In Topic: Coventry planning application

Yesterday, 11:38 PM

Very cleverly written by Framptons - click on the documents on line link, then view plans and documents near the bottom to access the links, then click on the file, its near the bottom letter to RBC10.... dated 18th October. Its quite an interesting read and just shows how these things are put forward.


Interesting twist on things by Framptons! Some of the sites they mention wouldn't entertain BriSCA F1 in a million years. A few factual discrepancies with their history lesson re Coventry Stadium too, but interesting as you say, to see how these things are put together.

Loved it. Great racing all night across all three formulae. The F1 final was worth the admission on it's own. 390 v 84 was immense. Great use of 21 by 390 to fence 84!!
The return of Lundy was the icing on the cake for me, and well done to Trackstar in promoting it well. A good crowd too, apparently twice the usual amount of advance tickets were sold prior to the meeting. The Lundy factor!!
Smithy v Tom continued in the GN and all of a sudden the shoot out has gone back into the melting pot after FWJ taking heat and final.
The tooz saw some huge grids and some strange parking by Colin Gregg (in a Rob Mitchell car!) and Henry King!
Minis as brutal as ever. All in all, it was a good night to be a stock car fan.
And an even better one to be a Lundy fan!

You didn't expect anything else did you?!

Sad news. Condolences to those Dave leaves behind. RIP 318


In Topic: are less fans going to watch the racing this season? [2018]

17 October 2018 - 10:22 PM

This time last season, I'd done 38 stock car meetings. So far this, I've done 23. I think a number of factors are behind this, chief amongst which, I just can't be bothered with the driving as much any more. Haven't  bothered with BV, Sheffield or Stoke this year as I just can't be bothered with the journeys for average meetings that take hours on end to complete. Most of my racing has been at Northampton, KL and Skeg due to locality. Coventry is a massive miss, I don't care what anyone says, and a few of the sports top end drivers have been missing for various reasons, so the spark just seems to have gone a little bit..........but Lundy is back on Saturday, so everything is right with the world! :dancehappy:

 

Edit - I also contribute to the dotd thread whenever I go racing, but have noticed that even these threads are getting fewer and fewer posts. Its a shame as I enjoy reading other fans' perspectives of the same meetings that I have attended, and of course the views from the meetings that I haven't, but unfortunately, the last few meetings struggle to raise enough interest for this even. Pity.

Giant suddenly became 'unwell' at work today and has had to take some time off!


Have heard that Giant has arrived at the stadum and is comfortable with his 'camp' outside the gates.


Lol!
