There's a chance I might be able to make this, but will let you know. If not any chance you'll be at Snetterton on 24th? I could make that one.

I'll be there. Not much excuse as it's 20 mins from home.

I don't think the series that they have been competing in is at Snetterton, but I might be wrong

You're right Add I checked last night on their site. Looks like this is the last race of the Roadsport series. Oh well Snetterton would be closer for me but will see if I can make Rockingham.

The only advanced one is the 750mc Birkett race. Its a 6-hour endurance relay race around Silverstone Historic GP circuit.
James and I already have it in our diaries. I spoke to Richard Buckley yesterday... we are hoping to get a four car Tomcat team to run together - 1 in - 1 out relay race.

Its on Saturday October 28th... I'll keep you informed, but it may be worth penciling in ;)

Hi folks
Really looking forward to Rockingham next Saturday :twisted:

Qualifying is at 10:45 (25mins)
Race is at 15:50 (45mins)

We should be in garages 25 to 33. Not sure how many spare tickets yet, but we should have some.
p.s. we'll be testing there on Friday too.

Testing was bit of a mixed bag today... wet in the morning... lots of red flags... rear light cluster/bumper broken by an attentive m3 when i span.

James had a very good dry session in the afternoon, but it rained again for me.

Add has a ticket and we have 3 further spares if anyone is joining in. James wants to start the race tomorrow and did a good session on full tank of fuel so looks likely 8)

Great day yesterday. Biblical rain but the guys kept it on the island. Was nice to hear "and James Roberts takes the lead of the race". Was great to get back to the track. Didn't realise how much I missed it!

Looking forward to the next one.
