Feel free to post chat about Kidderminster National 2011 in here!

Website:
http://www.brca-midwest.co.uk/

VENUE LOCATION
. At the Oldington Leisure Field, Stourport Road, South of Kidderminster on the A451. Entrance to the track is on the West side of the dual-carriageway. Visitors approaching from the North, will have to proceed past the track, to the end of the dual-carriageway (approx. 1/3 mile) and double back towards Kidderminster.

For those with Sat.Nav. the map reference is :- SO 817736 (venue does not have a post code).
The entrance to the venue is directly off a dual-carriageway with fast moving cars. Under no circumstance can any vehicle be parked on the side of this road, or in the gateway entrance. The venue is at the end of a sports’ field which is used as a golf driving range. The driving range ground is strictly out of bounds.

I am really looking forward to seeing the national series return to what is without doubt my favourite track in the country. Sadly I will be too busy trying to make it a fantastic day for the rest of you to watch much racing

Dear Racers,

Kidderminster Model Car Club will be opening its gates to all those who wish to get some track time ahead of their national in June. With some intensive track maintenance scheduled over the next couple of months, this will be your last chance to use the track before it is closed until the national itself.

The track will be open on Saturday April 23rd from 10.00am until approximately 4.30pm, with the invitation exclusively open to any drivers who are booked in for the national event. Attendees are required to pay a small fee on the day of £5 per driver, a club official will be present to take payment.

Ahead of the day, if you wish to attend, please register by contacting Tony Meredith, his email address can be found on the BRCA Mid West website - http://www.brca-midwest.co.uk/contact.html under Kidderminster. Deadline for registering attendance is Thursday, April 21st.

Thanks.
KMCC

If you look in your national entry pack, you had to apply for one of ten caravan places.
I phoned up on the evening the pack arrived (the day after they were sent out), and all places had gone. I am first reserve

Its understandable, due to limited space.
Its disappointing, as myself, wife and my two daughters were to leave Newcastle the week before, holiday in the Peak district for a week, then move onto Kiddy to finish the holiday. But without a pitch, it looks like I'll have to cancel the week away aswell.

Fingers crossed someone with a caravan decides to cancel.

Chris, there is a camp / caravan site not far from the track but the name escapes me ... I'm sure a quick google will find it and save the day

Exclamation Pit Area

Dear All,

We have devised a layout for the pit area at the national this weekend. We are going to mark it out as clearly as possible, but our intention is to keep tent and vehicles seperate.

We request that you park your cars around the permimeter of the field, and in the centre will be the roped off tent area - we will not allow cars into this area however you will be allowed to off load close to tents whilst volume allows.

Look forward to seeing you all this weekend.
KMCC

Although it does make it a little more difficult for people like me who pit out of / charge off their cars it is the most efficient way to use the space available at both Kidderminster and Stotfold.

Us RC racers are a messy bunch and would quite happily expand to cover the surface area of Heathrow if allowed to do so

Going to be a top weekend for you all, trust me

Yeah you can pit from your vehicle if you wish, wherever you park you shouldn't be all that far from the track.
