Update: CAR-nival 21 latest

The Club has received the following update from Event Organiser, Barry Guess:

“It is with regret we advise that despite extensive efforts, we have been unable to secure any undertaking from the MoD authorities regarding full availability of the airfield at Abingdon, predominantly due to ‘delayed filming activities’ in certain areas of the venue.

Whilst certain other commercial activities will be taking place at the venue, these do not require the full use of all of the tarmac roads and as such can be accommodated within the current diary.

We must stress that whilst this has resulted in the cancellation of the potential Sprint and Autosolo events (as reduced daylight does not facilitate the required ‘change over’ activity), it is hoped that we will still be able to organise the stage rally on a date before Christmas.

To this end, we will retain the list of those who ‘registered an interest’ in the Mini CAR-nival and these people will be contacted in order to offer first refusal on the expected 100 places. Once this list has been exhausted then places will be offered to others who have pre-registered their interest.

Finally, on behalf of the hugely disappointed organising team, we thank you for your support and as they say… watch this space!

The CAR-nival Team”

Promo: FDMC at the British Motor Show, Farnborough, 19-22 Aug 21

C’ttee member Iain Eckett reports

“Farnborough District Motorsport Club have been invited by Motorsport UK to be at the British Motor Show on 19-22 August.

It’s kinda cool that FDMC have been asked to put on a bit of a show at such a prestigious event and will be doing some Autosolos with members from the club to help promote grass root motorsport.

So please come along and see FDMC (down by the Paul Swift Display team) and have a chat with some friendly members of the Club about joining an amazing club and grass root motorsport.

Some of the Juniors from the Club will be there so if your son/daughter is interested then they can chat to someone who’s having fun competing.

While I believe we are the best attraction, there are few other attractions that might tickle your fancy.

Please look for our FDMC Green Gazebos and while the club is there for the four days I hope to see some of you on the Sunday with my son Tom driving.”.

Event: Summer Social 21

Club Members are invited to our Summer Social 2021, at 7:30pm on Tuesday 20th July at the Mytchett Community Centre.

Our Summer Social this year combines three events in one:

  – A free BBQ (which always gets a raft of old members out of their armchairs) and just maybe some free drinks too.
 – Our Annual Awards Presentation, where we hand out the silverware to a bunch of worthy volunteers and winners.
 – An Alternative Vehicle Night, so come along in something unusual, it’s a great excuse for a run out.

What you need to do: please text Ken Martin on 07939 502106 with your name and, if you have such a thing, your partner’s name. If you have any special dietary restrictions please inform Ken but don’t make it too cumbersome for him. Ken needs good numbers so that the beer does not run out!

[Please note the date is subject to the freeing up of C-19 restrictions which will hopefully be announced on the 12th].
