Here you go... This is no attack on A1 Racing Club, but bearing in mind this is a National series and racers invest a lot of money travelling to support these meetings and the championship.... it's over an hour each way 110 mile round trip for me and i'm fairly local!

this was situation at 6pm tonight... see what it looks like tomorrow in comparison.









pretty gutted my trip over today for some set-up time was wasted... i love racing in wet but 2 inches of standing water is a big no obviously.

If a decision is left till last minute.com then we lose another round and a dreadful end to series... there are a fair few drivers eager to give shiny new trucks some action and still final positions to battle for!

being sensible +1 on Broxtowe if it's possible with club organisers... new rostrum means a different challenge to their round of the 2012 series.

Default Broxtowe

I agree with you mark the new rostrum and Broxtowe makes it completely different. And also it would be a sad end the the series not to race...

Default last round

On a personal note, I need to do the last round to have enough scores to count, what would happen if it's not run, does it become 3 from 5 instead of 4 from 6 ?

For me personally I'm hoping the track can be swept and the water cleared so the meeting can go ahead as have a two hour drive to get there plus a hotel room booked that if I cancel now I have to pay for. So hopefully all going ahead or moving the meeting to Broxtowe.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely want the meeting to go ahead if the track is raceable... Even better if it does get switched to broxtowe though as it'll save me an hours drive !
