ACES (All Club Evening Series)


Overview

The ACES series key aim is to provide interclub track racing over the Autumn, Winter and Spring. The series aims to increase patronage of DISC and provide riders an opportunity to race for their club. The greater the participation the greater chance a club has of winning.

Riders will be graded and each grade can earn equivalent points for their club. All points are accumulated by clubs over the series to determine the series winners. The series will also act as a pathway/preparation for Summer Track Racing.

Clubs and riders are encouraged to make a night of it and get as many riders and spectators to the Saturday Night Racing. Bonus points will be awarded each round for the club with the best and loudest cheer squad.

Races will change in each of the first 3 rounds, then the format will repeat again for the next three. The final round (round 7) will be a special event featuring a 50 km Madison, team based bunch races and Motopacing. To be eligible for the Madison, riders must have competed in at least 2 previous rounds. Racing will be tightly scheduled with the aim of minimising downtime in between. All rounds will finish with and Aces A Grade race at the conclusion of the evening.
