The Chequered Flag ft. TrackAddict at Curborough Sprint Course

Here it is, the write up (in the pdf. down below) and a couple of photos from the event we’ve been excited about and planning since June! 

The Chequered Flag and TrackAddict getting together at Curborough Sprint Course for what was lining up to be, a pretty awesome way to spend a Monday. 

We did had a slight “technical” hitch which meant no laptimes where recorded once the guys really got to know the circuit. we had the times from the first couple of laps, but this period is all about getting to know the circuit so it isn’t much point delving into them too deeply. However we will come back stronger for the next event with a new method and revised timing gear. 

It was great to meet everyone on this event, and hopefully we’ll see you again soon. 

Thanks,
​Mitch. 

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.

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)
