Derby Phoenix Club Championships Rounds 1 & 2 - 18th/19th April 2009.

There are several club champions from 2008 who will be in action including former National Superstock Cup rider Darron Bellworthy who clinched both the 1300cc Open Championship as well as the 1300cc Allcomers crown.

The experienced Alan Armour will be defending his F400 title and Ian Fleetwood will be looking to do likewise in F600 and also in the line up are Novice 1300 champion James Ward and Dean Hair who won the Novice 600 series last year.

As usual, there will be a healthy North East and Scottish contingent mixing it up with the DPMCC regulars over the two day meeting which includes action for various classes for Solos from 125cc to 1300cc, Thunderbikes, F400, F600, Twins, Triples, and both F1 and F2 Sidecars.

Practice gets underway at 9.30 on Saturday with racing straight afterwards and on Sunday, the action gets underway at 12.00 noon. Adult admission is just 10.00 on both days with accompanied children aged 15 and under admitted FREE.
