Marks Tey Meeting Report - 27th May 2018

Roy Patten & John Waylett Meeting

Sunshine and perfect race conditions welcomed the eighty solo’s and eight outfits to this annual event at Marks Tey on Sunday. Club Chairman Dave Godley elected to complete some judicious watering the evening prior while those staying overnight witnessed an electrical storm of almost biblical proportions lighting the entire skyline for a good half hour or so.

Due to grading having taken place earlier in the week a course avoiding most of the worn sections resulted in the majority of it being covered in a thick layer of winter grass which assisted in the dissipation of much of the overnight rainfall. With several of the table tops left out there remained just three jumps and a ditch to negotiate alongside the usual lumps and bumps for which the circuit has in abundance. Unusually the start straight was set running parallel to the the pit lane and wove it’s way between tabletops to the far end of the circuit before returning through the ditch, taking a right hander onto a sweeping 180 degree 3rd gear left hander to a tight 90 degree right hander and over the finish line before a similar left hander saw riders back onto the start straight again.

The Coming Season!

With thoughts on the coming season it could well be a busy time once April arrives. Along with our own events at Marks Tey and Maylandsea is the Northampton Clubs meeting in between at Sproxton. Then, less than a week following Maylandsea, is the 2 day event at Mortimer taking in the 100 miler on Saturday 6th May, making it four weekends in a row for some.

Website Outage

Sorry about the website being unavailable today, Monday, without a word of warning.  This was because of a typo in a postcode from over a decade ago being picked up by Nominet (the DVLA of UK internet domain names) causing them to trigger a suspension of the pre65.co.uk domain till it was rectfied to their satisfaction.

Thanks to Lesley being ever on call 24/7 we were able to correct the situation in just under 12 hours from when it first became apparent.

Oh what a tangled web...

Number Plate Colours

Further to the classics meeting at the AMCA on 18th November we have been asked to enforce the number plate colouring on your bikes from the first meeting next year (18th March) giving you plenty of time to get it right.

The colours are:

  • Pre 60 bikes -  white background with black numbers 
  • Pre 65 bikes -   black background with white numbers 
  • Pre74 bikes (1965-1973) -  red background with white numbers 

This is as per the rule book. We will be checking at scrutineering in March.

Website Registrations

There are still some folk out there who have reregistered here on the Pre-65 Club website but for some reason haven't yet logged in.

This is probably due to the activation email sent to you getting lost somewhere  /  sent to spam folder (dig it out and white list it) / or the email address entered was incorrect - and for anyone with an AOL email address it would never have gotten to you due to an AOL quirk.

I have manually activated the following list of folk so anyone spotting themselves please try logging in with the details you entered when registering.
