Let me tell you something about our club.
We are a local motocross club in Gouda, a town in the west of The Netherlands near Rotterdam.
We organize club races and practise days / evenings.
Practise hours are on saturday from 13:00u. to 16:00u. and on wednesday from 16:30u to 19:30u during the summertime only.

Event calendar for Zuid-Holland

Route:
Click here for a route-map.
Coming from Rotterdam (or Hook of Holland - North Sea Ferries) follow the A20 in the direction of Utrecht. Take exit 18 (in Dutch: afrit 18), Moordrecht/Gouda-west. Turn right and follow the N456 and N207. Just before the 'waterworks' (lock - 'Juliana Sluizen' at the route-map) turn left and follow the road parallel to the canal for about 1 km. Then you will come to a very narrow road and there you will find the circuit.

In general:
The official national motorcycle alliance in The Netherlands is KNMV and you can e-mail them at sport@knmv.nl

Of course there are more tracks in the west of the Netherlands. You can take a look at the mx-race calendar for the province of "Zuid-Holland" at this page. This page is in Dutch, but with a little imagination you can find the dates there.
