Default Hinckley RCCC 2wd Regional 3rd July

Hi Guys

Hinckley RCCC are hosting the second regional at the new venue this weekend.

The new location for the track is Hinckley Rugby Club, Leicester Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire, LE10 3DR. Please use the Rugby Club entrance not the football club entrance (football club entrance nearest the roundabout). There will be a sign pointing you in from the main road.

We have a nice new container/rostrum for this year. It is a 40ft container with the rostrum on top. Plenty of room and great visibility of the whole track!! Major improvment and no hill to get up and down

Please obey the speed limit on site. Once you enter the Rugby club you will see the clubhouse on your right. Follow the road to the right until you see tennis courts on your left and then turn left following the road round. You will then see another 'unused' clubhouse and rugby pitch in front of you and the cricket pitch to your right. Follow the road to the right and you will then see the track.

Please park in allocated ' rows' on the grass. Gazebos will be pitched closest to the track with cars being parked further away. So please unload and setup your gazebo and then move the car to the allocated space.

Generators are allowed but must be in the allocated generator zones, please bring a long extension lead with you just in case.

We only have access to the area of grass we will be pitting and racing on. Please stay off all other areas with the exception of the road to get back to the clubhouse.

Food and toilets are located in the clubhouse and should be available all day.

Camping is available Saturday night for £5 a tent which follows on from our club meeting we hold 12pm-6pm on the Saturday. We will have a completely different track layout for the regional and the jumps will not be left out over night. There will be no practice allowed after the meeting on Saturday.

If there is enough interest then we may have a BBQ Saturday night at the venue.

Please arrive around 7.30AM onwards on Sunday. We aim to be getting practice going around 8.30/8.45AM I believe with drivers briefing and everything else done for a 9.45AM start. Booking in from 8AM.

We have Dan from www.pitside.co.uk on site to help out with your spares and tyres needs, if you need anything please ask him to bring it just in case

The track is grass with some man made jumps and some other features.

Tyres allowed are Schumacher Mini Spike, Ballistics and DBoots.

We have pre ordered nice weather again!

Please can every one make sure they have LiPo charge sacks as if you do not use one you may be removed from the results of the meeting and/or be asked to leave.

We may also have a naughty corner setup just in case

See you all Sunday
