So if I've never raced before would this be a good one to start with??? I'm quite happy riding in a bunch, but I've never been in a group that was (officially) racing. Quite keen to give it a go, but I'm pretty sure I would need to be in a slower group!

Yes, this would be a very good way to start road racing.  Everyone has a realistic chance of winning in this race. So send of your entry today, train hard and go for the win.

Riders are allocated groups according to their ability and generally novice racers are in the first two groups.  There are a few minutes between groups so the fast riders at the back have their work cut out trying to catch everyone. 

I would recommend joining the ERC 09:50 group to ensure you are familiar with group  riding techniques.

Let me know if you have any other questions and enjoy the race.

Cheers
Colin
