AEMC MSUK Seminar - Sunday 8th March

Club Officials and Events on Sunday 8th March.
 
The Association of Eastern Motor Clubs in association with Motorsport UK is running a seminar on the 8th March at The Holiday Inn at Impington near Cambridge.
 
The seminar is primarily aimed at anyone involved  in running (or thinking of running) events including Club Stewards, Secretaries of the Meeting, Unlicensed Clerks, Competition Secretaries, etc. etc.
 
Representatives from all disciplines are very welcome  the content being applicable generally. Its also a great opportunity to pick up ideas from other events.  Newcomers are especially welcome as the seminars provide a fantastic opportunity to develop and share knowledge and experience with other Club Officials and Event Organisers in the region.
 
The day will be mainly workshop based, specifically aimed at exchanging views and information to support the running of successful events. The seminar will consist of  various elements including event administration, from writing Supplementary Regulations and carrying out promotion prior to the event, through to incident handling and reporting during the event itself. A review of the new permit and licence arrangements will also be covered
 
The session will start at 10.00 am and finish at around 16.15. Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
 
We are very grateful to Motorsport UK who have agreed to provide a mileage allowance for delegates as follows.
The allowance will be payable at a rate of 38p per mile for a maximum of 100 miles each way. Car sharing is encouraged and, if two or more people are sharing a car, the maximum mileage allowance is extended to a total of 200 miles each way, including the extra mileage incurred in collecting any fellow attendees as passengers. Details on how to claim mileage expenses will be provided following the day’s training. Motorsport UK is unable to pay any accommodation costs.
 
In order to manage the event it will be necessary for attendees to pre-register.  We think it would be really beneficial for club members who help out with events to attend this seminar.  If you would like to attend please use the link below to register.
 

AMSC Autosolo Challenge 2019 - Round 3

Please note that there was a minor error in the class result overview table that was published yesterday.  David Curtis was missing from Class B, he came 7th in class - sorry David!

Thanks to the organisers, marshals and of course competitors today, a well run smooth event.  Close competition all the way through in most classes with the FTD being decided by just a few seconds (1 pylon's worth?).

Event results are linked below:

South Suffolk Classic - 12th May 2019

The 11th South Suffolk Classic run is taking place on Sunday 12th May.  Full details of the event, including route details, regulations, entry forms and online entry are available from the event website www.southsuffolkclassic.co.uk.  

It’s just 4 weeks away and things have developed nicely here is an update please spread the word.

Woodbridge Tide MillWoodbridge Riverside Trust will be opening their Longshed boat workshop adjacent to the start extra early on the morning so you can view the replica long boat, Sae Wylfing and have a look round whilst waiting for the start. Complimentary tea or coffee will be available at the start from the Coffeelink, outlet pastries and bacon butties will also be available.

Bentwaters Park is up and running – Bill Kemball has roped in this wife and daughter for the day to ensure the museum exhibits and tour is viewed at their very best – there is also the chance of one of the stationary engines being up in ‘steam’.  Bentwaters, besides having a WW2 history, remained as a USAF base until relatively recently and was a prominent Cold War Nuclear resource.

Bentwaters Park logoUpon release by the MoD it was purchased by Bill Kemball and has developed into several areas including agriculture, energy production, storage and other industrial uses. Part of our visit will be a guided coach tour around the various facilities which will last about an hour. Nick and I have had the tour and it is completely fascinating.

The Kemball family are also very keen on equipment and history and there are three 'museums' contained in some of the original base buildings.  Bill Kemball has a collection of Agricultural machinery pre-1960 which is of national if not international significance, not normally open to the public. The content is jaw-dropping.

Mrs Kemball has a unique collection of ladies dresses from each decade from the 1900's to the 1960's including many spectacular bridal gowns, which impressed me, even as a devout male who likes things made of metal!

They are also working on a new exhibition of WW2 life and another relating to the Holocaust.

You will gather that we thought it sensible to shorten the road mileage this year in order that you get a better chance to take in everything Bentwaters and the Kemball family have to show you. This will be the best SSC yet.

A portion of your entry fee is being donated to two local charities East Anglian Air Ambulance and Wantisden Church Roof. The good news is that Wantisden Church now has the funds for the new roof work so Bentwaters Park have changed their nominated charity to Ipswich Hospital Blossom Appeal (Breast Cancer).
