Rally Test Championship 2018

The 24/25 March event went well but we were short on marshals and lighting for the evening section. However the next two rounds are single day daylight events. It was agreed the Rally Test Championship would be a ring fenced as a standalone championship and would be decided on the best of 3 rounds but would count towards the club overall championship.


Club Magazine

Roger’s said the cost of printing black and white is 0.5p per sheet and not 0.07pence as previously stated. He also said that approximately 50% of members receive the magazine by post and it cost 58p each to send one. As agreed at the AGM it would be left up to Roger to decide how much colour printing to use in each issue.


Awards and Presentation

To be considered later.


Fire Extinguishers

Steven had received a quote for suitable fire extinguishers and it was agreed he would go ahead and order Qty 4.


Autotest Trophies

It was agreed we would provide trophies for overall and class winners on the day of the event in future. Steven suggested we get some mugs with the club logo on to award instead of small trophies and gave some prices. It was agreed Steven would go ahead and order some and hopefully have them available for the next autotest on the 20th of May.
