We have opened the entries for the Darley Moor test day. We now have an online entry system and this will help take some of the pressure off Sophie in the coming year.
Those of you who have joined or registered with the BHRC will already have access to the portal for entries, if you haven't yet created an account please CLICK HERE and enter your email address and create a password, then fill in all your details, you will only have to do this once. This will give you access to your personal portal where you will be able to join the British Historic Racing Club, enter meetings etc.
The payment method via Stripe is the preferred one for us. You are not entered in the event until payment has cleared, Stripe is instant and totally secure, and we never see your payment details. Due to several riders not turning up to a booked meeting, we can no longer accept on-the-day payments.
We understand that not everyone gets on with computers or doing things online and if anyone is finding it difficult then please try family, friends, or neighbours for help, if that fails then contact me on 07944 266895 and I will do all I can to help.
Anyone who has an Alpha portal will be able to use the above link with their login details and see the test day entry. You do not need to be a BHRC member to enter the test day. You might have an Alpha portal if you have entered the Lord of Lydden recently or are into go-carting.

BHR News & Articles
NEW: Racing only Section :NEW
forward into 2024 and beyond
Until recently it has been a requirement for riders who wish to race with British Historic Racing to be VMCC members. This year a new 'race only' section of the BHR has been formed. It will be known as the British Historic Racing Club (BHRC) and it is affiliated with the ACU to enable members to apply for their racing licence.
If you would like to benefit from everything the VMCC offers you will need to remain a member of the VMCC. As a fully paid up VMCC member you will still be able to race with BHRC and will not have to pay a separate membership fee. However, we do require you to register with us as you will need a current BHRC registration to enter the races online. There is no cost to VMCC members to register with us.
Alternatively, you may wish just to become a member of BHRC, if so you will need to create an account with Alpha to give you access to your portal (gateway) where you will be able to purchase your membership. When your membership portal is active you will be able to organise your racing season and in the future purchase goods, etc. VMCC members will also need to create an account with Alpha to be able to register. There is no cost to create the Alpha account.
The BHRC membership will run from the 1st of January until the 31st of December when memberships will expire on the 31st of December irrespective of the joining date. The one exception to this will be for 2023. If you join now your membership will expire on the 31st of December 2024 so there is no need to wait until January to join. The cost of British Historic Racing Club membership is £30.00 for the 2023/2024 season.
If you wish to join please visit the British Historic Racing Club Forum - View the Board Index- Information Source- “New British Historic Racing Club NEW” and follow the instructions. Or click below.
