I suggest you forget the practice have a lie in bed and arrive in time for the first Qually at 10.40 So meet at Tickled Trout at 9.00 and leave at 9.15
I wont be going as I am in a Sprint at Aintree on the same day and at another sprint on the Sunday so I won’t be at the next club meeting either.
I have received some info re http://www.motorsport-developments.co.uk who are based in Bispham. As well as engine mapping they have a dyno capable of running 2 &4 wheel drive cars. the prices allso look very reasonable. For three power runs the cost is £60 any further runs post timing changes etc are £10. They also do reuced prices for groups of vehicles so maybe the Blackpool region can get a group together. Have a look at the website for further info.
There have been a number of problems with the De Vere Hotel as a meeting venue due to speed bumps, service of food etc so it was agreed at the May Sunday meeting that we should change the venue for all future Thursday and Sunday meetings back to the Fairfield Arms which is just off J3 of the M 55. The first meeting back at the Fairfield will be on Thursday night the 13th of June.
This years show is bigger than ever with the region having a dedicated TVR display area around the roundabout at the end of Victoria Road West.
With over 150 cars booked, there will be plenty to look at.
Already registered is Julian Cooch, Jim Taylor, Paul Taylor, Bill Campion ,Alan Smith (Sagaris) Mike Smith (Griffith),me (Sagaris) and Mark Warburton
but we need more as the Porsche club will be providing 10 cars and we don’t want to be outdone on our own turf.
Collect your free pass from me at this months meeting on Sunday and arrive at the event before 9am
HUEY 509/LOACH 011 HELICOPTER HANGAR OPEN DAY
We had so many positive comments following our Open Days last year that we are delighted to announce our pre-season Open Day on Saturday 1st June 2013.
This is a great opportunity to visit the hangar and learn the history of these iconic helicopters, see memorabilia of both these and other aircraft and view footage of the restoration process and the moment our helicopter was reunited with some of its original pilots from the Vietnam war.
You will be able to examine the aircraft up close and our crew will be on hand to answer questions. You will be very welcome to take photographs and sit in the cockpit.
Should you wish to purchase a souvenir of your visit, our Huey shop will be open – take a look at our website shop to see what is on offer.
Admission is by advanced ticket purchase only as numbers are restricted. Please apply on-line at http://www.huey.co.uk/shop
Children (16 & under) £3.50
