Hillsborough’s the last stop for KIA National Twinshock Championship

Matt Spinks KIA Twin-shock Champs

Hillborough MCC host the final round of the 2018 KIA National Twinshock Championship this Sunday, November 4.

The start is at Crawshaw Head, same as the Jack Wood (Hollow Meadows, Sheffield S6 6GN) and the good news is there has been a great response to a call for observers and there will be at LEAST 20 sections to be lapped twice.

At the moment there will be two sections at DD Gates, three at the top of Ughill, six at Buckleys and nine at MBs. There will be the usual mix of rocks, streams, rocks, mud, rocks and banks. And rocks!

At the end of the lap it’s back to the start to top up with petrol and some refreshments at the catering van! Entries don’t close until Friday evening, so if anyone has forgotten to enter they can get in touch and Andy Longden will sort you out.

This year there should have been nine KIA rounds but with one cancellation, Hillsborough represents the eighth.  The Championships, Historic Spanish/ Pre-78 Twinshock, Twinshock, Pre-72 Britshock and Air-cooled Monos (Expert and Clubman classes) are all minus the two lowest scores.

Not being good at sums (understatement!) the only class that I am certain is tied-up is Expert Britshock where Ian Peberdy on his well-sorted Bantam is well clear.

All the others will just have to do their best on Sunday – and then see how it looks with the two drop scores. It all adds to the fun!
