshock Team races.
Race fans lined the circuit perimeter to cheer on the UK teams but they were unable to repeat their success of last year.
Riding for Scotland, Billy MacKenzie made a UK return to racing and also doubled up in the Super Evo class which he won comfortably after a last to first dash in the final moto which also earned him the Man of the meeting award.
