The Sudbury Motor Cycle Club are going EXTREME this winter, they are organising an Extreme Enduro on Sunday 4th January 2015 at Foxborough Quarry Sible Hedingham Essex. The event is run on a short course and consist of extreme sections of tyres, concrete and rocks slabs and logs scattered around natural terrain and there is no let up over the two hour duration. There are four Classes being Pro, Expert, Clubman and Trials machines and over the past few weeks the course has been laid out and some of the many obstacles have been put into place while the remaining ones will be put into place over the next three weeks. This is an exciting new adventure for the Sudbury Club and it is believed they are the first Club in the Eastern Centre to promote this type of event. There is a limit of 80 riders and it is hoped to attract riders from around Great Britain and many marshals are needed to help to keep clear the many obstacles from falling riders as there is no alternative route. The starting method will have riders running to their machines in a Le Man style and hoping their machines will start first time.

Regulations can be downloaded from above and please enter as early as possible.

Blast from the Past

By & featuring Roger Chaplin

Anglia Television were doing articles on some minority sports and I was contacted by the Presenter and Interviewer Cy Percival asking me if I would set something up.Filming took place in January 1971 and it is in black and white because of a union despite with colour filming.The Sudbury Club in the 1960s organised for Anglia Television two scrambles demos at Tye Farm Great Cornard and of course we had the live BBC TV Grandstand Scramble (the second one they ever ran) with Murray Walker as commentator
