Round 10 - Leukaemia Busters - Matterley Basin - Sunday 26th July
Well the final round at Matterley was a damp squib.
Weather was the biggest problem. The club has to commit to the event on Thursday night and no later, so with heavy rain forecast for Friday that was great news to water the track. Saturday was fine and the forecast for Sunday was for rain late in the afternoon. So it got the go ahead, then the weather forecast changed. First thing Sunday when the first group when out for practice the track looked spot on. Then the heavens opened and we all know what happened next. We had no option really but to cancel the meeting at lunchtime. It was ticking all the boxes, track was getting unridable, we also have to be aware this is the home of the British GP and to continue racing would have doubled the damage, we have to also have to think of our medical team if they could deal with any accident in those conditions, take into account all the officials and marshals who would have to brave the elements, the weather forecast at the time, for continuing rain for the next four hours. Would the lap scorers get any sort of a results with numbers covered in mud. So it was a fairly easy decision to make, but not very pleasant for all those involved.
On the plus side.
Most people enjoyed the weekend for what it was, everything ran as smoothly as it could. No one saw the medical boys. Everyone turn up. Stumpy was in fine form along with Reece’s and Rodders. Rubbish was pretty good in the pit area. Everything sold in the auction. A lot of beer was sold on Saturday. Bingo proved popular again. Although weather spoilt the day we made the best of it.
Many thanks to all involved, from people who donated stuff and those who just helped run the event. Many many thanks.
So what happens next.
I will be planning to hold the AGM shortly in a couple of weeks time, so we can sort out the awards evening for all our various championships. Plus further plans for the club. When I get it sorted I will email you shortly.
