The Good News
First of all we have an absolutely cracking entry with 27 names
down for the 2 litres and 23 for the Moto/DBTec/1800/1600s. Not
only are the leaders there but there are some old friends out for
the first time this year, and a few new names. I'm particularly
intrigued by the new Nick Edginton run F398.
The club's mid-summer (yes, we're nearly there) social event is
gathering pace, so don't forget to bring your delicious home baking
and if you haven't done so, give Simon a ring (01327 843056) or
to order BBQ tickets. After last year's effort by Dick Turpin
Catering, we're not touching THAT circuit again for food, and have
a whole new menu which should satisfy both the gourmets and the
gourmands in the club.
Our non-racing reporter is hoping to be present on Saturday, but
we need somebody to volunteer for a Sunday report - by race, by
class, or report on the whole day, it's all welcome. Please email
if you're brave enough. Reports are acceptable in any form doc,
pdf, hand written - you could even dictate them and send them as
an MP3 file (or wax cylinder if you're Jim Blockley).

The Bad News
last year that thieves were about in the paddock. Simon reports
that while we escaped at Rockingham the outer paddock had some thefts.
It doesn't seem to have been high value racing items but rather
cash and cards and the odd laptop/ipad.
Please remember to lock your stuff away, and dont rely on putting
it in a drawer in an unlocked motorhome/truck. Ideally choose a
secure lock (car or cab) and don't trust lockers on your truck or
trailer door locks. If you want to know why I've said this, please
do ask me when I'm wandering round at Thruxton or scrounging 8mm
bolts off you.
