    RWYB Drag race weekend 30th Sept/1st Oct

    Hi guys and gals, time for another trip to Shakespeare County Raceway (CV37 8LL), I realise that for some, Trax is also that weekend so I plan to be there all weekend, so those going to Trax but fancy this too can get a few runs in on the Saturday. Costs here are considerably cheaper than other places, gate admission is 12 (day) 22 (weekend), Race is 25 (day) 40 weekend. Admission in advance is even cheaper but that is a bit of a gamble with the british weather though. For those interested and fancy a go (and for those few out there that forget easily) Rwyb info is available here....https://www.shakespearecountyraceway.co.uk/rwyb.asp ...but in essence it really only boils down to Driving Licence, Crash Helmet, Clothing that must cover arms and legs, Gloves are only required if open topped, Car must be able to pass simple scrutineering checks (secure battery, no dropping fluids and nothing falling off the car basically), I look forward to seeing you all and hopefully some great Volvo racing action.

    I forgot to mention that for those stopping the weekend there is no charge for camping...

    Shaping up to be a great weekend, should have a number of Volvo's running both days and possibly Claymore might even beat his personal best time if we're really lucky

    must admit i've already got a ticket for Trax, but with all the chav's & queuing to get it have been having second thought. Plus could mean Avon is going to be quiet if everyone is at Silverstone

    Oh does that mean we have to start a list.....not been one of those on here for a bit.....

    and even better new is I've swapped my Friday night shift so hope to be there for Friday night and hopefully front of the queue Saturday morning.

    For a bit of fun I've added some extra bits to the list, Fill them in if you wish to, as it might make things interesting for others following the thread who can't attend and also for those racing, It will also make it a bit nicer for any newbies coming along to know who's who's and what sort of times we can do, afterwards I'll try and get the best times up so we can see who did what.

    So attending please copy and paste and add yourselves to the list below...thank you and we look forward to seeing you there

    Gutted just realised I've double booked for this, sadly I won't be flying back till the 1st.

    However I've double marked the 28/29 Oct last of the season so I'll definitely be there for the Halloween burn up!

    Will try pop to any in-between too.

    Doubtful for me Matey.

    There is one on 14th/15th October but highly unlikely I'd be able to make it.

    Martin probably would though
