Gavin Hinsley shake on the deal
Monday night 30 September saw the final sign-off
on the marketing contract between the Club and Concept Sports Promotions
( Ian Foster ) It was pleasing for the Working Party , that had
taken over the settlement negotiations after the walkout by the
majority of the Executive Committee, to reach a satisfactory conclusion
to the process within the timeframe set earlier. Ian Foster is now
working hard on Sponsors, Signage and planning advertising in readiness
for opening night.
The new catering contract was also finalised with Funtime Foods
and work on the new kitchen below the clubrooms has started.
Several new positions have been filled in the Committee.
Bellette has been appointed Chief Scrutineer for the season and
the Clerk of the Course is Leon McCord.
The new track surface has been laid and dug into the ground by the
team from Porter Hire who spent all of the weekend with their roadworking
machinery on the track. With the extensive digging and turning,
grading and rolling that went on we can expect a top racing surface
almost from opening night in a months time. We are very grateful
for their help and support in achieving this. A large turnout of
drivers over the weekend helping to get the grounds and equipment
ready was another pleasing turnaround of events. It is great to
see drivers and helpers pitching in together again.
The practice dates have now had to be changed as the new fittings
for the pit gates have not been completed, likewise the entry and
exit chutes will not have had their new concrete finished. Practice

The next drivers meeting is on Wednesday 9th of October at 7.30pm
where the committee will give everyone a full update on the club
