The fifth and penultimate round of the Winter Warmer series takes place this weekend at Eden Park Raceway.

We are hoping for another good turnout and think that there may be a number of new driver/car combos on show.

We are also pleased to confirm that MK Racing will be present with their shop although for obvious reasons, Marc will only be carrying a limited amount of spares including the necessities such as wheels, tyres, etc. If you want something in particular brought to the track, have a little courtesy and drop him a line to arrange it beforehand to avoid disappointment.

If you have any other questions, you can always contact me through this site.

Lee Martin is coming - not sure if this is a good or bad thing though :p


We also here that an Aero may be making its debut...

You can book in on the day but it would make things easier if newcomers to the club could send through their details (BRCA, Formula, Class, Chassis, Xtals, etc) it will save time on the day.

Thanks

I dont know really...

He just sent me a PM and said he was like this really good up and coming driver, and he wanted to try his new toy car round the track. I said this was OK as we were looking to encourage the younger racers!!!!

Brookie - can you look into updating the membership forms as we discussed last weekend.

Some people (no names) are looking to use the EPR track in the summer evenings for National practice so if they all become full members, they will have that facility...

Thanks

hopefully with the new car i might be able to get somewhere higher tommorow?!

dave four raffle tickets please!its for a good cause and i really,really want matts top prize!he he

plus its for a good cause and it benifits everybody who comes to epr.

if 100 tickets are bought thats 500, a huge difference for boarding up the rostrum(if you still do matt and steve)and towards everything else.

lets try and make that a target david,work yourself like a prostitute and take lots of money!!ha ha

matt seeing as andy and jon arent a definate would you like a hand around 7ish?

Chaps

Thanks for another great day's racing - truly awesome layout. It was nice and flowing and very rewarding - especially the diagonal table-top.

One of these days I will manage to get out of bed early enough to actually practice before the first round - here's hoping!

Anyway, I look forward to the next one.

Guy.

PS - Martboy21 - love the photo of my Lazer!
