Thumbs up 15th May - Main Field Madness!!!

Ok guys after the success of last weeks event we have decided to put on another event on the 15th may
Also with the GNR postponing their WRCA round it means peopl can still get some competitive racing on a date already in their diary. I know ill be making the most of my pass so i dont get roped into DIY hehe....
This time the course will be grass but with our new wooden jumps to make things more interesting

Hope you can all make it!!!

Steve ran his 8th round last week and wear wasnt too bad, we can prob accomodate a heat if enough turn up. Although we would need to sort some further fencing due to size n speed of your big toys .
Will check with rest of committee and post on here ASAP

I'm in too.

Ive got no objections to the big toys coming out to play either, Steve's 8th electric didn't do much damage in the 20 min or so it was running around the track.

8th electric goes round well, we would have to think about track width and as Dave said, fencing.

Was a good weekend last weekend, be good to see a few more faces!

Thumbs up

Jamie 8th electric is ok if we get min of 4 for a heat, and ideally give us the heads up so we can plan/make the track with extra safety netting required!

Weather looks good, well its not raining at least
