Our apologies to those signed up for this weekend’s club events 24th and 25th September. Both the SSCC Autotest and the club track day have been cancelled due to lack of entries. Although a few more entries have come in, we still don’t have enough people to safely marshal the events. But the season isn’t over yet – we have the Trials coming up so keep your eye on the social.
After what feels like a never-ending and dreary winter we are looking forward to getting some events back here at Forrestburn.
