CLUB NEWS: Hethersett announce anniversary day

HETHERSETT HAWKS / YELLOW BRICK MORTGAGES have announced the date of their 55h Anniversary Celebration Day – Sunday September 19th. The day will also feature the Breckland Autos Hethersett Charity Cup, one of the longest running invitation events. As regular racing is still very much scarce for some it has been decided to open up the invitations to everyone in the UK who is aged 13 or above so any rider who is interested please contact the Club at

The format for the day will start at 10 a.m. with the first four hours open for a reunion of ex-riders with some ad hoc racing challenges and novelty competitions. The Club looks forward to seeing lots of ex-members to come help the celebrations. At 2 p.m. the Club’s Under-13 riders take to the track for a special handicap event based on age – a chance for everyone to see the full range of our successful youth set-up. The Charity Cup will commence at 4 p.m.

All proceeds from the day will be shared between the Orchid Charity (male prostrate cancer charity supported by the Eurovets series) and the Hawks own Development Fund planning improved facilities at the track.

The Club staged a successful Open Day on Friday 13th August as part of British Cycling’s Lets Ride Campaign. The track was very busy throughout the five hours, both with current members and a large number of people of all ages having a taster session – some stayed much longer than intended as they were enjoying it so much.
