View Full Version : Racing in the school Hols ?

What's happening during the school holidays about racing ? ? ?
Take it the school is closed as usual ?
Can we not race on the school field ? Just put some ropes in the trialer and some jumps ? That way we don't need access to inside the school ?

Not a bad idea, but I think we would have to move the trailer to the far side next to the field to make it practical.

In the past we have been able to get access to the school during the holidays for 4 weeks out of 6, but the turn out was never good what with holidays and commitment to the regional series etc....

We can put it to the vote, but my feeling is we are better off just closing for the summer, rather than limping through until the autumn.

Opinions anyone?

I found the grass difficult also as it's very different to anything I have raced on before ! But I did enjoy it !
The other option could be to race on conctrete (school car park)! With some foam tyres I used to race on contrete and it was mint

We would also need to sort some means of cutting the grass. Petrol mower anyone?

Also I am not sure what the access to the school will be over the holidays, I am sure Carillion will want to get cracking while the kids are off which might affect things.
