Just looked on UHR and someone has booked the 20/3/19!

Not sure how they have booked it so cheaply though?
I have PM'd him and will leave it 24hrs before posting.

OK Guys we have a problem. The cost of the day is £800. Take up to date gives us £579.
I have had no response from UHR and limited from CMSCC. (Thanks for your support Nick)
I am happy to as the committee if they are willing to subsidise the event but not to the tune of over £200.
So we could.
  • Cancel
  • Increase the cost per car/session
  • Charge for second drivers
  • Anything else?
Comments please?

I would be happy to pay an extra £20.

If each full day driver gave £20 and half day drivers £10 gets us £11? Short of over the line.

Still cheaper than a track day...... which could be an idea for 2020 block booking on a track day?

If UHR have got the 20th for £700 is it worth going back to SDCC first, they may prefer a discount to a cancellation?

I'd happily pay a bit more so that the day can go ahead.

Ditto - I wonder if there’s a reason for their variable pricing?

as stayed earlier if I can be there I will. The car is physically with the exhaust man so it’s not like I can carry on working on it in the mean time.


Is we sideways yet...

I have spoken to David and he has agreed to charge £80 for a full day and £45 for a half day so I think we are good to go! He will also try to find some extra cars for us.
If you could transfer the extra that would be great or I will take the uplift on the day in cash. (Only the uplift please.)
