    At the moment-no winter series at hog hill has been planned-not to say it won't.
    I work there and have yet to see any bookings.
  • Google imperial racing team for the hillingdon winter series which starts 3 dec. every Saturday. It's a flat course. Hogg hill if your in north east London rather than southwest London or if you want a hilly course..

    Regarding Hillingdon Winter Series, if you are in the 3rd cat race and over the course of the 10 weeks or so you go over 40 points, will you be forced into the elite 1,2 race instead or have they a dispensation for the series. I could see a queue of people trying to stop on 39. Reason I ask is because a friend of mine is right up there and well , it pays to know .

    If it was the normal rule then anybody who was winning the series and over 40 would be eliminated from the race, but not the overall series, so winning the series would entail winning your last race having been on 39 points(BC) before the start. I don't know!!

    Yes, as soon as you're 2nd cat you cannot continue to race the 3rd cat race.

    If you really wanted to win the series, not getting a race licence would've been your best bet as then you could've contested all the races regardless of your placings. But you will want to manage your finishes if you're on 39 points and still want to win the series - lots of 11th places and a final race win will be needed.

    I'll tell him that, I had tried to think of all the angles, hopefully now he can cancel his membership and buy day licences for a few weeks, then get his membership renewed, thank you!!

    Did anyone find a wheel in the car park at Hillingdon on Saturday late afternoon ?


    Did anybody lose a nice top with very distinctive lettering in bright colours? has been washed and ready for return to owner.
