BRCA Mid West Regional 4WD round 4: Hinckley Model Car Club

Laura Yardy

10th July 2016

 

For round 4 of the 4WD series we returned to Hinckley Model Car Club. The track surface is grass, and due to the grip levels multiple tyre options were available.

 

The day started dry, and although the rain clouds looked threatening we managed to finish the meeting before the rain came in.

Some community announcements

 

As some of you may know Tony and Kay lost their dog Lilly suddenly earlier in the year. She had suffered heart failure. Kay is running the Portsmouth 10 mile in aid of the charity Cavalier Matters, in honor of Lilly.

 

Kay will be collecting donations at future events, and has a just giving page if youd prefer to donate that way.

Andy Reeves is also raising money for charity. In August he will be cycling 300 miles from London to Paris in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

 

This is a cause close to Andy and his family, as his mother-in-law received treatment at the centre. Any donation you can give will go a long way to a future without cancer.
