The AMCA’s Dursley Motocross Club the club selected for this feature of the AMCA newsletter!
With a string of talented riders amongst the 39 members, including reigning MX1 Champion, Lee Dunham, MX1 contender and AMCA newcomer Luke Dean, including other championship riders Aran Agius, Elliott Barrs, plus MX2 Championship front runners and IMBA guest riders Carl and Brandon Benjamin, the Club is widely known as the Championship Club!
Their home Nympsfield has been a circuit for decades, with the AMCA purchasing the venue back in 1991. The hillside venue is one of the steepest on the AMCA circuit front with hills you dare not walk down for fear of not getting back up!
The club have ran many a Championship, plus IMBA events previously, and this year took the decision to host both the MX1 and MX2 IMBA Home Championship rounds!
One of the club stalwarts of the Club is Betty Sams who has been Secretary since 1984. The Club recently lost the Chairman, Steve Sams who featured in last month’s newsletter – Steve certainly won’t be forgotten and his efforts will be remembered by everyone who he touched over the decades of service to the AMCA and the Dursley Club.
The Club still meet at the Dursley Community Centre on alternate Wednesday evenings at 8:30pm!
If you are interested in joining any AMCA club please visit the website.
