Hi

Well, thats the first endurance event over and done with and it was a cracking day, 12 racers turned up to take part and make 4 teams of 3. We started off with a qualifing session to decide which drivers would be with who followed by 4x 1 hour sessions of racing so each team got their fair share of the lanes. Each driver did a 15 minuet session before a change over and I would just like to take this oppertunity to take everyone for coming along and taking part, it was a great day and a good laff and we had some really really close racing.

The results are as follows;

1st - 'Norfolk & Chance'
Dave Wisdom
Lee
Mal
Total Laps: 2019

2nd - 'Team Chuckle Brothers'
Stephen
Brian
Ryan
Total Laps: 1983

3rd - 'Team NSR (Newcastle Slow Racers)'
Paul Fletcher
Martyn
Mathew
Total Laps: 1949

4th - 'Team T.C.C.'
Tom
Chris
Colin
Total Laps: 1910

Also, a special thanks to Lee and his Mrs for putting on an excellent buffet!


And it was nice to see Steve Fracais pop in to say hi


Pics to follow and the trophy will be presented at the next practice event.

Paul - Did you get those pebels cleared up?

Just want to say a very big thank you to Stephen, Paul, Martyn, Lees superb catering manager partner and everyone else involved in staging TSCCs excellent 1st Endurance event. Congratulations to all the competitors; especially Lee & Mal from 'Norfolk & Chance', who were great team mates and did a stirling job throughout the entire 4 hours - Well done chaps

Well now you mention it, I will have to tell everyone what you said.

It was towards the end of the endurance race & there was lots of small bits of rubber just outside the racing lines.

Owensy turns to me & said "have you see all the pebbles ?"

I just gave him a blank look, then I said "what you on about, pebbles" so he points the bits of rubber & again said "the pebbles".

The penny drops & I turn to my not very clued up mate & say "marbles you numpty"

Steve; Many thanks for taking the time and effort to seek us out; and also thanks very much for delivering the spare parts - now thats what I call 'London door to Newcastle door service'!!

Perhaps next time you could stay on for a race or two?

Great to see you.

Keep in touch.
Dave

Hi Steve

Just to echo what Dave has already said really, thanks for popping in and sorry I didnt get to speak to you but I had a look at the Volvo you are making and it looks great, some real hard work gone in to that, thanks for bringing it along
