Our Favourite Driving Roads From The Chequered Flag Team

As part of continued development with ‘The Chequered Flag’ website we are adding a new feature, our favourite driving roads bought to you by the members of the group. 

These roads will be handpicked by the team but can also be submitted by you! All you have to do is get in contact with us via the contact page, or on our social media platforms and let us know what your favourite road is and why. Over the next few weeks we will be gathering all the information and plotting an interactive map for all like minded petrol heads to use and enjoy.

The finished webpage full of the greatest driving roads will be posted in it’s own section on the website for easier viewing, link down below.

Curborough Sprint Event 21st August 2017

With great attendance from The Chequered Flag regular sprint goers at Curborough Sprint Course, 4 kit cars and 6 completely new people to our events, this one was going to be a special sprint event from the off.

This event would also be the first where we’d use our new lighting system to indicate to the drivers the track is clear and they can begin their lap. A separate right up will be issued out in the next week or so on this within the blog.

The usual post event write up is below, along with the lap times from the event.

If you are interested in attending an event either to take part or just spectate, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks,
​Mitch.

Featured Car Blog – Joe Wilde’s Fiesta ST MR200

Welcome to our first featured car blog relating to one of our members cars, Joe Wilde (who has been with The Chequered Flag from day 1) and his Ford Fiesta ST MR200.

Be prepared for a long read! So it’s well worth making a brew beforehand.

Thanks, Mitch.

The Chequered Flag, Curborough Sprint Event 7th August 2017

With our visit to Wales in July, The Chequered Flag group didn’t get chance to hold a sprint event at Curborough Sprint Course, so we made sure we where back on form for August.

We had great attendance again and a mix of drivers and cars. The day was predominantly held for the Midlands ST Owners Club (A Ford club based in the midlands). but with a few spare places on offer the day was opened up the to the rest of The Chequered Flag group on Facebook. 

The usual write up and photos are below (a special thanks to Rob Elliot and Dave Robinson for the photos)

Ford Fair 2017

BEING A FORD OWNER, IT’S HARD TO IGNORE THE ANNUAL SHOW, FORD FAIR.

THE LAST TIME I WENT WAS IN 2014, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT TIME I VISITED SILVESTONE AGAIN FOR THE SHOW.

THE SHOW SEEMED BIGGER THAN EVER (AND SO DID THE TRAFFIC JAMS!) BUT IT WAS STILL A GREAT DAY, AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A CATCH UP WITH SOME PEOPLE I HAVEN’T SEEN IN A WHILE.
