The August event is in Frome, Somerset.

Get your mates along too. It doesn't matter whether they have standard M5s or not. It'd be easy to go the 125/250/500 splits (125 Standard M5/250 modified up to 13t motor M5/500 everything else!).

17th August. http://sweetnap-raceway.co.uk/race-dates/index.html

(I dont want to pre-empt anyway of organizing different ways of 'classifying' different spec bikes that arrive in my previous post, I'm going on what me and the Komrade would use for the East Coast Nitro Cup races to decide a winner, as at ECN we hand our transmitters over to each other whilst on the rostrum for the second heat).

Run what ya brung single day race at Sweetnap large scale off road track. Augest 17th 2014

http://sweetnap-raceway.co.uk/index.html

M5 at sweetnap (2 min 2 sec)


We will be running with the 1/5th cars guy, There should be enough covered pitting area for us all with pit tables but bring one just in case, no mains power I try and get my geny working it a 1.8kw so should run afew people of it but no promise It might wont to start for me, chemical toilet on site, hand out transponders as they run the old 27 system. , Race entry is 10 for non members.

Sweetnap Raceway is situated a few miles south of Frome, Somerset, or a few miles north of the A303 at Mere. For those of you lucky enough to have sat nav the track is on Holt Road, and the postcode is BA11 5HP. look for a farm with lorrys as there a lorry garage on site Drive though the farm yard and park near the haybails, the track entrance is on the left just before the metal gate.
