Lytham Hall car show this Sunday the 2nd of August

I have not reserved any places as no one would commit to going. Admission on the gate is £6.50, but in the past they have let us show the cars and pay the reduced entrance fee. I will be in the Grapes Car park in Wrea Green at 9:00am for convoy over if anyone wants to join me.

The weather forecast is dry until 19:00 hrs

Next Club Meeting 19th August

I am aware that numbers at meetings are dwindling, and I don’t fulfill my R.O. duties properly due to my motorsport activities. Therefore I propose a different format for the next meeting. Meet up at the Phantom Winger in Preston AT 7:15pm (PR3 5JE) and lead a small run out to the Ribchester Arms (PR3 3ZQ) where we can talk and have some dinner. From there make your own way home whenever you like.

Click on map below for run which includes an old Hillclimb course as well to see the route.

Results post Barbon & 3 sisters on 4/5th July

Duncan had a good day at Barbon winning his class and beating a 390 SE Wedge, he also achieved a new P.B. and beat my best time at Barbon last month by over half a second. Unfortunately one of my friends Andy Larton rolled his car 4 times after already getting a new class record. Even more galling is that they decided to give the competitors an extra bonus run and it was in this run that he had the accident.Thankfully Andy was ok but a bit bashed about.

Andy Lynch and I both managed new P.B.’s at 3 Sisters and managed 6 runs before the heavens opened and stopped the racing.

Scores are given below plus some photo’s

Duncan winning again! bit of a “ringer” I think!

Lakes trip on 26th July to be put back to later date

So far only James and Julia Taylor plus Ray Morrison have expressed an interest in going on the 26th. Bill Campion, Andy Lynch and Jim Edwards have holidays and other commitments. I therefore intend to put the trip back to a later date when hopefully I will get more people attending. We can discuss the new date at the club meeting on the 15th July.
