I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few people for their help in making the Wakes Colne meeting a fantastic weekend.
Firstly the Halstead club and their committee, without them we wouldn’t be able to run at this track which has become the highlight of our season. Special thanks goes to Ben Howlett, Keith Weaver, Mark Mithchell, Andy Mayers and Brendon and Joe for their track preparation. We are extremely grateful for their support.
Secondly the many people who helped put the meeting together and lent a hand over the two days in some form or another. Gareth Robertson back for his first meeting of the year with his son, having just become a father again only days previously, for providing the watering system via fire hoses this worked brilliantly alongside the water bowsers. Apologies to those riders that may have got wet whilst the track was being watered during races. The committee (Dan, Ben, Rob, Richard, Rachel, Carline, Alan, Gemma)as always worked very hard all weekend in all manner of jobs, making sure everything ran smoothly. Emma Peck and Sarah Gull who assisted anyone who called them and Donna Earley who has done a sterling job of selling raffle tickets this season and with the money she has made for the club being used to provide the Hog roast and BBQ. Thanks must go to Alan Peck and Mr Sayer for taking over cooking the burgers and sausages whilst Jean and Gemma were occupied with the Hog and Darren Bennett for providing the Spit roast and grill. Nick Jenner for the bouncy castle, to the photographers, John Waghorne, Jonty Dixon ,Ian Bannister and Jason Kirby for his fantastic videos, I’m sure you’ve all seen their work on FaceBook.
The amount of people who came forward to help with the Marshalling was much appreciated as it is becoming harder and harder to rely on track marshals these days, thank you to those people and the Eastern Centre Marshal club for their support. A special thanks goes to the lapscorers who did a grand job especially when everyone forgot to clean their front plates from practice!! Toby Halfpenny and his team have been with us for a number of meetings now taking over the start on a regular basis and this is working well. Well done Toby and team.

Thank you to all the members that attended the EGM last night and to all those that sent in email or postal votes.
As a result of the EGM last night all three proposals were carried.
Email and postal votes will in the future be accepted as a form of voting and this will be added to our constitution.
Wakes Colne on the 10th/11th August is reinstated to being both Club Championship days.
The Qualification for the Club Championship will remain the same, from 36 races it will be 24 races to Qualify and 29 races to count, thereby dropping your worst 7 races from the 12 Rounds of the Summer Championship.
The club will move from the BSMA to Offroad Motorsport UK at a date to be confirmed. This will not affect the members at all this year.
This years Auto Challenge will take place over 4 rounds with 9 of the 10 races to count. Rd 1
Chatteris 17th March. Rd 2 Culham 5th May. Rd 3
Pineham 2nd June and the final round 21st July Mildenhall. Lots of prizes and trophies for all riders who qualify. The presentation will be at the Chatteris meeting on the 15th September. For anymore info or to help sponsor this challenge call Gemma on 07851408313
In view of the last race meting held at Chatteris on the 17th March the committee have met and discussed all the options available.
It has been decided that the fairest option is to change the Club Championship from being able to drop two rounds to now dropping your worst seven individual races over the year. This means that from thirty six races over the twelve race meetings you will now need twenty four races to qualify and twenty nine races to count thereby dropping your worst seven.
As the Auto challenge is already run under this system it will now mean for them that from ten races it will now be nine to count.
We would like to remind people to please be courteous and considerate to others and turn generators off by 11.00pm and if you are going to party outside to keep the noise down in consideration of the younger children which are asleep.
Can I also remind you to clear the rubbish up from around your campers, skips are provided so there is no need to just drivie off and leave it!
