it will be my last meeting with the north road lads tonite I never raced ybs north which was a good call looking at the last few races,its a shame I remember when my grandfather raced in the early 80's their were 50 members on the north road in his club we have 18 in our club but 30 on the south ....the birdage is not their on the Scottish races though and returns have been terrible once we got over the border I think unless yer racing down the east coast nrcc then its days are numbered ...what a shame

hi daz , i think that most now want a crack at the nationals and classic racing what the south rd brings you and the pool money you get if you pool .
but being in the south or south west like we are daz then i begrudge paying £3.50 a bird in the NFC for there first 2 races to me are 124 miles and 200 miles a £1 for the clock and £2 for a marking fee what the f**k is that about i used to love racing in the NFC but not no more its becoming a very expencive hobby and what with the travling its a no go if you work full time . hope you enjoy your south rd racing daz .
