from 1300hrs until 2200hrs.

Cost for the day will be 8. (newcomers free). This includes hot dogs.

Yes after an absence of over a year (due to a lack of racers),we're back at "Perkins". We'll be racing on the "full monty" ie all the track I've got (5 wide L's, 2 nascar ovals , the 45% kit & all the blank tiles). Please try and support this event to cover the extra cost of hiring the room.

Racing Mini z, Xmod, Iwavers......& F1's.

Club Champs MINI ENDURO (1 hour racer class, stock or modified) during the afternoon on the "full monty" track.
HFAY OLPS Season 8 Races 7 & 8 in the evening (both classes racer & F1). in the evening.

Make sure you bring extension leads for "piggybacking" ,the room is short on power points.

Track construction will take less time the more bodies we have laying it so do your best to be there as close to 1 o'clock as possible.

No kitchen facilities,,,, bring your own food and drink.....no shops nearby.... but the bar is open all day.

doh, i've got work til 5, so if i came straight away, i'd get there for 6.30 ish, but you're doing the "full monty" track in the afternoon, so i'm not sure whether or not it's worth me coming just for the HFAY, as it'll be all over by 9.30! :(

Good that your coming. Have everything ready to go and you'll get 3 hours of racing.
I'll have a couple of sets of batteries ready for you if you need them. Let me know.
Did you get your motor sorted?

don't think I'll be able to make it. Gotta get my big car setup and tested for a the end of season race the weekend after, so need some setup time at the outdoor track, and this sunday is going to be the only day I get that will give me the time to asses what parts I need to order.

Tom, will pop round with the F1 whatever I end up doing.

Great meeting guys! Can't wait to see next months HFAY board results!

Good to see Matt and Nobby and a new face, Rob. :)

Great endurance too!

Here are todays pictures (http://staffordminizracers.co.uk/picture_gallery/2009/gallery_10-11).

Here are todays club championship results (http://staffordminizracers.co.uk/club_championships/2009#heat_ten) and the overall standings (http://staffordminizracers.co.uk/club_championships/2009).

Winning today means that there's no possible way I will come anything less than first... But there's still everything to fight for, for Matt and Brian as there's only 9 points in it before the end of season drops!

I can't believe Matt took a break mid-race today! If he had picked up those extra 4 points over Bri - which he was on for, the gap would be even smaller!!! :eek:

Next month is the last month of this years CC, so better be prepared, aye, fellas? :D

Finally, not that you may have noticed, but the videos section of the site was missing a video I couldn't find. Well, I learnt how to download youtube Videos and here it is: my new monster truck (http://staffordminizracers.co.uk/video_gallery/my_new_monster_truck)!

See ya soon folks!

I've never been likened to Harry Hill before, usually Pitt or Clooney.:D;)
Great meeting and a large track to die for.
Shame you didn't make Matt, maybe see you this Friday?
Triffic to meet up with Matt (95 laps) Mk2 at last. Hope to see you again soon. Likewise your Brov and Nobby.
Thanks again to Digger for the spares, Tony and Brian for use of the car, and Tom for the lesson in track managment.:D
Finally Terry, if your reading this, try and make it to a future event.

yea it was a shame i didn't managed to race :(
i need to check when i'm working, but Friday sounds good as i didn't manage to make it to this meet (which i am totally gutted about! :( )
And it was also a shame i didn't manage to meet Mk2, who i originally got the AWD off, and have been asking questions constantly (i bet he get's annoyed :P) throughout!
