Default Regional Round 2 Boughton Raceway

With only two weeks to go now I thought I would post some info regarding camping etc.

As some of you know, we have masses of camping area for those who wish to arrive on the sunday. Im guessing some of the southend crew may wish to camp as it is a good two hour journey for them.
Unfortunately we do not have power or running water on site. Therefore please bring your own generators/power and water. There is a garage just up the road with a small spar shop for any supplies.

If you could let me know if you intend to camp we can arrange a few things. If there is enough interest I wil organise a BBQ for sunday night, and a few beers.

Camping will be available from 1:30 sunday afternoon, however the gates will be locked at 9:30 and opened again monday morning. If you plan to arrive after 9:30 let me know and I'll open the gate when you arrive.

Again, if you could just let me know as If no one plans to camp I'll stay at home Sunday night in bed!

Thanks, and see you all in two weeks

Barry.

What time does the actual meeting start?

Is it basically open practice from open time until the meeting starts or is there some kind of controlled practice?

Hoping to start the meeting for around 9:30. I'm thinking of holding 1 round of timed practice then into 3 rounds of qualifying followed with three leg finals.

Camera never lies. I am sure the opening sequence of "the trailer" shows uncontrolled practice. A Durango piloted by a drunken/stoned Adam West.

I like the idea of timed practice saves having the mad bundle onto the rostrum or 20 cars going round the track at the same time

That's the idea. I plan to hold one round of timed practice in heat order, that way we get to double check the timing gear is picking everyone up. Don't worry about space on the rostrum though, you can get about 30 people on it!

Carl - I reckon it had more to do with the 'green' fumes coming up from the marshall under the rostrum Now who was that...

Although saying that, I generally can't play pool or darts until I've had a few beers so maybe could be onto something there

Ok, here's the timetable for Monday. Gates open at 8:30, booking in from 9:00-9:45. Timed practice 10:00-10:45. Round 1 10:50.
Hopefully the weather will be kind, the forecast I have just seen shows Monday as being the best day of the weekend with sunny spells expected.
Please refrain from wheelspining, donuting or handbrake turning when driving in the field, the land owner does not appreciate it.
Looking forward to seeing everyone Monday.
Barry.

I can't see that happening.

Weather forecast has changed everyday this week for the bank holiday weekend and I would expect it to change again before Monday comes round!!

Forecast doesn't look good on Met Office & BBC right now. Fingers crossed they've got it wrong...

On & off showers I can cope with but persistent heavy rain as forecast I won't travel for

The forecast appears to be changing every hour! When I checked yesterday evening it was for sunny spells, then an hour later it showed rain! I'm doing an anti-rain dance right now!
