Club report 2013

2013 has seen another busy and successful year for the club.

 Indoor finished well, with the expected dip in numbers not occurring which left us struggling to run four rounds to the end!

The snowman series was well attended by all with quite a few newcomers coming to practice for the national later in the year

The outdoor season started with our regular Easter meet, hastily scheduled after A1 pinched the date and then had to cancel because of a flooded track!

The mid-east regional series started at Broxtowe with 2wd, there were 83 entries an encouraging start to the season, 4wd and short course returned in august, 60 entries over the two classes, pretty good to say it was the last round of the championship!

Short course returned to Broxtowe in May excellent numbers again over 60 entries across the three classes.

The only on road action this year took place in June with the BRCA Clubmans meeting. A fantastic event with amazing face book feedback and good weather!

The following weekend saw the BRCA off road national; unfortunately the weather was not so kind! Mixed conditions on the Saturday saw some odd round scores! Sunday was more consistent. The event went well and the club would like to express special thanks to Eugene Galley for going the extra mile to make sure the event was a success. 1st to arrive on Thursday morning and last to leave on Sunday night.

Friday club nights went ok with the usual interruptions from the weather.

Indoors started as the last finished, very busy! Unfortunately three rounds seems the norm now, with many drivers electing to run two classes it makes it impossible to do anymore!

The future

planned events, the snowman series continues outdoors over the winter, also an indoor series mainly for on road. The Christmas cracker returns for a two day meeting this year 28th/29th dec. Entry forms for all these events are available on the website.

National events for both on and off road have been applied for the results of which should be known very shortly.

Work to complete outdoors includes painting both buildings at request of the council, connection of electrical supply to the new building and general upkeep.

It has to be said that helpers for both maintenance and at events has been woefully inadequate this year and has to change. The committee would like to remind all members that it’s their club and in their interests to get involved! The continued success of the club depends on it.
