We're still buzzing from an incredible weekend's racing. Thanks to everyone who raced, pitted, jet washed, repaired stuff, refreshed people, marshalled, helped out, dinosaured and turned up to yell and ring a bell!

Congratulations to all the new National Champs and all the other riders who took on the tough conditions to provide entertainment for everyone, you are all stars!

We look forward to seeing you again sometime, until then Crawley Wheelers out!

This year we have taken our legendary National Trophy course and spiced it up! There's something for everyone: Fast tarmac and gravel straights, grassy chicanes and hot dog turns, the Quarry off camber and steep hills, the camber descent, hurdles, sand school and new big bridge.

There's a double pit just after the start/finish straight and then about halfway through the lap. Jet wash is just a short sprint away.
