It's no surprise that we have a bumper entry for CRMC Cadwell Park, it’s always been a favourite of mine and for many riders, with it's 2.25 mile length, coupled with multiple inclines/declines and a brilliant mix of fast & slow corners – perhaps 20 to 25mph for the hairpin and maybe close on 100mph for Chris Curve? 

CRMC Cadwell Park 29-30 June 2024 

...and all situated in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, making a brilliant experience not just for the riders, but spectators and everyone who makes the effort to allow our meetings to run. I can remember as a newcomer to racing being blown away by Cadwell and everything it has to offer. My challenge then was to try and lap in under two minutes, which in itself was quite an achievement, but even our slowest Lap record achieves that (the up to 750cc sidecars) but many of our classes are comfortably well inside the two minute mark, some are miles inside of that and getting near the speeds that achieved by top BSB riders. How about our fastest ever recorded lap of Cadwell in just 1.35.215? That was last year, with Joe Barton on the Minnovation P&M Kawasaki. Quite astounding speeds methinks...

Talking about astounding speeds, this year we have seen multiple examples of some serious speed - Mark Roxborough and Adam Sheriff have both looked very quick on their CBR 600 Hondas, while another Mark, this time Mr Cronshaw has continued his domination of all things Classic 500 & 350cc versions, quite simply virtually unbeatable. Mike Burke won all three races at Croft on his 750 Ducati, but was pushed very hard by Tony Hart on the race bike of the meeting – his TZ 750 Yamaha.

The one titanic battle we can certainly forward to is the enduring fight between Ant Hart on the big 916 Duke and Mike Smith on the ZXR 750 Kawasaki. Ant won the first two races at Croft, but then was sidelined by a suspected ignition fault and had to sit out the third race. Hopefully his chief mechanic and father Ron, will have got this sorted, so the titans can re-commence the fun at Cadders. 
Nice to see a good crowd at the trophy presentation

Tony Hart's "new" TZ750! 
The sidecar grid was a little sparse at Croft but at Cadwell we once again have some decent numbers in the three wheelers, and I know that long-time sidecar supporter Bill Barrowcliffe is presenting an award to the best turned-out Sidecar. There are likely to be several outfits for him to choose from... and of course the club always have trophies for the best Race & Parade bikes of the meeting. 
The Trophy presentation happens about 30 minutes or so after racing finishes on Saturday evening, and it’s a great time to share in everyone’s success. So the question is ‘Who will be collecting?’ It’s always great to see new faces there, and quite a few of these will be in the SuperSport 400 & 600 classes, which is looking like it should be a full grid. 
 
So not long to wait now. If you haven’t entered, there still time to get it sorted and join in the super atmosphere that a CRMC race weekend provides. I’ll be there – will you? 
Jono 
There is still time and places in most races.  
 
It costs just £265 to enter at Cadwell Park, you'll have 10 minutes qualification practice time and 2 races and Saturday and 2 races on Sunday.  
There is also the opportunity for many bikes to enter the prestigious ACU races for Classic 500s & 350s and the Post Classic Races which are longer races, plus you'll have an extra timed qualifying session - all for just £35! What a bargain!
