I have been around the course and road works have sprung up today on the A46 near Ashton Under Hill, for pot hole repairs. Traffic flow is less due to the holiday period, but care must be taken when starting and moving onto the carriageway, if a row of vehicles are coming down, assuming the traffic lights are still in use. We will however, proceed with the TT event this evening on the U715, with sign on from 18:15 hrs to 19:10 hrs at Dumbleton Village Hall.
Full course details are on our TT Course Page on the following link: www.cheltenhamandcounty.cc/road/time-trialling/courses/
I also attach the current Risk Assessment Rev 4, and I ask that all competitors read this and comply with this document. When you cross the A46 and go North to the lay-by for the start, you must first go to the lay-by in your lane, so you carefully turn and cross the A46 to return to the start. Anyone seen crossing the A46 and directly entering the lay-by to start, will be disqualified.
Feedback from competitors who have already raced on the clubs new U715 course , consider it quicker than the clubs normal U706 course, so we will see what times are produced this evening!
Due to the amount of roadworks and disruption we have had this season and lack of the popular 10 mile races being run, I intend changing the last TT flat race on the 9th August from our traditional 5 mile to the 10 mile U706 Course. If I hear no objections by the 2nd August, then I will update the programme.
