Can you please confirm the dates of the remaining rounds? I would like to make at least one but have to book unpaid leave to race on a saturday so it takes some careful planning to balance everything.

Cheers

Any chance of the chilli again? ......... the only time they did it they sold out within minutes, and they never did it again :cry:

Now if I were the chef that would tell me that it was popular so I think i'd have bought a lot of mince in advance ;);)

Just a thought :)

P.S. have they ran out of those crappy sachets of sauce and vinegar yet ............ hopefully the next time they pop to Costco they'll buy some LARGE bottles of both and stick them on the table ...... much more cost effective? :D

In response, we will take off the Cottage Pie and will put the Chilli on as a special again. It wasn't as popular as you make out it to be and only 3 people asked for it after we had ran out. Due to limited fridge/freezer space, we are only able to stock so much mince.
We still have the 'crappy' sachets I'm afraid. In an ideal world, I would love to have Heinz sauce bottles on the tables, but it is not cost effective when they keep getting stolen! I will however, look at other solutions to offer Heinz sauce without increasing the cost of the food.

MASSIVE THANKS TO EVERYONE FROM SRCMMC!!!!!

THE TEAM: Captain Pupton (race control), John (frog) Spencer, Lloyd Storey and Ralphy Baby.

Commentators: Teddy and Mr Church

Especially Trish, the track tapping guru, commentator and lots, lots more.

Alec: Big supporter (sachet moaning) of Moto Arena Tuesday evenings and all over events.

MOTO AREA: For the best venue in the country!!!

DMS and X Factory UK: For supplying the carpet needed for the series.

Thank you everyone that came and enjoyed a great day out, without whom it would be a MASSIVE waste of sooooooooooo many hours, cheers guys.

Please get booked in early (NOW) for the 3rd round, Feburary 12th as I've a feeling it's going to be busy! Hope to see you there for another good days racing or just to watch the world class displays by Martin and Boots (among others) as we did today.

Thanks again,

Matt Owen

Really enjoyed it yesterday guys, thanks a lot for all your hard work. It was my first visit to the arena and I was really impressed.

The track was excellent, one of the biggest indoor tracks I have ever raced on- you don't get many where laptimes are over 20 seconds long. I thought the layout was challenging, but really rewarding when you nailed a good lap.

Only comment I have is, I thought the chicane on the entry to the straight could be reconsidered- I think certainly in practice it caused a lot of issues as it wasn't easy to judge so far away and led to vehicles hitting it and lying in the middle of the straight. With the dark tarmac and grey carpet, it was difficult to see upside down cars on the main straight which led to some breakages. Possibly just make it a slower chicane where by you have to use a lot of steering or use that element nearer the rostrum.

Apart from that, everything was really great and thank-you for a good day out. :thumbsup:

Well done to everyone on the track building, race control, commentating and of course the Moto Arena for the excellent facility ............ all was spot on.

I'm glad I pushed to get the chilli on the menu, everyone seemed to enjoy it, and hopefully the Cafe made plenty of pennies out of it too. Amazingly I didn't have any again as her-in-doors reminded me as I left the house that we were at my daughters for dinner Saturday evening and we were having CHILLI .......... typical LOL

Looking forward to the next one, it promises to be excellent.

Keep up the good work everyone.

Remember that there's racing every Tuesday evening at this excellent venue and all are welcome. This Tuesday should be busy and remember you'll need to get there early for a pit space .............you know what these Germans are like with putting there pit towels down ;):woot:

Really enjoyed the meeting on Saturday, big thanks to the Silverstone & Moto Arena guys for a great day.

I didn't do particularly well, but as it was my first big-ish off road meeting for about ten years or so & my first with a new car (I did a couple of meetings last year with a vintage RC10), I didn't do too bad.... I just can't get used to how big the jumps are these day!!lol! Think a few changes to the car & with some practice, I hope to improve next time :thumbsup:

The only criticism i'd say is that you couldn't hear the start numbers being called out by the computer at the far end of the rostrum (away from race control) where I was standing. Alot of the time I think we were guessing when to start on the stagger, causing some confusion!

P.S burger & chips was well yummy!
