Hi everyone,

Long time no see, although hopefully I should (fingers crossed) be seeing everyone in 10 DAYS TIME!
(Thanks Ian (bobbinsjob) for all the reminders, it seems like all the hard work in the organising is going to pay off :D )

Is there much of a plan on the Sunday morning?
Will the event marshals direct everyone as they arrive or is there a planned meeting point before heading to the track?
(I've only ever been on the in-field at Rockingham which requires driver sign-on first thing in the morning)

Oh and anyone planning on scouring the car park just before the event for more Frontera owners?
as TV keeps telling me, "every little helps" ;-)

See you in a little over a week, nice and early in the morning :dance:

-Sheldon

we will all need to meet and park just inside the ticket gates between 9 and 10am - no later than 10am. Tania Baker from Rockingham will brief me which i will in turn brief everyone else. I have posted the sign-on form as an announcement in the GWR section which you all need to print out and complete and bring with you. (Dont worry if you forget as i will bring loads of blanks with me).

See you on Sunday

Just a quick line to say have a great time everyone. As Fronty owners for 10 years we'd have loved to be there. But as busy Childrens Party Magicians we simply cannot. Look forward to the photos and videos.

What are the chances of those who posess stocks of such things bringing FOG window stickers etc along so those of us who are too disorganised to have already done it can have our trucks suitably dressed for the occasion?

In case I forget, have a fantastic time everyone & hold the fronty flag high :wink: Even if I had my fronty, plans would have gone I look silly swearing up as Brandon has spent the last few days in hospital. His heart has been on the blink and has scared the hell out of us.The heart is ultimately a muscle and begins to get weaker as the condition progresses.
You guys will certainly be in our thoughts so have a load of fun 8)
