Entries are now open for the years BBRC Hafren Rally running on the 30th September

The format will be similar to previous years with a few changes and improvements to the 45 mile lap, and 3 special stages. It will start from the superb all weather Sweet Lamb motor sport complex, which offers guaranteed hard standing parking whatever the weather. The course will be a mix of fire road, forest tracks and open hill, with plenty of spectacular Mid Wales countryside. It will include a few more challenging optional routes on the liaison sections. Entry fee is £65 and there will be separate classes for both trail and enduro bikes (no MX bikes) and a beginners class for the new comers/less confident riders. The beginners class will do the same course, but will be expected to complete a lap less and will start at the back of the entry so they are not riding amongst the quicker riders.

As this is a fun social event, there will be a social get together on the Saturday evening at Llanidloes Rugby Club where there will be a buffet and bar laid on to give everybody a chance to have a chat and a few beers, not too many mind!

Hafren Dirt Bike club would like to thank the Big bike Rally Challenge for sponsoring this years event. For those of you that don't know what the Big Bike Rally Challenge is, it is a relatively new Rally Championship that ran for the 1st time last year. It was the brain child of long term rally enthusiasts and big bike riders Mark Molineux and Robert Hughes who wanted to encourage more big bike riders into the UK rally scene. Not only do they co-ordinate the 6 round series of which the Hafren is the penutlimate round, they are always proactively encouraging new riders to have a go at rallying, by just offering tips and advice and even running training courses aimed at the big bike rider, for further info on the BBRC please see their website http://bigbikerallychallenge.co.uk/

Hafren regs are available to download here.

The on line entry system that was trilled for the 1st time last year is in place again and postal entries will also be accepted.

07/07/12 - Hafren BEC Round Now Cancelled -

It is with great regret that we have had to make the decision to cancel this years Hafren BEC scheduled for next weekend, 14/15th July.  The cancellation is due to the persistent bad weather and weeks of rain we have had, and no sign of a substantial improvement between now and next weekend.  The course is totally saturated, with many parts being un-rideable, and with the growing environmental pressure we work under with the forestry commission we are afraid that the damage caused may jeopardise the long term future of motorcycle events in the area.  Another issue is that the harvest has not been taken off the fields for the special tests and service.
 
This is not a decision we have taken without a great deal of consideration, we have looked at many different options and potential solutions, none of which are workable. 
 
We would like to apologise to all who were planning on attending for any inconvenience caused, we are as disappointed as anybody.  All riders entry fees will be refunded less £5 to cover some of the admin fees and the several thousand pounds loss the club will have to stand as a result of such a last minute cancellation.
 
We would like to thank Rob Sheldon at Rock Oil North and others who committed their support to the event.
 
If you have any queries please contact us on info@hafrendbc.co.uk

13/05/12 - Hafren DBC members have been busy preparing for the last few months for this years Rock Oil North - Hafren Enduro, round 3 of the British Enduro Championship. Much of the event will be similar to previous Hafren BEC's with the paddock being at Llanidloes Rugby club just outside the town, offering competitors good facilities such as permanent toilets, showers, bar and food, all within walking distance of the town, all of which helps to create a good atmosphere and weekend away for everybody.

The biggest change for this years event is we are going to use shorter lap, down from the usual 45 miles to 30, this has come about as a result of feedback from riders saying they prefer the shorter lap in order to get more special tests in, so we will try it for this year and see how it goes. As always we aim to make sure the course will be rideable for all classes, with one reasonably challenging short tight check, where we may have a dual route from the check with Championship and Expert riders using a slightly different route so as to challenge them without killing off the Clubman.

As usual there will be 2 special tests, we had hoped to have an old school cross country test in the forest, but due to issues with the forestry commission this has not been possible, which means it will be 2 grass motocross type tests. The usual one close to the start which will be used morning and night, and a brand new one at Glynhafren farm. The shorter lap will also hopefully make it easier for pit crews and spectators, as there will only be one service at the test at Glynhafren.

This years event is sponsored by Rob Sheldon at Rock Oil North. Entries will open this coming Monday, 14th May, riders will be able to enter using the on-line entry system which we have trialed with our last few rallies, postal entries will still be accepted for the dinosaurs out there!

05/05/11 - Tarrenig Rally 2011 Final Instructions is now available here

29/03/11 - Tarrenig Rally - Due to popular demand the Tarenig Rally is back in the calendar after a couple of years out, running on Sunday 8th May. It will follow the usual HDBC rally format, with a really interesting and varied 35 mile lap consisting of fire roads, forest tracks and open hill with plenty of spectacular Mid Wales countryside, with 3 special stages per lap planned. It will include a few more challenging optional routes which seemed to go down well when the club trialled them at the Hafren rally.

Entry fee is £65 and there will be separate classes for both trail and enduro bikes (no MX bikes) and a beginners class for the new comers/less confident riders. The beginners class will do the same course, but will be expected to complete a lap less and will start at the back of the entry so they are not riding amongst the quicker riders.

Camping is available at the start area, which is a beautiful field right by the side of the River Wye below the now closed Glan Severn pub, the other side of the A44 from the Sweet Lamb motor sport complex.

As this is a fun social event, there will be a social get together on the Saturday evening at the start area where there will be a hog roast and bar laid on to give everybody a chance to have a chat and a few beers, not too many mind!
