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.
