    I went to the meeting and left confused, I did a quick count and there was prob 200 people there who could have chipped (not there and then) £200 in which would be a large amount, I think people want this track back but dont want to commit....just my view and not neccessarily correct....
    Farmers Son turned up and did a great job, honest, understanding, and actually wants us back there.

    I was there as well, and chipped in at the end ££, I thought the land owner Edward came over really well, he cleared up some points regarding the history and answered any questions with great detail, I hope it comes off. I see it as something along the lines of what North Weald was, there will never be any permanent structures and everything must be returned to as it was for Monday morning.

    I had to leave before the end as I was with someone else who was on a time frame, but the question about moving the banking to Edward...."you are a Farmer why cant you do it with your equipment" made me shudder.
    I'm not a drag racer, there is just not enough seat time for me that's why I started doing trackdays but I do hope it works out OK as I would like to put my Busa down the strip one more time and relive the 80s/90s ...the last time I rode a bike there.

    I put a bullseye in the last time they put the hat round, hopefully they'll hit the target this time.
    Ps pun intended

    Total is up to £65K now so another £35K to go, between 500 people that's about £70 each which doesn't sound a lot to keep Drag Racing alive in the North of England. My donation of £250 is not for my purposes but to keep the track open a legacy if you like for others to keep racing alive and our type of lifestyle events going.

    Please note its a new promoter, the land owner is fully behind racing returning, but if unsuccessful all electronic donations will be refunded, so you've got nothing to lose really!
    Also if racing returns and any money made from the events will go back into the track and facilities, which is great news.

    I cant help thinking that this really is the last chance and remember once its gone its Gone!
    If you can help in any small way now really is the time.
    Cheers
    Tc

    I forgot to mention there are tee shirts for sale, stickers and mugs but also there is some cool auctions taking place on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/2099354770292042/

    Andy Fadster is offering a ride in Twister, Mark Todd is offering to take some lucky sole out on the Street Eliminator cruise, Big Jobs donating a cool back end of a pop van for a man cave etc etc plus loads of other stuff.
    please check it out and give in anyway you can
    Cheers
