I know it's hard to avoid clashing dates but just thinking that 4 of the Saturday dates above clash with BRCA national events which are of course whole weekend events. Does this negate the positive idea of running Saturdays in the first place? Just wondering if anyone thinks if it will significantly affect turnouts. I would have liked to attend most of them but clashing with nationals leaves little choice for me. I will try to attend the September events tho.

Hi, just booked in for Saturday. Am returning to buggy racing after a long break so expect to be pretty terrible and turning up with a new car! I'm after some advice on tyres, i see generally people use Proline Hole Shots but I'm struggling to find them for sale online!

Can anyone recommend where i can buy them or a suitable alternative? Or can i buy them from SV on Saturday?

Thanks,

David

Hi Dave, you should be able to buy suitable tyres from the on site shop at Storm on Saturday,pm buggyman to see what he has in stock at the moment. He usually has a range of proline,aka,Louise etc tyres available
See you on Saturday
Steve

There should be a power supply for charging,you may need an extension though. If you have a power supply for charging it maybe worth taking just in case mate

Would also like to say thanks, really enjoyed the track and racing today. I had read a few negative comments about SV on here but none of them appear to be justified from what I saw today. Really nice venue, very well organised and a friendly atmosphere.

Loved the challenge of the track surface and the jumps. Really well thought out course with good visibility from the rostrum. Really hope the venue can get the attention it deserves!

Thanks again!
