So what is Bracket Racing?
Bracket racing is a form of racing where competitors are grouped into brackets according to their lap times, and not by the class of bike they are riding. 
This form of racing provides a very enjoyable and low cost form of racing. Riders can be assured that they will have the fun of dicing with other competitors and not circulating around by themselves. It is low cost because you can race whatever bike you have available and it does not need to be a competitive model or have the latest hot up components to be competitive in your bracket. 

What do I need to do to prepare my bike?
Your bike will need to conform with the requirements of road racing as per the GCR’s, such as lock wiring, removal of stands and glass etc. Preston members will be able to help you with your bike preparation if you are unsure how to do it. 

What do I need for protective clothing?
You will need full leathers 1 or 2
piece that zips together as well as the usual requirements of back protector, gloves, boots and helmet that comply with the GCR’s

To enter you will need to be a member of the Preston MCC and hold an MA race licence or purchase a 1 day competition licence. 

All the information you need is available on the Preston MCC website;

Preston MCC can also be contacted through their facebook page;
