31st October Marks Tey Meeting cancelled

The Pre65 Club Committee have very reluctantly had to take the desision to cancel the scramble on 31st October. 

Urgent track repair is needed and this has to be done before winter sets in to allow nature to lend a helping hand.  We have not been allowed on the site for some weeks while numerous trenches were dug prior to the A12 widening scheme going ahead.  Some restoration of the track surface has been completed by the company responsible but it will take weeks before we can tell how successful that has been.   However, the whole track surface is in need more work to mitigate the wear and tear which has made it extreamly bumpy in places and was responsible for the 'dust storm' at the meeting on 30th May.  

We will post more news when available.

We were blessed with good fortune throughout the preparation and running of last weekends meeting. Fortunate in that we had an enthusiastic work party assemble on Saturday who threw themselves at erecting the track and also a passionate chairman. He journeyed all the way home to collect his tractor and bowser and then spent the evening and early morning damping down the bone hard ground. Boy didn’t it make conditions far more enjoyable for competitors and spectators alike. Even Di came out of retirement to welcome a host of visitors keen to witness proceedings.

Dave Savill had organised nine marshals for us prior to the occasion so, come nine thirty the Chief Marshal was giving out his instructions and Practise was underway around 9.45.

Racing commenced with all classes keenly contested throughout the first session. The John Waylett trophy went to Ray Wood aboard his Challenger with Steve Billot second and a young upstart by the name of Pete Griffiths third. Most fitting as, like the patron of the Trophy who owned one, he was aboard a Maico.

Website Registrations

There are still some folk out there who have reregistered here on the Pre-65 Club website but for some reason haven't yet logged in.

This is probably due to the activation email sent to you getting lost somewhere  /  sent to spam folder (dig it out and white list it) / or the email address entered was incorrect - and for anyone with an AOL email address it would never have gotten to you due to an AOL quirk.

I have manually activated the following list of folk so anyone spotting themselves please try logging in with the details you entered when registering.

Mandatory Fire Extinguishers

To comply with the AMCA rulebook every rider must have a 2kg fire extinguisher in their vehicle. 

AMCA stewards will be performing random checks throughout the year so please ensure you have an extinguisher at every meeting.  Also consider displaying it in a prominent position to help the stewards and make it easy to find in an emergancy. 

Thank you from the Gt. Ormond St Hospital Charity
