Were hoping to bring out little EV meet along in the afternoon.
John Crayton told me that he thought we would be allowed on the track after the event (he thought 5pm)..is this right?

Glad you can make it Kelvin, there will be KMX's galore for you to try out:)

Excellent, John Lily called too and said he thought there would be a pace car that would limit speed to 50mph...I'll stick a few more cells in one of them to make sure it can keep up :twisted:
Need a very brave soul to do 50 on a KMX mind, who will be the crash test dummy?

Looks like its going to be a good one, I have to say that last year was really good and VERY interesting to see what the kids have acheived. There where some mighty impressive machines.

Provided I can finish the 36v. conversion on the MkI "Junkyard Dog" EAPC in time, I would love to run that round Goodwood. I will go to Ferndown near Bournemouth on Sat.18th, so I can get to Goodwood well before midday on Sunday. I will email Terry Harding right now. All the best, from Ed.

Enjoyed the Greenpower racing very much (again), an event filled afternoon. I have established a good vantage point in the stand above the end of the pit lane where I can hear the marshals shouting at the kids, it's great.
