Abingdon Motorsport Car-Nival Sprint Saturday June 7th

Post by Steve C » Tue May 20, 2014 10:49 am

As you will all be aware, the Abingdon Motorsport Car-Nival weekend is rapidly approaching.

Entry levels for both the Sprint and the Rally are looking good, with a good cross-section of cars on the list. All we need now, are marshals to help out over the course of the weekend to help keep your fellow Club members safe during the events. If you can help out on either, or both, days please let the Chief Marshal, Dave Whyman know what you can do to help. He can be reached at davewhyman@hotmail.com or 07831 671308.

As usual, there are spaces for camping available with the Stowford House barbecue producing food on both the Saturday and Sunday evenings as well as the bar and comedians to keep you entertained on the Saturday evening.

Please come along and help us raise an even larger sum of money for the guys at Stowford House and the Army Benevolant Fund.

The afternoon session on A3 post Abingdon course gave us awesome entertainment , with the really hot tarmac helping the grip that was missing in the morning :!:
The single seater tussle was impressive , Simon having to endure his previous Jedi performing so well in it's new owner's hands . He was extremely brave on entry and handled the exit well. Simon Besant gave us a show as usual even with the 2 year gap in practice , great fun :P I have to say that the most impressive driving from a spectators point of view came from several ESCORT M1 & M2's , all lifting an inside wheel well before actual entry and giving us a diagonal twist display on getting ESCORTS round a corner bloody quick ---- inside wheel up and outside wheel disappearing into their boot , absolutely awesome to watch and very brave . Disappointing to see the four wheel drive boys not demonstrating what's possible with their chosen equipment in the wet morning session though --------------- I'll ' duck ' for cover now before the abuse , sorry guys but the Escorts had it nailed , wet and dry :)
