Gravity Project Honey Series Round 3, Avery Farm 10th May 2015. Back to to what is now a regular for the Honey Series but, are we finally going to see the dusty racing here we've been dreaming for here the last 3 years.

 

The Venue

Avery Farm is a private venue only available for riding during formal practice and race days. Any riding outside of these time may endanger future use of the venue.

 

The Course

Avery Farm is a predominantly wooded venue on a hillside that gets gradually steeper as you descend. Up top there is open mature woodland before gradient drop onto an open clearing mid course. From here it gets tighter in dense woodland before the speed picks up and you exit out into the finish field. 

The course is will be similar to last years and top times are likely to be sub 1 minute if the weather holds out.

Last years course video below will give you an idea of what to expect, with a few changes for 2015.

 

 

Rider Info

This is a push up event with no up lift service, the push-up will be sign posted and crosses the track about halfway up the hill. The venue has parking for 100+ cars, on site catering and toilets will be available on Sunday . The track crosses a public footpath near the finish that we have no permission to obstruct. The crossing point will be marshalled but please be considerate to the footpath users. Full face helmets only.
