Curborough 26 April 2011 - Test Day

Post by jonathan555 » Mon Apr 04, 2011 10:22 pm

Guys,

I know it's short notice but I'm having all on to keep up with my job at the moment let alone spend any time on my or car or the comp sec. You may have seen an email from Nick re the test test day (thanks Nick) so at least you have had some notice. Anyway as Nick said we need ten confirmed entries at £55 a go so if you could let me know soon if you're interested that'd be great.

perhaps advertising it a little wider may get some non-compies out? 26th April doesn't give many clues - timings, what kit do they need, WHERE IS IT :-), etc

Ahh yes your right Jim, sorry I am assuming its at curborough where we had it last year and i seem to remember some non compies attending who if i remember just brought their cars and possibly a helmet and had a great time :shock:
So maybe someone will follow with some better info than me :roll:

Likewse, I assume it will be Curbs and I'd know what to bring and what to expect for my £55 (if I wasn't at work :twisted: ) but this is the first place that budding compies & youngsters will come out and meet the big boys - it needs to be well advertised and really pushed by ALL of the compies IMHO?

I agree that it needs publicising for the benifit of all especially the likes of us compies who want this to take place :twisted: and to introduce new compies to the scene :D
Not sure how well this has been broadcast on here about a test day, this is the first i have heard but i have been out of touch as late :?

Guys,

I E Mailed all the registered compies a couple of weeks ago and got no responses. :(

Unless there is a suddden "rush"I cannot see this happening ( although I am up for it).

As per another post, the 7th May Curboro is a doubble lapper at only £75 and will work pretty well as a season "opener" if you are not doing anything sooner :D

I tend to respond here as it's a wider audience .
By now it will be pretty well known that my car is spread all over the garage floor at the moment and I've not hidden the fact that I will miss the buzz terribly .

Can't fix a car and do a full season on the same budget :shock:

Me and Emma are up for it if we can bring the Megane Coupe Sprint Car? The SS1 won't be ready by then sadly.

Guys, it seems that the email that Nick sent out to the compies and subsequently received no replies summed up the general need for or interest in a test day. Therefore there will no test day this year.
