The East Midlands Junior Race Series continues to offer fantastic events in excellent locations with many different partners. The 2018 series looks to be another exciting year.
The East Midlands Regional Committee have just met and have just made a decision on the 2018 Events for the East Midlands Junior Series. The Events are as follows but please be mindful that as not all events are currently registered with TE the exact details do remain provisional.
There will be a new system in place this year for the series and awarding points so please stand by for details to be released. The good news is if you are a home nations (TE) members that has East Midlands on your licence you will automatically be registered for the series.
No further details are available at present. Contact details will be published once all information is known as they are undergoing revision.
