The home of racing in the South West
Its that time again the Winter Series is coming!!
The 2014-2015 winter Series is here again.
This series will be have five rounds and will be starting on the revamped "Scotsman".
Well have no fear we are going to clear an alternate line around that bomb hole down the bottom so you don't have to get off and walk around it this year.
The full series dates are as follows:
Round 1, November 2nd 2014.
Round 2, December 7th 2014.
If you still need points to enter the BDS in 2015 then it is very important that if you enter Rounds 1 or 2 you must give varify BC number at signon to avoid missing out on the points!!
Round 3, February 1st 2015.
Round 4, March 1st 2015.
Round 5, April 6th 2015.
For more info when it is available or to enter any of the above races please go to the Race Calender.
2015 Southwest Champs.
The Southwest Champs will return to Gawton for 2015.
But it will yet again be a little different to previous years.
Due to all the hassle and finaces involved in uplifting aour small races at Gawton this years race will be a Push Up race.
We will also be holding the event as a single day event using the same format as our winter series races, practice in the morning and race in the afternoon.
LOCAL WEATHER INFORMATION
BC POINTS FOR OUR 2014-2015 RACES
Due to the reintroduction of priority entries controlled by points for the British Downhill Series when entries go live this year "2014-2015", it is anticipated by us that it is a possibility that the priority entry system will also be opperating the following year "2015-2016"too. So as a result we will be offering BC ranking points for ALL Rounds of the Woodlands Winter Series being held in 2014-2015. The south west Champs will be double regional A points as it's a regional Championship race. This is all to enable riders to start collecting points for the 2016 British Downhill Series early.
DIG DAYS AND TRACK CONSTRUCTION
We have regular dig days at Woodlands and apreciate all the help we can get.
We have just been given permission to use the top section of the Woods where we already have two track extension lines. Which now means a possibility of a large start ramp being constructed right at the top of the new area making the race lines longer and giving more pace for the flatter top sections. Once the new start ramp has been constructed we will be putting on several dig days, so if your available to dig and your up for making the race series even better than last year please keep an eye on our face book page as we will add and event invite for all dig days at least 14 days before each one to give anyone interested time to plan things.
If your up for digging or just interested in whats coming up then checkout our FACEBOOK page.
Thanks for taking the time to read this section and we hope some of you will be able to help us.
Well everyone else is doing it, So why not us?
2015 will definitely see the arrival of a one off weekend of DH Enduro racing at Woodlands where downs are awesome and the ups are easy!
Possible dates will eventually be on the RACE CALENDAR.
Once confirmed the Event will be added to the BC entry system.
So keep them eyes peeled gang.
Marshals for any of our 2014-2015 single day pushup races will be paid £25.00 and a £5.00 food voucher for lunch. Unless you are paying for someones entry, and if this is the case please contact Chaz so the payment system can be adjusted.

For now though I would like to say a very big thankyou to all of you who have volunteered and helped at all of our past events as without you it wouldn't have happened at all.
