Both Lee and myself thoroughly enjoyed our visit to you last night, what an awesome track!
I can't see putting a team together for this being a problem. I'll check with people at the club on Tuesday and let you know. Are you looking for teams of 4-6?

Cheers.
As i said last night, it's hard to attract new members but we will keep on trying.
No hurry for an entry for the 24 as i doubt we will be over subscribed.
I expect a Swedish team so in effect i will need 4 more.
Rules etc will follow early next year but i don't see any reason why they won't be the same as this years. Keeps it simple.

Hi,
We will certainly attend with atleast one swedish team. Read all about 24 hours from this years race and it seems to be the one race you should go to! It's fun to meet new faces and especially english ones, if they're as nice as Graeme's, Keith's and Matt's!!


I'll save all of my questions until you (Graeme) have declared all the regulations here. No worry yet but I must admit that I'm quite eager to build a race car (or maybe several) right away!


Cheers

All that time un-noticed. Kind of like one of your Transformers, hiding in plain sight.

PS: stuff the racing, just go for the steaks.
