The Wiggle Project 2018 Race Series returns for a bumper weekend of racing this month with the Towy Riders/TRCC Circuit Race and the Newport Youth Omnium on 15 and 16 June.
Ffos Las Race Course, Carmarthenshire will be home to round eight of the Wiggle Project 2018 Race series as Towy Riders and TRCC host an exciting day of circuit racing. Youth A-E riders will compete on a tarmac circuit using the spectators areas, car park and private road network around Ffos Las.
Sign on and bike check will open on Saturday 15 June at 9.00am. Racing will start promptly at 10.00am. There will also be races for the E/1/2 and 3/4 from 1.00pm for the seniors to all experience racing at this new venue.
This is the first time Ffos Las is to be used as a racing venue. A circuit has been designed which is split between fast sections and tight twisty areas. Bike handling and cornering skills will be as important as speed.
The start and finish area is infront of the main grandstand, which will offer a superb viewing area, and shelter if it rains. There is parking available onsite along with refreshments and changing facilities.
Event organiser Andrew Smith, Towy Riders said: “We are all looking forward to hosting a second round of the Wiggle Project 2018 Race Series here in Carmarthenshire, and at a new venue. Ffos Las will provide the riders with a new circuit and new challenges, which will provide an exciting day of racing for all.”
