As the weather looks good, we want to continue with laying our Astroturf on Saturday 14th. We will be starting about 8:30am but if you can join us anytime during the day we would appreciate it, even if it’s only for a couple of hours. It’s hard work moving the A/T around and laying it with just a few people. So no excuses, this will save you money because the new A/T is far less abrasive than the current A/T and your tyres will last much longer. So please support us by giving us a few hours of your time to help us improve the track.
see you there, TORCH Cm
Do not forget on the 1st October is our summer series round 5 full day race meeting open to everyone of any ability. This is also the final round of the summer before we start the winter season. See you track side!

Sat Nav Address
Poplars Farm, Curdridge Lane, Curdridge, Hampshire SO32 2BH.
When you are in Curdridge Lane, just after the 40 mph sign (when coming from Waltham Chase to the east) there is a turning on the left with a small wooden stake saying Poplars Farm, turn left into this turning and there should be a silver iron gate, which should be open, go down the dirt track, when you get to the bottom of it, we are just down to the right. From the west go past the Cricketers pub on your left and turn into the farm entrance on the right, 20 metres before the speed limit de-restriction sign. Please drive slowly on the approach to the track and be aware that we are on a working farm.
This Sunday 7th May is the second round of our 2wd mid south regional series which is being held at TORCH
Gates will be open at 7am, booking in from 7:30am, drivers briefing at 8am & controlled practice to start at 8:15am.
There will be an open class for 2wd/4wd for anyone not participating in our regional on the day. However at current there is only one entry for the open on booking in online and will not run for a few cars sorry, so we will open booking in on the day for a heat and see how we get on. Food catering is being possibly arranged locally so fingers crossed. We will confirm tomorrow night.
We look forward to seeing you all there. List as below for entry’s so far booking in closed Thursday evening.
