Once again, the Club Championship will be contested over eight rounds, including two ‘double header’ weekends in July and October.

Saturday’s Test Day will get underway at 9am before round one of the DMMCRRC Championship takes place on Sunday with a number of local riders taking part as well as plenty of Darley Moor regulars, champions (both reigning and former champions) and even a multiple Stars at Darley winner.

David Bradley from Matlock is the reigning and multiple Classic & Forgotten Era 1300cc Champion and will be defending his title once more, as will Chesterfield’s Mark Brailsford, the reigning and multiple Honda CB500 & Suzuki Bandit Champion.
