Not this time

Whilst Club MSV emailed the day before (Saturday) to say that all efforts would be made to make sure the track day would go ahead, it was disappointing to see on our arrival that no attempts the day before had been made to clear the Track. I got up at 5.15am, picked up Josh Bell at 6am where we both travelled on icy roads and snowy lanes to get to the circuit. After 1.5hours (7:30am) we arrived to see that the clearing process had only just begun.

Signing on was going to start at 8:30am and the track time was due to commence from 10am. However at 9am, the drivers briefing an signing on had not even begun. After a few individuals rounded together in the arrival area, at 9:30am the acting circuit manager confirmed that the day was to be aborted.

Whilst the staff had also been through the same, it was silly to have wasted everyone's time so near to Christmas. Had the track been inspected late on Saturday afternoon, it would have been cancelled without the additional hassle involved.

I would like to thank Josh Bell for coming and keeping me company on the day and his mum, Terri, for making delicious sausage rolls for us to eat on the journey.
