Good evening all, hope you all had a good weekend at the MAP Open.

Just a reminder to you all that this Sunday June 11th will be the final round of the CGTRO National Qualifiers. PLEASE NOTE the first two heats will be national qualifiers only. Anybody else who attends we will have two heats and finals AFTER the qualifiers.

We are also looking to have an adult Junior Special race. Please note this is not final so all depends of how the other races go.

I wish all you who are qualifying the very best of luck and all those that are just racing just racing a very good meeting. See you all at the weekend, Karl.

Thanks to everybody who came to the track today. It's starting to look good with only five weeksn until our first meeting.

Thanks again, Karl Bedford


Work Party

If any of you still fancy a breath of fresh air after the scunny shakedown has been postponed, then you can come to trent for a work party.

There are posts to paint, some armco to replace, marshal posts to paint, posts and fencing to strim around.

Also if anybody has some spare white paint for the posts and marshal posts it would be appreciated. Also if anybody has some green paint for the commentary and signing on units, it would be appreciated too.

Please bring with you paint and brushes, strimmers, spanners, hammers and let's get cracking.

Thanks, Karl Bedford

Change of Club Meeting

Due to commitments in place I've unfortunately had to change the evening of our open meeting. Instead of it being on Thursday 26th January, I've had to bring it forward to Wednesday 25th January.

Sorry for the inconvenience its at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub in Ruskington.

Thanks, Karl


UKAC

Time to start getting ready for the new season, a new season which brings us as a Club our first major meeting in 14 years, our last major Championship being the record breaking opening round of the BAS in 2003 at South Rauceby for which ironically was in similar conditions to our first meeting of last year, even more ironically our meeting last year was jokingly named BAS 0.5!

14 years later and we host the opening round of the UKAC, one for which we anticipate being a record breaker in it's own right while we clash with Ireland - the first time this has happened since the inauguration of the UKAC in 2014.

More details are set to be confirmed over the coming weeks and months with a lot of hard work already being put in.

Sponsorship opportunities are now available, please contact Tracey Rowland to find out more.

Tradestands are welcome, for details please contact Jason Baker.

For general queries, please feel free to contact Karl Bedford.

Looking forward to more success! Thanks, Jason

Thank You

I'd just like to say thank you so much to each and every one of you for supporting Trent today. Thank you to all who helped also to the drivers. Quote a few incidents today but I think everyone who was unfortunately involved is all okay, just a few bruises. All who's been involved running the meeting deserves a well pat on the back. Thank you once again to you all and hope to see you at our next meeting on the 9th of October.


31st July Details

We're pleased to confirm that we are racing this weekend at Grange Farm, Hougham, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG32 2AF. The weather is looking grand, can't quite believe how long this summer thing is lasting!

This is traditionally our best meeting of the year (altough if we can beat 223 drivers as we had at the beginning of the year, we'll be ecstatic!), with plenty of people wanting to race as they can't at the Nationals or for those who want final minute testing. Either way, this is normally a great meeting and we expect the same from this weekend.

We also welcome Radio Newark to the meeting this weekend as they come to have themselves a go at Autograss Racing following a successful story on Autograss a couple of weeks ago with the station.

Presentation Evening tickets will be available over the course of the weekend, please find Jason Baker to purchase. This meeting is the penultimate points round for Trent.

Any questions, feel free to contact either Karl Beford or Jason Baker, both set of contact details are available on the contact page of this website.

Times:
Gates Open: 12.00noon Saturday
Scrutineering*: 08.30 - 10.00am Sunday
Signing On*: 08.30am - 10.15am Sunday
Drivers Talk: 10.25am Sunday
First Race: 10.30am Sunday

* Will be run on Saturday for an hour if enough cars and interest to warrant.

See you all Sunday, Jason Baker, Secretary.


Points Online

I'm pleased to confirm that the points for the 2016 Club Championship are now online following our points meeting on Sunday.

ADULTS write up - After three rounds many were quite possibly expecting to see more of a gap at the top, however only 37 points separates 1st and 3rd place in the Tommy Crowden Memorial Shield. Although moving into the ladies this year, your two times Junior Club Champion Chloe Reynolds looks to move forward be the first person in many years to take the Adults Club Champion title in their first year out of Juniors. Adam Roplh lies in second, just 8 points behind your leader with your defending Champion, Ryan Sayer, lying third.

