The Dunmow Motorcycle Club are holding their only speed event of the season on Sunday when Grass Track Racing takes place at Ugley Hall Farm, Ugley, with the Ken Marshall Memorial meeting.
Practice gets under way at midday with a 46 race programme starting at 1.30pm. The event is being held at the famous Ugley Bowl which is renowned for good close racing and provides spectacular viewing for the public.
The event is the second round of the Eastern Centre Championships and will include classes for 250cc, 350cc, 500cc and two valve solo together with 500cc, 1000cc left hand and 1000cc right hand sidecars. Two youth classes are also included in the programme.
The 250cc solo sees ex British Champions Adam Shipp (Diss) and Dave Knowles (York) clash on a track that Shipp defies any rider to get the better of him.
In the 350cc Richard Smith (Ipswich) comes back from injury to face Dave Mears (Canterbury) and Matt Etherington who has just had a year out through injury himself, also in the class is the up and coming Michael Faulkner (Spilsby).
