Apart from the Grand Prix, Liz and I are not great followers of motorsport. A few years ago our son recommended Rockingham Raceway - we went along. Then they had "Days of Thunder" which included pickuptruck racing around the oval track. Things have changed but on 13 July there is another great day out- BRSCC including the pickups - if you haven't seen this it really is something to see them 1/2" apart at 160 mph.

It really is a good day - cheap to get in. Family friendly - lots of stuff for kids to do. There are events between races (they make sure that there is never a dull moment) - two years ago there was even a Spitfire flying display between races. You can walk around the whole site, visit the pits and sit wherever you want in the Grandstands. The full details are not available yet but the link is:-

http://www.rockingham.co.uk/events/eventdetails.asp?id=223

This is a good opportunity for us all to get together for a really good day out - RSVP and I will arrange parking and, if there are enough of us, negotiate a lower rate.

RSVP now.

Paul
