We hope as many teams as possible can support this initiative to benefit an important fund that does much to support fallen Bemsee riders behind the scenes.
It is a requirement of the ACU’s Standing Regulations that Rookies must wear an Orange Jacket when on-track at all times (inc Testdays). The Club now requires that Rookies comply with this throughout the entirety of their Rookie year even if they have gained sufficient signatures to upgrade to Clubman and irrespective of the class they are competing in.
The reasons for this are twofold: Where your Rookie Class runs within the main class grid (e.g. Rookie 400’s in with the main 400 grid) the wearing of an Orange Jacket enables the class of each rider to be clear to others during a race and the Jacket provides an indication to more experienced riders that the wearer is a novice or in their first year of racing.
Replacements are available at every meeting in the Race Office and spares, if you forget, are available on request in the Collecting Area. Failure to wear an Orange Jacket as set out above will result in a penalty to be determined by the Clerk of the Course. This could be a time penalty that could affect your race result.
We have spare stock of jackets in the Race Office if you’ve trashed yours (for a modest charge)

Dinner Tickets are reserved for Championship 1-2-3's and their friends & relations and the ticket form will appear on bemsee.net around early October and will be in the Race Office at the final Brands meeting. The bar will be open for those who just want to pop along but not sitdown to the dinner, you’ll need to buy a “bar only” ticket.
2015 ROOKIE TRAINING SCHOOL
At Brands Hatch over the weekend of 21-22 February. Saturday covers the ACU CTC Course and more, with Sunday on track under our Club ACU Instructors. Application Forms will appear on bemsee.net from around November and will also be available with new ACU Licence Application Forms and at the Brands Open Day on 14th December.
Started this season - all new ACU Licence applicants will have to undergo a practical course as part of their Licence application – something that this Club has been doing for new Members for years!
The BMCRC is pleased to announce that a change of Chairman was agreed at the Club’s recent AGM.
New to the post is existing Director, Jeremy Hill who is also responsible for overseeing the hugely successful Rider Development Programme at Bemsee.
Jeremy comments: “I have been a member of Bemsee for nearly twelve years as a racer and for the last four years have represented rider’s interests to the Club as an ordinary member and as a Director on the Management Board. As well as the Rider Development Director I am also responsible for being the main contact and support for all rookies within the Club.
I commute on a Yamaha Fazer 1000 every day to central London and work in the Banking industry within the IT Security arena. It’s one way to finance the fun on track! I play bad golf, compete in triathlons, am always happy and positive attitude is everything. I’ll talk bikes to anyone so come and have a chat, I’m always in the paddock or on the end of the phone or email.
Racing has been a great part of my life and I am looking forward to continuing work within Bemsee for the riders’ interests, development and mentoring. I am driven to help riders, as well as the racing community volunteers within the Club, achieve their racing connected dreams - I did, and I was very lucky to do so at Bemsee.
I am honored that my fellow directors supported my appointment within this great Club of ours and will continue to try and inspire the members to build on the wonderful “Bemsee Family” atmosphere we hold so dear in the paddock. Great racing, great friends and truly “Our club is its members and the members are the club”.”
Jeremy takes the reigns from Eddie Bellars who has been Chair since late 2007. Eddie has offered his resignation from the post in order to allow fresh blood to take the Club forwards. Eddie is one of the Club’s valued Clerks of the Course, a previous Board member at the ACU and is currently the Chair of the ACU Non-Territorial Board of which the Club is a member. He is also an FIM A-Grade Clerk. Eddie and his wife Norma together clocked up 50 years of service to the Club in 2013.
The Club recognizes his immense contribution over the last 50 years and for his continued service going forward. Eddie remains on the BMCRC Board and continues his role as Company Secretary.
The grander the circuits we go to the more Marshals we need. With Donington GP, Snetterton 300 and Brands GP all on the 2014 Calendar, good Marshal cover will be important.
So, If you’ve ever thought about getting involved on the other side of the fence then now’s the time to make yourself known!
The Bemsee Marshals are a close kit group, many have years of experience so you’ll always be with people who know the ropes and will guide you, teach you and keep you safe. There’s a full programme of training – we have our annual Marshal Training day at Brands on the 22nd February with the chance for on-track experience the following day, marshalling our new Rider School on the Sunday. You can then decide to Marshal at any of our 2014 meetings as part of the team. The Club also runs Friday Testdays using its own resources for which Marshals are also needed. The Club pays expenses for Friday attendance and an allowance if you caravan or camp at the circuit. Hot breakfasts are provided on all days and packed lunches on both racedays. There’s often an evening get-together too in the camping area with a Barbie paid for by the Club - so the Club does what it can to look after its people.
Please drop an email to the Chief Marshal, Mike Hodgins on
So we can get more info out to you. Or call into the Race Office at a remaining meeting and we will try to get Mike to say hello face to face whilst you are there.
Marshalling isn’t the only area where you could help. We are always looking for dedicated people to get involved in:
Ask Mike or Tracey in the Race Office about these areas or email Mike on
