The home of racing in the South West
Woodlands winter series round 5
We have just officially added a ROUND 5 to the Winter series.
Ye I can hear what your saying, it's no longer the winter. But this round will count towards the Winter Series overall standings.
It is also a charity race in aid of "CANCER RESEARCH UK" and for this very reason we will be donating £10.00 for every riders entry fee.
We would love it if we could break the 150 rider mark and if we could touch the 175 mark that would be even better as this is a charity that will eventually help someone we know or simply talk to in the street at some point in our lives.
For more info and to enter please follow the link to the calendar to the left.
2014 Southwest Champs.
Due to all sorts of reasons we are not holding the South West Champs at Gawton as previously stated. But it will remain on the 11th-13th of July and will still be a two day stage race. But it will be held at Woodlands, Don't dispare though as we will return to Gawton for 2015 and bigger and better. So for more info please visit the Southwest Champs page.

BC POINTS FOR OUR 2013-2014 RACES
Due to the reintroduction of priority entries controlled by points for the British Downhill Series when entries go live this year "2013-2014", it is anticipated by us that it is a possibility that the priority entry system will also be opperating the following year "2014-2015"too. So as a result we will be offering BC ranking points for ALL Rounds of the Woodlands Winter Series being held in 2013-2014. The south west Champs will be double regional A points as it's a regional Championship race. This is all to enable riders to start collecting points for the 2015 British Downhill Series early.

DIG DAYS AND TRACK CONSTRUCTION
We have regular dig days at Woodlands and apreciate all the help we can get.
We have just been given permission to use the top section of the Woods where we already have two track extension lines. Which now means a possibility of a large start ramp being constructed right at the top of the new area making the race lines longer and giving more pace for the flatter top sections. Once the new start ramp has been constructed we will be putting on several dig days, so if your available to dig and your up for making the race series even better than last year please keep an eye on our face book page as we will add and event invite for all dig days at least 14 days before each one to give anyone interested time to plan things.
If your up for digging or just interested in whats coming up then checkout our FACEBOOK page.
Thanks for taking the time to read this section and we hope some of you will be able to help us.
Well everyone else is doing it, So why not us?
2014 will hopefully see the arrival of a one off weekend of DH Enduro racing at Woodlands where downs are awesome and the ups are easy!
Possible dates are now on the RACE CALENDAR.
Once confirmed the Event will be added to the BC entry system.
So keep them eyes peeled gang.
