In fact we've done that before and many of the on-road racers have an off-road bike they could bring along.

What do you think - would be great to put some names to faces and a good opportunity for anyone interested in RC bikes to meet up?
Just to add to Steve's post here's a video of some M5's racing at Cotswold track..

that video of the M5's at Cotswolds has made me laugh more than I have for days, looks totally mental

reminds me of the first days when I ran rallycross with the cars back at Southend, changes in surface and some jumps etc.

Have you managed to negotiate a pass for Costwolds yet? If so, we can try and get some others to bring off-road bikes along. The more the merrier

Right - so far we have three people interested in running off-road bikes at the Cotswold national. Anyone else out there fancy joining in, would only need one or two more to make for a good heat?
