22 April Hoghton Tower Sprint

Get­ting into bike sport can be a right old has­sle and ex­pense, what with li­cences, cour­ses and all that. Sprint rac­ing does away with all that te­dious non­sense and, in the case of the Hoghton Tower Sprint, gets you on the start line for just a ten­ner. Old bikes are what the Hoghton event is all about too, so it’s per­fect for early PS ma­chines. There’s grub on site and plenty of spec­tat­ing space; dogs are not al­lowed on safety grounds. Quite right too, any­one think­ing of en­ter­ing their ca­nine into the sprint needs a se­ri­ous word with them­selves. Prac­tice starts at 9.30, rac­ing at 11am.

Where: Hoghton Tower, Prescott, Lancs How much: £10 spec­ta­tors Go: mar­shal­snorth­west.co.uk, 01254 852 896
