GWRA Breakdowns

Postby Drift on Mon Apr 21, 2008 11:22 pm

An idea, if anyone breaks down on the way to the event within a reasonable distance I reckon we should go all out to rescue them , get them to the event and do our best to get them running again for the event and the journey home.

We could on the Saturday hold a niggle works shop, from showing peeps how to change oil to more complex things like how to pay for fuel :lol: :lol: sorry :oops:

But you get my jist, :wink: we could all help solve each others niggles on our cars.

So the short and tall is bring a few tools and any parts that your not confident fixing, Im sure plenty of folk will help or advise, weather permitting of course.

But remember its a field not a garage :lol:

Any thought on this guys?

If peeps do break down, does it still count if they get towed in the convoy :?: :lol:
