The Darley Moor Motorcycle Road Race Club Championship reaches it’s half-way point when round four gets under way on Sunday, June 24.

The event takes place at the circuit near Wynaston, Ashbourne.

However, for the Forumula 600 competitors, their second race will decide who lifts the coveted Curtis Milner Trophy.

The Trophy, in memory of a young racer from Alfreton who began his racing career at Darley Moor but, whose life was cut short in a road accident, will hopefully be presented by Curtis’s parents, Craig and Tina.

It will go to the overall winner of the second Formula 600 race from this weekend and the previous meeting, round three.

In addition to the silverware, the winner will also receive a cheque for £250 with the second-placed rider receiving £150 and third place £100.

Last year’s winner, Richard Wardle from Stoke-on-Trent is best placed to repeat his success.

He was the only rider, from six races to beat Jim Hodson from Wigan at the previous round, despite still suffering from a broken collarbone he sustained in round two.

Practice starts at 10am, with the first of 19 races due to start at approximately 11.30am. Adults £11, senior citizens £6, children under 16 free.

Parking and paddock transfer free, with programmes £3.
