30th July 2004 | Club news ::.::.:..
Sorry for no updates in months, but not much has been going on really. The next meeting is on the 5th September.

Some of you may know that i had been planning big changes to the club early on in the year, this never really kicked off though due to the low numbers. Anyway, my ideas for the club still havent changed. I know that changes need to be made for the club to progress and come back strong in the next season. Just a brief idea of possible changes in winter 2004/2005 are:

-to appoint a second organiser of the club
-get 1/12 racing back as the MAIN CLASS! touring car to become support class
-run TC on foam and to buy a club tyre truer
-change the track markings.

Any other ideas are welcome, and will be considered.
Thanks.

16th March 2004 | 1/12 IS BACK!!! ::.::.:..
...Well thats the plan anyway. Expect to see us running more 1/12 at the club from April onwards. The overall aim for 2004 is to get this running as our main class again. Dedicated TC drivers dont have to worry though as we'll still be running them too.

I'm currently making arrangements for running a nitro TC series over the summer, that i have spoken to some of you about already. More details to follow.
