On the weekend of May 30/31st WOR host a two day special events weekend at one
of the their most popular venues, The Brilliant Baden Hall in Staffordshire.
The Saturday 30th will see the original RED fun day return to Baden Hall for the
first time this year with unlimited track time and practice from 10am till 2pm
followed by a fun 1 hr race session on the Saturday afternoon. As always the RED
caters for the entire spectrum of skill levels and ages.

Enduro riders, the day will consist of, a Free 1.5hr open practice session and
then 2 x 1hr moto duro races ...
From 10am till 11:30am there will be open practice and playtime session for all
entered riders to have a go round the track and get themselves ready for the 2 x
1 hour races ..
The races will be 12 noon till 1pm and then 2pm till 3pm..

winners for the day...
WOR have never ran a moto duro style event at Baden Hall before and they are
confident the venue will lend itself superbly to the format with its variety of
terrain and open going coupled with some flowing in the trees action.
The moto duro course will not be a long 5 mile loop like the usual Hare
Scrambles / Enduro loop we run but more like a 3.5 mile more open and flowing
loop to suit the Moto Duro format.
All riders are welcome and the entry fee is £45 for members and £55 for non
members, Great value for over 3.5 hrs on your bikes...
All solo classes are catered for including a new MOTO X class for riders that
are not Hare Scrambles / Enduro riders.
Camping is most welcome FOC the day before and if riders wish to attend the RED
fun day on the Saturday as well then the WOR team will offer a generous discount
for riders doing both days.
