As usual we raised the most, over £1700.
A big thankyou to all those who drove, helped out, and paid a fiver for a lap.
I have a bit of a headache now but it has been a brilliant day all in all.
The best thing I have done with the club all year.

Firstly, wow............. £1700 is an amazing result, i know there will be some merchandise sales in there aswell but can see that being a small percentage. At a fiver a lap, thats some laps. Would love to know the breakdown if poss.

Secondly, Dave. Take a bow :bowdown1: . The amount of effort you must of put into this from start to finish must of been immense. Well done sir, truly great event.

Hello,

As always Asda Charity day is probably one of the BEST events any car owner can attend, not just the activities, but the reasons for being there. More activities this yr than when I first attended many moons ago. Awesome air display as well.... You really SHOULD be there and the day was sunny/warm...hands up who has a wind burnt face? arggghhh!! :D

Dave - hats off to you hon...it isn't an easy task to organise...but you did and now time to put up your feet!!

As always great to meet NEW and OLD car club members, always a blast!!

Giles/Suzy/Moley/Robbie - :thumbsup: Most excellent drive back *cough* ;);)

Put me down for next year!!

Just back having dropped of the unit. Wait til you see it finished!!!

I can't thank everyone enough for attending and helping us raise even more money than ever before! Well done to everyone. To the ladies who ran the gate, the pit marshalls, the paddock organisers, the people who helped put up and take down the shelters, the merchandise stall, camera people and everyone else who did something to help. But mostly to the drivers who ran the cars all day and raised a lot of money! Great to see so many new GTRs on track and not one fell foul of any temperature or brake problems, despite the hot weather and the constatnt stop-start of the pit. Well done. But for me the best bit had to be the new GTR members meeting up with the stalwart Skyline brigade. This bodes well for the future of the Club and FANTASTIC to see.

Thank you thank you thank you
:)

£1735 was the final result. That's 347 laps between us, fellas.

Not bad for a days work, eh?!


Big, big thanks to Dave. Fantastic work Mr Wilkins. :bowdown1:

Brill to see the usual crowd again and to put some faces to a bunch of 35 owners who deffo made us some money. :clap: "I wanna go in the new one". lol

Thanks to Eric for the pax laps. I had another 35 lap too, but forgot who it was with - sorry. :nervous:

You can't deny the seamless delivery of those 35s. Well impressed. They do need a manual box though and they're still uglier than Robbie 733 - and he's got a face like a catcher's mitt. :D

I had a niggling misfire on full boost, so had to make do with half boost all day. Still, scared some punters and didn't get passed once.

Sam, you're a lunatic!!!

Great drive home too! ;)

Well a great trip/day, as always. I think we did the club proud and once again raised the most for the charity :)

Nice to meet up with the usual rabble but also nice to meet some of the new R35 guys and see old/new faces mingling and getting along well.

Thanks Shane & Andy for my laps, both savage cars with awesome drivers.

Thanks also to SNEL (spelling?) for my first track ride in an R35, was very impressed with the performance...can only imagine what these things will be like in a year or two once the tuning scene really kicks off !

Still not convinced with the exterior looks but from a get-up-and-go and cornering perspective, they're fantastic cars.

Sorry to Hodgie & Emil that we couldn't go full beans in the Drag R but hope it gave you a bit of a taster...I want a re-run Andy once I get it fixed :chuckle:

Hope you get your car sorted out soon Ian (IMS).

For once, Suzy & I didn't even take a single picture, was too busy on the gate...all I have is one video lap with a duff 2nd gear. Poor girl didn't get a lunch break until 4pm and is zonked out on the sofa now, bless.

I'm still cringing about that video interview you insisted on Malc, I felt like a right tit !

P.S. Yeah great drive home you 3 :smokin:

What a brilliant day!

I feel sure that my R35 ran better than ever on the drive back to Wales, It almost felt as if it had needed the leg stretching that it most definitely got, and purred home! I have to say I am now even more hugely impressed with it - simply flying past 2 Lamborghini's on Bruntingthorpe runway is a memory which will certainly last!

Equally, I was hugely impressed at all the R32s, R33s and R34s there, and their drivers! What a great bunch of people, with everyone helping out. Thanks so much to Dave and all the others for taking so much trouble to make sure we were number 1 not just on money raised but on true club values.

In the words of Arnie - "I'll be back!"

What a great day.........once again we raised a huge amount on the day. Stunning effort.

A big thank you to the helpers on the gate, in the pits and the holding areas, without you all, we can't run an event like this successfully.

Dave, your a star mate, well done.

All I can say is to repeat what John said.

Thank you all very much, old and new.:D:clap::D

Andy.
