Record Attempt

For the first time it was made known generally the club will be going to set up a NEW NON STOP MOTORCYCLE RIDING RECORD and since then a team has been scraped together and looks something like this:

Phil FreestoneMick Ayriss
Eric TindallPaul Dunn (Reserve)
Rob GoddardKeith Williams
Paul DunnDave Smith
Dave StockerRichard Taylor
Dave ScrivensClive Hodgkin

Let's have lots of support from the Club Members who are not actually going to be running round like blue ar... flies on the day because if we don't get support the actual working squad will feel very much like the well built lady whose bra strap broke and that means the biggest let down since braces were invented.

Two dates have been made available to make our record attempt at Cadwell Park: The 8th September and the 25th September. This means that we shall have to travel to Cadwell on a Thursday night in time to start the attempt at approximately 9.00 am on Friday morning of either of the two dates chosen. This now means that we will return to Leicester on Saturday. Will all the people who are actually taking an active part in the attempt see Eric Tindall as soon as possible.
