Southerly and South West; Builders meeting
« on: 23 July 2021, 05:38:52 pm »
As we are gaining new members all the time and some of you are based in the South/South west, Would you be interested in  a meet up /general chat; about builds in progress/ future builds/ finished Ck (for those that have), New venues to try  etc.
I can bring my Austin along if it helps .

This was really on the back of Wed 21st July Trackday meet at Castle Combe Kart circuit, near Chippenham. We had several local very interested visitors , which was great , good to meet you guys. 
Plus other New members on this forum (living in the South/South west) this year have asked the question  are any events local to them .
This meeting or meetings would be open to all members , of course .

We do have another CycleKart event coming up , in the South; Brooklands August 7th Saturday, Plus in the South west; Haynes Museum Karting Circuit, Sparkford.  (end Sept, beginning of October) date TBC shortly.

I am based 15 miles from Taunton , (towards the coast) Between Chard/ Ilminster.

It sounds like a good idea, I would be interested to drop in to any meets in the SW, I am a fair way away up in Worcester, but it's only about an hour and a half to Taunton.

Hi Peter, Good to meet you Wednesday at Combe.

Depending on the take up.

 We may be able to come up a bit nearer you perhaps.
 
As there are guys on here from Bridgewater , Bristol and Burnham . But also Devon and Swanage .

Don't move your centre of meeting for me, I have a daughter down in Weston, and thus a bed for the night,  and frequently run down to Taunton for Model Railway  group meet ups.

Hi Chris,
I've only just picked up on this - put me down to attend whenever it suits - good idea.

Hi Steve ,  Yes i think i need to Re-post this under "Events".  It's easy to miss under "Off topic".

Do you know Ben Gyde , he is about 15 miles from you in Burnham . Posts on Facebook,  Think he has just built a Bentley.
Would be good if we could get him to come,  with it.

Just had a thought .....yes I know it's painful  ;D......  Why don't we make the Haynes Museum event Sept 29th, a Builders meet too. As it's located in the South West . We are there all day 10 - 5. Time to chat . Lunch in there excellent restuarant.  Plenty of finished CKart's .

Haynes meeting sounds a good opportunity.
I don’t know Ben, but look forward to meeting him and other ‘South Westerers’.

Well there's one on the Northern border that's in its infancy, though sadly I don't think I will be able to get down for the meet, but I shall try.

Great inspiration car. Looks like your well into your build.
Is that a reversing gearbox I see and electric start too?
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished car.