JUNIORS write up - having been part of the winning team in the Nev's County Cup Challenge, Sorren can now look to set his sights on the Junior Club Championship. After this weekend, Sorren lies 72 points ahead of second place Junior Mollie Richardson who may regret not being able to attend the first meeting. Ellis Kerry lies third and then we move to Emily Richardson and Allyssa Faunch who lie fourth and fifth respectively.

All points are now available on the Points page of this website, so head over and take a look! Any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Well done all, Jason Baker, Secretary.


Nev's County Cup Challenge

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2016 Nev's County Cup Challenge. Up over double the number of entries this year with a total of 12 teams entered - looking on the up going forward!

With all said and done it ended up that the defending Championships couldn't be beaten, having secured the trophy for the second time before the finals got under way.

So a big congratulations to your two times Nev's County Cup Challenge Champions:
Sorren Powell - T777 - Junior
Hannah Fletcher - SP102 - Lady
Marcus Fletcher - SP102 - Man

Can anyone beat them next year? Only time will tell!


Points Online

I'm pleased to say that the points are now online following our meeting on Sunday... it's taken a bit longer due to the circumstances surrounding the meeting. We've agreed that NO points will be gained for heat two for either the Class Championship or Tommy Crowden Memorial Shields (Club Championships) and therefore only your heat one points will be used. This is the fairest way to do this for all involved.

ADULTS write up - After two rounds of the Club Championship, it's still close at the top with just 18 points separating the top three. Stuart Whitehouse in T5 heads the way with 146 points. Stuart is well known for being one of the top drivers to beat, but in this Club Championship, his closest contender is actually a lady in the form of Chloe Reynolds in T630 just ten points behind Stuart with 136.. not content with being two time Junior Club Champion, Chloe now looks to take the challenge to Stuart for the Adults Shield in just her first Adult season. Steven Faunch lies third in the standings with 128 points, for a man who says so often "I just want to race and have fun" - he's sure showing he wants to be competitive at the top as well!

JUNIORS write up - As the only Junior so far to have attended both of the first two meetings, Sorren Powell heads the way in the Junior Club Championship with 80 points after his well deserved victory on Sunday. Ellis Kerry can breath a little lighter after not attending this meeting, falling just 13 points down from Sorren in Class and Club Championships with 70 points. Mollie Richardson is the top Junior Special, having only attended the last meeting so far but with a win straight away on the table slots her into third place with 55 points. Newcomers Allyssa Faunch in T513 and Emily Richardson in T592 hold the fourth and fifth spots with 28 and 21 points respectively after an impressive outing for both in adverse conditions.

All the points are now available on the Points page of this website, head over and take a look! Any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Well done all, Jason Baker, Secretary.


Club Meeting Request

Following numerous messages from Trent members, we'd like to know when you, the Members would like to see a Club Meeting held. Due to a committee meeting toward the end of next week, it would need to be following the BAS / UKAC weekend. Venue will be Ruskington as normal, but due to travel and this time of year - we'd like you to decide when this meeting will be... so let us know what works best for you and we'll try to work to that.

Note that the reason we no longer hold "regular monthly" Club Meetings is due to the lack of support that these meetings got. You as the Membership have asked for a meeting and we are happy to accommodate that, but we do ask for you to support these meetings.

If you have anything that you'd want discussed about the Whiterose Rose Bowl meeting from a Trent perspective, please put in writing to either Karl or myself so we can bring up at a Committee meeting / liase with Whiterose if needed.

Thanks, Jason Baker, Secretary.


Qualifiers Released!

Following the final round of National Qualifying at Trent on Sunday, we can now confirm the 2016 CGTRO National Qualifiers. Find out more on the League page of this website.


Query Update

Thanks to everyone who braved the conditions at the weekend, typically the track was drying out nicely just as the rain came and but a dampener on what was looking to be a day full of cracking racing.. Theoretically our next meeting on 31st July should be a lot better!!

Now to answer the questions everyone has been asking since the weekend..

POINTS- Due to the second heat ceasing half way through, the committee have yet to confirm how the points are being worked out, I'd hope that the points will be online by end of tomorrow evening.

PICS / VIDS- I'm not sure if anyone was at the meeting taking photos, but I do know that Jan Shaw was videoing the meeting. Take a look on YouTube for MDH Racing.

CLUB MEETING- A few of you have asked if we are due a club meeting. At this time, the committee felt there wouldn't be one in the near future. Of course, if you want to raise any issues / suggestions / queries feel free to put in writing to myself. My email is Jason.Baker@jbmarketing.org.uk.

QUALIFYING POINTS- I'll upload the points to this website tonight as well as also updating you on our league Qualifiers later on as well.

