This coming Sunday 9th April see the first round of the 2017 Dave Barkshire Motorcycles Two Man Enduro Championship. This event is being organised by the Sudbury Motor Cycle Club at a new venue being Straits Mill Convent Lane Bocking near Braintree Essex. 

First riders are away at 10am for the morning two hour session while the afternoon session starts at 1pm with the Special Test on lap one. Sam Toy who won the Championship Class last year with Will Kerry will not be riding as he will be concentrating on his cycling however Kerry has entered and it is expected his riding partner will be nine times Eastern Centre Solo Enduro Champion Chris Hockey who last won this Class with Toy in 2010 also a few years earlier with his brother Gavin. 

The current Expert Champions have not entered but Kevin Palmer who won the Clubman Class in 2016 with Jeff Turner is riding in the ‘Experts’ with Ben Grice. It will be interesting to see how the competitors will cope riding a complete new venue which could throw up some surprises.
