Rob Jefferies Memorial Meeting CANCELLED

Unfortunately, the Rob Jefferies Memorial Meeting has been cancelled, due to a dissapointing lack of entries in all categories.

Being a national event and being in tribute to a great racer and race organiser, the small numbers did not seem befitting of the event and so, with no signs of a late rush of entries just around the corner, the decision has been made to pull the plug.

It just remains to apologise to and thank those that did enter, as well as everyone who helped with promotion and flyering the event.

Event Details

Hello. Welcome to the event website for the Rob Jefferies Memorial Meet.

Here are some more of the details:

Date: Sunday July 20th, racing starts at 1pm.

Entry: HERE

There are 4 categories:

3/4s... This is the support series of events, based around the Eddie Beck Memorial and geared towards new riders to the sport. If you are in your first couple of years racing track, or indeed are a regular at your local track's 'b' league then this is the event for you. The Eddie Beck Memorial is a 40 lap points race, with primes for the sprint laps every 5 laps. You will also ride a 20 lap warm up scratch race,a 6 lap dash and a devil (elimination).

E/1/2/3... This is the main series of events, based around the Rob Jefferies Memorial Race, a 100 lap (25km) points race with primes for each of the sprint laps every 10 laps. This race has a £200 prize fund. There is also the Alan Spencer Devil, which has a prize fund of £100, a winner takes all 6 lap dash and a 20 lap warm up. The Rob Jefferies Memorial Race counts towards the National Hardtrack Endurance League (

U16/U14... As above, riders race a 20 lap points race, a 15 lap warm up, a 6 lap dash and an elimination. Races will be run with seperate boys and girls categories, on the assumption that enough boys and girls enter to make this worth while (so GET ENTERING!). As in other categories, there will be prize money and primes for all events.

Women... Once again, a warm up race, a 6 lap dash, a devil and a points race, open to senior women of all categories.

The Rob Jefferies Memorial meeting is very happy to announce some of the sponsors for this year's event.

Back for a second year is Jurassic Cabs, a Wareham based taxi firm run by Dave Wade, organiser of this year's National A level One Day In Dorset road race.

Also back again is the Anglo European Chiropractic College, or AECC, who proved very popular last year with some of their interns providing massages for aching legs in the track center.

New for this year is Bournemouth based tattoo studio Indelible, who's IT guy Will Clark has been a regular at the Bournemouth track league and has already entered the elite category for what will be his second attempt at the race.

For this year, each category will ride four races: a warm up race, a six lap dash, a devil (elimination) and a points race.  Categories are open to senior men (E/1/2/3), "club level" level senior men (3/4), U16 & U14 boys and girls (U16/U14) and Women (women). Prizes will be offered for all events and primes and prizes for the sprint laps in the points races.

Back For 2014

The Rob Jefferies Memorial Meet is back for 2014, with a date set for Sunday 20th July.

After a very successful first year, the race returns with a new tier of events for elite women riders. Rob was a champion of women's cycling and so it was thought appropriate with the current explosion in the women's race scene in Britain to include them in a stand alone category.

As with last year, there is still the elite men's series of races for E/1/2/3/4s, races for 'club' riders of 3/4th category, races for youth A & B riders as well as the new category for 1/2/3 Women. Each category will get to ride a 20 lap warm up, a six lap dash, a devil-take-the-hindmost and a final distance points race. This will be the Rob Jefferies Mini Memorial for youths, the Eddie Beck Memorial for club riders and the 100 lap Rob Jefferies Memorial for the elite men, counting for points in the national hard track endurance league and coming with it's rather lovely fossilised trophy.

Once again, proceeds from the event will be going towards the charity RoadPeace, helping victims of road traffic accidents with legal and emotional support (more details‎)
