We aim to get there about half 9. Hopefully we'll be able to pick up some breakfast along the way.

We had a really good day yesterday, it was a lot of fun and very nice to see everyone again. The karts were beautifully presented and the quality is spot on. I have a couple of photos which don't do them any justice because they came out blurred. Sorry chaps after all the effort  you put in to get in grid positions.

What a great day that was, tremendous fun...and the Masser behaved it self all day :-)
Love the photo Jim, why don't you turn it black and white or sepia, I recon it would look totally period.

Yes, it was great fun, and lovely to meet some new builders and karts. Many thanks to all concerned.

I had a laptiming app running in my phone, so here are some useless stats to make of what you will!!
Track length 0.42 miles
A typical competitive lap was around 54 secs which gives a lap speed of 28 mph
My max speed recorded - 39 mph
My total distance run - 29 miles, but I missed the first session.

Hi Graham
Just want to thank you for organising a brilliant meeting,  Lewis and Glenn both had a fantastic time.
Sorry I couldn't be there as I have just recently come out of hospital after having Meningitis for the 3rd time.
Seen all the pictures and they all look great. So please to see my car perform well for the first time out, looking forward to meeting you all at the next one.
Regards Graham A

The video is an excellent representation of what a fantastic fun day it was. It looks very professional, good skills Marek. What a lovely bunch of people to spend the day with. I am looking forward to the next one.

Marek, these videos just keep getting better. I'm looking to arrange another meeting sooner rather than later. Give me a little time and I'll float something. I'm aware we are now in the holiday period. Meanwhile if you identify any opportunities to meet in 2020 please contact me. BTW Marek, who was that dodgy looking bloke in the closing shot?

Thank you everyone for making me feel so welcome. As it was my first "Real life / In the flesh" intro into into Ck , having only seen pictures until that brilliant Wednesday .
Also many thanks to Graham and Andy B who were brave enough to let me "out" in their Karts, excellent fun  ;D

Thank you again , Chris
