Riders have the option of submitting entry forms by post or by email to Helen, or by using the on-line booking system accessed again via the Downloads section (this is Helen’s preferred method). Entry fees are payable at the time of entering either by bank transfer, cheque or paypal.

GARAGES

Garages will be available via advance booking only. Please do not ring or message Race Administration (Helen) for garage allocation. A garage booking form which is available in the downloads section of the Clubs website must be completed in full to be considered for a garage. Garages will be allocated on a first come first served basis i.e. the first forms received until all garages are allocated.

CLUB MEMBERSHIPS & NEW ACU ON-LINE LICENCING SYSTEM

Club membership forms for 2024 can be downloaded from the Downloads section on the Club website, and we would urge all members, and especially riders to re-join as soon as possible, so that licences can be applied for and received in good time for the start of the 2024 season.


Last year the ACU introduced a new Members’ System & Club Management Platform in conjunction with Sport80, and once again this year riders and licenced officials will still have to join an ACU affiliated club (hopefully Wirral Hundred) before their licences can be issued, and the ACU will contact the club (Helen in our case) to confirm that the membership is valid. Once this is confirmed, the individuals will receive an e-licence for their smartphone; alternatively, a PDF version of the licence will be provided to be downloaded and printed off. Plastic licences will no longer be used. Please note there is no longer a 9-digit code for renewing your ACU licence.


Helen would be pleased to assist anyone experiencing problems in obtaining their licence – she can be contacted on 07936 098723 or via email hsmith.w100mc@yahoo.com.


ANNUAL DINNER & PRESENTATION OF AWARDS 

The Clubs Award Ceremony was held on the 27th January at the Holiday Inn, Ellesmere Port. A fabulous night was had by all and the winners including the guest speaker partied to the early hours – it got the W100 year off to a great and encouraging start. Thank you to all those who attended the occasion. Many willingly travelled long distances to be there which served as a reminder to us all just how wonderful our supporters and members are.

Thank you to David, Abbi, Helen, Dave and Lyn who made the evening happen, to Dominic Herberston our guest speaker and to our friends at Trackday Comps who provided all award winners with a voucher.


NEW COMPETITOR TRAINING & RIDING ASSESSMENT COURSES – Thursday 28th March (by Zoom) & Sunday 31st March 

The ACU rules require that new riders to road racing and anyone wishing to re-start racing after an absence of five years or more must attend a classroom-based course (CTC).

Unless he or she can prove they’ve held a Clubman’s or National licence previously, they must also be assessed on-track for their basic riding competence (BRA), before being granted a road race licence. To facilitate this, the club intends to run a Zoom-based CTC on Thursday evening 28th March and a BRA in conjunction with its Test Day at Anglesey on Sunday 31st of March. The fee for the combined course / individual courses will be shared in the new year.

Anyone wishing to obtain more details should contact Helen on 07936 098723; email: hsmith.w100mc@yahoo.com.

It is expected that a booking form for the course will be available in the Downloads section of the Club website in early January.

A NOTE FROM OUR NEW CHIEF MARSHAL

Hello everyone, I thought I should introduce myself, as I have taken up the role of Chief Marshal for The WIRRAL HUNDRED Motor Club

My name is Angela Jacques, many may know me from marshalling with other clubs, so you may want to skip the next part.

However, those that do not, I have been marshalling since the early 70s both circuits and roads. I have marshaled with all the clubs that have been, and still are around. I have done the TT and Irish Roads and of course Olivers Mount, along with this I have marshaled SuperMoto. I currently marshal with Racesafe, Olivers Mount and all the clubs, when time allows.

I assisted the Chief Marshal for TSGB for 7 years and for 2 years was the Chief Marshal for Norasport at their Cadwell Park meeting.

I know I have the full support of the Wirral 100 officials and of course Dave Edwards, who will, still be around with his other club duties.

I look forward to meeting you all and hope you will be gentle with me till I get to know you all.

I will be contacting everyone via email in the next few weeks.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, problems, and suggestions, I am here to listen and learn.
