Default Mansfield club is moving upstairs

Exciting news for the club.....we are moving up one flight of stairs to a much cleaner and bigger area for our track.

Obvoiusly this is going to involve a bit of extra work to get the equipment moved so we are hoping to do this next Monday evening (13th May)

If anyone reading this will be available to help out it would be much appreciated! We dont want to have to do it on Wednesday as it will mean a much shorter race night.

There will be racing next Wednesday of some description, but just be prepared for a bit of setting up on the night, and maybe a slightly later finish lol. Once we are fully up there the race nights will be 100% more pleasant for everyone, this is a great move for our club, and opens up the opportunity for the odd weekend race meeting.

Thanks, John

I will be there for 6pm and the new carpet is very grippy and seemed to be very well liked by everyone , it's a great addition to the club and moving up stairs is even a better one as there maybe some heating for the winter and the possibility of some weekend racing but don't quote me on that the members of the commitee may give a more definite answer at some point in the near future

Sorry lads,
I wont be able to get there as im on afters but if y think you will still be there after 9.30 then count me in lol
The carpets great, lots of lovely grip.......you just have to learn not to turn in as early as before and also don't try coming to a stop too quickly while marshalling as the carpets slippery on the wooden floor and moves a little underfoot
Roll on getting upstairs with less/smaller pillars

Just to say a bit Thanks to all who helped last night we would have never of got this done on Wednesday and raced. I have to say the track looks mint.

I took some picture to show everyone how much better and bigger the area now is, the pictures don’t do it justice.

See you there Wednesday

For anyone who hasn't been to Mansfield before here's a picture of a typical track layout.

Its always good fun with loads of good banter, so if you've never raced at Mansfield give it a go.

Yep, I though I'd start taking pictures of the track so we can re create them if we wanted. Yes this track was amazing we with defiantly use it again.
