Thruxton 50th Anniversary

Post by Blade » Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:12 am

Hi all. Its Thruxton's 50th Anniversary thus year and they're holding a meeting on the 2nd and 3rd of June. I'll be going and I've spoken to the organiser who is a personal friend and he's interested in Davrians going along as a club. Especially ones that have raced there. I'll be taking mine. Would be good to get a healthy number to attend. Who's up for it?

Hope all is well with you.

Sounds like a great idea.
Is there going to be an opportunity to race ?
I’m sure Myles and I would be up for it, and we ought to be able to tempt a few more out too...
Any idea what is on the race programme?

Hi Iain. I haven't got the full programme yet but will post it as soon as it's confirmed. As for bribing you with a bit of track time to get u there, how's about a beer and a BBQ instead?

Nice one. The numbers are growing. I'm really hoping to get as many models as posible. From mk1 all the way through to mk8 (Dragon).
