Freebie outings Mono members enjoyed in 2015


There were a number of occasions in 2015 when Monoposto was invited to be present for promotional activities and the members who attended were rewarded with both free track time and free admission to the events themselves

In February the hardy bunch of Mary Whittaker, Kevin Couling, Daryl Jones and Pedro Ferreira took to the track for the MSVR Media day at Brands Hatch. This provided the club with some excellent tracking photos and video… what a great day, with free practice time in the afternoon as well.
The Media day has been a regular with MSVR for several years so expect a late Feb early March opportunity for your car to ‘star’ in 2016.

Then throughout the season, Kevin Couling took on the role of Monoposto ambassador by working with the organisers of the various ‘Retro’ events to have Monoposto cars on both static and on-track display. These events started at Snetterton where Ewen Sergison got ‘into’ the spirit (is that car a Spirit*?) of things:



 

 

Further events included:
Tunerfest at Brands Hatch - Sunday 21st June  http://south.tunerfest.co.uk/
Tunerfest at Oulton Park - Saturday 11th July http://north.tunerfest.co.uk/
Petrol and Pistons at Croft on Saturday 22nd August http://petrolandpistons.co.uk/

The organisers were very appreciative of our presence and the potential interest in racing with the club (from tuner people who, despite spending a fortune on their cars, still thought racing was outside their budget – they were surprised to learn it isn’t) was very good.

For 2016, Kevin reports the organisers are considering upgrading their events to allow us to have some demonstration races.

Do come out and support the Mono PR effort… and get yourselves some free track time as well!
