Racing is Racing - Racing is fun

Racing is racing and we are still racing on the weekend, thanks to the people at Pembrey and the people at Hottrax.

I'd much prefer to be racing at anywhere than sitting at home waiting until next year, winters are so long already.

I have to say that I had a brilliant weekend there in August and was a bit saddened that it would probably be the last time we would race at Pembrey.

I was sad and pretty cross, and really angry with the people who have made such a fuss and caused one of the great places in British Motorsport heratige to close, but In August I thought we would never see Pembrey again, I was wrong. Although we may never see Pembrey again, again, we may well be at Mallory in the future.....

But most important of all is RACING IS RACING - RACING IS FUN! what difference (apart from the journey) does it make where we are?

so a big Thank You to all the people who made it possible.

We all love racing and I'm made up that everyone got us a race back on. At the end of the day no one at hottrax knew this was going to happen. I do feel gutted for all who've lost money but the people to be angry at is surely the landlords of mallory that wouldn't set the rent at a sustainable rate. It must have been obvious to them that the place would go belly up

Great sentiments Matt and Jim

Hottrax have made the best of a bad lot

Any change this late in the day was going to upset someone

I have read elsewhere on the net about Pembrey not being a suitable replacement, makes me wonder what would be, Cadwell in November maybe, with the clocks having changed by then trying to fit everything in would be harder.
So Saturday I will find myself driving an extra 80 miles and having to pay that extortionate 13.40 toll for crossing the bridge into Wales and be thankful that the season still has a race day to go
