First up is SCX3 Strathclyde Park (Sunday 6th November) hosted by East Kilbride Road Club, featuring a new Start setup introduced to deal with the rapidly increasing racer numbers at Scottish CX races. Last year saw record numbers take to the grid at Strathclyde Park and it looks like Callendar Park’s tally of 600 racers this October will be surpassed on Sunday. Entries for Raleigh SCX3 Strathclyde Park close on Thursday 3rd Nov 2016.

Debutant Series Race SCX4 - Fife College (13th November) also looks like it’s going to be a busy one, with over 400 riders signed up already and still 2 weeks to go until entries close. Keep your eyes peeled for some changes to race scheduling at this race - as the course is new to many riders, the organisers hope to allow longer practice sessions before races. Enter Here.

The last of the three November Series races is Raleigh SCX5 - Irvine Beach (Sunday 20th November). Last years Championships venue is a favourite course of many riders and always offers spectacular racing on rolling parkland and it’s trademark dunes and sandy tracks. Online entry is available here.
