However, I may still be able to do an afternoon slot but can't commit until I'm told where I'm spending the evening of the 18th :D
Your expectations are obviously very high but I've heard on the Cheshire grapevine that its a quiet night in with a takeaway....apparently its all the birthday boy is up too these days :wink: :lol:

See you at the test day :!:

What's that Corky, your 21st second time around PLUS TAX?

Mikey, run open headers, far more suited to your style. Block and tackle drama was a real nuisance, given the setback and the unknown teething issues (and there will be some) I just hope you can get it together in time for the season!

Ok to date we have 6 full days (@£75) 2 half days (@42) 1 half day CMSCC (£45) total £579.
Cost of the circuit is £800. I can ask if they are willing to sponsor some of the cost but over £200 is probably too much to ask.
Do we have any more takers?

It will be a real shame if this is cancelled.

Amazed at the lack of CM intrest...Do you want me to post a reminder on the CM Facebook page :?:

A few years ago when we were in the same position, I put a post on uphill racers and we got a couple of takers.
