From Natterjack to Catterick

New final round of the 2022 ACU Michelin British Enduro Championship

The ACU regret to confirm that following many months of negotiation between Army MCA, Team REME, and the military land agents concerned, the permission required to run this year’s Natterjack was sadly declined. The ACU would like to extend their thanks to the Army MCA and Team REME for their hard work and perseverance, and hope the Natterjack will return to the BEC Calendar next year.

The ACU are however delighted to confirm that a replacement round, on the same weekend (24th/ 25th September) has been confirmed by RAW Enduro in the North of England.

Following extensive negotiations, RAW Enduro have secured the 4,000 acre Catterick Military Training Area in the heart of Yorkshire. This prestigious venue is no stranger to British Enduro, having previously hosted a successful two-day BEC back in 2002. The location is perfect for a BEC with hardstanding paddock, concrete access roads, and 4,000 acres of terrain for a course not including public highway.
The course will be of around 20 miles in duration and include two special tests within easy reach of the paddock for teams and spectators. A traditional enduro test, will be shortly after the start, just 500m from the paddock, with the MX grass test after a long out-check, and just 1.5km from the paddock.

Wayne Braybrook of RAW Enduro commented: “We are delighted to be able to bring a new event to the ACU Michelin British Enduro Championship in 2022. We have previously hosted successful events at this prestigious venue, and have already plotted a provisional route with approval from the MOD.”

ACU Trials and Enduro Committee Member, Mick Seward said: “Following the sad cancellation of the Natterjack Enduro, we are pleased to welcome Wayne and RAW Enduro on board with the ACU for a replacement event. The ACU will be pulling in experienced BEC Timecard event organisers to support the regular RAW Enduro team to ensure the event is a success for all”.

Riders and spectators are advised that the location is just 20 minutes’ drive from Leeming Bar Services on the A1, close to Beadale. Accommodation is available in close by Richmond (Yorks). Special tests will be available to view on foot from Friday.
