just a quick heads up on steve brown and his very good racing 924 that he brought along to the national.

steve is racing this coming sunday and monday,29th/30th aug at rockingham raceway in corby,northants. £15 to get in on the day,and rockingham is the only race track in this country that guarantees you a seat,with great facilities,access,parking and you can see all the track.
http://www.rockingham.co.uk/events/even ... asp?id=419

loads of races during each day,with formula 3 single seaters,mini's,tvr's,mx-5's and saloon cars.
steve is currently 4th in the 924 championship and i shall be going to annoy him in the paddock on sunday

cheers
karl

Cheers Karl.

I'll be supporting him at Brands. I've pledged to follow his progress in the newsletter and I've asked Steve to give us regular reports from his perspective. He's a great fella, very interesting to hear about the car and the series and a nicely built car. We'd be daft not to get behind him :lol:

I'm more than happy to support at Oulton Park or Anglesey. How do I find out where and when he will be appearing?

It's the BRSCC Porsche Championship.

See here for events http://www.brscc.co.uk/race-meetings.html

You need to click on the events to see if 924s are running that weekend. Saying that Steve said he's at Brands on Sept 12th and it's not listed so I'll get a definitive race calendar from him asap :razz:
(I noticed if you click on the pdf for 2010 race entry it does give a list of dates and venues)

Hello Chaps

Had a great time on Sunday thank you for the warm welcome, and chuffed that there is so much interest in racing 924's

Maybe even inspired some of you to have a go yourself!

Look Forward to seeing you at the races. only 4 days until the rockingham so I need to get my race head on, (involves watching hours of in car footage!) also appologies in advance if I seem a little distant before the race even now I get ridiculousley nervouse!

Steve
