Hello folks

Real name is Jim, work and live in North West of England, just moved up from London where I raced at Molesey SC, with a fine bunch of fellas. Ive been out of the scalex scene for a year whilst moving home and settling down to a new way of life. Just in the process of having a house built with an adequate loft... and Ill have a track set up (soon to purchase all I need).

I wondered across this forum a few months ago - Ive taken a few hints and tips from the messages posted and kinda like what I see and hear on here.

I might not be the most knowledgeable and will occasionally ask a few questions in the required feilds.

Cheers

Given time tho - Im sure the job will change.... and will get a sensible amount of social time to race at a club... I see a few around the area...

I would certainly love to have a look tho... any you would recommend??

Hi Cool,
welcolme to the forum. i have nevery raced at molesley but i have met a few of their members, don stanley, julian edwards and jamie pleasance. all pretty useful drivers. as you now live in the northwest it will be great to see you at pendle or preston one evening for a race? if your shift work allows. GRAH 1 lives in your area and may give you a lift. as james pointed out we are all very friendly here in lancashire.

Wow... small world - yeah - I know Julian, Don and Jamie..... havent seen the fellas in a while... I keep checking the TT raceway site for updates on how the championship is going down there.... good club they've got - friendly fellas... The one thing about the club is the track - Its the only routed wooden track ive driven on and it trained me to set cars up real well.... you have to set cars up tight for it to go real well - and that commutes over to plexi track (which Im in no doubt you guys already know).

I know Pendle - been there a couple times since moving up here - but never to a race night... Ive only ever seen the track in the shop. Im trying not to go to the shop to often at the minute..... Ive got money to spend but no "house" yet...

As soon as Im in a position to go to a race night (or practice) Ill let you fellas know on here a few days before and we'll get something organised - which ever night will depend on the club I suppose. It'll be good to make a few friends with a similar interest and meet in the flesh. Ive no probs with needing a lift, got a couple of MG's to run about in.

Have a gr8 bank holiday weekend fellas...

Hi Cool,
the track at preston was designed and built by the same manufacture as molesley, MDF, polyurthane & steel braid. so you would be right at home. (pretty tough on braids, remember that?)
