Sunday at Bruntingthorpe

Postby Chris B » Sun Aug 15, 2010 5:55 pm

Well,what a great day,top marks to all you drivers,you all did a great job,Kirstywr1 was incredible, Tony was a mad man,hope your clutch is ok now,all the new guys were great,we did fall a little short on cars near the end of the day but we broke our record on taking £1265,Asda were well pleased so a massive pat on the back to all of you,we dragged a Corsa VRX on to take the Air Cadets out and keep a bit of pressure off the Subarus and an EVO did make a brief appearance.
Hope you all got back safely,got to say I am really pleased with the day,it all seemed to go really well this year and with Roger and Martin helping on the gate and Mrs Megarman doing the accounts we had a slick operation going.
Well done again and thanks.
Heaven can wait....I'm playing with my scooby.

Well done Chris and Rosy, great day as always. Good to have such a great turn out, and raise money for the Charity. Didnt get to say goodbye to a few people but good to catch up with a lot of people!

We are going to ask for 2 gates next year,maybe we can do a Subaru gate and a mixed gate,got to be worth a shot methinks.

If anyone wants a copy of the fullsize pics just pop me a PM.

We're gonna have to work on the parking guys !

Top day out everyone and glad to see we raised a good amount of money again this year. Car did well considering the pasting i was giving it - tyres slightly melted but still plenty of tred on them so still legal.

Nice to see everyone again and enjoyed one particular lap where a young lad was in the front saying "faster faster" and his mum was in the back saying "oh my god i hate this slow down"... Naturally i listened to the kid and went faster :)

Cracking day once again.

Big thanks to Chris and Rosy. Even though I couldn't drive this year it was great to support the event, add a few quid to the charity and generally catch up with a few people.... even the miserable Pooster was smiling.
