Motivation 2017 – Entries Available

Motavation – entries now available if you didn’t do the bulk entry- see details below & the attachment.

“We are now in a position where we can open up for new entries for the remaining races, though we will continue to monitor whether we need to close entries based on numbers running in future races.

Before we announce this widely, and as I know that some of you have new members or others who missed the earlier closing date, can I give your members the opportunity to enter for all three remaining races for a single fee of £15. [If they should wish to enter for just one race, they should use the standard entry form that will be posted on our website, or enter on the night – single race entry fee £10.]

I attach a form that they should use and which is specially designed; please can you ask any such members to send their entries in individually by post to James Moss by the stated closing date, together with their cheque. To avoid any potential embarrassments in view of the special entry fee, these entries may not be made on the night.”

Heyford Park Air Base Races – 11th June 2017

Windy! It’s an airfield so probably didn’t expect anything less! Try pushing a buggy around it….

Interesting course if you’re over 35 and remember the Cold War and the F1 11’s taking off to go and bomb Libya and other such countries in the 1980’s. It’s also now where Thames Valley police learn how to deal with crime in Reading by the looks of it.
