Straightliners 2010, Round 1
This Sunday, the 14th March, sees Round 1 of the Straightliners 2010 championship take place at Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire. All the usual classes will be run - so that's the 11.10, 10.10 and 9.10 bracket classes, the Ultimate Streetbike classes of Pro, Unlimited, Up-to-1175 and Up-to-750, the premier road-legal class Top Bike, and the slick tyre and wheelie bars class of Comp Bike, plus the various scooter classes and junior class. Essentially, a class whatever bike you ride. Race entry is £35 for Straightliners members and £40 for non-members.
There's a run-what-yer-brung / test day on the Saturday, and overnight camping is available. Bearing in mind that this is one of only two bike-only events at the Pod, it's well worth supporting!

The weekend also plays host to the first round of the Straightliners stunt championship - if you've not see the level at which UK stunting has risen to over the last five years or so, it's worth the trip to the Pod for this alone! More behind-the-scenes gossip on stunting here
