Well, work would be happy if I ran the 22 but this is my time, so... 88 it is please!

Checked with the better half and I'm cleared to go... although Goodwood Revival is the same weekend. Might be forced to rethink if somebody wants me there but at the moment I'm not due to be working.
Excellent news nick hopefully you will be able to make it.
I'll get to work on the #88

I have already made some of the cars for our club members that will be running in this event I'll post up pictures of the cars & driver names gradually, starting with my car for the day matt kenseth's #20 dewalt USA made with global parts paint scheme.

Hi Keith

We have the hall booked from 9am to 5pm.
I'm hoping to get the track set up on Friday evening so we can get racing straight away.
The full address is st martins church,St martins square, Basildon, essex, SS14 1DX
When on the one way system the police station on the right multi storey car park on the left go straight on as if heading towards the towngate theatre immediately on the left you will see metal gates/ fence & the glass bell tower turn left there and left again between the church & vicarage the hall is tucked in there
