Scheduled for Sunday 27th June, this TT is a particularly popular and a well-attended event with so many riders, friends and family from the local community having fond memories of Gary to share.
Last year we had in excess of 100 riders take to the road to mark the event with some blistering times that Gary would have been proud of.
Stick the date in the diary – its the fastest course in the area and will be a great event for anyone to attend – if you’re a season-pro or new to time trials entirely – we look forward to seeing you there!

Wednesday Night TT announcement 🎙

For this season we will only be using the P459 Gallows Hill course.

Bulbury Golf course has been very accommodating for many years but due to an increase in their membership, they no longer have spare car parking space.

We’ve taken the decision to hold our Wednesday evening TT on the popular Gallows Hill course only.

This is a great course for beginners and experienced alike! and now a great way to hone your TT skills for the open events and road racing!
