Anyone free this Sunday (5th) - Track action

Postby findlay » Thu Aug 02, 2007 12:46 pm

Its the SIDC (Scooby Impreza Drivers Club) day at the Grampian Transport museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire (where the club attended to Motorvation a couple of weeks ago). The benefot of this event is that you will be able to pay (a small fee) and get use of your car on the track. I'm going along to redeem myself from last year (span off into the middle of the circuit after hitting gravel on the exit of a corner :oops: ) and I believe the Doc is coming along too.

Any other takers? If its dry I'm ever hopeful that the Scooby boys can be shown a thing or two :? :P

It'll be on all day and I'd imagine gates will open 10am-ish

Will be in the Aberdeen area over the weekend, if I can get out of being dragged around the shops I will take a run out to Alford.
