There are NC1 Clios and NC2 Clios in the club stock. By coincidence they happen to tally with the real cars being Mk1 and Mk2.

I think several of the club Mk1s (NC1) have suffered the common problem of the rear axle mounts failing, so we haven't used them for a while.

Looks like the call to GS bore fruit!

Explaining that finishing second means less tiring travel for the team and I get to go racing on Monday night must have got through!

Jim has another series in the bag as long as he turns up.
Well that makes for an exciting night then, as, depending on decent weather, I will be just off the M25 swapping unlikely stories with other ex 1:1 racers.

I'll just have to rely on you, Keith and Wes to keep Tony no higher than 3rd

So with restrictions being lifted we hope to get back to some racing as close as what we were used to as we can.

Tomorrow night (19th July) we will have the Bolwextric night which is using club cars.

If we have enough people we will run all 6 lanes, but if not we can run 4 lanes and add a couple of extra classes at the end.

It will be good to see people we haven't seen for nearly 18 months.

We are going to be restarting Monday nights on the 21st February. This night is aimed more at people new to the hobby or just not used to club racing as all cars /controllers can be supplied in house.

Scratch that, Covid has intervened.

We'll try again on the 28th.

Tony has heaters running 24/7 to dry out the track, so he can make a better assessment of what repairs need doing. Hopefully we won't go without our racing fix for too long.

In the meantime, Steve Ainscow has kindly invited us to have some racing at his 4-lane Carrera track at Three Legged Cross near Ringwood. I will organise a time with Steve.

No magnets, I forgot to ask about braking. I've suggested we take our Hornby NGTCs as well.

And the 16th seems the favourite date.

Is that still round pin 5 amp plugs Steve?

Local Screwfix has them for 1.26 each, so I might grab some.

I can bring you a NGTC car. Any preference? I have all types, and the great thing about them is any of them can win.

Racing postponed for this Thursday - track is still soaked.

Next week may be in doubt too.

I spoke to Tony earlier and he says that the track has now dried out. At the cost of one of the fan heaters, that couldn't handle the pressure and expired.

He has had a job cancelled and will be spending the next couple of days in the unit sorting it out and would appreciate any help with painting etc., if anyone is available. There is a chance that we could be back racing this week.(y):)

Spoke to Tony yesterday and he was quite upbeat about our chances for racing tomorrow night. That was with Tim helping him tomorrow, but unfortunately Tim has been called away on family duty.

So I will let you know definitely tomorrow.
