Hi all. We have had a complaint from the owners of the factory on Lewis Rd of three times this week people have entered the track via their driveway. On one of the times the people double parked in front of their company vehicles blocking them. When asked to not enter via this way they told the owner of the factory to f... off.
The driveway between the factory's is private property and is not to be used to access the track. People entering via this driveway are causing safety and insurance problems. These driveways are covered by video cameras and already vehicles have been identified that have entered via this driveway. If there is to many complaints the council can close us down and the track would be flattened. We have put in to much work into the track etc to have this happen and everyone will miss out. So if you are going to look at the track or telling anyone about it please enter ONLY off Eastgate Ct.

Please note that the track is CLOSED as we have started the repair work on the track.

And if you want to use the track once it is repaired, to just drive on or to race on don't forget to come down this Saturday 24th and give us a hand to do the repairs.

Some Scum bag has stolen the remainder of our pipe that was to be installed as track edging.
Please keep an eye out for orange HD PVC conduit 160mm x 4m and shorter lengths (as per the pic) Most of it had some yellow paint on it also 25mm holes drilled in it ready for installation.
If you happen to see the pipe can you let us or the police know.

Does anyone have a water tank and pump that is mounted on a trailer that they could bring to the track on Saturday? We still don't have any water on site and water is needed to do the repairs.

Does anyone have a vibrating plate/Wacker or roller that they can bring to the track on Saturday?

Also while I'm asking does anyone have a skid steer/bobcat that they could bring?

Thanks

Hi All.
Please note that the track will be CLOSED from Friday pm 13th Feb. for the week right through to the race day on 22nd Feb. Due to the large amount of use the track is getting outside of our race days also the damage the 1/5 cars that are not permitted on the track are doing we will need to start doing the repair works through the week leading in to the working bee on Saturday 21st Feb. to get the track ready for racing on Sunday 22nd.

Hi All.
We have a working bee at the track this coming Saturday 21st from 9:00am. And don't forget Sunday 22nd is race day.

We are getting machinery in to do work on the track but we need people there to help with the hands on work, other wise the machine work will be a waste of time.

On the last race day there was someone who said they should be able to get a 1200 ltr. tank trailer, can you get the trailer and could you please bring the trailer full of water? We do have a limited amount of water on site now but If anyone else has access to a water trailer can you please fill it up and bring it with you as we will need more water than we have for the track surface.

Items people can bring if you have them.
Plastic rake
Metal rake
Wheel barrow
Mattock
Shovel
And anything else you think may be helpful.

Thanks
Colin.

Hi All
Just a reminder of Saturdays track works and Sundays race day.
Looks like warm days both Saturday and Sundays race day, so don't forget to Slip, Slop & Slap. Bring a hat and sun screen etc.
The machines will be there around 8 to 8:30 so we will be starting around that time and try to finish as soon as we can to get out of the heat.
Hope to see you there.

Next race day is coming up next weekend Sunday 24th. At this stage the weather is looking OK, hopefully it stays that way. Also don't forget that due to having a 5th Sunday this month and our April race day being rained out, we are planing to also race on the following weekend on the 31st to make up for April.

Hi All.
Please note that the track is CLOSED due to the track and surrounds being to wet to drive or walk on. Any driving or walking on it at the moment is only doing more damage to the surface and creating more work for us, so please KEEP OFF.

There will be a working bee on Saturday morning 9:30 to around 11:30 to get the track ready for Sundays racing.

Hope to see you Saturday and/or Sunday.

We now have an online Pre Race Day registration form. http://goo.gl/forms/79x45dGGnR The idea is that by submitting you Pre Race Day Form before 6:00pm Saturday prior to the race day some of the computer set up can be done on Saturday. Therefore saving set up time on the Sunday morning so racing can get started quicker. This form can be accessed from your phone, tablet or PC and will only take a minute or two to complete. Make sure that when you open this link that you add it to your home page or bookmarks on your phone, tablet or PC. By doing this you will be able to access the form quickly to put in your registration in the future for racing.
Racing is this Sunday 26th so fill in your Pre Race Day form so we can see how it goes and give us some feedback on Sunday.
Don't forget we have the AGM on Sunday so remember to get nominations in for committee positions.
Thanks.
See You Sunday. (Weather Permitting)

A big thank you to our EMCC member that donated the sausages for Sundays lunch. Sorry for the delay in getting the BBQ cooked, that BBQ is now on the scrap metal pile.

Thank you to the committee members, club members and non-members that have supported the club through out the year, behind the scenes, on race days and at working bees etc.

Thank you to Glen from Ring A Digger for donating your time and the bobcat several times to do repairs on the track.

Thank you to Jared from Living Extensions for donating your time and the Kanga machine to do repair work on the track.

Thank you everyone and from EMCC we hope you have a great Christmas and New Year.

See you next year.
