Firstly can I congratulate the Pickering crew on behalf of the BRCA 2016 LSOR section for making us feel welcome and ensuring that the track was in top condition ahead of our arrival.
Despite the pre event weather forecasts for the area around Pickering having bad storms and heavy rain the actual race day was run under glorious blue skies for the fourth year running with 47 racers making the trip to Sunny Yorkshire.
Those of us who arrived early experienced the heavy rain on Friday afternoon and late into the evening whilst Saturday practice was hit by a short sharp shower mid-afternoon.
The section wishes to congratulate those drivers who with two rounds to go have achieved scores to secure their places in their respective championships.
4 Wheel Drive National Championship Winner :- Ian Oddie
4 Wheel Drive National Championship Runner up :- Jack Keatley
2 Wheel Drive National Championship Winner :- Karl Norris
Whilst all this is good news I am afraid to say that Neil has contacted me following the meeting to say how disappointed he is that despite requesting that all rubbish should be taken home, 12 bags were hidden on the fire under a couple of pallets. For those who came with Co-op and Aldi carrier bags and Bulmer’s Neil and Robin have your goods if you wish to collect them!
I am disappointed that a few racers have decided to ignore the hosts request and makes the hosts job twice as hard now since in Neil’s case the area used to race needs to be returned to perfect grazing conditions before the sheep return to the field and those who left late would have seen Neil on his hands and knees ensuring no body clips were in the grass!
We have two rounds to go in the 2016 series so please if you are attending either round and camping please take home your rubbish to help both the Ings and Nene teams out.
