Charity Track Day - Rockingham 19th March 2017

Hi All,

So I'm pleased to announce I have been working closely with Rockingham to arrange a charity track day with the money being donated to the Myton Hospice. The Myton Hospice is where our dear friend and track addict Dave Howl spent his last week, the care they gave him was outstanding, and as a club I thought this would be an amazing opportunity for us to do something that Dave loved and a get together in the early stages of the year

So here is how things will work:

Sunday 19th March at Rockingham Speedway, Mitchell Road, Corby, Northamptonshire, NN17 5AF

Full Track Session - £185 to be purchased direct from Rockingham using the following link:

https://store.rockingham.co.uk/ProductD ... =170319TTO

£20 of every full track session purchased will go to the Myton Hospices - please can you let me know if you have purchased a full track session

Taster Session - £40 per 20 minute session to be purchased on the day in cash. There are two taster sessions one at 12.30pm and one at 12.50pm with a maximum of 30 cars on each session. I need to compile a list of those wanting to take part as Rockingham have removed these sessions from their website for purchase to ensure that we get full availability of this.

100% of every taster session purchased will go to the Myton Hospices

For anyone who would just like to attend, then entrance is FOC. There will be several collection tins and collection buckets and all donations are extremely welcome with 100% going to the Myton Hospices.

I'm really excited about this, and I hope that we can sell every taster session, I am also talking to Rockingham about a parade lap, but this will purely be down to timing as they have already arranged a second taster session to allow for 60 cars.

I hope as many of you can join us either on track or just to be there for a great day!

This is not just open to the TTOC, I have invited the AiTP, AOC, TTF and talking to more so spread the word!

Full Track

Taster Session 1 12.30pm

Taster Session 2 12.50pm

Thanks

Jess, Rockingham & The Myton Hospices

Well, what a day!

Thank you to everyone in attendance, you all made it such a good day! Thank you especially to Rockingham Speedway for being so accommodating, thank you to Calvin and Ann for being photographer and videographer extraordinaires and quickly getting from one side of the track to the other, and lastly Richard and Jenny for leading the final parade lap, certainly one for the memory books!

Pictures and video will be available soon! If you would like to purchase high res pictures please contact Ann with the ones that you would like, cost is £5 donation using the link below per image.

Myton Hospice have confirmed that £577.62 was raised on the day, and we are currently at £525 on JustGiving.
If you were unable to make it, but would still like to donate, please follow the following link to the JustGiving page, all donations welcome not matter how big or small, it truly is a fantastic cause!
