really looking forward to this event! Haven't raced on polished wood with a buggy since 1995 - so it'll be basically a new challenge.
Fair play to Jim + Stephen + crew for getting this event organised.
See you on March 17th

That's to the exact location of the hall, there will be a sign down by the main road on the day pointing up to the carpark at the hall.

Well, 2 weeks to go - how many pre-entries have been received?
I'd say there will be 1 or 2 additional entries on the day from Dublin drivers.

Really looking forward to it, haven't raced on polished wood in about 12 years.

Yeah you can Andy, Pre-Entry's basically more just to save time so I can get everything pre-entered on the computer and rough numbers for a bit of food!

Yeah, it can be difficult to get the ball rolling on things like this.
I urge you to perservere.

We exceeded our entries target for the Xmas GP - but it took a sh*t load of effort. It appears alot of people thought it wasn't going to be great - so didn't bother coming. But they have since mentioned to me that they heard it was a great success and will definitely be down next year.

The first year for a big event is always the hardest. See you on the 17th

Are the schools open on St. Patrick's day? The bulk of the DIR regulars are now kids. It would boost the numbers in the 2wd class, and give a youthful air to proceedings.

I think the problem is there's been no active promotion of the GP in Craigavon - no poster or flyer, just word of mouth, which is no good for the kids, as they need something to take home to the parents (the ones that aren't at the racing, anyway).

I know Ed has asked around the regulars, so they at least know.

With other things I haven't been able to get up to DIR this year at all so havnt been able to actively push the GP side of things. Nearly all the kids in CVMCC have confirmed entries with me on Thursday night past there.

Also a surprise entry from Jim 'I HATE JUMPS' Lee!

Current Entry List:

4wd 1/10th Off-Road
1. William White
2. Derek McCloskey
3. Aaron Vance
4. Michael Bolger
5. Ed Acheson
6. Stephen Carson
7. Warren Cooper
8. Matthew Cathcart
9. Ryan Edwards
10. David Jenkins
11. Roger Skelly
12. Jim Lee
13. Regan Wilkinson

2wd 1/10th Off-Road
1. William White
2. Derek McCloskey
3. Stephen Carson
4. Colin Morrison

In 4wd I also have about 5-6 'probably' from the younger kids also who just need to confirm with parents etc.

I would hope get some more from DIR to help pad out the 2wd fleet as it is starting to look a bit sparse, haven't been as successful in getting some ex-buggy racing TC drivers down as I had hoped

There is still cars to loan available if anybody is wanting to race without a car, all my competitive cars are loaned out but there's a B4FT and a Yokomo MR4BX that I've been told can be leant to TC drivers etc.

Hi Stephen/Jim/CVMCC people

Can you answer a few questions for me, just so we can be ready for the 17th?

1. Is there mains power easily available in the hall? (will bring my own extension lead)

2. Do we need to bring a table? If not, roughly how big are the ones there?

3. Will there be duct tape available for taping down the AMB loop?

4. It's been previously mentioned that some carpet (50%??) was going to sourced for the day - is this still happening? Nobody will mind whether it is or isn't - just so we know what tyres to bring.

Really looking forward to this event - hopefully some fresh competition will encourage a few CVMCC members down to your track over the summer.

1 Bring an extention lead but there should be no problem with mains power

2 We should have enough pit tables for our visitors so you don't have to overload your car on the way up.

3 Don't worry about the Duct tape as we have our own supply

4 Schumacher Yellow compound of spike, mini spike, with or without inserts and I suggest you glue the edges as the carpet has a tendancy to pull them off the rim. I'd suggest it will be more 75/25 polished floor too

We have plans to use the kitchen in the hall to feed the drivers as well, but this may depend on how well the qualifing goes.....lol

It's not long now to the event and I hope the visiting drivers enjoy their day out on the Tyrone/Fermanagh border.....

Thanks Jim,

Just to confirm - roughly 75% polished wood and 25% carpet?

A bit of carpet or a mat to put over the loop would be good as well.

Stops any chance of the cars pulling up the loop.

Think the track designer...Stephen..... has the loop already under a carpeted area. Think that this Thursday night may be used to finalise the track layout and pitting area and of course we would never concider some practice laps as some may see it as an unfair advantage......