Thanks all, Jason Baker, Secretary.


Whiterose Marshalls

Woke up this morning and not expecting the turn out of cars we had today, 230 cars signed on.
Firstly, I'd just like to apologise for this morning for the stress and for the wait to get people pulled onto the field.
A huge thank you to the Trent members and CGTRO League from Sturton and Scunthorpe and also other Clubs who gave us their help too. Thank you for all your hard work you put in today, we couldn't of done this without you all. As Trent being a small Club, I think this may put Trent back on the map.

If I've missed anybody I do apologise, but each and every one of you I cannot thank you enough for what you have done today.

Hope to see you all Sunday!


July Two Day Meeting

We're pleased to inform you of an exciting new venture for the 2016 season.

Whiterose Club have contacted Trent and asked that they run a meeting at Trent's venue. Following discussions between both Clubs, it has been agreed that Whiterose will run the Trent two-day meeting at Trent's venue on 2nd and 3rd July 2016.

As most of you know, Whiterose have been without a track for some time now but that doesn't mean they aren't looking, nor wanting to run meetings. They have approached Trent as a Club that has supported Whiterose right through our time at Grange Farm and we are pleased to be able to support Whiterose in such a way, giving their committee and members the insight into running meetings ready for when they have their own.

This meeting has been christened "The Rose Bowl", those of you who have been involved in Autograss long enough will remember this traditional and well supported event run by the Whiterose Club when they last had a track. Hopefully it's reincarnation will be the start of great things to come for the Club.

More information will be available over the coming weeks and months with a full update for all Trent members at our Club Meeting (including licences) on Wednesday 20th January at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub, Ruskington.

Please note that the Saturday will be for Whiterose Club Championship points and the Sunday wil be for Trent Club Championship points - as it would have been if Trent were running the meeting.

Once we have fully updated our members and Whiterose theirs, more details will be published on the Trent and Whiterose Facebook and websites.

Racing starts at 11.00am, gates open at 12.00noon on Saturday. Come and enjoy some club racing before the BAS or UKAC, very friendly team. Hope to see you there and good luck to all that's left racing at the Nationals.

CGTRO Grand Prix Points

The Grand Prix Points have been updated following our meeting on Sunday.


Sunday 14 June - Points

Thank you to all that came to the meeting on Sunday, the points have now been updated. Albeit this is only round 2 of the Championship but Ryan Sayer in the Stock Hatch holds a steady lead in the Adults Tommy Crowden Shield and Chloe Reynolds in her Micra extends her lead to continue her mission of being the first ever double Junior Tommy Crowden Memorial winner.


Sunday 14 June - Update

As those around us will have realised, we have had some rain over Friday night and through today. Please be assured that we still intend to race tomorrow and we intend to stick by this. The weather has not affected as much as the nearest towns and with land that soaks quite well along with a far better forecast for tomorrow, we expect the dust to be flying in the second heat!

If you see any postings or comments suggesting that we have cancelled, please ignore unless posted on this website or by Karl Bedford. Any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to call Karl who is down at the Track.

So come down and join us for some Club Racing At It's Best!

Roll Cage Testing

NASA are considering holding some evening roll care measuring sessions. As with the last offer, this will only be made available if demand is high enough to warrant.

All cars taking part in either the Men's or Ladies & Juniors Nationals will have to be checked and passed before the respective event.

At the moment there are two available dates and venues. The first is at Blyton Park (Scunthorpe Race Venue). This will be on Tuesday the 9th June from 5.00pm until 8.30pm. The second will be one week later, 16th June, again from 5.00pm until 8.30pm. The venue for this occasion will be Bromsgrove, off Junction 5 of the M5.

The two dates and venues will be by appointment only, and will only go ahead if demand is high enough. After this, random testing will be taking place at race meetings across the country.

Anyone wanting to book in at either event will need to email or text Diane Tomkinson who will be co-ordinating the appointments on behalf of Vernon. Diane has requested that you not work due to her work commitments and that you either text or email with your Name, Car Number and a Contact Number for the person who is bringing their car. Diane's contact details can be found on the NASA Website.

Sunday 14 June

To confirm, our intention is to go ahead with the meeting scheduled for Sunday 14 June. The final decision as to the status of the meeting (regarding weather) will be made on Thursday 11 June. Confirmation as to whether the meeting is on or not will be posted here and the NASA website first. If there is no news on this website, please assume we are still racing.

Juniors- for the first time since we started at this track, trophies will be available for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the A finals of the Junior Saloons and Specials.
