Last time out at Astley & Tyldesley the Men’s team event was won by South & South Wales with Ben Clarke (Ipswich) taking the win in the Elite GP match that followed. North & Scotland were the winners of the team event in the Women’s event at Hull where Lauren Hookway (Exeter) took the win in the Elite GP event which followed and Ella Case (Kesgrave) winning the Intermediate event.

If you are planning on stopping overnight the best hotel is located just off Junction 24 M4 (Coldra) which is the Premier Inn NP18 2NX. This hotel is situated right in the middle of both tracks and is only a few minutes drive to each track. It’s location is right next to a beefeater Pub where breakfast is served and also a McDonald’s
