THE off-road racing calendar will start in County Down on Saturday, February 8, with a cross-country event at Dunmore Mountain.
The Mourne Motorcycle Club will be hosting the second round of the HTM Off-Road Cross Country championship, on the demanding terrain at Spa.
This will be the fourth year that the Mourne club has hosted a round of the cross country championship on behalf of the Foyle District Motorcycle Club.
There will be a single two hour race, or two races depending on the number of entries on the day. Bikes will be on the track for a sighting lap from 9.30am before the race starts at 10am. Entry for spectators is free on the day.
