Hi Guys

Trunk Brummy's mother lives 20 miles from track.. currently 4-5" of snow on the ground :( we just have to hope luck is with us :!:

However, if it all happens we have invested in all the Go Pro gear, so you can all use it on your laps only takes a few mins to attach to the car !
We have power.... Via Generator, can someone bring a laptop/Ipad :?: ... Most important if you all bring a flash drive with you so you can takeaway your own record of the fun you have had :!: :!: :!:

Phil :D

Hi All,

I'm only about 5 minutes away from Curbs and yes we do have a fair bit of snow sadly.

I was hoping to work on my GTE today to get it ready for its MOT on Monday, but I'm not going out in this :(

Image

Roads are fairly clear though to be honest, just don't get carried away on the country lanes :!:

Hopefully it will be clear on Tuesday and give you guys a chance for a play on the track, which I'm very much looking forward to watching :D

Take care all!

Here's hoping it will clear. Didn't Nick say that Curbs was being used all next week? If someone is using it on Monday, it may be cleared a bit for us? As long as they do use it and not abandon the day... :?

I will contact Dave Paterson late Sunday and see what he can tell me.

My presumption is that we have made a commitment and will proceed.
