Driver of the night
Robert Harrison producing a very fast 4.550 on a boggy black lane. I think his dad had better watch out!!!!

John L, Graham and Garry have been doing some social distancing track building at our new premesis. We are using a lot of the old track , we have extended the main straight to 26.5 ft. The esses are now flat and don't go over the main straight and the back straight runs along the main straight instead of crossing over it. The problem corner on the bridge has gone yippee. The rostrum will be on the main straight and we will be running the opposite way around than before.

We have some very exciting news..... A former club member has been so kind and donated the use of a room to us. At the moment he wishes to remain anonymous. He is doing it purely to keep the club going, the offer he has made came out of the blue and has blown us all away. We will be moving the current track but it will need a bit of jiggling about to fit room, We are looking forward to new premises and a bright future. A massive thank you when all seemed lost. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸš™πŸš™πŸπŸπŸ

We have some sad news. The search for a new room has been unsuccessful. Therefore our last ever club meeting will be on Friday 20th March 2020. We have a BSL meeting on Sunday 15th March. It would be great to see plenty of racers there to give us a good send off. It would also be good to see any old members popping in to say hello. Please can racers that are coming let us know so we can accommodate everyone confortably and have a really good day. πŸπŸš—πŸ

A new decade and its not a good a start for us, we have been told that ymca is being closed for demolition at the end of March. At the moment we don't have anywhere to go, we are looking but no success yet. This comes as a big blow to us after the time effort and money put into our new track in 2019. The area round booked for February is NOT affected.
