it is NOT possible to register or pay at any track or at any round.

Round 1, next Sunday week, is being held at Crccc. A completely new layout from last year, more technical circuit than seen previously at Cork. All dirt with timber jumps and features. Tyre choice will be a critical on this truly off road track. The facilities have been upgraded again this year with the addition of a watering system, giving the organisers more control over the surface. Running water, air line and toilet facilities are available on site; there is no mains power at the track.
