Itchy feet

Post by john bevan »

In order to get through the gray January Gloucestershire days, it would be good to have some kind of motorsport to see us through to April. Would anyone like to do some karting prior to the season, if so I don't mind organising something central or southwesterly.
Bob- yes you are allowed to take part.
No- points don't count towards challenge unless Katy tells me otherwise!

John, Will you need Mrs. B's permission for this venture?
Many thanks for including me in the invite, but I have only tried Karting twice, and realise it is 'No Sport For Old Men'. Or maybe I am just a hopeless failure as a driver. Howver, I do have a camera!

Sorry to have missed you on he weekend.

Cheers,

Bob

Excellent idea John

I'm in as well and dependent upon when it is, I might be able to rustle up another 1 or 2 budding drivers who are always keen to get behind the wheel.

Thanks

Simon

Hi John,

I would love to join you - it might be the only racing I get this year!

Thruxton has a very good outdoor circuit for South West and for a more central venue Daytona at Milton Keynes is very good (but then I would say that - it's only a mile away!), I have also been to Sandown which was pretty good but probably too far south for most.

Happy new year!

Sean

Gentlemen- and any ladies (Sharlie, Mary?) how about exclusive use of the International circuit at Birmingham for £50 each for a half hour endurance race? We need 8 people which does not seem a problem. I hope Brum is accessible to all.

Details here:

PS Can someone bring along a slow friend so that I can beat someone!

:OO:

Tim H - don't think you can bring your own kart.
Tim A- does Darren want to come along and play?

I'd love to join you all but any idea of dates? It looks a nice little circuit.
