As last Saturday saw only myself & Si attend.
We decided to do some tyre testing.
Si ran both sponge tyres & msra spec silicon tyres.
Using two different cars he ran both types on both cars,
After long runs in all lanes with both tyres & cars,
The conclusion is neither type offer any real advantage overall.
Therefore I propose that both sponge & silicon tyres be
Allowed on the oval. At present this is just for the stox.
Once testing as been carried out on the Oval Nascars & proposed
hotrods a seperate proposal will be made.
Discussions to be had at the next meeting on the 22nd.
Ed.

Ed, I am not going to make it on sat, I will suffer the indignity of an orchidectomy if I go.

Ricky said last night neither can he as he has his little one these w/e' and david f has got Angela's birthday on the sat. Not convinced he is planning on holding her celebration at slotstox!

Keep it going, perseverance and patience req'd

Matt

Hi Matt
Hopefully someone will turn up to stop Si building an unattainable points lead.
There will be at least four people this week tho, as I'll have 3 (at least) of my kids with me + maybe a grandchild or two.

If anyone does want to do the Wisbech open can they let me know.
As our 3rd round & 2nd Golden Helmet qualifier is the same day.

Me and my dad are going to the wisbech open so if anyone wants the rockingham slotstox to still run someone else will need to unlock.

Don't forget this Saturday it's slotstox time.
Racing starts 12.30 sharp (due to my need to be at Cov stadium by 4.00).
This is the last race date for a while and may well be the penulimate Golden helmet round.

Slot stox saturday racing is being suspended for the remainder of 2012, we will discuss and agree the future at our AGM on 20th Dec. Reason for this is that we've not been able to establish a robust racer base for the Sat midday slot.
