Stretton Karting Circuit (Leicester) Sunday 5th May 2019
« on: 17 January 2019, 01:31:03 pm »
This meeting date is now confirmed for our calendar.
The circuit and clubhouse is open at 09.00 with the track open at 10.00.
We will be allocated a slot of 15 minutes of track time every hour during the day, with free access to the adjacent shale oval throughout the day. A cordoned area of the paddock will be set aside for our use.
Entry fee for competitors is £35 for the day. The clubhouse is open to everyone and the bar will be open and hot pizza is also available, together with soft drinks and snack machines.
We will be required to wear a crash helmet on the circuit. Period-looking racing gear can be worn for demonstration runs, but for serious racing full-face helmets and racing overalls are recommended, these are available for a combined hire charge of £5 for the day.
Of course spectators are welcome, and we hope to see as many people on the day as possible.

Excellent.
Do we need to pay deposit by a certain date, or just pay on the day???
Also, thank you for organising this :)

All been very quiet, was there anything decided about Stretton when at the Coventry meet up?
 How many competitors do you expect?
 How many 15min sessions?
 ideal 2 practice sessions, a heat,  and final, and if any non competitor is handy with a stop watch a handicap race?
 perhaps a driving test course on the oval?

 Just a few thoughts, not being pushy, honest, Cheers Geoff

 Hi Geoff. I can tell that you are warming up your engine already.😀 !!
 I will be visiting the circuit in the next few days to finalise details.
In the interim it will be very helpful to understand exactly how many competing cars we will have. (Running, Not necessarily 100% complete)

As I understand to date:

Geoff, Bill, Stefan,  Chris, Me, Sarah, Rhys. Making 7 total.

If I have this wrong, I apologise,  can you please let me know.

Yes I'll be there, no real distractions this week, so I'll have a real go at getting a running kart by the end of the week.

This is Chris S speaking, (not Chris B)

I'm hoping to have a motorized wooden box by then, not complete enough to run on the main circuit but I'd like to do some laps on the shale if poss.

Hello Chris S.
Yes test running around the shale oval should be fine.

I called in to see Nick at Stretton circuit earlier today to check that all is still arranged and to confirm that we have use of the shale oval on the day.

It will be good to see you. Cheers, Graham.

Stretton Karting Circuit is situated immediately adjacent to the Leicester Aero Club. (Signposted 'Leicester Airport').
The club house is normally for members only, but I have agreed with the Airport  Manager that we will be able to purchase both meals and sandwiches from the first-floor cafeteria on Sunday. Hopefully this should add to the interest on the day.

Ah yes, I was hoping to be running by now, all taking a bit longer than I'd hoped. Aiming to do the pedals, and the rear frame and side rails tomorrow, then a test run.
