2019 Astro Attack – Thank You

Good evening all,
I have just returned from the Nene and firstly can I thank all the Nene crew under Darren Smith’s aka Digger and Mark Coves aka Covey’s direction who spent many hours preparing the club for the 2019 Astro Attack and ready for the BRCA national in two weeks time.

Secondly can I thank all 67 drivers who attended on Saturday and those who turned up on Sunday to race and supported the clubs desirer to smash last years target and raise funds for this years charity which is close to my heart following the death of my father in law in May. 

I can confirm that despite the weather and the early termination on Sunday of the meeting once the raffle was drawn. We have managed to beat last years total and have managed to raise £2,400 at the meeting for the Alzheimer’s Society with this still rising, so thank you to the raffle contributors, ticket buyers, Digger for his time and effort in arranging the whole thing and to Louise not only for providing us with food over the weekend but selling the tickets for us too.

Once again we have bettered last years target and expect to donate £2500 to the charity. THANK YOU.

I also wish to thank Lee Baldry and the band members of Kermori for supporting our charity gig. Kermori thanks for a great Saturday night.

The club wishes to thank all who supported us trackside and it was nice to see an increase in juniors in both the 1:8 and Largescale groups, we hope it continues next year and due to the early finish we awarded top 3 trophies in both the 1:8 and Largescale overall as per the end of round 3 points.

1:8 – Nitro – Dave Williams, Ian Slater, Kieran Cox

Large Scale – Matt Buxton, Neil Sivins, Darren Smith

Our results are available on the clubs website under the “Results” menu or on RCM’s portal, myrcm.ch. Look under the archive tab for Nene Valley Raceway meetings.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Nene in the near future and at our 2020 Astro Attack over the weekend of the 26/27 September 2020 when we are supporting the Lullaby Trust – Book the weekend now!!

Once again from the Nene club, our entertainment leaders “Covey”, and “Digger”  THANK YOU.

Darren Worth
NVR Club Chairman
