"ROCK iT 'tIL SUNDOWN"

EVENT INFO

31st July 2019 - Tincleton, Dorset, DT2 8QW

Hurry on Sundown

There’s a certain romance about watching the sun going down, signalling the end of a beautiful, long summer’s day. That moment can more often than not be enhanced by being surrounded by good friends and sinking a few cold ones, particularly both in equal measures! Even more so after a day where you’ve felt you’ve given a good account of yourself and had fun doing it. The old saying ‘making hay while the sun shines’ doesn’t have to relate just to work you know. Don’t waste your time between those hours of labour and graft, make memories and follow your heart.

Rock it man!

That’s the whole ethos of why we started ‘Steel Hawk Motorcycle Club’ and our summer evening ‘Rock it ’til Sundown’ events. To have fun and to make memories with our kind of people, people like you and what better way to do that than all getting together to ride motorcycles and watch some hard fought, kick ass racing? Then when it’s done, we can bench race, eat, drink, laugh and rock ‘n roll to fulfil the soul.

Our second ‘Rocket ’til Sundown’ Midweek Motocross Classic is on Wednesday 31st July 2019 at Tincleton MX track, just a few miles south east of Dorchester, Dorset.

So, are you in? We hope you come and join us for what will hopefully feel like the endless summer.

The format…

The Event fires into life with Practice at 9am on Wednesday morning which the first portion of the session being practice and the last 10 minutes being qualification, which determines the gate pick order for the races. Each class three daytime races over the full circuit and for full race duration’s.   If all goes to plan after these 3 moto’s there will be an hour long break, before the evening event begins at 5pm. In the evening the track is cut in half and the Pro racers come into the programme.  The top 14 from each day time class have their own evening final over 4 sprint laps with the winner taking all. The top 14 Adult A racers have the chance to race it out for a place in the Pro programme for the evening with the top 4 from their Final stepping up into the Pros to race for the “Bob Lewis Trophy” and the big prize money.

The "Bob Lewis Trophy"

The huge “Bob Lewis Trophy” is what the Pro riders are racing for. This trophy is in memory of a true character of the sport who is the father of Jason Lewis who is the owner of our title sponsors Yworry. 

Last years champion Elliott Banks-Browne will be returning to try and win back the huge trophy but we will certainly have strong competition.
