Ipswich Regional 17.05.15

A big thank you from Ipswich BMX Club to those who attended our round of the EA Regional BMX Series today. The turnout was good & it was nice to see so many happy faces.
The weather was kind & even the wind helped push riders down the first & third straights. Thanks to the hard work of the clubs volunteers the track was running smooth – if a little slick in the first & last berms!
We’d like to show our appreciation to Copella for providing free samples of their excellent fruit juices again & to Jools & Miles who were good value on the mike.
Apologies to those of you who received a misprinted programme, plans are afoot to have colour printed one’s for our next race.
The next round of the series is on 31st May at Peterborough. The next race at Ipswich is our Summer Series on Tuesday 26th May (registration closes at 6.30pm). Practice/coaching continues this Tuesday evening.
More photos can be found on our facebook page which will will be added to in the coming hours & days by Robbie Goodman.
