General information for those planning to attend the final round of this year's championship.
The Premier Inn, North Wolverhampton, adjacent to Jct 2 of the M54 is the most convenient hotel, both for the club and the meal.Ease of access makes it attractive although they rarely have the cheap rooms offered by other Premier Inns.
Book on line or phone direct 0871 527 9184 (10p/min)
There is a B/B close to the club and closer to the meal. I have used it for visitors, Wheaton House Tel no. 01902 428841.It is on the main A449 and subject to noise from passing traffic,through the night.Its cheap around £32 B&B.
Alternatively the club lounge is available for the night,could sleep 6.
Have provisionally booked Wing Wah Chinese restaurant for the Sat.night. 7.30. £14 p/p. They have increased the range of food to include Indian.Visit their website for more details,
Can not quarentee there will be no birhtday parties being celebrated.
Wing Wah is only a 1/2 mile from the hotel,on the A449 towards Wolverhampton.

I'm really p
off now!
I couldn't find any P1's so I glued and trued four sets of zero grips only to find it was a wind up and they're complete s
. Gutted!

Anyway I'm going for a front wheel drive Mclaren with a 1:1 gear ratio, maybe with 10 grams of weight on the roof

Hi Malcolm,
Lee and myself from Molesey are staying at the Premier Inn and will grab some food at the restaurant there.

I think I'd better come to the meal after all. I wouldn't want to miss out on performance enhancing bhaji's. Not sure if they're suitable for vulcans though.

Thanks to Malcolm for hosting a very useful practice day.

A few things I've learnt:
1. Mclarens can fly!
2. In a head on, flat out collision between a Mazda and a Sauber, it's never going to end well.
3. F15's definitely don't work at Wolves. C1's all the way for me!

Until Saturday......

Now I've had a chance to calm down I'd like to thank everyone who's been involved in organising this years series. I've not entered into a big series for many years for a number of reasons, but I have to say I've really enjoyed myself over the five rounds I attended.
The atmosphere is always very welcoming and friendly (I've made some really good friends this year), there's a great diversity in tracks and surfaces that represent a real challenge and there's some really stiff competition right through the field.
I'm really looking forward to doing it all again next year and hopefully with the forthcoming rule changes we'll have some even closer racing.
Well done everyone.
