This Saturday will be our 1st club meet of the year.. 😂

We've added a astro pitting / parking area and hope to add more as we go.

This Sunday sees our 1st regional of 2018, hot food van will be present 👍 😀
Please keep to the rostrum side of the field and do not try to drive around the bottom

I would like to get down to the club meeting.

Are there restrictions regarding Saturday running if competing in the regional the following day?

I am probably making this up in my own mind, but something about track and week before ( is it nationals)?

Cheers
Garry

Unfortunate...I donít think this is a good idea as regards people who are doing the regional but canít make the club day. Others get an unfair advantage over those people whether the track gets altered or not.

By the same token clubs, especially new ones trying to get established, need all the support and income they can get. Everyone wins in that scenario, try to see the bigger picture

I understand that Darren...but...clubs only get two regionals a year,so two weeks out of 52 wonít hurt...

We actually can't run 52 weeks straight, be great if we could but weather restricts us quite a bit and due to track alterations etc I've not ran my own car on the track yet..
As regards having unfair advantage, it's no different to racing weekly at your local track, ie I only race at wbmcc, broxtowe and rhr when's it their regionals.

The track will be changed enough to make it fair 👍

Donít ge me wrong here Dave,Iím not having a pop at you or your club at all. I think youíve made at great facility at BMR. I just donít think there should be club meets a matter of days before a regional. Iím sure we had something in place in past years where you couldnít run on the track the week running up to a regional.
Iím sure itíll be a great day...and hopefully some sun☀️☀️☀️

Iíll shut up now,you can give me a slap on sunday🤣

A great start to the outdoor season at BMR on a scorching hot day. Ben Smith took the A final today.













Thanks to everyone making our 1st club meet a great afternoon.
