URGENT MESSAGE ROAD RACE LEAGUE AT RISK PLEASE PASS TO ALL

Dear Rider and Supporter of the Road Race League

Just 4 weeks to go and we still do not have a handicapper!
 
I wish to list the Role and Support the Handicapper will get.
 
Firstly the riders who have entered the league series are already pre-listed in 5 groups on a laptop; this list is printed off weekly and is in the format of BC signing on sheets.
 
Any riders who appear on the night are placed in the group that the Handicapper agrees with the rider ie what category is he/she, are they a novice, have they recent points etc. The final decision is the Handicappers.
 
Cheryl and Mark enter them on the relevant sheet, issue a number take the money and licence, NO admin for the Handicapper. They have has Cheryl, Mark and Myself to support him.
 
 
We have a lap grid sheet for each course that is used as a guide to decide the time gaps of each group I will assist in setting the groups off.
 
The Handicapper can follow the Race in one of the race cars, or use their own , taking note of dropped riders or riders bridging gaps to move up a group, or you can just watch it on the finish line, taking notes.
 
What must be remembered is the Handicapper will not be expected to see every move therefore they can only adjust riders they observe.
 
The finish is filmed and played back on a TV, judges agree the results and the handicapper with myself agree who moves up or down a group changing their group on the lap top.
 
All mileage and any other expenses will be paid; you will have use of a Laptop, support from Cheryl, Mark, commisaires and judges every week.
 
So Ladies and Gentlemen there must be someone who wants to get involved, see the racing close up and join the Team
Could be a couple or an individual.
 
If interested contact me on 01902 833907  or email mike.jackson50@aol.co.uk
 
 
WHAT I MUST MAKE CLEAR IS, IF WE DO NOT GET A HANDICAPPER THERE WILL NOT BE A ROAD RACE LEAGUE
